Are You Worried About the "Orphaned Works" Copyright Hype?

by Clint Watson on 4/29/2008 9:04:00 AM
7 Comments

There have been a lot of emails circulating from artists who are worried about the "orphaned works" copyright bill.  Specifically, artists are worried that their copyrights are going to be taken away. I don't know much about the bill or the proposed changes and I wanted to talk to someone knowledgeable because it is really easy on the Internet for things to get blown out of proportion. So I called an expert:  Bill Frazier, an attorney who specializes in art-related matters who writes the Art and the Law column for Art of the West Magazine. Bill's been following [...]

Clint's Must-Read Articles for Artists, April 20-26

Dear artists, Here are some great articles we've found on the internet over the past week that are directly applicable to helping you with art, marketing, inspiration and fine living: Dick Harrison's 10 Commandments for Selling What You Create: 1. YOU CANíT SELL IT IF YOU DONíT SHOW IT 2. The most effective way to show and sell your art is almost always in person with the art in hand. If you show and sell your own work, you deserve 100% of the profit. If you ask others to help you sell your art, they must be fairly compensated for their knowledge, time, effort and expenses.

5 Rules to Name Your Artist Website Right

by Clint Watson on 4/24/2008 10:56:24 AM
6 Comments

Your website needs a great name.....or "domain" in tech-speak. Keep it simple.  Register your own name as your domain for your art website . . . . your name is what people will remember when they fall in love with your art, and your name is what they will search for online. A proper online presence for every artist begins with a good old-fashioned website. Your website is you “home base”…your “hub.” If you branch out into other online tools……great…..but your website is where you and your visitors begin and end. Sure [...]

Dear artists, Here are some great articles we've found on the internet over the past week that are directly applicable to helping you with art, marketing, inspiration and fine living: Seth provides us with a great rule regarding who we can market to and how to do it: "The rule is simple:  You can contact just about anyone you want. The only rule is you need to contact them personally, with respect, and do it months before you need their help! Contact them about them, not about you. Engage. Contribute. Question. Pay attention. Read. Interact." (Read Original >>) Ever wonder what a piece of art created by 10,000 [...]

by Clint Watson on 4/15/2008 12:15:19 AM

Engaged Prospects Thinking About Buying Art

To experience art marketing success, to sell more artwork, to become a microcelebrity.... what you truly need with your prospects is ENGAGEMENT. is Starack of Entrepreneuers Journey defines engagement this way: "Engagement means that [your fans] are not only entertained and informed, they come away truly benefiting from your output.

Comment on this

Dear artists, Here are some great articles we've found on the internet over the past week that are directly applicable to helping you with art, marketing, inspiration and fine living: Artist Sue Smith shares a book that explains why getting older is great for your art, because we get more creative as we age: "According to Lindauer, new research reveals that over time, creative people increase both the quality of their artistic output, and the quantity, over their lifetimes, with productivity peaking during their 60's, but the quality of the output remaining steady at the lifetime highs well into the 70's.

by Clint Watson on 4/1/2008 7:41:21 AM
2 Comments

Of every $100 in sales the average artist has, he only gets to keep $30 Think about this when formulating your business plan and/or your price structure. How did I arrive at this conclusion? I was reading one of the "Deep Thought" posts over on Alyson Stanfield's Art Biz Blog (http://www.artbizblog.com/2008/03/deep-thought--2.html) and the artist, Patricia Oblack, made a comment regarding costs that got me thinking . . . Essentially the math breaks down like this:  Let's assume you have a $100 work of art (low, I know, but just for illustration purposes). If you sell it in a gallery, then you generally lose 50% off the [...]
