    Q&A Personalized Art Marketing Advice - Worth Thousands Easily.

    In our private forum, I frequently respond to members' questions. Some of how I assist them are highlighted here.

    - tips to avoid copyright issues
    - how to deal for a favorable negotiation
    - what details to include in your contract
    - how to find the right giclee printer
    - learn practical, unique ways to market and sell art
    - advice on leveraging media coverage to maximize its value

    There are Hundreds of Topics and #hashmarked Discussion Threads in the Archives.

    The above examples are from hundreds of art marketing and business questions I regularly answer for subscribers. All I ask is to present the question to the group. That way, everyone learns, and the asker gets help from fellow artists and me. It's a win-win way to get and give support. 

    To get this kind of assistance,

    1. You must first find someone with the knowledge to advise you.
    2. They must have time and be willing to impart their wisdom to you.
    3. You must be able to afford their consulting fees.
    4. Even when all is a go, it can take days to get on the schedule to ask your question. Typically, I answer subscriber questions within 24 hours or less. Usually, it's right away. 

    Seriously, this level of information and interaction is priceless. And at $5 per month with no contract, it is a no-risk offer. I aim to make art marketing information affordable and available for all artists. Your participation as a subscriber is priceless to me and my mission.

    I find successful artists rely on marketing to grow awareness and demand for their artwork, establish a reputation with trust and authority, and build a brand. They use it to communicate their offerings, promote their art, identify and engage new prospects, and strengthen bonds with their target audience and existing customers.

    Marketing does a lot and it's up to you how much to do. I'll encourage and enable you to know what you want and decide the journey you'll take to go get it.
