Marketing Mondays

The economy is fragile and sales are down but, it's definitely not the time to give up it's time to pull together and help one another!

Many of you will remember that I participated in a career development telesummit, smARTist, at the beginning of the year.

That was the best thing I have ever done for my art business. One of the valuable resources I found was Alyson Stanfield, The Art Biz Coach and author of I'd Rather Be in the Studio! The Artist's No-Excuse Guide to Self-Promotion. Which I am in the midst of reading and seriously believe every artist should own, no kidding.

Here's why:

1.) Easy to read, clear explanations of what the goal is and what you have to do to get there.

2.) Every single chapter covers something practical you can implement
mailing lists
artist statements
media kits
portfolio presentations
defining your niche market
lots & lots more

3.) Covers both on-line and off line promotion

Basically, Alyson has loads of resources to help you become a better-known artist. You can read about her classes, articles, and audio programs here:

My Monday Marketing recommendation for today is Alyson's program:

How to Save Money and Generate Buzz on a Shoestring Budget

These amazing stories come from a chapter in I'd Rather Be in the Studio! The Artist's No-Excuse Guide to Self-Promotion. But they are added to and expanded on. And I walk you through a process to help you come up with ideas for generating your own buzz. 45-minute audio + 12 page illustrated handout.

Whatever you do, when you click the link to her website be sure to sign up for her free weekly newsletter. I love it because it's filled with spot on advice and actions steps you can implement right away. (and it's free LOL)
