Top tips for selling work on ASP: Make sure the images are good (use a tripod, consider investing in a tripod adaptor if using your phone) and your descriptions are clear. If you don’t get a sale from a post (leave it a couple of days), delete it and post it again – that pushes it up the # page which is always moving. Tell the story around your work on your account, then if people go to see your account they will find out more about you. Posting regularly and consistently once or twice per day gets the most amount of pushes from Instagram, as such do multiple images per post at the same time each day. Do the IN VIEW post and tag all the artists (Generosity is Infectious). If you have a Facebook account make sure it’s linked with Instagram, that way everything you post also goes onto Facebook too, Finally, keep it updated, it’s a dynamic market so needs attention and renewal to make it work.
NB/ we do NOT select work to be seen. You may not see your own work as it is a dynamic page that is always moving and there are so many images, but others are seeing them.

ARTIST SUPPORT PLEDGE is a generous culture and dynamic economy in support of artists and makers.
The concept is a simple one, post images of your work to sell for NO MORE (can be less) than $200 (£200, €200, A$300, C$300, ¥20000) each (not including shipping.) Anyone can then buy the work. Every time you reach $1000 (A$1500, C$1500, ¥100,000) of sales you pledge to buy another artist/s work for $200. (A$300, C$300, ¥20000)
