Have you been trying to think of different way to build your art business? Amazon might be what you are looking for. This infographic will help you decide if selling your products on Amazon will be right for your art business.
Selling your Products on Amazon
Founded in 1994, by Jeff Bezos, Amazon was initially an online bookstore and with over 3.5 million sales per day, it has become the largest Internet-based retailer. If you chose to sell with Amazon, your products can get far more exposure than you own web store as it has more than 300 million active customer accounts.
An added advantage for artists is that sketches, drawings, mixed media, paintings, photographs, posters, and other handmade art is quite popular at Amazon and sells like hot cakes. If you do not want to be disturbed and bother about arranging for delivery of products you sell, opt into the Fulfillment by Amazon program that allows you to hand over the product to Amazon and they would handle the delivery. The FBA service is offered at a nominal fixed fee and helps you avoid all the setbacks that are associated with delivery issues.
