Selling art online is a very charged topic. Many artists try it and give up, many artists don’t try at all, and many artists do very well at it. I believe a big aspect of promoting and marketing yourself as an artist on the internet is the mentality you have going into it.
Some classic mentalities I will cover include the “build it and they will come” mentality. Or the ever popular “buy my stuff” mentality. And one that seems to be special with artists, the “my stuff is too expensive to sell online” mentality, just to name a few. As many an athlete will tell you your success or failure when entering an arena can depend greatly on your mindset when you step on the field. It is no different for the artist looking to promote him or herself on the internet.
This will be a more active webinar where I hope to hear more from you and what is in your head. How do you feel about promoting and selling your work online? Because of that format I am limiting the number of attendees to only 10 artists. This we can have a better discussion and learn from each other.
This is a bit of an experiment but if it proves effective it just means I’ll host more webinars with smaller audiences to try and boost the information sharing.
The webinar went great! Here is the audio, slides, and the video:
