You work too hard to make the best art you can to have to rely on unreliable third parties to get it to market for you. Before the internet, e-commerce and social media changed things, you had limited options for selling your work. That's not the case now. You can put you in charge and change the course of your career in the process.
When you know what to do and where to look you can find your best prospects, often by name. It takes some effort, but so does any form of marketing. By focusing on finding your top potential buyers and patrons and connecting to them, you cut out the distractions, noise and expense of selling to strangers.
It much easier, more efficient and far less expensive to connect and market your art to people who know you. Collectors who buy multiple pieces and refer you to others will fuel your career success!
Take this course to learn how to find your ideal buyers and make profitable connections with them. You'll also learn the best ways to stay in touch with them. Get started today! You will be glad you did.
Your career is a journey, not a race. It takes time to absorb new information and learn how to use it. You will receive a new lesson every seven days. Trying to go faster than that is detrimental to your learning and application of the the training.
Rather than speeding through, it's more likely you may find seven days is not enough time to complete a lesson and start figuring out how to use the new information. Don't worry if you find this to be the case for you. Many, if not most, participants go at their own pace.
Besides taking in the knowledge and making adjustments to start making change, a little thing called life often gets in the way. The important thing is to stay enthusiastic about learning and stay motivated to keep at finishing the lessons no matter what time frame and pace you are using.
There is so much great and useful information in the Facebook group. It is a wonderful bunch of helpful artists. I learn about new ideas, opportunities and so much more from checking in daily. I also do my best to answer questions for artists in the group. There have been many friendships formed by virtue of belonging to this active, caring group. You can't put a price on community and its value to you as person and an artist.
