It becomes a pyramid purchase, you can't just get one and expect to climb. It has to be consistent, and a lot. And it would be super expensive to just randomly buy work from people with no promise of return. Sort of like the birthday pool at work, you give to each person, and then when its finally your turn - you get nothing, as if you didn't exsist.
I don't buy my work, I have no room for it. I certainly won't invest in others.
Sales only really affect your own image rankings, when a customer taps on the shop icon on our premium AW and selects a product then chooses a collection your top selling images will appear first, we’d need mega sales to have any impact on faa rankings.
I am having my condo painted in the next few months. One of my living room walls will become the main focus with a slightly darker color than the rest of the room. I am going to buy one to four of my own pieces..ONLY.... I am thinking of buying wood prints. I have older furniture in wood and a few fake beams running up my sloping ceiling.
More than you needed to know? I am such a tease. I wont charge myself much.
@Bob: which brings us to the question: does it not make any difference, if you buy note cards or a huge canva in ranking? One side in me says, there should be a big difference in ranking, the other side says: Lets buy note cards, if the ranking goes up the same LOL
I buy from others whenever I feel moved to do so. To increase sales rankings I bust my bottom marketing myself ALL of the time. I also consistently create new work. Hard work seems to be quite effective in my experience.
Its possible, I did find a large image which could be free. Or it was uploaded by a person that didn't know what they were doing. In any case it won't print because it too small, crooked and has the background showing. You are much better off at making your own stuff and selling that. Customers like consistency in work, and grabbing it from random sources, free or otherwise, won't help you out in the long run.
