I Always Get A Print Sale When I Comment Here

It seems that my buyers are hanging out in the forum.

So, here I go again. It seems to work for me maybe it will work for you. Saying hi to all and hope you are having a great day.

Now, let the print sales roll in. Lol

You try it. Comment below and say hi and see if it doesn't bring in print sales.

Spreading some sales vibes right now.....(((((((((((((((((((((( ....can you feel it? ((((((((((((((((

Everyone...well, not everyone... has some ritual they do before a game to make their football team win or whatever to cause a positive result for something that they think works. What is yours? I mean besides actual marketing.

Hi Jani! As much as I've posted in the Irma discussion I would be writing checks like crazy to Harvry's people if that was true of my customers!

Hi, Kathy, I'm thinking...perhaps...that my buyers are the silent readers of my posts. Maybe some actually comment.

We all have a tribe somewhere. Mine seems to be invisible until...Poof! A sale happens and I'm like, who was that? Where'd they go? I'd really like to meet them. The nature of POD sites. Sigh!

Hello, Alice, nice to meet you.
Thank you for following. :-)

Oh, and the carousel horses look great printed on metal. Just sayin'... :-)

Hi there Jani... I'll test your theory out, it's worth a try!

Hello, Jen, yes ma'am. Everything is worth a try once. Say a bit about yourself. A neat trick you can do or something.

If I got a sale every time I commented here I'd be a top seller.

Jani, you're one lucky lady! I make 2-5 responses to threads on here at least 350 days out of the year... and no, that is certainly not my rate of sales :) I just love the social and helping aspect of this forum, and it's an engrained part of my day now after 5 years. And my activity here is mostly me "paying it forward", for all the help given to me in so many ways, and in so many circumstances over the years :)

Wouldn't it be something though, if every response triggered a sale? My waking thought would be "wonder which one will sell today? instead of "Gah! Freakin' marketing...I still hate it" :)

Hello, Jai, glad to hear you are doing okay. Stay dry.

Hi Joy. Hi Steven. Hi Phyllis.

Maybe it is because I only comment sometimes. :-)

Joy, what I hear is that sales happen through building relationships. Positive ones. Not actually being a salesperson. That works in the original art world. Not sure how that works in the print world when your tribe is invisible lIke mine is, but I am game.

I get a sale every time I go away somewhere. Weird but it happens every time, and I am certainly not on the computer while away

 

Marlene Burns

me too, Brian!
Collectors must be able to sniff out when I leave town......and of course, they need specs, images, and details I don't travel with! lol

Val Arie

Hi Jani! I wish it was that simple too!

I'm wondering how many of us are going to go check that little money bag icon?

edit: takes me so long to type...but I always get sales after being away too...don't have to go anywhere ...just not on the computer.

Hello, John, welcome.

So what do you do, guys and gals? What makes you tick? Give an elevator speech of what you do.

I have an idea. Something to get the relationship ball rolling.

Describe what you do as an artist or describe your day job very badly.

I'll go first. About my day job not my art. (Phyllis don't tell)

I enter people's houses in broad daylight while they are away and go through their things thoroughly for a few hours so as not to miss anything.
Before I leave, I wipe away all fingerprints and take their money.
What am I?

 

Jani Freimann

1 Year Ago

Hello, Marlene, Brian, and Val.

Marlene and Brian: then you two need to beat it and go on vacation...no, just kidding. Stay.

I forgot about the sales that happen when I go on vacation. Not every time, but many times.

I check my money bag all the time. I'm overly hopeful I guess. :-)

Hello Jani, are you suppose to give away your secret, but then again hummmm great observation. Now does anyone want to guess how many sales I made last year appearing in the discussions? Good luck everyone!!! Something I did note though when I copy and post in image post that works for sure......

Hello, Arletta.

Hello, Michael. Sharing is good.

I have another game:

This one is to discover your stripper name.
What is the name of your first pet?
What is the name of the first street you lived on?
Mine is Spooky Winona

And no, I'm not trying to get your password to anything and no that is not my password. :-)

Laughing at Hartmut's tooth fairy comment. :-)
Feel free to post your images here.

Timothy, so far emails, social media (and messanger), booth shows, art shows, and ads are my avenues, but I am not an expert yet. I actually get random sells from people who have found my websites too. Probably an even mix across the board of in person sales to social media to website sales. Still working on figuring out the best way.

Had a pop up show this past weekend and had a few more sales. One of which was a print of this image. A man bought it for his mother. She loves poppies and another man who was with him was joking about the reasons that she loved poppies. Something about an Opium addiction; which was a joke. We ended up laughing about it, but I guess you would have had to be there to find it funny too. They had been drinking wine and it made them very silly in a funny way.

There was wine a plenty that day. Another man, who was also holding a glass of wine, asked me to ask him how old he was so I did. He said, 25. His girl friend smacked him on the arm, "Shut up! You are not." I told him he looked 25. He said thank you and then told him I was 60; which I am not. He then signed my book saying he would be interested in a commission. Not sure if he will remember that he wanted me to paint him something.
The sales fairy likes to provide wine at art gatherings because she knows that wine and art go together...unless they drink too much. Then they don't buy and they don't remember conversations.

I sold two original painting today for the same buyer, one a Cardinal painting from my Bird Paintings Collection, another is a Portugal themed watercolor about the Belem Tower in Lisbon.
I am very very happy for these sales, as normally I sell more cat art :D

I haven't gotten a sale from posting here but last week did get one from someone doing a search on Bing and they found the photographic capture that inspired them enough to purchase a print of it.
