Marketing Every Week
If you are making a living from your art you need to spend at least some time each week thinking about how to market. Get a note pad and start brainstorming each Monday and come up with a weekly plan. Write down everything you can think of that is relevant to selling your paintings and pick at least one idea each week to pursue. It may be making a new contact, working on your mailing list, dropping off fliers, putting out bookmarks or biz cards, writing to a potential client with a personal note. Whatever seems likely to build your network is a good idea.
We all stay so busy each week that it is easy to slack off and let the marketing side of our business go. That is a big mistake. Even if you are selling well, you must continue to look for new opportunities.
Brainstorming is free so it can only do you good. Finding new ways to keep your art in front of people can only be good. Get out of your usual routine and think of some ways to get your work and name out there.
