Hey gang, this is the new blog. I’m going to focus more on practical things for us people who work in the arts and have to fight some battles.
I’ll be posting about issues regarding the financial end of the arts with marketing and funding, jobs for artists, lawyers for artists, low income housing for artists and more.
Knowing how to market your art on the internet is of paramount importance. The internet has changed over the years to the point that nowadays people can promote and sell their artwork online and get top dollar and full value for their work instead of having to use agents and middle men who don’t always have the artist’s best interest at heart.
I’m going to share what I know and present products and recommendations and lots of freebies that can get people started in making money online.
Being your own boss is the goal you want when it comes to your artwork. Sure you can hire a manager and other staff but you need to have your paintbrush on the pulse of what is going on regarding making money on the web. There are lots of strategies and the best ones are hidden from you. I know the internet marketers who do share their information and who have those inside tips that do generate capital for artists.
I’ll also dig up and post information such as getting the best and low cost health insurance, discount art supplies, discount air fare, and just about every bargain I can find.
There’s lots of adventure to be had here and I’ll also post products that I feel are important and I’ll post the best discounts for these products.
Far too many artists don’t know how to market themselves and often wallow around for years not making any money only because of ignorance, arrogance, or just plain delusion that someone is going to fly in from some magical kingdom and rescue them or kiss their butt. If you’re an artist and you think someone is going to drop everything they have just to cater to you then you’re in for some trouble. If you don’t have a sense for marketing then you need to hire someone or team up with someone. Not a middleman situation but a business relationship where both can grow.
I’ll admit there are some real slimy people who hover around artists pretending to help out. They’re parasites and we don’t need them. A smart artist can detect these people when they’re operating from a sense of sanity and not wishful thinking.
So stay tuned and I’ll figure up some goodies to post here that work.
