Welcome to the "30 Marketing Ideas in 30 Days" Challenge. Every day I will post a marketing task for you to complete. Each one shouldn't take more than half an hour and by completing all of them in the next 30 days you will have done a lot to promote your art! Don't forget that there is only one rule for this challenge and that is to HAVE FUN! If you miss a day then don't sweat it. No one will care or even know. Just have fun and complete as many as you can.
We have over 300 artists participating in the Challenge. That means by the time the month of May is over about 10,000 marketing ideas will be the result of this Challenge. I do think we will see a lot of art sold in the next 30 days! Wow.
The Day One Marketing Task is to form an Artist-Mentoring Group. What is an AMG? It's a small group of artists that get together (about once a month) to share ideas, support each other and brainstorm ways to help each other be more successful*. The term "get together" can mean a face-to-face meeting, conference call, Facebook Group or Skype call which means your group of artists don't need to live near each other. So pick up the phone or head to Facebook and reach out to your favorite artist friends and put together your Artist Mentoring Group. You get to decide how big it will be. (Just don't make it too large as it needs to be a functioning group.) Once you have your group together set a date as to when you are going to have your first meeting. It's that simple. That's all you need to do.
* if you need more ideas for your Artist Mentoring Group then listen to the "Artists Helping Artists" radio show that aired in March titled "Team Up to Boost Your Art Career".
