How to sell art on line( Society6 / Esty)

Esty so far has been the best option for me when it came to selling art online. Society6 is also a good website to sell but with Etsy, I feel as though it is easier to manage. However, before selling on both I think it's best to really have a plan on what you want to sell and how to sell it before you actually go through an execution. It has been difficult trying to find an original idea for a product I think consumers would like. So at first, I wanted to sell crop tops now I'm considering selling actual cups and making an abstract design on them. This now requires me to determine how I want to market my cups( Mugs ) through my original design for my Harajuku crop tops inspiration.

Having a leader's mentality means that you are a person who can lead others and basically influence others around you.
