Got all my stuff on Pinterest, just haven’t got my referral link on, doh!

Might blast a couple of bits on to deviant, although the site looks like it needs a full redesign.

Hi all, does anyone here still use Deviant Art to promote their work? I’ve had a profile on there for years and only ever uploaded one piece of work http://crs-ind-templates.deviantart.com/

I clicked on again recently and the sites looking really dated. Is it still worth investing time uploading portfolio items to the site?

Usually a guide price what I think my item is worth and asking for any feedback if required but if it’s just an update I just explain the changes made :)

Cool idea, I wonder if they pay attention to your price suggestion. I’m not sure how they price, I presume it follows some sort of matrix for magazines, not sure how much leeway they have in regards to their opinion on its quality.

You can use the preview image with watermark on. Photodune is pretty dam cheap though, small images are only $1

I’m always torn. I want to put a joke in, but don’t want to piss the reviewer off with anything before he’s reviewed my item!

So I usually end up leaving it blank!

This sounds like a way to get a free logo?

I agree, separate items first. The value of your bundle will never be the same as the total individual item price. Also you can cross promote the bundle in the description of each individual item!

I think that in the flyers category buyers just look at the newest items. There is no longevity here.

Other categories may be more immune to that, but there’s so much going on in the flyers category that unless you are one of the very top authors I think they only sell during a very short life cycle.

That’s just my impression, I only have a couple of (party) flyers in my portfolio so I’m not speaking of experience, just the impression I get from clicking around in this marketplace.

Cheers

Chris

I don’t know about flyers, but this is true in the categories I work in. And the quantity of flyers going into that category I’d be suprised if it wasn’t the same apart from a few exceptions. Hard to find a niche in that area that you can achieve sales with after your items moved past page 3 of you know what I mean.

Maybe they should have bought an extended licence? :)
