I wonder if the slow sales are due to the time of year and will magically pick up again around the holidays.
I hear a lot of people feeling frustrated about this.
I do well on both Easy and Reborns.com
It is a little slower but that gives you time to build up stock for the holiday season.
That being said have you posted your babies to a forum you trust and asked fo honest feedback.
Buyers are picky because they can be, there are so many babies to choose from.
-Is your photography clean, well lit, free of personal items in the background? Are you providing photos of top of head, left and right side, feet, full body?
-Are you styling your baby in a way that will be appealing not just to you but across the board. Sometimes keeping babies styled simply is the best way to go.
-Have you compared your baby to other babies that are the same kit and artists who are at the same skill level as you? How are they selling, what are their prices like, are you competitive or at the same price point?
-Are you being honest with yourself about your skill level? What are the areas you need improving, what can you do to get to a place where you feel really confident? What are your strengths and how can you show those off with photography and description?
-What sets your baby apart from everyone else baby? Do you have a personal style? Is there something about your babies that stand out like great hair painting, superb rooting, do you have a painting technique that gives your babies a unique look?
Research some prototype artists and look at their work, what makes them unique?
Ladonna Briggs: she is know for making beautiful vintage babies, she shops for unique vintage clothing and accessories. She has a background in restoration so she paints in a way that reminds you of old composition dolls. She has a unique hair painting style.
Bean Shanine: She does alternative art babies, she paints with thick bold color, her babies have wild hair and unusual eyes, they are all dressed in fun mismatched outfits, they are fun and wild, and no one else uses the color she uses the way she does.
Cierra Watson: She specializes in AA babies, she styles her babies simply so that the doll is the focus of your attention, her skin tones are flawless and glow, no one does AA skin like she does, she has worked really hard to perfect it. She also roots beautifully.
These are just three examples. You would know their babies by looking at them and you would never say, “she paints like…”
I am not familiar with your work so I don’t know what might need looking at if anything at all.
We should have a thread here where people can get some feedback and feel safe to ask for that. In order to do that the people who offer feedback will have to have the language to do that, be honest, kind, helpful, and not judgmental.
This is an awful long reply, I apologize, I may copy and paste it and create a thread for it.
I just feel the need to help people who are feeling frustrated, we have all been there a time or two.
