ARTISTS: Want to know how to create RED-HOT SALES in a down economy? Let me know if you’re interested.

It’s not only possible; it’s easier than you think. I’ll offer some tips about it on this blog soon if there is enough interest. Here’s why.

Artists keep asking me how to improve sales in a down economy. The truth is that sales can be better than ever, even in this economy. If your marketing efforts are on target. But most artists don’t have a clue.

Every day I’m asked a million questions by “wannabe” artists – artists who could actually make good money from their work if they did things right. They ask:

Where should I show my art?

How can I make more people see my work?

Do I need to advertise?

Do I need a gallery?

How can I connect with buyers?

How can I stand out from the rest?

How can I get a wider audience without spending money?

Should I be on eBay or other auction sites?

What about the social networking sites?

How can I avoid getting ripped off?

Where do I start?

Rather than answer these questions one at a time, I have decided to share this with everyone if there is enough interest.

It’s a lot of material, but it’s organized so it can be used in little increments or a full-on assault.
If you want to thrive in this economy, you’ll want to have this.

Many artists successfully make a living from their art. And we have fun doing it.

BTW: There are FAR MORE successful artists out there than you realize. Many of them are flying below the radar, which is why YOU don’t know about them. But their buying audience knows about them – and continues to buy, and buy, and buy.

Here’s the irony: Many of these successful artists are nowhere near as good as loads of unsuccessful artists. They simply know how to create red-hot sales – and keep it going. No matter what the economy. That’s what makes all the difference.

Let me know if you’re interested.

Hi Tom,
I've been following your blog for a while now, and I'd sure be interested to hear what you have to say on this topic. I've been painting for about 15 years, and working full-time for as many years. Would love to learn how to make a bit more income from my art, than I'm already making. Love your work. Thanks, Cheryl

Sure, I'd love to know how to sell more of my art. I've been painting for about ten years and do sell occasionally but my sales are pretty modest.
Thanks, Bill
