Motivation when there are no sales

Motivation when there are no online sales. Melbourne Artist.

I have asked myself this question a few times recently. What keeps me going if I have had no sales? What keeps me motivated?

There are a few things that I think about: The past and the future.

How long since my last sale.. it wasn’t that long ago now was it (May)? It was a great sale too!

What am I doing for the future? I have a few things in the pipelines –

  • I have a little write up coming soon in the next issue of Art | Edit
  • I have entered to attend a large market at the end of year – Markit@ Fed Square
  • I plan to enter a local art show for the end of the year
  • I entered the Australian Etsy Design Awards
  • I am working on my 2016 calendars (One abstract geometric and one watercolour flowers)

If I get any doubts about myself I just look at what I have already done, but more importantly I have found that it’s what I am doing for the future that really counts.

What helps you when you have no sales?
