Making your own prints is a great way to start generating revenue. It costs only $2 to make a print, and you can sell that print for about $25.
Note: I'm not a fan of sites like FineArtAmerica or RedBubble. They cut way too deep into margins that you could keep for yourself. There's nothing wrong with those sites if they generate the sale, but personally, I never send traffic their way.
I'm a 24 year old artist making a living selling paintings and prints online.
When I graduated art school, I had no idea how I was going to make ends meet. My apartment in Brooklyn, NY was too expensive, galleries were hesitant to show my work, and sites like Etsy, Society6, and RedBubble, weren't getting me the eyeballs I needed to survive.
So I ended up leaving New York, renting out a tiny bedroom + studio, switching completely to a ramen noodles diet, and working day and night on launching my art career. During the day, I painted. In the evenings and at night, I studied everything I could to get an edge over the million+ other artists out there.
It took over a year and a half of hard work before I "made it", but in the end, it was all worth it. Today, I'm earning over $9,000 a month from my art, living in a nice apartment in Manhattan, and continuously growing my art "business".
In that year and a half, I learned a lot of secrets to internet marketing, automation, and how to "growth hack" an art career. Now, I'm at the point where I know that I'll be well-off for the rest of my life, and decided that it was time to give back.
