Anyone else dry on Society6?

I seem to have hit an immense dry spot. I've never gone this long without a single sale.


I haven't sold a single item since Feb 28th, and I typically average between 20 and 30 items per pay period.


Anyone else having a similar experience?

Same here. Selling anything there seems exceptional.

i had a really bad month last month - my worst ever i think. this has been a bit better, still only half of what i was getting last year on average, but i never sell a mass anyway

yeah, my sales have nose dived. but, i haven't been posting regularly (while other artists have). i think the site is getting super saturated so it's harder to break through.

I am actually very curious about what kind of sales people are getting, as i have had none... I did just recently add several things and plan on adding more as I go, maybe 1 a month. But it would love to hear what items people are selling? prints? iphone cases? pillows? what?

Cool. Thanks, everyone!

Could be a dip in purchases because it's pre-tax season. I also haven't been submitting much either. But my regulars like Know Your Submarines never seemed to depend on me posting anything.

I only get 5 - 7 sales a month. they all seem to come in within a day or two of each other and more towards the end of the month.

I'm about 25% down on what I did this time last year. What I don't get is that I always add new stuff, but the old stuff never continues to sell. I foolishly thought that the more I had to sell, the more I would sell.

Blah. I've had stuff on Society6 since last October, and I've only made 9 sales since then. Consistently getting sales each month seems like an accomplishment in itself.

Dude, we're talking about Society 6 not your back street shenanigans. 100$ indeed.

I think It's because last month there's only 28 days instead of 31 days. In my experience, iphone cases move a lot. Then a few of my designs that were featured by Urban Outfitters are selling constantly too.

Wharton
Wharton profile pic Alumni

I had a few things picked up by Urban Outfitters, but I don't think I've ever sold anything with them. Plus their royalties are really stingy. I mostly sell prints and Tees, not many iphone cases.

That's true. The hope is that the sale from UO shop will be big enough to push your design further in Society6's "popular print" page.

Can you see your Urban Outfitters sales on your S6 page?

Since I have never sold anything there, I am curious to know what actually sells. Can anyone let know what products they have been selling successfully?

So far I sold there one thing a year ago. It was my first dolar thanks to art so it was a great feeling.

DavidBS

Well, almost 80% of my total sales are iPhone / iPod cases. The rest: Tees / Hoodies / Art Prints and lately, Throw Pillows. Tote Bags and Laptop Skins are sold very rarely, just a few.

I think you just ned to take him out of action for a while, for all of us. Nothing heavy, just a broken finger or some snapped pencils. Just level the playing fields a bit.

I see it from the earning page. When the royalty is smaller, it must have come from UO.

Yeah I've sold like a few small prints and a couple phone cases the whole time I've had a S6 account. Something like a year? I don't feel like looking it up. So yeah it's pretty much always dry for me :) hehe I think maybe I get like $5.00 every 3 months or so?

But I have bought prints and pillows from S6 and love them. I would buy a phone case too but feel that the cases are just priced too high. Also they only do iPhone cases (at least last time I checked which was a while ago)

I find that I don't really sell any of the things that I sub here on S6, its mostly movie posters and more graphic things.

haha , I forgot, I did sell one print and I was totally surprised! Like, someone actually bought this? It's been very quiet ever since, but maybe I should post some newer stuff...

No account?
