Here is an excerpt from Chapter One.
If you would like practical advice and useful ideas for artists on websites, email marketing, blogging and more, you’ve found an excellent source.
The whole world, it seems, is online. The internet has changed everything. To say the internet is a disruptive force is an understatement. While it’s taken a toll on legacy industries such as physical galleries, it’s opened up new opportunities for visual artists.
Too many artists have been told at some point to get a job. And, that making and selling art was too hard, and only a lucky few got their tickets punched to success. If that were ever true, it’s a lie now.
Artists alive in this generation are the first ever to have tools that allow them to connect with buyers and sell to them directly. The internet has changed our buying habits. We can now get so close and learn so much about anything we want to buy, and then e-commerce, UPS, and FedEx make everything readily available. In many metro areas, consumers can order from Amazon and other retailers and get same-day deliveries. The marketing – and therefore the art world – is literally at our fingertips.
Consumers are comfortable buying luxury items such as diamonds from Costco.com and pricey fine art from Saatchiart.com or dozens of other online galleries. You can market your art online, too. In fact, it’s not just that you can, but that you should learn how to sell art online. It is your future. It is now.
