I have been selling graphics and illustrations online since last 18 years now!
Phew that is a lot of time! I have faced my part of frustration, times of feeling a complete failure, “I cant do this anymore” thoughts.
I have also questioned myself a thousand times is this the right path for me? Am I wasting time? Should I quit and just go get a job?.
And during that time there had been times when I had felt really down. To this day as I grow my online business. I wished that there was someone whom I can connect with daily to get support from. I have tried to find a mentor who could guide me step by step through the process. Someone who already has a successful product base business that they have created themselves from ground up and guide me through the process of selling graphics online.
I wished for so long that someone could take me by the hand telling me what to do next. Someone who “gets” what I want . I have learned from best coaches and signed up for mentor-ship in the areas of Mindset, Energy Alignment, Product Creation, POD selling, Facebook advertising, SEO, Content Creation, Social Media for LinkedIn , Social Media Mastery for Twitter, for Pinterest and many more………They all had the skillset and are expert in their own specific field but in the end I had to myself Pick and Apply , modified strategies that fit for my business.
I will be sharing various Areas of the big puzzle which include , Mindset practices, Creating Content, Tips on staying aligned to your purpose and tutorials on how to get your product in front of greater audience.
Thing is that it is all part of the journey, I have spent last 16 years on this path… times have changed, and things change constantly. One day you will wake up to find facebook algorithum has changed, other day twitter approach changes. It was so easy 16-7 years back to hear a “Cha- Ching ” but today we are into more competition. Just like the world out there ” It is a Jungle Out here” in enterprenural world online and you must have skills to move forward. And when you think you have learned something, it changes and you have to do it all over again.!
Welcome to the Jungle!
I have successfully run a service based business where I sell Website Design and other graphic designer services. I have created and sold successfully, mindset workbooks and Printable invitations. I have successfully run POD websites bringing me constant earnings, I have successfully created and run a self hosted, Product based business . All these bring me consistent revenue. And while it still does, I strongly feel that THIS IS THE TIME .
Things are going to change and NOW is the time to get your skill and Art in front of as many people as you can, in order to earn a steady income stream.
So I have decided to compile a series of posts that will give an overview for a complete newbie or someone who is already selling graphics and Art online but are not sure where they are going to take it . Or , how they can scale their current Art business.
Here is what you will learn in the coming posts (Direct links will be updated once posts are published):-
