    Hi, is anyone out there successfully selling their artwork or photography using RedBubble?

    I just published the Hub "How to make money by selling artwork or photography online with RedBubble" <snipped - do not promote hubs int he forums>

    If so, please let me know your username and I will follow you big_smile

      I have had a redbubble account for a few months now. I haven't sold any art (paintings), but I only have a few pieces up and not all her for sale.

      I'm not too active anyway, and haven't sold anything. I have a deviantart account for 6+ years, and sold one or two things there...hah. But, I find redbubble to be a more professional, and talented group, so I am confident that anyone who is persistent will sell something and make some good art connections.

      My username is iroti.

      I used to have a Redbubble account and it rarely generates any sales.

    Climberjames, I checked out RedBubble and whilst it looks a very interesting concept it appears as though its artwork photography rather than photography.
    Have I understood their website correctly?

      Hey, I guess artwork photography sells better . . .

      Hi, Martin (RedBubble cofounder) in answer to your question is that all sorts of things sell - straight photography, design, digital art. You can put up whatever you produce and provided you are active and promote yourself you will most likely sell.

      Have you tried Deviant Art? you can sell prints of your art work there and it has a good forum smile

        I tried Deviant Art years ago but found it really strict on the ctegory that art is posted, has this changed much?

      I know people who use Deviant art,and was thinking about signing up there.
      I am spread so thin now,my artistic juices are flowing the last few weeks and have been posting many more photos and designs in my zazzle shop.smile

      I don't yet have a redbubble account, but I have a good few zazzle accounts and I regularly sell stuff on ebay, especially tattoo art and other funky designs, but particularly I am concentrating on seasonal designs for my zazzle stores as this is where the money is.

      If you wait until people find you, you'll be in for a very long wait, that's why I suggest you spread yourself out on the Internet and get as many accounts that either link to your main arts website or some other site of interest.

      I'll be getting a redbubble account, as I've perused it often enough, but you can find other alternatives to show off your artwork for sale....in fact, this is worthy of a hubpage!!!

      If you are really determined, there are many places where you can sell your art and photography online. But the competition is very tough these days.

      Someone used to tell me this - cream always comes to the top.

      There are many sites you can upload and sell your art - but you need to be active at the site and promote yourself.

      I agree with elayne001. Sadly, it's not about the quality of your art. It's all about marketing, SEO, etc.

      Very greatfull topic this is, and I started to look around some sites, and for now I choosed for Fine Art America. This one looks good for me, en looks like they are selling stuff as wel. So hopefully I wil start to sell some stuff of my own as well.

      Thanks for the great tips and greetings from Norway!

      If you are a talented photographer or illustrator, try using some of the most well known websites to generate sales:

      Check www.istockphoto.com, www.fotolia.com

      In my experience, those two have many relevant visitors and I personally know artists that are making significant amounts of money by offering artwork on those two websites.
