Selling Your Art Online using Amazon

Artists often have problems when it comes to marketing their work, but it appears that one artist has realised they could use Amazon as their shop window - gallery. It is a very cheap way of getting a massive amount of exposure, without the repeat fees of trying to do similar on ebay.

Have a look at this example of a sculptor, Julian P. Warren, selling their work on amazon with quite a sizeable, though realistic price tag! metalgnu
this peice has a nice price tag and would cost a few quid every 10day listing it was on sale on ebay. Yet this artist has several works for sale, priced upto £1500, and the only fee they would have paid is a one off monthly fee of £25 +VAT to be able to create as many listings as they can in that month, they then cancel the monthly subscription and await a sale. Ingenious or what?
