You’ve created beautiful work, uploaded into an online shop, you’re posting on all social media and the only sound you hear is ‘the sound of silence’?
You’re so ready to sell your beautiful photography or art and hear the magic ‘cha-ching’ after trying to figure it out on your own but you don’t have the ‘recipe’ on how to make it work.
You know your work is great and you want to be able to create the work you love, and share it with the world and be financially rewarded for it.
You’re ready to step into a bigger creative vision of yourself and your art and create a joyous successful online shop?
THERE HAS NEVER BEEN A BETTER TIME TO CREATE AND LAUNCH YOUR OWN ONLINE SHOP
You’ve tried everything. You got off to a good start creating your work and uploading it to your shop. You may have even made a sale but you can’t make it happen again. You waste time, money and energy trying to make it happen!
You’ve scoured the internet for answers, read articles about how to sell your work online, what’s the right price, paper, platform or subject but you feel more confused than ever, trying to piece together the magic formula on your own.
You wish you had a resource where you can get all the answers you need to move forward.
You wish you had a step-by-step guide to take you through each section of the process from building your shop to selling your work.
"When I began the Walls of Love program, I was skeptical that people actually bought photography. I had had a online shop for 3 years and sold 3 prints. Despite this belief, I thought I would give the course a try because I have greatly benefited from other course run by Carla. The program was nothing less than I expected. Carla covers every aspect of selling online and developing strategies for the future. With a change of mindset, and putting into action a number of techniques I learned on the Walls of Love program, I have now sold approximately 40 prints in the last 6 months since enrolling in the program."

You’re ready to commit fully to a creative life and an online business you love but you’ve got so many questions!
“What are the magic formulas to communicate, promote, articulate and sell my work?"
“How do I navigate the e-commerce world at the same time remaining faithful to my creative vision?"
“Who is my ideal client and where do they hang out?”
“It looks simple from the outside but I feel I don’t have the roadmap to get where I want and can’t get results."
I know, there can be a lot of questions and confusion if you’re starting out.
If you don’t have a plan to follow, it can be easy to make some critical mistakes, get off track, and never end up selling your work and making it a thriving business.
Without guidance and support, it can be difficult to make any progress at all!
That’s why I created Walls of Love, a 12-month self-study program.
Hanging your beautifully framed work on someone’s wall is akin to love, converting it into a sustainable business is one of the most beautiful things on the planet!!!
In this 12-month intensive self-study program, you will be guided through the essential steps to create the work you are proud of and to ensure your online shop thrives.
Taking photos or making art you love but have no deeper connection or understanding as to why you are doing it and how to articulate it
You are confused as where to start with your photography or shop and uploading all the images you like into one big category or categorising them by subjects such as beach
Trying to figure out what works by looking at everyone else and seeing what they are doing but not having a strategy that you are following
You don’t know how to grow your community, connect with the people you want to sell to or which platforms are where you ideal client hangs out
If you get a sale it feels random and a fluke as you don’t know why it worked.
You know you could make it work if you had the tools but you often spends hours scrolling social media with no real monetary results
You are disempowered around asking the right price for your work and feel shy to promote your work on social media or have a promotion
You thought when you launched your shop the sales would roll in and now you are confused as what to do next
Frustrated and tired creating work you think you should do and you have no idea why this doesn’t work
Your creative life after Walls of Love:
You are connected to your work, understand your philosophy and why you do what you do and can express that in a way that others will attract your ideal client
You know the link or story between your images which makes it easy to promote and sell your work
You wake up everyday prioritising your creativity, business and goals and you're supported by systems and structures.
You have a blueprint and know where to grow your community and where your sales will come from in the next 12 months.
You understand the essential items of e-commerce and you know how to launch a new series, create successful promos and sell your work without feeling sleazy and confident you will receive sales.
You have a social media strategy and plan and you spend a minimum amount of time on social media which is effective
You have a new mindset and wealth consciousness that allows you to raise your prices, take action of a successful person and create big goals that you can achieve.
You have a calendar of events that matches your revenue goals and are taking consistent action to make them happen and have the results you desire.
You are creating the work you love and receiving sales in return for the work you have done.

There has never been a better time to create the work you love and sell it in your online shop as we are in a unique time and place in history.
WHY START TODAY INSTEAD OF WAITING ANOTHER 6 MONTHS TO A YEAR BEFORE YOU JOIN?
Starting now will allow you to:
Be a groundbreaker in the business of selling your artwork online. Covid gave us a gift of moving businesses online that people once thought were impossible but many photographers and artists are yet to make this move.
If you start now, you will be in the first wave of successful shop owners and so happy you started now, not in 12 months.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GET MY SHOP LIVE AND RECEIVE SALES?
The honest answer is it depends on you and your current situation and whether you already have a body of work, community, have a shop or you need to build one from scratch. Most of our students are able to see their first sales in 3-4 months depending on the time you have to put into it.
Others might take a few extra months to complete the modules and start applying the system to your shop and work. There is no rush and no right or wrong amount of time, because you have 12 months' access to the program and community! Remember, this isn't a "quick fix" by any means, this is about building a sustainable online business you love.
We recommend you set aside 2-4 hours per week to go through the program and implement the assignments.
When you join the program, you receive instant access to all the modules in our program platform.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
When does the course begin?
You will receive instant access to our platform once you confirm your payment. As this is a self-study course it begins when you start work on the modules.
What do you mean by experienced photographer or artist?
I specified experienced photographers as you will need to be able to understand exporting files, enlarging, and handling your images. I do have tutorials for basics such as enlarging your images and exporting from Photoshop or Lightroom but the level of expertise I am speaking to are people who are either willing to learn or are already working with images regularly and doing these procedures.
Is it necessary to start with a body of work?
It isn’t necessary to start with a body of work but I would recommend a very strong desire to make creating a shop or getting your work out there a part of your life moving forward. I have guidance on how to create a body of work that you love or if you already have a body of work, how to articulate it or tighten it up.
I do have two mindset modules on Success and Money so there is support and inspiration to see what has been holding you back and I also have a recommended reading list to continue to inspire you.
Are there any dates or time commitments that I need to be aware of?
No, this is a self-study course designed for you to work at your own pace. It is designed to be completed within 12 months simply so that you can create a working rhythm and deadline and bring your shop and work to life.
How much time do you recommend to put in per week?
Everyone is different as are your lives and schedules. I recommend carving out a time slot each week that is yours to do the material and you keep that appointment with yourself to help you move forward. It could be, for example, two hours a week to work on the material and then you schedule other times in your calendar to take the required action.
Will it work for me?
The outcome really depends on you. How ‘all in’ you are! How willing you are to show up and create work and go through the process of putting it out there and staying with it over a certain period of time. If creating an online shop and presence isn’t something you want to be doing in three years, or having your work out in public is not a burning desire, I would suggest you reconsider purchasing the program as like creating a book or a long term project, it needs time, focus, and love. It’s not a get-rich-quick program. The Walls of Love Self-Study Course is about creating the work you love and a sustainable business.
How much access do I have with Carla and her team?
This is a self-study course so there are NO live calls, question or answer sessions, or email feedback. I have designed the course so that you will be able to get the answers you need on your own.
Is it worth it?
I understand the price is a serious investment but I am sharing 20 years of experience within the course. I give you a clear roadmap of what to do and not to do, complete resources, templates, and private information that many wouldn’t share. The course covers a wide variety of different areas in detail to help you make selling your work a success. The course is packed with interviews and recordings with previous participants so you get real-life examples of how others have taken the material and made it a success in their own unique way.
What is the refund policy?
Sorry, folks, there is no refund policy as you will receive instant access to all the copyrighted material that is instantly downloadable. Please think carefully about whether this is a burning desire and something you really want to bring to life before you purchase.
Terms and conditions
As this course shares private information of former participants and their businesses, you will be asked to agree to the terms and conditions upon purchase to respect the privacy of the previous participants and that no material, interviews, or any media is to be shared.
"The Walls of Love course has worked magic for me on so many levels! Especially making a clear business plan with a practical step-by-step process for building all aspects needed in a creative business. At the same time, I have learnt liberating shifts around unhealthy money beliefs that have been game-changing. But connecting with 'WOL' group and Carla has been the best part and so much fun. For any solo creatives, I found this course incredibly supportive and confidence-building from the ground up. I've honestly had the biggest year in sales for my business ever and am really starting to live my best life."

COMMENTS FROM OUR PREVIOUS PARTICIPANTS
Carla Coulson is a photographer and creative mentor and walks her talk.
Carla has a successful online print shop and in 2021 sold more than multiple 6 figures of her limited edition prints.
She has published 8 books with Penguin Australia, and had her work published in Harper’s Bazaar, Marie Claire, Gourmet Traveller, and Collezioni.
"The program is fascinating, inspiring, hard work (yes, you will work hard) but it is so gratifying as each new hurdle is jumped, as another sale comes in and with it the pleasure of knowing one of your images or paintings is hanging on someone else's wall. There is an extraordinary amount of detail within each module - but I feel now I'm equipped to continue, to develop and grow my online shop. I loved working on the various collections and creating the shop. The marketing side has been the most difficult for me, as it is something I wasn't familiar, out of my comfort zone for sure, but Carla taught us how to look at marketing in a different and personal way that works.
"Future participants who would love to have an eCommerce shop to sell their art but are scared should just do it. Do it! I promise you, you won't regret it. You will learn the whole process from knowing who you are as artist, refining what you are offering, building your shop and continuing right through to finding your ideal client and the marketing involved. A whole new world has opened up for me and I thank Carla from the depths of my soul."
