Business Story

Why this business was started

Majority of small independent artists want to reach more people with their artworks and earn some money while doing their hobby. Also, they most likely don’t know how or just don’t want to waste time by opening their online store, running it and handling everything on it. This is how I thought of an idea to create a website where independent artists can join selling their works and they don’t have to worry about anything else as we handle it. So artists do what they do the best and get the commissions.

The reason of selling this business

I decided to join working for one startup so I will not have much time to work on this store and grow it as I want to.

What's involved in running this business

To keep growing this business business successfully you need to search for new artists who would like to join the website, respond to emails from current artists and from artists who want to start selling on the website. Handle social media accounts (post daily on Instagram, Facebook). Start running advertising campaigns

This business was founded: 6 months ago
Time to run this business: approximately 8 hours per week

    I am an entrepreneur who have built several online stores using Shopify. The store I am currently selling is a platform where the designs of independent artists are print on different types of products and sold to the public, and after the sale artists get their commission for providing that artwork.
