Keep It Simple, Stupid or Happy New Year


Blogging Success

OK- So I have been reading about art, marketing, art marketing, blogging, etc. 
what "they" say out there is I should be:
  1. writing at least 1000 words per day,
  2. spending at least 10 hours writing each blog post,
  3. reading at least 10 hours (of blogs) per week,
  4. commenting on other blogs daily,
  5. studying copywriting,
  6. studying marketing,
  7. learning html code- at least some basics,
  8. linking into social networking (they don't agree on the effectiveness of the various networks, but Facebook is a must),
  9. developing a product if I have a service and vice versa, and
  10. asking my readers to subscribe to 'my stuff,' which, right now is this blog.
OK- I don't have time for all this...so I'll never be the 'cream of the crap' of bloggers,
but you, my friend, could become a bloggin' superstar!

Art Marketing Salon

Free Art Marketing Info

Marketing our art can be challenging when we feel we are going it alone.  Banding with a group of fellow artists can make the task feel less like work and more do-able, however.  Although there are numerous ways to achieve this, one of the most traditional and under utilized may be the art salon.

As you know, I am a fan of Alyson Stanfield and her art marketing book, I'd rather be in the studio!.  She also provides loads of information on her blog, Art Biz Blog.  I have found yet another resource that Ms. Stanfield has generously made available to artists at no charge.   It is her plan for creating your own >Art Marketing Salon.

Stanfield asks, "Artists: Does trying to promote your artwork have you feeling alone, frustrated, or unmotivated?"  She then offers a solution free of charge.  On Stanfield's >artbizconnection website you will find a structured step by step outline on how to create and run an art marketing salon.  Furthermore, she offers additional resources to art salons who choose to register as an Art Biz Connection Salon.  Yep, It's really free.
