So far it’s nothing groundbreaking, it’s just podcasts by experienced people talking about stuff that you’ve probably heard before but could probably stand to hear again. Listening to this motivated me to start formulating some kind of artist bio for my etsy shop. I know that’s a very tiny thing, but I feel like I sell better when I have some kind of humanity attached to my work rather than just my username selling a pile of who even knows what the etsy listings say they’re prints and she did them but who even knows. So yeah. A bio and some photos might help that. And plenty of other artists (webcomicers specifically) have always said that giving some indication of a human behind the work helps them to become more buy worthy.
So yeah. Time to do something at all with that. I’m definitely best marketed as being a fellow human who passionately likes to make things and needs to eat in order to continue making things.
Does anyone know acrylic charm, metal charm, and wood engraving companies besides Zap Creatives or Ink It? Both of these companies have made me incredibly miserable with customer service agents who treat me like poo. ;__; I just never want to touch them ever again. But I need this work done. Somehow. By someone.
I’m bracing myself to attempt to place an order with Zap and I’m just dying inside because I don’t want to share words with a certain customer service idiot ever again.
