Want proof? I am sharing an Etsy seller who Julie and I think is profitable. Of course - we don't have accessed to what the expenses are... but if you take a look at what I'm about to share I think you will agree - How can they NOT be profitable?
First - here is just one of the images this Etsy seller offers:
Note - this seller does not sell the "framed" image - just the print inside the frame.
This image is about 8 x 10 and easily shipped first class mail.
Let me break this apart a bit more - The image is printed on antique book pages. This makes every image unique!
The parrot image is probably well known to you... you've seen it on my ad for my own public domain images site:
Let me give you the "Make Money" information now:
This image - as do all the images on this sellers Etsy store - Sell for $10 each.
The seller opened her store on Etsy - Jul 2, 2011
In less than 2 months she/he has made 938 sales.
Do the math 938 x 10 = $9380. Hmmmmm....
And this seller is not the only seller on Etsy selling this type of image. (Say that sentence three times fast... Lordy what a tongue twister)
