Tag Archive: selling more on society6


Better late than never, I did invest a few minutes to set a few goals for my print on demand and stock photo sites – let’s see what I can manage to achieve in 2021:

  • Reach Payment Threshold on Displate ($50)
  • Sell first stock photo via Wirestock (and to write a review about their service!)
  • Sell first piece of furniture on Society6
  • Reach Tier1000 on Amazon Merch (Haha, good joke!)
  • First sale on MiPic, Artpal, FineArtAmerica
  • Win at least two of the three open cases of copyright infringement with my photos via Copytrack (and to write a review about their service!)

 

I just can’t believe that it is already OCTOBER! Time flies by as fast as never before.

In September I have sold 4 products on Society6 which was rather good after a meager August. Society6 – for me – is so two-faced. There are good months followed by zero sales months and vice versa. I keep exchanging hearts / promotions and I do keep uploading new designs as regularly as possible. This also seems to be mandatory for regular sales.

Woohooooo, new month, new luck, new sales 😁👍👍👍

I must admit that the first half of June looked really, really bad – all print on demand websites combined. But then something happened and sales started to pick up again!

I had for sales on Society6, I hope they will get cleared very soon.

My Society6 Sales in April 2020

Society6… I honestly have no idea what to do with this site apart from hating and loving it. After my sales skyrocketed since February, they have once again come to a screaching halt in the middle of April – although I did not change my promotion tactics. I just don’t get it. Did they once again change any algorithms?

Anyway, these are the products I could sell before the latest draught:

I finally have the proof how to skyrocket your sales on Society6 and it’s the theory I have been testing on and off for quite some time. Actually, I tried to do this since I had started with Society6 back in 2014.

Are you ready for this unveiling?

Are you ready to invest a few minutes daily to increase your earnings?

Yes, of course you do need some investment. But you do NOT (I repeat NOT!) invest any money! You do not need to pay for advertising, you do not need how to use Facebook ads, you just need a few minutes of your time. Works best if you try to do this daily!

The key are the promotions 💖 and I can finally present you some proof!

Selling your art on Society6 has always been hard – as it is with every print on demand website, to be honest. You need to get exposure for your art and products, you need your designs to get ranked high in search results. Ugh… you can have the BEST designs, photos and artwork in the world. They are rather useless with no one seeing them.

Let’s take a look at the first screenshot and let me explain what we see:

On this screenshot you can see my sold items from September to December 2019. It is not zero but it is not really good either. One sale in December, November and October each. I did do lots of pinning to Pinterest during that time because hey, Q4 should mean increased sales due to Christmas… well, as you can see social media like Pinterest did not really help me. One sale per month is not worth the hassle.

But can you see September? 4 sales during that month – what happened? What did I do differently? I can tell you: During September 2019, I concentrated on exchanging hearts (promotions) on Society6 with my favourite Facebook group.

You post a link (use your curator link!) to the group and receive promotions and sometimes even comments from the other group members. And then it is VITAL to return the favour! Give and take! You can also comment to other people’s posts after promoting them – with your design link added to get the favour returned. Receive 15 hearts (comments count, too!) to get your work added to the public Society6 search engine and to receive a chance to be added to Houzz where it can find more potential buyers.

During January 2020, I did not do much promotion of any kind and I had zero sales. I was dumbfounded and had to change that. I made February 2020 my “Society6 promotion month”. I exchanged hearts almost daily, I worked my Facebook group a$$ off and guess what? Let’s take a look at the result:

BAM! $33 in total and we still have a few hours to go 😉

So if you are really looking for tips and advice how to use social media to increase your Society6 earnings, this is all you need! Join our Society6 sharing group and exchange hearts with us 💖
