Hi guys!

I’ve really enjoyed designing stuff for graphicriver the last month since I started selling here.

The problem is that I’ve invested quite a bit of time in each item and sales are very stagnant.

Anyone have any tips on what to create, how to sell, etc. to help a new seller out?

Thanks!

Hi ramijames. You need to increase amount of your files. The more items you have the greater chance you have to sell it. Don’t forget to advertise your work. You can start with stand alone portfolio or use social media (or even combine it – use your imagination here :) ). Just do your job, everything needs some time. Check the best selling authors, follow them and read between lines ;)

Hello!

Also I would add that artwork tends to sell well but over a period of time.

For example when I uploaded one of my items I had very few sales in the first month but 1 year later I have over 50 sales.

Say for example your pig illustration, which is very nice. Next month a news story might break about pigs and you might see an increase in your sales due to this fact. There is alot of variables involved…

And like Demorafoza said build up your portfolio and you will see an increase in sales.

Goodluck!!!!!

Hey ramijames. I think we are in the same boat ;) I struggle with sales as well. Atm the only tips I can give are: be consistent, and give it some time. I am sure you will get sales if you continue uploading ;) Also make sure to share on twitter, facebook, and any design sites you belong to! This will help ;) Good luck man!

I also think it import to try and do something a little different, to many times the same things get constantly recycled. All great ideas above!

Yes, try to keep the quantity/quality balance. Be consistent on the quantity but never degrade quality.

Also, try experimenting in different categories. Some sell better than others, and its a great way to expand your design skills by trying something different. You don’t need a massive portfolio to earn a decent amount, just quality items.
