Does This Sound Familiar?
One Of The Greatest Challenges Of Having An Art Business
You can find tons of free information on the Internet about being an Entrepreneur, starting your own business, and then Branding and Marketing to stand out from the rest. The problem is, if you are an Artist or Creative person trying to get your fair share of attention and the market, the information you find online is too general --- it isn't right for what you do.
You will learn, if you don't already know, that to be successful in business, you have to fulfill a need. It's supply and demand. Then, you must have the passion and commitment to follow through with solutions and be prepared to change when trends change. This is the typical number one reason for being in business. To serve other's needs and then the money comes.
So, as an Artist, you probably focus on doing your thing, painting what you feel like painting, photographing what you feel like photographing, write songs that you want to sing or play. The trick then becomes, "Okay, so I'm creating and doing my thing, but how do I make money with it?"
This is where most of us Artists get stumped. Competition is extremely high. How do you do what you love and find collectors that want what you love to produce? This is where most artists either just consider their passion a hobby or they sell-out and do commission work (most of which they have no interest in doing). After all, you didn't set out to be a "starving artist" did you? No one does.
Let me help. I'm all about "doing-it-yourself" and retaining creative control. One thing we all know, if you do nothing, you'll get nothing.
So if you're ready to roll up your sleeves, get focused and get to work, I can show you how to put all the pieces together so that it makes sense and help you get what you want. Since you are a creative genius, you may not do things the way I do them, but if I can get your thoughts rolling and give you the support you need, sometimes, that's enough.
