Marketing professional Arnold White delivers a powerful self help guide for artists-available free.
White believes that Artists are born with the gift to create but he knows that turning that gift into income must be learned. "Marketing Your ArtÂ The Visual Artist's Guide to Making Money," White's free instant downloadable ebook, was specially written to enable Artists to "market their skills, achieve recognition and reap well-deserved financial rewards for their efforts," he says.
A Look Between the "Covers"
Six densely packed chapters cover the essentials in detail, without fluff or hype. Artists interested in making their mark in the art world learn how to effectively present work for review to competitions and juried events and how to use proven key strategies to get published.
For bottom-line-oriented readers, Marketing Your Art explores the numerous markets where artists effectively generate income from their work, plus information on how to submit work to publishers and agents. White emphasizes that artists must "embrace 21st Century technology for marketing regardless of the medium they use for their creations" in order to achieve sales. He has devoted an entire chapter to the "art" of maximizing sales on the Internet and getting the most value from an online presence. Links within the book go to important art sources making the experience interactive.
Putting a Price on Creativity
For many artists, no question is more confusing than pricing. White explains in plain-and-simple language the three key "how to" concepts in this vital area: how to place a value on each "creation," how to differentiate between wholesale and retail pricing, and (ultimately) how to determine the price point that will transform "Art" into "Sold Art." And to ensure that artists hold on to more of the money they earn, White talks about tax considerations and deductions including travel, supplies, entertainment, education, and joint filing.
When this reporter asked the question why free WhiteÂs answer was simple and direct. ÂThe Art world has been very good to me and Artists are the most important part of the Art world so the book is just my way of saying Thank You and giving back a little of what IÂve gottenÂ.
