10 Steps To Marketing Success For Artists - Articles Surfing
Are you an artist who seeks more from their art than it just being a hobby? Then getting interest in your work for it to produce an income is a must. To do this you need marketing and promotional success, which will enable you to start earning a living from your artistic output.
Today we are going to talk about 10 ways you can find a market for your work and where you can learn more about what is required of you to be successful.
Chances are that it isn*t, so don*t assume anything. Go out there into the World and see what's on offer and, more to the point, what is selling. Galleries are full of pictures that don*t sell so ignore those. Ask the proprietor to show you what sells best and why and to whom?
However, by taking guidance from the trade show you can at least sell to the galleries armed with colours and themes in current context. Most importantly, talk to the publishers about your work and ask them about the process of presenting yourself for consideration.
Talk to several gallery owners and listen to what they have to say. Most will be honest about your work and tell you exactly how likely it is to sell in their establishment. Wall space is valuable so they won*t waste it. You will need a thick skin at times so be prepared for harsh criticism. No matter who you are, some will love your work while others will hate it.
This site is dedicated to bringing artists to the attention of the World by beating the search engine process and parading you in front of everyone searching for what is latest on the market. It's inexpensive and you can control what you display and how you present yourself.
It's probably the most proactive site to arrive in a long time and will do as much to find you a publishing opportunity as it will to sell to the general public. If you are serious about your art, you must make use of this site.
So, don*t settle for one painting, aim for at least three or four in a set, it will do much for your credibility and will considerably assist your success.
The first rule of creativity is to be true unto yourself, unsuppressed by the need to conform to what others expect or may perceive as *art*. If you do not allow yourself this right of expression you will rarely find joy in painting.
But then you must be able to step out of the *real you* and find a way of harnessing your talent in a commercial way that may have more chance to support you until such time as your own passions are recognised as desirable enough in their own right to earn you a living.
