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

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.

132,000+ "visitors" and 17,862 comments on 212 images and counting.

The other day, Randy Cross, three-time Super Bowl Champion (SF 49ers SB XVI, XIX, XXIII) liked on Twitter and retweeted my Yosemite photo of Half Dome to his 31K+ followers. Truly honored and blessed. To GOD be the glory!

[Edit:] This is a good reminder to make sure to have proper keywords and write a good, descriptive caption for each image, so that people can find artwork for which they are searching. When I comment/like and/or fave other's artwork, I like to compliment those of you who take the time to write good descriptions. It shows you care about your work. :-)

I achieved my 100th sale today with a print sale of of one of my Sawtooth autumn image to a buyer from Boise, ID. I am really proud of this milestone. I am with FAA for little over 4.5 years and really love FAA. I hope my next 100 sales will be faster than my first 100.

I surpassed 125 sales this month. I was reminded of that when I received my PayPal deposit from FAA yesterday.

Next milestone will be 600 images (hopefully by month end, currently at 597). My major goal is 1,000 by year end.

April 18 marks my 7th anniversary here on Fine Art America. In those 7 years, I have had > 707,000 visitors, >150 different images sold (some with several sales each), >9,000 comments, and many, many thousand likes and/or loves. I certainly don't rank among the most successful here but for one who started making art just 7 years ago, I am very satisfied.

 

I did manage to hit that goal of 600 images posted by month-end. I am currently at 614. A week vacation in Myrtle Beach, SC, last week put me over my goal.

I hit 900 images yesterday. I have been stuck in the 800s for years. Some day I won't have work and music in the way. I am hoping I reach 1,000 a bit faster.
