The NFT Market is an exciting space for Creatives to showcase their talent and explore new ways to create income from NFT Sales.
Coming from a marketing background, I have always believed in playing the long game with new emerging markets and NFTs are no different.
It takes a lot of experimentation and patience to figure out the type of NFT Art that will appeal to investors and how to effectively market your NFTs so they get noticed.
Experimenting with NFTs
Like many artists, I’m still trying to figure the magic formula for success when it comes to selling NFTs. Since January 2022, I have been tweaking pricing, testing different NFT collections and art styles, and experimenting with NFT Platforms.
The first NFTs I created in Eaglespirit NFT Collection on Opensea showcase 25 Iconic photographs melded with Urban Art, inviting the Soul to journey deep into the unknown.
Featuring original photography that captures the beauty and vibrancy of nature and modern life in Western Australia to create breathtaking and quirky scenes that delight the Soul.
I learnt a lot with my first collection, mostly on how to create, mint and launch an NFT Collection. If you want to learn the basics, check out my Elisium Gallery Blog.
As a guide, the sale price of the Eaglespirit NFTs on OpenSea range from 0.33 ETH to 0.45 ETH.
Creating NFT Collectibles
My second collection was Vixen3D NFT Collection on OpenSea featuring 40 Limited Edition Collectible NFT Characters and 3D Grafitti Art Caricatures.
I created this collection to see if they would work better with the trending NFT Sales in collectibles and gaming characters. They were a lot of fun to create in high definition 3D.
Vastly different from my first collection. The sale price of the Vixen3D NFTs range from 0.35 ETH to 1.99 ETH on Opensea.
Creating Futuristic NFTs & Impressionist Art
My third NFT Collection is the ‘Elisium NFT Collection’ on OpenSea and is my largest collection of 135 NFTs and growing. Featuring impressionist and futurist digital artwork, allowing me to fully express my creativity.
Created with a combination of AI and Photoshop, I love the openness of digital art to create quirky scenes and explore far out into the future.
I love the concept of ‘limitless’ when it comes to the imagination and the Elisium NFT Collection embodies that. The average sale price of Elisium NFTs range from 0.35 ETH to 1.99 ETH on OpenSea.
Pivoting NFTs into Canvas & Acrylic Prints
After my third collection, I decided to take the best of my NFT Artwork and create limited edition canvas and acrylic prints. Setting up my online Elisium Gallery to create an additional sales funnel from my art.
For my Premium NFTs on OpenSea and Rarible, I offer a Bonus Canvas Print of the NFT Artwork as part of the NFT Sale. So that NFT Investors receive a tangible physical asset, as well as their NFT investment.
Exploring Divine Feminine Art — Belle La Femme Collection
My most recent NFT Collection is the beautiful Belle La Femme Collection on Rarible, which features the divine feminine form. The base layer of each artwork is created from a real-life self-portrait.
I decided to experiment and mint my Belle La Femme NFT Collection on a different NFT Platform. I chose Rarible to see if NFT sales would be higher.
So far, not much difference in NFT sale results. Although there are slight differences in setting up and minting NFTs and Collections on Rarible versus OpenSea. Again, I include a Bonus Canvas Print of the Original Artwork in unlockable content, as part of the NFT Sale.
With both OpenSea and Rarible you can choose ‘Lazy Minting’ option which means the buyer pays the price of minting on the NFT Sale or Transfer, keeping your costs low as an emerging Artist.
The pricing of the Belle La Femme NFTs on Rarible range from 0.75 ETH to 1.25 ETH as a guide.
Expanding NFT Sales into Physical Product Sales
The best of my NFT Artwork from all four collections are available in Canvas and Acrylic prints on my Elisium Gallery website. Made possible with print-on-demand service that keeps overheads low.
I have also expanded that offering into beautiful journals and task planners with my artwork on the cover. There are many ways to turn one piece of art into multiple sales funnels to create income for yourself as an artist.
Finding the Right Art Distribution Channel
There are many ways to distribute your art when using a Print-On-Demand service like Printify or Printful. For example, you can publish your art products directly to your own physical website like WordPress and Shopify, set up an Etsy Store, and publish directly to Amazon.
Although you will need to go through the process of setting up an Amazon Seller Account which can take up to a month for approval and incurs a monthly fee.
It’s worth doing your homework on which sales funnel would be your most profitable based on fees, overheads and ease of integration.
Monetising Your Existing YouTube Channel
If you have a Youtube Channel with a subscriber base of 10,000 under the YouTube Partner Program you can use Spring (formally known as Teespring) to link print-on-demand and digital product sales directly to your YouTube videos.
There are many ways to leverage your social media channels to raise awareness and promote your art sales to a wider community.
For those emerging artists, I hope you found this post helpful and inspires you to get cracking with creating NFT’s and selling your artwork ~ Rose Burnett.
