Im April habe ich es bereits geschafft, 11 T-Shirts auf dem deutschen Amazon-Markt zu verkaufen. Imemr noch kein Brüller, aber es wird so langsam. Diese Designs habe ich teilweise mehrfach verkauft:

It’s finally here, after almost one year of uploading to and selling on Amazon Merch, my first ever customer review and it is a blasting 5 stars review! I am beyond happy to see it!

Amazon Customer Review of PopSocket

It’s for one of my PopSockets that keep selling on a regular basis. I hope this review will push sales upwards!

Haha, good joke. No Society6 sales for me in April or May 2019! I had ONE lousy sale in March 2019 and I have NO IDEA why. To mourn and celebrate alike, let me please share some new designs and products just for the fun of it – and promotion, free promotion *lol* If you like, please feel free to share a link to one of your Society6 designs or your store in the comments. I’ll visit you, promised 🙂

I totally forgot to blog about stock photo sales on EyeEm. Oh my… not one thought crossed my mind until now. EyeEm is not a big earner for me, but it is small and steady and I am still hoping for it to increase over time.

In March 2019, I had one sale of a rather popular image on Getty Images:

Ich werde wohl von Zeit zu Zeit auch auf Deutsch schreiben, wenn es Themen sind, bei denen es sich einfach ergibt. Das deutsche Facebook schreit nicht gerade nach einem Blogpost auf Englisch, das würde wahrscheinlich niemanden interessieren und übersetzen kann man auch nicht alles.

Ich wollte eben auf Facebook einen Beitrag in einer Gruppe wegen Spam melden (Ein Striptease-Video hat in einer Gruppe für Künstler auf Society6 also nun wirklich nichts verloren!) und da fiel mir ein neuer Punkt ins Auge, mit dem man einen Beitrag melden kann:

Brutto-Content

Brutto-Content auf Facebook melden

Screenshot: Brutto-Content auf Facebook melden

Ich kenne diesen Begriff nicht und tat das, was ich in so einem Fall immer tue. Ich habe Google gefragt. Mit dem Ergebnis, das auch auf Heise jemand im Forum fragt, was das sein soll aber niemand hat eine Antwort darauf!

Kann doch nicht sein… also habe ich die Hilfeseiten von Facebook durchsucht und befragt und das Ergebnis hätte ich nun wirklich nicht erwartet:

Was ist Brutto-Content?

Was ist Brutto-Content?

 

Ich bin noch keinen Millimeter schlauer geworden. Sobald ich etwas herausfinde, gibt es dazu hier mehr. Oder wisst ihr etwas? Ist damit vielleicht Content Dritter gemeint? Vielleicht sogar eine Urheberrechtsverletzung? Wir werden es hoffentlich sehen! Ich habe dazu auch ein Thema im Hilfeforum von Facebook eröffnet.

Being a working mum with two lovely mini-mes has drastically limited my screen time. Four years ago, I had almost endless hours free time to create new items on a vast variety on print on demand websites. But it changed after the first pregnancy. I once considered myself the leading artist for digital artwork around the Santa Monica Pier with a broad selection of unique travel souvenirs. And BAM, I have been overpassed by now.

So I need to get back into the saddle, uppload new designs, promote my Santa Monica Pier gift ideas like crazy and slowly increase my sales.

In case you would like to help me promoting them free on Pinterest, maybe you’d like to check them out in my Santa Monica Pier Travel Souvenir Board?

My Zazzle Surprise Sales

I just took a look at my all time Zazzle sold products and there are a few surprises that, I thought I’d share.

I cannot believe I have sold a total of 46 of these travel mugs as the photo is – let’s be honest! – not a really pretty shot from the Muir Woods.

Swirly Blue Neon Rose Invitation

Two years ago I have sold 325 of these invitations to one person. And that’s it – no more sales with this design on Zazzle or any other pod website.

Believe it or not but I have sold over 1,100 pages of these so far and they are a regular seller…

Sold 11 in total of these although I find it quite ugly and not fitting on a small magnet… was cerated with a huge quick create batch and looks just horrible…

I LOVE selling 150 blank white greeting cards, yes I do!

 

About three years ago I thought it would be wise to open an account and store on Design by Humans to sell my artwork and photos to a broader customer base. And now I must admit it was a mistake. DBH does NOT add watermarks to your works and makes it very easy for copycats to download your images in full resolution!

I am currently reporting copyright infringements like crazy on Sunfrog, where all my DBH pieces can be bought. Without me agreeing to this, without me getting any compensation for it!

So after Sunfrog will have removed my work from their shady website, I will delete everything on Design by Humans to hopefully put an end to this very soon.

I cannot recommend DBH anymore!

Today (April 17) is World Hemophilia Day. It’s supposed to raise awareness of the “not as rare as you might think” hemophilia A genetic decifiency which results in bleeding. It affects males and there is no real cure yet. You can (and should) fight to remain living an active lifestyle, do not let this genetic disorder hinder you in what you can and want to do!

I have created a simple text based design to help raise awareness. I am too late for this year, but maybe someone will buy it for World Hemophilia Day 2020 🙂

This photo “Rainbow over Willemstad Curaçao” is one of the cherished memories from our Caribbean Cruise a few years ago and it was a once in a lifetime moment to see this rainbow over the city in the morning. I was a bit sad to see that EyeEm did not accept it as a market or partner photo, I think it is great to be used not only for tourism topics but also for gay pride. Anyway, if you like it like I do, maybe you’d like to check it out on some print on demand websites or check out my Pinterest board:
