Great post, Clint. Since finding Hugh about 6 months ago, I've been trying to put his ideas to work for me as an artist. One interesting question for me and I'm sure many others, is how to have those conversations with your established collector base that doesn't necessarily read blogs, tweet, etc. This past year I widened my collectors to include people who found my work on line and I definitely see that as the growth path. But the people who buy my work at shows and in galleries are, at this moment, a larger group- and of course its always easier to build on the collector you have rather than find a new one. I keep in touch with an e-newsletter, etc but I'm really trying to find a way to either get those people into my blog "conversation" or find another format that will more effectively communicate my story to them and in turn encourage them to share it with others. This is one of my main marketing goals for 2009.
