This is my first time attempting to sell online at Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and through the internet. I began by reading an article online stating that you could start selling your products on Pinterest. I have been very interested in selling my products in that platform and I had set up a business account so that I could do this. I had originally set up an individual account in Pinterest which I converted to a business account with the sole purpose of selling my original fine art paintings in the future. I am very excited about the possibility of selling my original fine art paintings in Facebook and Twitter. I have a Facebook account at facebook/rossana.kelton and have been looking forward to showing my latest fine art creations on Facebook. This was originally an individual account which I converted to a business account. I am excited at the possibility of finally selling my products through the Facebook channel. I am also looking forward to selling on Twitter. I have a Twitter account, https://twitter.com/keltoncofineart and I am looking forward to showcasing my fine art creations on Twitter for sale. I realize that it will take more than just placing a tweet with the Shopify information to sell on this platform. I think that socializing and meeting new artists and customers will also help. My main goal is to sell all my original fine art paintings so that I can begin to work on abstract landscaping and working in Plein air like the original impressionists worked. These are my news as of July 13, 2016. I will continue to post as I continue to add more products to my new
Shopify store: rossanakeltonartist.myshopify.com
I have to say that I have been trying to sell on Etsy for the past ten years and I have not had any luck selling my original fine art paintings there. I have worked on improving my site, performing new research to view other more successful sites and I have not had the same success. I finally removed my site from Etsy but I am considering starting a site again. I just feel that I have not been able to get as many sales as Ebay, for example. The only problems with Ebay is that after they changed their policies multiple times I made a decision not to sell my art there. I was not very comfortable with their new policy of sending the items to the customer right away. I have been burned in Ebay before with customers that sent payments that were fake (do not accept checks on Ebay any more, only Paypal). All I have to state is that I hope that everything goes well and that this new venture with Shopify is successful. If any one wants to comment, I am open for suggestions.
