Our Day 30 Challenge is all about giving back. I truly believe that as artists we all need to help and support each other. So today we are going to give back. And I will start first.
First off, I want to thank you all for joining me for this Challenge. We ended up with over 400 artists participating. That's amazing. I have created an ebook of all of the 30 Marketing Ideas from this month. You can download it here for free. It's also located on the right side of my blog - just look for the "30 in 30" photo. Please share it with your art friends as I do think some of these tips can really help artists share their art.
I also created a flipbook of the document which you can view below. Click the "click to read" box to enlarge it. Have fun!
Secondly, if you want to try out one of my webinARTs classes, I am offering all of you a $40 discount on either the 101 or 102 class. Just go to the webinARTs website and sign up for the May101 or May102 class. Use the coupon code 30in30 and you will save $40. This means you can take the class, at your own pace since it is online, for only $139.00. And you will have access to the class blog for one year. All of the classes are already posted on the blog so you take your time. Just be sure to leave comments on the blog if you have any questions!
Finally, I am going to host a 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge in September. I hope you will seriously consider joining me. You can post your new painting everyday on my blog which REALLY helps with visibility. Last January I had over 40,000 hits on my blog during the first 30 in 30 Painting Challenge so not only will you paint more, but you will also get your art seen by a lot of people. I am sure you all have a busy month in September but that doesn't matter. It's ok to paint more than one painting in a day, it's ok to paint ahead and it's ok if you paint less than 30! If you are in for the Challenge spend a little time getting prepared this summer to make sure you have plenty of canvas or canvas boards and lots of painting inspirations. Of course none of us were prepared for the January Challenge and we all survived just fine. Ha!
So? What do you do need to do for our last Marketing Challenge? Give back. Today is the day to share and tell the world about one of your fellow artists. Go to Facebook and SHARE a post from one of your favorite artists. Blog about someone who has inspired you or whose art you absolutely love. Pick up the phone and call you art buddy and tell them how much you appreciate them. Whatever you decide to do will be great. Because it is all about giving back and supporting each other. And that's the best kind of marketing there is!
