Can I Sell My Talent at Listingdock?

I have a deep passion in drawing cartoons. Once, I did drew cartoons for a blogger for his own site and paid me through paypal. I was thinking of selling my art drawing at Listingdock too. Can I sell my drawing here?
What should I write to promote my drawing? How much should I sell?

Thanks for your advice

On the way how you deliver your statement, it means to me that if LIstingdock pays you money in your drawing. As far a i know in listing dock service, you can post here it, but not paid by the site. Listing dock serves as a middleman to selling of your products. They just help you to patronize your work. They are just helping you to give you a place where in you can sell your drawing, and in your corresponding question on what to be written and how much you will sell it, You must be informative and give vivid description about your product and do not tell any false info cause this may affect your future selling. Post the prize that best suites and deserves you effort of creating those.

So, if listingdock doesn't pay me for my drawing, if my client buys them, then where or how can I earn money here? I understand from your point of view that Listing dock is a middleman site. Then, does it mean that Listing dock also earn some profit too?

Think of ListingDock like you would eBay. They are a marketplace for people to find stuff to buy and for people to sell stuff for others to buy. ListingDock will obviously take a small fee from each sale that you make otherwise they wouldn't make much money to run the site. But it will not be much.

Yeah I think that's how it goes. They take little commission just like on the other site. Just like on freelancer sites too, they include the fee or the payment to your minimum rate of pay. Maybe it will show up upon filling the information for the price of what you are selling.

yes, I believe the sit also earn some profit from my earning, it is fair and square. I just want to know whether I should use social medias to promote this site?

I don't really know if it would be a great idea to promote it through social media. Promoting your services provided on a third party site could seem unprofessional and make it less likely for people to want to buy your service. If I were in your situation, I would keep your services up on Ionicware's sites for the community here to find, but advertise yourself individually on the side. I mean, if you're advertising a service that people might be interested in outside of ListingDock, there is no reason to use a middleman. You can just work directly with a client then as opposed to having to give the site commission. Sites like ListingDock are for reaching out to a community that isn't within your networking circle.

Well I dont see that listing dock has nothing to do with your earning but,through here, you can learn lot of things I mean these forums sometimes has an answer to your questions so by then listing dock gives you an opinion on how you will showcase your talent.

ListingDock--or any of Ionicware's other sites--technically aren't the ones paying you. Their services are a type of marketplace. You post the service you are providing, a user buys it, and Ionicware deals with the matters of transferring the money. I haven't posted any sort of services so I don't have much experience with it, but Ionicware probably takes a small portion of the profits as a form of commission, as most sites do. It isn't like posting an ad online and dealing directly with a customer, or directly selling to a company.

I think that you can sell your drawings easily. Just look at how many people sell various services, that means you can do it as well! Besides the ListingDock, you can also try over at the PixelClerk that is part of the Ionicware network. PixelClerk is more focused on the graphics and perhaps you'd find more buyers there.

Regarding the price - the best thing is to always check the competition. Check how much others are selling their drawings for and then decide. You don't want to set it too high until you gain good reviews and reputation. How you describe it, it is completely up to you. Just put yourself in the buyer's shoes and make it attractive Can I Sell My Talent at Listingdock?

One thing that annoys me a lot about the sale of drawings is how much most people devalue this type of work thinking that they always have to pay a small amount for them. I have some friends who live through that kind of work and they complain that most clients think that drawing has to be something seen as just a hobby and not as a real job.

This is so frustrating.

It is really frustrating. Simply because they do not know how much effort and hours of work we spend to get a piece done. Only those who can relate will understand what an artist have been going through just to finish his/her work, it is not that easy.

anor0428,

I kind of agree with you because I don't think you need to be related in any way to art in order to value it. You just have to use common sense to respect the work of others (because some values offered by the work of these artists becomes ridiculous at times).



Enter a reason for deleting this comment

peachpurple

yes I agree with you, some clients just don't understand that the art we draw is our work, not just a casual scribbling of stickmen



Enter a reason for deleting this comment

wiseagent

peachpurple,

What irritates me even more is when people are aware of the importance of this type of work and yet still prefer to defend the idea that values really should be lower so that more people could buy them.

I mean... What is the point of that? What do these people have in their minds?

Thanks, so I should create a new account at Pixel clerk since it is a graphic and art site. Then, how am I being paid? Do I wait until my earnings at Pixel clerk reach the minimum amount? Maybe I should tag a price of $1-2 for initial business? What do you think?



Enter a reason for deleting this comment

DarthHazard

Accounts are all connected as they are owned by the same people and run by the same staff. So if you have an account on either SEOClerks, ListingDock (which you do obviously lol) or PixelClerk, you can log in to the other two sites using those details. So you don't have to create a new account which is great. I don't think there is actually a minimum amount to wait for to take your money out. Always charge what you think is fair for your products/services. $1 seems a bit low for drawings and artwork



Enter a reason for deleting this comment

peachpurple

thanks very much. So I just create one account and all the services that I post at listingdock, seoclerk,wordclerk will link to one account, right? $1 is too low? How much would you recommend? Oh yes, I remember that Level 1 price is $5, not $1

PixelClerk would probably be a better place to sell your artwork and drawings because they are focused on graphics. You are much more likely to find someone that is willing to pay for your work over there than here at ListingDock. I mean, you can try of course but it's just better on PixelClerks. You should also try GraphicRiver, you can sell graphics and artwork over there although they do have some high fees.

Thanks for your suggestion. I will try on both sites that you had mentioned. Then what can I sell at Listingdock? Have you tried selling at Listingdock?

There are plenty of places to sell your artwork and plenty of ways as well. You can try opening up a social media account and making it popular. Then advertising your talents that way. Perhaps your own personal website too? If you get your own site, you can run ads on your site and make money that way. That income will be driven by how popular your site becomes. The more traffic your site draws, the more ad revenue and the more art sales too. But any serious artist needs his or her own website.

I think this is the best way that can work. Not really sure you can sell your work here, but use the advice and tips here, to sell them somewhere else. This idea looks exactly like what you need. Use social networks, make a blog, open a site. Never take the power of social media for granted, my sis has grown up in her business through all of them.

Thanks, you have given me lots of ideas to start my own drawing business online. I have my own blog, not website. I can run amazon ads there. Should I just post my drawing at my blog , write up a short description or should I create a tutorial how to draw the cartoons? Which would you prefer?



Enter a reason for deleting this comment

DarthHazard

I think a lot of people would actually enjoy the tutorials and the drawings on your blog. By mixing it up you can attract a lot of different readers and you can really do well. A lot of people love drawing tutorials and it can do really well. By having advertisements on your site you can make a decent income from it as well. Depending on how large your blog gets, you can probably earn a lot of money.

anor0428

Yes. I agree. Social media is a good place now for selling talent. I've seen some people who for a special group ang pages about artworks. They show their piece to the page along with the other artist and then those costumers will comment and request for a project or request to buy their masterpiece.

peachpurple

thanks, I should turn my own blog into a art gallery site and then share at social medias. Add in amazon or ebay for earning extra bucks. I wonder how do the customer pay for the master piece?

Not only in ListingDock but your artwork can be sold in so many other places (doing a quick search and you'll surely find very interesting options) that your biggest difficulty will be "only" choosing the best places to do that. This field of sales is growing very easily because it is something simple and easy to be sold.

The only thing you should never do is sell your work for a very cheap value because the competition (which will certainly be more established than you at this point) will want - literally - to swallow you.

Good luck. Can I Sell My Talent at Listingdock?

You can sell you talent anywhere, if truly you know how to draw cartoons, then you have a very good talent, you can sell it on listing dock and many other freelance sites. And you can really improve by developing your self then you can start shifting to comic drawings and animations, work on yourself champ.



Enter a reason for deleting this comment

DarthHazard

Like you said, you can sell your drawings almost everywhere. I think that is extremely important because you need to try and maximise your revenue as much as possible so advertising your services and products in a lot of different places can ensure you get a lot of sales. Never just focus on site unless you have some sort of an exclusive deal with that marketplace (which is probably something you can think of once you start making a lot of money)



Enter a reason for deleting this comment

Authord

Yeah, you are right, though the cost of advertising might be a pain in the ass, for someone who is not capable or financially buoyant, to bench the cost of advertising. And I don't think a newbie can be capable to pull that off. But the importance of advertising can not be overemphasized.

thanks, which sites would you recommend? I tried Fiverr, Society6, no luck yet

I think Zazzle, Etsy and Fiverr can be the right place. Listing dock looks more or less marketplace. I am not sure if it's for the drawing and other art type of the jobs. Most of the gigs on such places makes it easy for you to sell the talent. But then again you can see that listingdock may take time for you to make money.

Here's what you should do. Find out the sites where you can sell the arts. And then have profile on each one of them. And then start to get some gigs on your art. That's the way it sounds more secure and reliable. Don't put trust in single site have your eggs spread all over.

I agree. Spreading work on different site can give higher chances for you work to get noticed. The more promotion of talent/work, the better the result/sale would be. It is also an advantage that she has done drawing on for a blogger that she can put on her description.



Enter a reason for deleting this comment

Yes she can take the drawing on zazzle and sell it. I have seen people selling their drawing to other sites. And that always works out. You can see that listingdoc may not have the customers on that though. That's what I think, she may have different experience.



Enter a reason for deleting this comment

anor0428

I have read about that site before, is this the one where you can costumize the design for their products? (correct me if I am wrong). That is actually a good place to sell designs to. Oh well, she can actually start a business like that personally in the future. Those personalized items are actually popular as souvenirs and gifts.



Enter a reason for deleting this comment

Yes zazzle has two options. You can promote designs of other people in option of affiliatae marketing. And in second you design the product and add it on mug, t shirt, stationary etc. So it can be a good business. But it takes years to properly manage to earn from it. I have seen some people making decent money from it. But it's not easy.



Enter a reason for deleting this comment

anor0428

Yeah I have seen it one time in a forum looks like a very nice site. I think what makes it hard to earn is that there are huge numbers of designer to the site. One more reason is that, the site is not as popular as any other site like amazon or ebay.



Enter a reason for deleting this comment

overcast

Yes. So many designers and lot of quality design. Most of the newcomers may not be able to find their first sales easily. So in such case you have to make use of the affiliate marketing option. You have to promote your competitors too. And that may earn. Small but good earning if you ask me. So not bad option.

Listing Dock is a platform where you can sell your services and products. You make money from Listing Dock when someone buys your services or products. Since you say you have cartoon drawing skills, you can sell your cartoon drawing skills as well as cartoons through Listing Dock. All you have to do is list your servicer and promote your service onsite (through bump feature) or offsite (on social media and else where).

I think you list it both here and at pixelclerks.I don't think the site pay for any services,it will be paid by the clients that purchased both services and products.

I think the best bet is to produced a good quality service and offer it at a very good price.

Don't forget to advertise it for more sales.

You should look into selling your artwork on Fiverr also. They're a good place for freelancers in just about any category or occupation.

Listingdock is like a online market so you can sell your great drawings here so that many buyers will see your product and buy it that is the easiest method in selling on listingdock and also about the payment don't worry they will just give you the method of payment whether it is through bank or paypal.

I think that selling at Pixelclerks as others have suggested is a good idea. The good thing is that you don't need to create a new account over there. You can sign in over there using the same username and password as listing dock. Since you stated that you once drew some cartoons for a blogger maybe you can offer such services over there. People are offering all kinds of services related to graphics over there. Try you luck.

Probably you can, just post all your works here and people will check and who knows they might buy on a better and big price. And yes as what mostly people say, the site can't pay you but the people will and might. And also, I do love painting and creating art too especially on Photoshop but selling it to someone is not getting on my mind yet, I don't know I just don't feel like it's not that worth it but who knows.

anor0428

I think so, because there is a section to ad you skill and there is a section for selling, I checked it and there you will see a guide how to start. But aside from listingdock, I also heard that some do sell their artworks on amazon before. You can also sell it to social media, search for a group of cartoonist, some people hire or request for a project there. If you know how to do caricature, that is one of the best seller too.

I think selling on social media takes time. And if you can sell the talent on the social media it'd be lot easier. Because here the payments are going to be direct. And things would be a bit better option in that context. I think listing dock is a good place to sell. But the OP is into the art work. And I doubt if this traffic may help get that goal achieved.

I believed it would also take time to do it. But in any case, or any chance, it will always possible to be done, as long as you have confidence to yourself. I didn't even notice the selling option here in this website, I hope it will help to the one who really in need. The only thing that, the options available to those who looking on it is to make sure clients have easy access of it.

It is amazing people selling this kind of things in amazon. I didn't try to do it by myself, so I am willing to try one thing, and that is looking for the right employer to use my fine skills such as painting. There's a lot of talent skills in the past that, the drawing and designing cartoons is just like a basic thing to do, but I do believed it should have to put it on higher price to sold, because it is the one attracting clients in a website.

Hi peach. Glad you're being entrepreneurial and I admire you for your talent. Cartoons Wow! Your question is interesting. However don't you think you're asking the wrong people?You should be asking Listing dock.

I hope you have a portfolio of drawings. If you don't that's the first thing you should consider creating. Any potential customers will want to see how talented and versatile you can be.

I also think you should register with freelance sites like Fiver, Up work and Guru. You're bound to find someone there who is interested in your services.Best of luck.

Yes, it's always possible, as long as you would help other people's problem to solve by your help. The talent of design such as what you did is amazing. You could sell your talent, if you are willing to improve your own talent, and only yourself could do it. It is a matter of chance that you could discover the probability of your success through your talent, if only you are willing to share it with others, as a startup showcase of talent of yours.

I have the same thing expectation about my talent, but I would assume no one would care of it unless I will showcase it to the forums. You can try it here, maybe there's a chance you might succeed on it, as long as you will persevere to do it nothing is impossible. So, try other form of strategies to make sure your chances will be high rate.

The clerk sites are very good when it comes to promoting products and services which one offers. It helps such services reach out to a good number of people out there in the world but when it comes to getting a better experience with what you desire to do, looking at seeing artworks, going through pixelclerks would be more effective.

I'm actually not entirely sure if ListingDock would be the place to sell this sort of service. I'm fairly new here so I'm not exactly positive, but it doesn't seem like ListingDock in particular is the place for art related stuff. On the other hand, Ionicware does have another website called PixelClerks. It is similar in format to ListingDock, but as the name suggested, PixelClerks is more about digital art stuff. From graphic design, to Photoshop, to illustration, I'm sure that any sort of art related service is more likely to go over far better over there than here. You should also check out other sites like Fiverr.

Actually no, you will not get paid for your drawings, but you may get paid for what you write. If you are good at drawing do something about this and look for an open market for you, you can also use the park where you can go and draw people for money, I do have a friend who earns more than 1000 dollars a month from drawing people on the street.

But looking at the specifics of the services the posters wants to offer which is some kind of artsy nature, I think that making use of Pixelclerks would be a great idea. It's not that he wouldn't achieve his goals using Listingdock, but Pixelclerks would be more direct for his task. What do you think?

Based on what I saw here at listingdock, they just help you to sell your products but they are not the one who will pay you. Maybe it's like listingdock is your affiliate marketer. They just help you to earn your efforts. When it comes to the price of the product you will sell, just think of the fair price were your efforts will be paid for.

Depending on the nature of the skills that you have and willing to sell on any of the clerks site, I believe that where you could have a major breakthrough is going to put it up in pixelclerks. It's a site that is more related to arts, drawing designs etc. I'm sure you will make great sales on the site, as long as you have good quality services to offer.

Good luck.

As the mum of a cartoonist whose cartoons are now all over the world, let me suggest that while you might sell cartoons here, the way to make money fast is if you are also a fast worker and can sell your art in local pubs, or for weddings. My son is able to make a fair bit of money doing this. However, fame does not come overnight. You have to do it consistently and have the kind of personality that can sell yourself. Pubs and restaurants sometimes like a resident artist and may even give you the venue free. The same can be said of festivals. You have to be really good, able to caricature a likeness on the spot and to work very quickly. It also helps if you have a genuine story about why you began to draw cartoons.

List your service in the listing dock marketplace. Quote your price. Nobody can value you unless it is yourself. Quote moderate price. If a person buys then you can receive money either through PayPal or credit card.
