Increase Sales Rankings

Each month, buy a small piece of another artist work.

But only if you really like it and really want it.

Very nice thought, but I don't think one sale would really make much of a difference in that artist's ranking.

I don't even purchase my own work. :(

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.

Theoretically, if everyone did that... everyone would get the same bump; therefore, no one would get any bump.

In the nine years I have been here, I have seen all kinds of schemes to boost search rankings.

The only one that really works is to advertise outside of FAA and bring back buyers from the greater overall marketplace to buy your work.

But if you would like to experiment, you can buy some of mine. I'll let you know how it went.

Note cards are cheap. Buy a few of mine and we'll test your theory. If I see a big bump I may even return the favor. ;)

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

Wish our sales like old days here...

Kall3bu, I have had small sales and seen pretty dramatic rank increases from them. But like you, I'd expect a bigger sale to have more effect. But the system may consider a sale a sale. Who knows?

What was different in the "old days" in the Xueling Zou?

How about just creating quality work that buyers want to purchase that stands out from the crowd?

Create great work and market it so people see it. No need for tricks.

I think that is a very nice idea but unless you bought a lot of work from one artist I doubt it would do much.

One thing I noticed, and don't know if I am noticing correctly or not, but sales seem to increase the ranking of the piece sold - not the artist over all. This is what I have seen with my own work.

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.

 

I need more art pieces that are not my own for decor and appreciation, I am currently saving up to buy original pieces from artists on this platform.

Spot on, Sharon, hard work never goes out of fashion.

@ mahmoud - that egyptian scene is too small, and appears to be a photograph of a poster? Is that right?

The work has to be your own. You also need an avatar.

This could be public domain but Mike is right, you need to be careful.

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.
