From the Creator of the Art Marketing Toolkit

Here's a brief video with details and insights about the toolkit and how you'll work with the interactive online course.


What’s In It For You?

Sure, everyone wants to make sales on some level because they help financially and validate creativity. But many artists make art with higher purposes. For example, they want to get into a:

  •         School
  •         Gallery
  •         Show
  •         Museum

It's okay to want a successful career based on selling your art. There are no poor choices.

Define what you want and go for it. The skills you learn here will help you reach your goals no matter what they are.

Competent skills lead to confidence, which is a very attractive quality. To speak plainly with truth, confidence is a turn on to buyers and influencers.

How the Program Works

Each week, we’ll have a live interactive session to discuss the assigned chapter for the session. We’ll create a short to-do from what we learned.

We will record and archive the sessions on this site. The to-do lists, checklists, or other docs will be downloadable. You’ll be in a fun, supportive environment and make steady progress every week.

The live sessions will be Friday at 11 AM Mountain Standard Time. The first session will take place on Friday, October 16. We'll roll on weekly from there that date. The live stream sessions will either be done via Zoom or WebinarJam. I will conduct some trial sessions between now and the start date. That way, I can figure out which of those will work best for us.

We'll start with the books you see below and go from there.

Guerrilla Marketing for Artists
Art Marketing

Join in as we revise and rebrand Guerrilla Marketing for Artists. We will use the book's content to explore the more than dozen ways there are to make contact and stay in touch with art buyers. You’ll get tools to help make the best decisions for your art business. The practical advice and know-how you gain will help you for the rest of you career.

The Zen of Selling Art
The Zen of Selling Art

Selling is a learned skill. Knowledge and practice lead you to success. It’s not just learning techniques. Attitude and preparedness create confidence. Sometimes it’s knowing what to say or ask. Buyers need help and when you are there for them, you make sales.

How to Sell Art Prints
How to Sell Art Prints

Adding art prints to your line gets you new price points and buyers. You get paid multiple times from the same original. Success in the print market can be a nice side hustle or a million-dollar business with branding, licensing, and all kinds of profitable opportunities.

Build Skills that Build Confidence

The goal is for you to come away with confidence in your marketing skills and in knowing the different ways you have to get your work to market. You’ll understand how to prioritize your marketing plan and how to put it into action.

I believe the best way to help you is to give you the information and show you via Zoom sessions how to use the tools and knowledge. With your earnest participation, we cannot fail.

Here’s the best part…

Starting in October, the members and I will be going through the Guerrilla Marketing for Artists book chapter-by-chapter. We’ll meet via Zoom so everyone can participate. Then we will discuss the current chapter to discern the most valuable information from it. We’ll close the session by creating a short to-do list for participants to work on before the next weekly meeting.

Instead of reading dry material and putting the book down only to forget half of what we read, you’ll be involved in a weekly interactive discussion on how to use the ideas from the book in your art business. My notes will help me revise the book. When it is complete, all members will get a copy in the ebook format.

You’ll also have access to:

  • Recordings of the live sessions
  • Copies of individual chapters of the current Guerrilla Marketing for Artists book
  • Digital copy of the soon-to-be-published Art Marketing: How to Market Art with Sanity & Integrity book
  • Forms, checklists, outlines, and all relevant documents created during the process
  • Bonus courses
  • Marketing Extras
