Art Biz Branding standard

Should You Brand Your Art Business? (And What Does That Mean, Exactly)   “Branding” is a word that you hear a lot.. at least I do. But it’s confusing, right? Is branding the same as marketing? Does that just mean, make a logo for your business? There are books on the subject of branding. Literally. Books. So I am not even going to touch the heights and depths of what could be discussed here. Rather let’s just answer the question, “should I brand my business?” and also, perhaps— if so, “why?” In a word, yes. Yes, you should brand your business. “Branding is one of the most important aspects to any business, large or small, retail or B2B.” (source) So if you consider your ...

How to Price Your Art standard

Help! How do I Price My Paintings? Guest article by March 18, 2014 By Melissa Dinwiddie A few months ago I started sharing snapshots of works in progress on social media. Not long afterwards, someone I know on Facebook asked if my work was for sale, because she wanted to buy a particular piece I was working on. It gets better: turns out she was interested not just in purchasing the canvas-in-process; she also wanted me to create a second, “sister canvas” to go with it. Just from posting my process pics on Facebook, I had a buyer for not one, but two paintings! Great! The only problem? Now I was going to have to come up with a price… ...

how much is your art worth standard

How to Make Your Art Worth More Money Guest Article February 23, 2015 By Cory Huff 1 Comment What makes art worth money? I’m going to say some stuff that most artists probably don’t want to hear. It’s not your skill. It’s not some hidden technique. It’s not even having a great website. It’s certainly not your Facebook account.

And what they’re willing to pay is directly related to: – how much money they have – whether or not they know about you – how much interest they have in your work In the book The $12 Million Stuffed Shark ...

How To On A Small Budget Who are You? Curated by: Guest Contributor Angela Cross Brand (verb) – To mark indelibly Think of branding as a stamp, by which people will be able to recognize you. Branding is a process of clarifying who you are as an artist and what your goals are. A strong brand can capture a potential fan or patron’s attention and have them remember you and connect with your work. If this happens often enough, you will have a budding fan base. Though branding yourself as an artist is important, lets face the facts: great branding does not make you a great artist, and being a great artist doesn’t make you into a profitable artist. To ...

How to Do it Right Share on pinterest_shareShare on twitterShare on facebookShare on emailMore Sharing Services8   Guest Writer Art Business.com Art galleries and dealers get boatloads of requests (by email, phone, in person, in the mail, etc.) from artists asking them to get involved with their art in one way or another– either by showing it, selling it, representing it, critiquing it or otherwise assisting them with their careers. One critical mistake these artists often make is that they offer no specific information about themselves or their art beyond providing links to their websites or image pages of the work. Another common error is that they consistently fail to give reasons, specifically relating to whoever they’re contacting, about why ...
