Thats right, buy my work and Ill pay YOU 25%. Just kidding of course, but interesting to see these promotions targeted at fellow artists pop up. Following the different threads to see if they yield any results :)
I'm with Angel,
I have had other artist say they wanted my work and gave them a discount code to use at that time and have also traded works. But thought this was a better idea that Angel came up with. :)
It is a great idea, I havnt had any responce yet on mine but will certainly be keeping the codes for future purchases, I'm looking forward to getting one I used a code for, gonna start my FAA wall of my favs:)
might be a good one for the suggestion list....i have made some books, from companies that also do prints and giclees, and my e mail box is filled with regular coupon codes for discounts on future orders..and i take advantage of them!
Well some may recall I had my work available at any size where I make $5 only no mater what size you buy. Well I now changed my mind and have again really raised the profit. I figure if I do sell that print in about 5 years I may as well get more then 5 bucks for it, even if it is only a print. Am I worried about upsetting buyers, no if they did not buy cheap they have no business complaining if I raise the price, there was no down left, only up .
I'm not desperate Dan. Have you seen the prices on my work? I definitely value it.
I'm offering it as a gift to FAA members who enjoy my work...it has nothing to do with desperation or a lack of my own value.
I didn't make it a public discount code, I put it in a private thread.
Marlene. He did do some promotions on specific images. Remember, they were on the top of the front page. I think Beth's crow image made it there once. But he only did a couple and then stopped. He had asked for people to step up to volunteer for the effort, but wanted people who were solid marketers. He ended up getting a bunch of people who said they weren't good at marketing but would like to be on the front page.
@Dan - true but everyone likes [to think they're getting] a bargain. Were you never pushed into a purchase by a sale price? My daughter loves buying that £60 dress for £40 in the sale. Guess what, it cost £5 to make ... Pricing is mostly arbitrary.
HOWEVER - and this is why I was browsing discount code threads... how do you market a discount code. Say I go for 50% off. Off what? I have no idea how much the customer will actually pay because the bulk of the cost is fixed by FAA so the cost depends on the precise product. To say "50% off my profit" sounds remarkably lame.
