@SeraphimChris Don’t you think this was a bit patronizing?

The only sentence in your post inline with this thread would be:


... don’t try to copy other artist works, it devalues the marketplace when the same style is seen on 20 accounts.

That is the only point worth debating about.

By the way, I think 20 years plan mostly don’t work out, unless you have some contract with God (or the other guy) :evil::bigsmile:

Actually no, I wasn’t trying to be patronizing at all. The point I was trying to make is, think outside of the box, and find new ways to accomplish success within the marketplaces. Think ahead and not just for today. Produce and you’ll reap the rewards overtime. After all, the post is about “Sales Income Strategy” and I gave a transparent view of mines. So my dear, every point I made had to do with this thread. :)

Why is a 20 year plan so far fetched to you? Isn’t it wise to plan ahead? My plan will work, and has worked for me thus far. :) and yes, Jesus is involved. ;););) If anyone want to plan for only a year, then by all means I suggest that they do that, beside that’s how my 20 year plan started out, until I saw a bigger picture.

Hi Guys and Gals! :)

This marketplace is about longevity, some of you might have to change your mentality about this. I have a plan mapped out for the next 20 Years.

Think of your store/account like a Gas Station. A Gas Station sells mostly petroleum fuel, but inside of the station are many other products ranging from chewing gum, lotto tickets, beverages and so on with different price structures, ranging in quantity and production quality. So quantity, is important along with quality IMHO, which brings me to my next point.

I have over 700 files in my portfolio, in categories that were basically baron when I first started two years ago. Most peoples strategy is: get 50 or better sales right away for quick income on all of their files. My strategy is: create items that will sell for years even if it’s a little at a time. Also, by producing so many items, my quality has improved. I even go back from time to time and improved the design of some of my old files, and the sales increase where they were none.

My advise is to see what the market place needs and acquire the skills to develop the product, then you will have success. Spend quality time on your items and use common sense, don’t try to copy other artist works, it devalues the marketplace when the same style is seen on 20 accounts.

They are so many unique items to create other than flyers! I can’t give you all the suggestions, because I have some plans of my own, but try and diversify a bit, and you’ll see what I mean. Plenty of people have wrote me, asking to place items on the marketplace that they had a hard time finding.

I’ll leave it at that. Have a great day! :)
