What's the Lifetime Value of a Single Contact?

by Clint Watson on 2/23/2010 9:55:33 AM
27 Comments

Each person you know and meet has a "lifetime value" in terms of your career that is most certainly not immediately apparent. However, just as $1 in the bank will grow enormously over time through the "miracle" of compound interest, so will the benefits you receive from people *if* you treat each person with respect, honestly and with an attitude of how you can mutually help each other (not just what you can "get" from the other person) [...]

Are You Talking To Me?

by Keith Bond on 2/22/2010 1:21:53 PM

Are you getting the right people to join your mailing list and read your articles? Do you want collectors joining your list? I am sure the answer is yes. Do you want other artists joining your list? I am sure the answer is also yes. Do you want dealers? Probably yes. Others? Sure, why not? But which ones are most important to you? If you want to sell your work, then the collector must be the most important group. [...]

An Art Marketing Lesson From Your First Painting

by Clint Watson on 2/19/2010 8:45:56 AM
6 Comments

The thing is, that first painting taught you something. And the next painting taught you something else. And one-by-one, each painting taught you a little bit. You invested your time and money and purchased yourself an art "education" painting-by-painting, stroke-by-stroke. And today you're a much more accomplished artist because of that...Here's the lesson: Art marketing is the same way. [...]

If you're wondering why you haven't seen new FineArtViews articles in a while, it's because they've moved....over to where they really should have been. New FineArtViews Articles are now posted at: http://fineartviews.com/blog If you are an RSS subscriber the fineartviews articles will now be published at: http://data.fineartstudioonline.com/rssfeed.asp?id=13722 In the next few weeks, we'll also be moving the Informed Collector Posts to a new location and this blog will revert to what it was originally - ideas and musings about art, technology and other stuff by me - Clint Watson.  I just felt since FineArtViews and InformedCollector have grown into "brands" in their own right, with many [...]

The Wordless USP

by Clint Watson on 2/9/2010 9:25:26 AM
29 Comments

Yes, you need to attract your unique audience, your Collector Clan. But you don't do it by coming up with a catchy slogan and then trying to find those people that "match" your slogan. You do it by honing your own unique style, sharing your art and letting (and helping) those people find you...So if you're wracking your brain for a tagline, or being told you need to spend time or money on doing that, then relax and get back to what being an artist is all about. I give you permission to go to your easel and develop your wordless USP [...]

Linking...The Mighty Little 7-Letter Word

by Marsha Robinett on 2/4/2010 11:24:27 AM
63 Comments

This post is by guest author, Marsha Robinett.  This article has been edited and published with the author's permission. You should submit an article and share your views as a guest author by clicking here. I know some of you are aware of how links work on the internet. Yet, for others, it's just a complete mystery. If you are in the latter group, don't feel bad because we are going to change that here and now. For most artists, the word 'links' refers to the Links Category on their navigation bar. Trust me, there is much more to this little word than what appears on the surface. [...]

The True Focus of Art Marketing

by Lori Woodward on 2/3/2010 12:36:53 PM
35 Comments

When it comes to pricing artwork, our work is simply worth as much as a collector is willing to pay for it. It's our job as artists to market, to understand who our potential buyers are, what credentials they want to see, where they like to shop, and how they spend leisure time. [...]
