So you now have your show schedule and you have your work all ready to go. Next you need a marketing plan to get the message out and find people who love your work as much as you do….and have the cash to pay for it! Easy to say but not always so easy to do. Join Kate Taylor on March 21 as she provides some key marketing ideas that are easy and cost effective to implement, helping you build your unique brand in your art practice.
This seminar will cover the 4 Ps of marketing:
• Product – your work
• Price – what is your pricing strategy? How sensitive is your pricing to change?
• Place – where will you sell your work and how does that fit in your marketing strategy?
• Promotion – website, business cards, social media….how do you let your audience know where to find your work?
