You have to have a few marketing skills under your belt to get people to visit your site.

Do you have your own site and a host to manage it? The whole process is fairly easy and you may have to know some of the basics in putting a website together.

I've struggled quite a bit in getting lost in HTML code, finding my way around the internet, getting content written up to please Google and a few other things. If I was about 25 years younger I would not have a problem - I'd fly along with ease.

genre of art. You sure do need lots of it.

This group is here to help you so ask any question or take a short course on marketing. In 2007 to 2009 I sold over 400 oil and acrylic paintings on eBay - then they changed their algorithms with listing costs going through the roof which left me with only a few dollars in my pocket.

"Ah well" I always say "We all have choices in life." So we make the best we can whether that is easy or tough!
