Creative Marketing for Artists
What do artists need to know before marketing themselves? How to prepare your portfolio for the most impact, present yourself professionally, and get taken seriously. How to understand your target customer and market niche, and how to craft a message that connects emotionally with potential collectors. This talk also addresses why people buy, how to use features and benefits, and marketing methods, both traditional and new.
Sales Strategies for Artists
This talk presents opportunities that artists have to enter different markets, and create income streams. How to leverage your art through different formats and price point ranges; how to add value to your work; ways to structure your offering, and increase every sale. Making your art collectable; driving repeat and referral sales.
