Change is inevitable. If you do not embrace change, you will find other artists will go past you as if you were standing still. Change is hard for most of us, but if you can take the steps necessary to adapt to all of the changes your business will prosper.
Increase Online Art Sales With Growing Technology
What can technology do for you?
- Technology has made it possible for you to sell your art worldwide.
- Technology has made it easier for you to accomplish difficult jobs like building websites.
- Technology has made it easier for you to run a successful business without having to hire a lot of people to do jobs that you can’t do.
Here are some ways that you can make technology work for you.
Use The Cloud
I have just started using OneDrive to help me keep all of my documents in a cloud. It helps me save storage on my PC, and I can access it from any computer. The more organized that you can be the more you can get done in a shorter amount of time.
Apps and software such as basecamp.com allow you to keep all of your important tasks in one easy to access place. If you have other people working for you, you can easily share your lists with them, saving you valuable time.
Automate And Free Up Time

The internet has made it easy for you to outsource jobs that will eat up your time. Many jobs can be outsourced so you can concentrate on what is more important, creating art and making money.
Online Bookkeeping software will make your accounting job a breeze. There is a small learning curve, but when you get familiar with the accounting software, you will wish you started using it sooner. I use QuickBooks. It is very easy to use and saves me time by uploading sales that coming from PayPal. I can also print the reports for my accountant.
There will always be new products that will become available for business owners. The best way to get started is by tackling one tool at a time. Pick one tool that will help you save time and earn more money and get familiar with how to use it.
With the time that you save from that tool, start learning a new tool. Before you know it, you will have so much extra time on your hands you might have to take a vacation.
