Lord: it is time. The huge summer has gone by.
Now overlap the sundials with your shadows,
and on the meadows let the wind go free.

Command the fruits to swell on tree and vine;
grant them a few more warm transparent days,
urge them on to fulfillment then, and press
the final sweetness into the heavy wine.

-Rainer Maria Rilke

Now for a little...

In January I participated in the smArtist Telesummit, and one of the speakers was Alyson B. Stanfield, The ArtBiz Coach, and I love her! I have her book I'd Rather Be In The Studio! which I can highly recommend and would never be without.

Today I received an e-mail from Alyson announcing her new class Culitvate Collectors:Get the Most from Your Contact List (& Reward Your Fans)

For the 18 days of this class, you will focus on your contact list. You will:

Expand your mailing list
Carve out time to update your list
Maintain data for your contacts
Decide how you will use your contact list
Make your fans feel special
Follow up with tips and leads
Prioritize a People I Want to Meet list

Here’s how it works:

You log on to your computer from the comfort of your home, office, or local coffee shop--any time of day that suits you. There are no scheduled meeting times and everything will be posted on the class blog. We would love your participation on the blog, but we'll understand if you want to come and go in anonymity. You will receive daily (weekday) reminders for the class. Class lessons include PDF downloads and audio files (which are for auditory learners--all audio files will also be available as PDF files).You just need a computer and space to devote to your dreams.

The cost for the class is just $97!! I just signed up today and can't wait to get started!

Interested? Check out the the information page for the Cultivate Collectors Class

Because I really love Alyson's book, and her advice on art marketing I am part of her affiliate program. So, if you click on the links and either buy the book or sign up for the class I earn a little money for my art supplies piggy bank!
I hope you'll be joining me in the class then we can compare notes and share ideas!
