Marketing Tips for Artists

"...Anyone producing works of art needs to aquire only 1000 true fans to make a living". Read this intruiging article by Kevin Kelly:

BC artist Ed Hill offers seminars in self-promotion just for artists. "By exercising and awakening their own creativity, the innovation and the energy that creates their artwork, the artist can in fact be just as creative in the way that they promote their product."

Art Ink's Top 10 Tips

1. Tell your story. How do you describe your work? Be ready with an engaging narrative. Try describing what you do to a friend and have them summarize it for you.

2. Simplify. Focus on the things you care most about and drop the projects you are less interested in.
You only have so much energy and you'll get farther if your engergy is focused in fewer directions.

3. Promote. Have calling/business cards handy and samples of your work in a small portfolio.

4. Create a mailing list. Your fans want to hear from you and know about your latest projects.

5. Learn about and use social media. Websites, blogs, facebook and twitter can help your fans find you.

6. Get art cards printed. An art card is a business card that people pay for.

7. Present a professional image in your packaging. Good design and presentation shows that you are organized and able to professionally represent your works of art. Include the copyright
dates and contact info such your email and website.

8. Document your art work well, while it is still in your possession. Though your original artwork is sold, you retain the copyright. You may want the image later for a variety of uses - books, prints etc. Make sure that your images are of high enough quality for a variety of later uses.

9. Consider NOT framing your artwork. It can be an added expense that in the end doesn't match the purchaser's taste. If you do frame, consider using neutral gallery-style framing.

10. Be creative and fussy! We are!
