Techie Youth

Today at Techie Youth I completed the unit selling digital goods, i listed an item on ebay for the assignment. I began the selling art unit and learned how to sell art digitally and physically. For example It is important that your pricing is the same on every platform; if someone buys an artwork and then sees it for a cheaper price on another website, they can feel cheated which may ruin future sales from future customers. What I also learned is that you should maintain your own inventory spreadsheet so that you have a thorough overview of what artworks are being listed on each site, so that you don’t risk selling the same original artwork twice or overselling inventory.
