Tuesday, March 2, 2010 Is No More

The newsletter we got from BG and its President explained that the website was not making enough money, and that the business model was no longer profitable. Anyway, I saw the newsletter one day to the closing date (we only had 24 hours to get over the shock). It is a very sad news. I can’t really understand how BG could fail (considering the fact that they worked very hard to give their best). It is clear that selling ORIGINAL art online is no longer an easy thing to do.

Now that the ‘high-tech-art-website’ that I was so optimistic about is gone, I have to search for another website to market my work online (I mean a trusted e-commerce).
