3. Reduce the Boring Factor: Add Variety to Your Marketing Message

via Art Biz Blog http://ift.tt/1QRsrgo

No more repetitive emails, please.

Your art exhibition, class, workshop, or event has so many facets that there is no reason to send the same emails and social media posts for your promotions. They get a little stale after awhile.

Years ago, Marcia Yudkin wrote a guest post for me on this topic. It was an article she originally wrote for her readers that got me interested.

I still think about that article and keep that list as a reference. It’s time to revisit its premise for you, my artist readers.

Here are plenty of ways to promote your exhibition, event, or teaching.

Many of these suggestions lend themselves to emails. Others could easily be used on social media. Use your noggin to decide.

20. Figure Drawing Using The Buddy System

A friend and I use the buddy system to get ourselves out to a local life drawing session, and I show my sketches. It’s great to get out to a life drawing session. It is a bit like going to the gym in that I find it helps to keep my hands and eyes in shape. Just […]

21. 8 of the Biggest Mistakes Artists Make in their Art Careers

via Art Biz Blog « Art Biz Blog http://ift.tt/1F8b5GL

You might be making mistakes in your art business that are holding you back from big growth.

Mistakes aren’t bad, and I don’t want you to feel like you have to be perfect in everything you do because seeking perfection is a sure way to be paralyzed by fear. We have to make mistakes in order to learn and to grow.

Mistakes are only detrimental if you keep repeating them without learning and correcting your ways.

Are you making any of these mistakes?

1. Not knowing where you want to go with your career.

I’m not talking about the need to have a specific plan, but I’ve noticed how few artists, especially when they’re just starting out, don’t “get” that running a business is serious stuff. You’re no longer making art for pure pleasure.

Everything changes when you start asking for money in return for your talents. For some artists, it changes for the better and you’re fired up to get your art out there. Other artists can’t stomach the pressure and lose all interest in making art. They can’t seem to get into the studio.
