Yesterday's blog post was all about selling your art. I asked all of you to identify the biggest marketing challenge you face as an artist. The response was amazing as there were 101 comments! Many of you want help marketing on social media, getting in to galleries, pricing, building a better website, duilding a mailing list and just balancing marketing and painting at the same time.
I have tried really hard these past few years to answer many of your marketing questions through the Artists Helping Artists show. But I realized earlier this year there was a need for more detailed information.
I posted this question on yesterday's giveaway post because I wanted to get an even better understanding of what artists need to help make them more successful. That's why I have committed to finishing my marketing book in 2015. I am very excited to create a step-by-step marketing guide to help artists answer all of their marketing needs. All of your comments from today will have a big impact on the content of the book! So thank you for sharing and I am going to do everything I can to help all of you!
Now ... The winner of the Day Six Giveaway is Carol Pighin. Carol has won an entire year of my online palette knife painting classes. Please email me Carol and I will get you all signed up for the classes. Congrats!
Today's giveaway is a set of 20 of my notecards (valued at $60). To be eligible for the giveaway, all you have to do is tell us about your favorite App! I love sharing information with students in my workshops and apps are a great resource. My two favorite apps are Pinterest and Waze. Pinterest was a very helpful tool for our beach house remodel this past year. And Waze is the best app for navigation and traffic. It's free and everyone should use it!
Meanwhile, you might want to consider signing up for the Thirty Paintings in Thirty Days Challenge which is scheduled again for January 2015! It's a great way to start out the new year!
