Giving gifts is a big part of the Holiday Season.  In a sense, I think of the art marketing ideas, information and inspiration I produce in my blog posts, podcasts and webinars throughout the year as gifts for artists.

This Post Is My Holiday Gift to You.

Below is a selection of the best and most popular art marketing post published on Art Print Issues posts this year. Additionally, you will find links to every art marketing podcast produced by my good friend, art marketing extraordinaire and broadcast partner, Jason Horejs and me in 2013.

Making 2014 Your Best Year Ever.

A couple of years ago, I wrote a post about how good was the new great. It described a feeling many of us have developed since the 2008 financial meltdown. Prosperity ebbed for many of us afterwards. Certainly, selling artwork was more difficult then than now.

All said; recently things have improved. The stock market has rallied, property prices have begun moving upward, and new jobs are growing. Do these trends translate to more art sales? The situation is better than before, but there is still work to do. The good news is you now have situations favorable for your art career success. This includes the huge factor that art buyers now are more inclined to buy directly from artists.

Your Destiny Is in Your Power.

You have the best tools ever for any artist in any age to promote your work. You have the resources to build personal relationships with collectors and patrons. You have the opportunity to control your destiny. It is in your power. The information in blog posts included here and in the podcasts with Jason and me are linchpins and levers.

  1. I am going to have to fast-track getting more commissions, since I graduate January 8th with my Associates Degree in Graphic Design. So I’m going to have to begin making my student loan payments, and have to make enough to cover them. I would love to have your thoughts on how to steer more traffic to my website, and increase my sales. I get a lot of “likes” on Facebook, but unless they translate into “cash” they’re worthless. Also, I’ve tried point of purchase companies such as CafePress and Zazzle, and I’m just not making any money through them either. Both seem to be complete rip-offs. Lots of others are complaining about them as well.
