If you haven’t already discovered Society6, you’re missing out on a ton of unique products for yourself or your home. You can find cool stuff for yourself, or even for your friends and family and on top of it, you’ll be helping out individual artists who want to make a profit off their work.
If you’re already an active user of the site, there are even ways that you can make money. All you have to do is share links to products that you’d recommend to others. See a cool print or a witty coffee mug? Share it. When someone sees your link and purchases the product, you’ll make a little money.
As an artist myself, I think that it is important for artist communities to work together in order for them to gain a profit from their work. Whether it is using websites like this one, or through websites like Patreon community based support is important. Even locally. Visiting local mom and pop kind of stores in your area. From my experience I’ve always been able to find the neatest stuff in those kinds of places (and the best food).
The support and sense of community that I’ve seen forming between creators and their fans has given me a lot of hope and excitement for the artistic community. People are beginning to see the importance of actually paying indie musicians, and artists for their work because they value the amount of effort that goes into it.
Anyway, I’d better eat my very late breakfast here…I guess it’s considered lunch now.
Till next time,
