Seen, but not bought

I've been a part of the Pixels community since about mid-June.
I've had more than 5,000 views of my work - (though I wonder if the majority of those views are coming from robots - especially from Sunnyvale, California that registers about 50-100 new views daily)
I've tried some initial email marketing and that, for the most part was a failure.
I've entered a variety of contests. Joined three appropriate groups and followed others in those groups.
And to date, I've sold a handful of items - an iPhone case, some pillows and tote bags.
What am I doing wrong?
Granted, there are millions of pieces of art on this website. I have seen some truly fabulous works - in all media and in a wide variety of subject matter.
I guess that's the frustration that so many artists experience. We love to create, we love to push things out to the public and say, "Look at me", but bottom line, art is a tough sell.
Unless you learn how to build a name for yourself and develop an audience of followers, you're just a dime a dozen - if even that.
I'll keep trying.
I just wish more people would start buying.
