Faa Milestones

Please let us know about your recent FAA milestones. If its 100 views, 100 artworks posted or 100 comments on a great work of art.

Its good to have milestones and to celebrate them knowing that all the hard work and late nights it took you to get from A to B with positive results.

I'm glad to be part of FAA and I would like to celebrate everyones growth on FAA.

My recent milestone which encouraged this post is reaching my first 10 000 views. Its been just over a year and although views don't say much becuase many can be artificial. I.E. looking at your own art. I'm still glad to celebrate this milestone on FAA. Thank you all for the comments and for this great platform. Nothing like it.

Interesting idea for a thread.

I finally hit 2500 images.

good thread!

 

Thanks JC, I'm glad you like the idea. It could be quite fun to see what people post.

Wow 2500, that is amazing. So many images. I'm sure it took a while to get there.

I love how the internet is constantly evolving and how we as artists are a part of it. We evolve and FAA is constantly evolving by adding more and more features etc. Its really great.

We are collectively part of a very dynamic work of human art. :) This collective social art sharing site is in itself a work of modern social art.

FAA is a milestone in human social artistic interaction.

 

Thanks Jessica.

I turned 50 years old today and I feel like it. Real milestone for me with all the medical problems I've had over the years.

Wow Sharon your collection is unstoppable. A steamroller that will squash us all. Well done. Nice work from the little I just looked at.

On July 4th I Celebrated my 6th year at Fine Art America.

Since joining in 2009, although I got a slow start and some paychecks have been quite small I have only missed a total of 8 - FAA paydays.

Very happy to still be here ( and to still be on the planet ). I have truly enjoyed my experiences and what I have learned from the many talented people here.

I like milestones, too, even if I don't know they are such until I arrive at them :)

In the past 2-3 months, I have had a number of firsts: European sale, repeat customer, review posted (that I know about), phone cover sale, and throw pillow sale. I have also had my first return and my first cancelled order (which was re-ordered a day later but differently) and it's good to have those under my belt :)

Two I'm trying to get to right now are 100,000 visitors (you can ignore your own IP address, Michael - option is at top of Visitors count page) and 1500 images. I'm at at 92,000 and 1374.

On June 17 I am proud to say I made my best work to date, Acts of War. My work had been developing.

From June 24 to July 6, I created 15 new works. I am gearing up for Christmas. With images that are not purely photography
supposedly as you get to 30 to 50 images you are getting towards a full portfolio to sell from. I began on Sept 1 last year with no images.
So I am getting somewhere. I began a new series, The Rustic Series, yesterday.

Paid all monthly bills (including 2 mortgages) with FAA after tax money, and still had enough to put some in the bank. Now the next month it didn't happen, but if I did it once....I can do it again!

 

MARTY SACCONE

6 Years Ago

I've been here a bit over 2 years,.... and have gotten about 25 or so sales on prints and greeting cards from buyers browsing.

I'm my own best customer,...having purchased 32 prints and 295 greeting cards.

Am not at a break even point yet,...but getting closer by the year ;-)) I hope

I enjoy the creative aspects of creating the best in each of my images and improving my FAA premium website as I grow along ;-)

I try to present new and different pieces that set themselves apart from run of the mill images and over done subjects.

Unfortunately I have chosen a narrow theme of interest,..(Down East Maine),...and therefor have limited subject interest.

FAA is the only site I display my work to sell online.

I am not active on social networks nor do I market myself as I could,...so that hurts my sales and exposure.

I derive a great deal of satisfaction from a portfolio I am proud of,....and have worked very hard to create and pull it all together.

Have especially enjoyed new friendships in various forums and groups here,....the talent and opinions expressed on FAA have helped me grow and improve each day.

FAA is a very enjoyable adventure for this guy in his retirement years.

Reached a number of milestones last month:
200 pictures, 20,000 views, 100 followers, 600th view on 1 picture. Most importantly I made my first sale.
Yesterday I set a new high for views in 24 hours with 317.
9 hours into today I already have 146 - could be on for a new record!

I'll have my 5th year completed, starting my 6th on the 18th of this month. I'm trying to hit 3,000 images by the end of the year. I have 42 to go. That's after deleting over 500 images since I started that were not up to snuff. It's easier to tell now what will print and what won't. If I could just figure out what sells :-). Although, the Michigan landmark and shorelines sell better for me than any of the others, which I guess is a good thing since that's where I live....

The other day I hit 20,000 views, at least according to my profile page, "behind the scene's" says something different.

Jim,

Nice image and I believe that white flower is a type of rose, maybe a wild rose or even a type of Cherokee Rose, for your keywords....

I uploaded my 1100th image this evening - plus had a sale at nearly the same time to "celebrate" the milestone.

Upload #1100 is a photograph in a simulated charcoal edit of a (nearly) 70 year old tractor that is still in service at a farm near our home.

I have been here at FAA for about 9 months now. I had my first sale about 3 days ago which I was really happy about. Now I have over 6000 visits to my site here at FAA. I don't pay much attention to my pixel site as it gets few visits.

One more thing I forgot to add. John Hughes I can't tell the size of that flower, but it looks a lot like my blackberry flowers. It could be some kind of berry.

Pretty sure that flower of his, John Hughes, is a type of wild rose, Small White Rambling rose, Rosa Multiflora.....

Just about to list my 50th artwork/photo.
1 image sold as cards and notebook.
Going to add up my views by collection to see if any stand out for further additions.

The first sale sourced from my new objective art account.

A 16 x 24 inch metal print of my TIPPING PINT - CELL PAINTING.

Wall Art

This metal print is passing through my hands to be annotated and signed (on the reverse), before I hang it for a local collector. A super print manufactured by the Pixels UK print shop. May there be many more!

What a fantastic month August of 2021 has been for me --by far the best month I've ever had on FAA. For many who have previous posted in this Discussion thread, my "success" ranges from meager to modest --at most. But for me, it is utterly fantastic! Up to now, I have done little to no marketing on social media mainly because I am "technically challenged" -- so this month has been really special for me.

After 29 months on FAA (beginning in March of 2019) I have:
uploaded nearly 900 images

had over 32,000 visitors -- 4,500 in August alone

1,200 comments 313 in August "

over 100 favorites. 333 in August "

165 Followers 36 in August "

And to top it all off, Abbie honored me by selecting me for the Artist Spotlight. I will never have another month like this and I am most appreciative of the artists of FAA because the vast majority of those comments and favorites came from you all. Thank you!!!

Don't care how "easy uploading car stuff" is....10,601 images uploaded is beyond my comprehension! You have to have more images on FAA than any other single individual, I can't imagine anyone having more. And as you know, I just hit 900 a couple of days ago.

Congratulations, my man!

2500+ is the bulk of what I want to share right now. So, I can now focus on new enquiries and new outcomes. If / when the new outcomes make the grade, I will add them for print. In the meantime - enjoy what's here. Everything is transient..!
