Selling Is Hard Work!

It occurs to me that many people have lots of online places they sell.  I have two.  Etsy and ArtFire.  It makes me crazy keeping up with them!  HOW do you guys who have several places manage?  It must be an all day affair.  Get up, drink coffee, sit at the computer.  Eat lunch, go back to the computer, eat dinner, go back to the computer.  Get up the next day, drink coffee and sit at the computer.
Makes me tired thinking about it.  Right now I'm having a break from editing a zillion photos.  Sigh....  This one came out super, tho.  I love this!  What do you think?

Absolutely gorgeous Moe! :)

I have several shops (three, plus my website which I am going to add a store to), and do best with my Etsy Shop. You're right, and I agree... I think it is hard work to keep more than one shop out there ~ and for them to be noticed. I put most of my energy into my Etsy shop and would love enough time to put that much energy into all my shops!

Oh, and I LOVE the way you photographed your bracelet too!!

Beautiful bracelet Moe and I love how you photographed it. I sure wish there was an easy way to sell, but there is so much competition out there. We just have to do the best we can.

Mahalo, Pammie! I love the wide cuffs, too. And not a bead in sight. :)

Thanks, Trina! Years ago I got the coral from Waikiki Beach. I finally found a use for it. :)

BOOT! ::::kicks Jax out of the way:::: :D

MoeArt said...

Thanks, Ipo. The colors came out just right! :)

MoeArt said...

You're entirely right, Sandy. I just wish I were one of those people who just LOVES to sell. As fun as it is to write, I don't even like writing the descriptions for my creations. I need an agent! :D xoxo

Kathi said...

hey Ipo...why don't you find an "assistant" to do all that for you. A friend of mine placed an ad for an assistant/intern to do all that sort of stuff for a small wage and shazam...now she is creating and her assistant is doing the web work

Janie said...

Oh I hear ya clay pal! I have three sites and a blog now. It's to much! Takes away from creating. I like Kathi's idea. Now, if only I knew someone who could photo without having to teach them...

Love the bracelet!

OK. I finally got here. Love the cuff. I am still selling at local shows, at work (schools), at the pool and when someone says "bring your stuff". Not an ideal marketing plan. But at my age (way past retirement) that is all I have energy for.

Yep, it would be nice to have someone else to do all that but you'd have to pay them. OIKS!
