When I think that something I create I would never buy myself or that it is ugly I figure that it will probably be a winner. If I do like it I figure it won't have too many buyers.
Even now I am putting up art for sell that I created and then hate and think is totally ugly. Because I want to see if there are a lot of buyers who think otherwise. It's just strange looking at my own stuff and pages and thinking - yuk that's so stupid. Just because people always assumes the creator or seller would only put out what they love. It's my most walmarty idea so far. Totally opposite from my usual edgy and dark stuff.
Never thought of it that way. I guess that could work for the only purpose being to get them to click on one particular banner at the top or ad. Not work though for the purpose of pulling and inticing people deep into the site and want to come back if they are buying things from the site. There's a big difference between just getting people to click on something and actually using your site to Sell them and have them click a buy now button on your site based on those sell efforts. I would still never click anything on a site that was too awful because I would be afraid of it crashing my browser or downloading something I didn't want it to. I don't mean just some generic looking site. Those are everywhere and I'm use to them. I mean the sites that have like some rainbow background with some loud annoying looping music that starts when you go to it and flashing bling bling banners and animation all going on at once. That's what I meant that I would leave quickly.
Although of course I'm not like everyone...
