Selling and Buying art is hard.
Selling and Buying art is hard.
Buying art is a highly visual process. Holds true both online and off.
This is why you, artist all struggling to get some real sales going.
Unfortunately, the way that artists are trying to sell art online is designed to fail.
Because in order to sell art online, you need an eStore that is designed to sell art and nothing else or use sites like Saatchi, Artfinder etc..
This is really important, so let me explain.
London-listed Hiscox estimated the value of global online art sales at $3.7 billion in 2016 and will reach $9.14 billion in 2021
Not only is the market HUGE, but online sales are reshaping the art business.
According to the BBC, more art is now sold online than in galleries.
The stereotype of younger people being more tech-savvy is, according to Hiscox, simply not true. Most art buyers aged over 65 had bought art directly online.
What if you only offer original art? Or limited editions?
Are those selling online too?
You better believe it.
UGallery.com, Saatchi.com, Artfinder.com are few examples of a websites completely dedicated to selling original art.
They’ve had year-to-year growth averaging over 62% since 2008 and wait
What about Commision?.
Saatchi charge Artist's almost 50%+ in Commission. .
Artfinder and Ugallery around 30%-35% in Commission. .
Even after this, it is not guaranteed that you will make sell
“you need to build credible SEO in order to get into top search results of these websites and only few artist make most of it”
This is simply outrageous
Justpaintings proposed model is around 15%.
Through careful use of social media, Justpaintings was able to tap Biggest Cities like
New York and London.
A simple Google search for “buy original art” reveals an increasingly-crowded field of companies moving quickly to capture market share in this space.
Clearly the online art market is both large, growing, and an opportunity for all artists to capitalize on.
Which takes us back to why you need an eStore that is actually designed to sell art and nothing else.
A pretty portfolio site doesn’t work.
Don’t take our word for it. Ask the tens of thousands of artists who have these sites right now and sell next to nothing.
Neither does a generic, one-size-fits-all eCommerce store.
Some buyers couldn’t fully grasp what the art would look like on canvas, fine art paper, or metal
…so they just didn’t buy.
Meanwhile…individual artists are finding it harder and harder to make sales.
They’ve brought sticks and stones to a gunfight.
It’s affecting their sales both online and offline.
