Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals
(this is a sponsored podcast)
The high overhead of doing 30 shows a year exhausting you? What if you only did 20? or 10? When I first started my websites I thought if I only had $500 more a month that would be great. Now nearly 15 years later I'm no longer putting up a tent and traveling to events. Social media, learning its ins and outs, made the difference for me.
My guest is Dave Emmons who shares some of the same background I do. He has participated in art fairs for 27 years. A while back he thought there "might be a better way" to sell his work, starting to hate what he was doing. Whether you are new to this business of art fairs and are intrigued with having more freedom in your life or you are a long time veteran and just want to slow down, Dave's (and my) premise is "let's get online."
Your customers are online, an international audience, shopping online 24/7. You have (or should have) email lists of your buyers. You probably have a website. You're probably on Facebook, maybe even a FB business page. We're going to learn from Dave how you can put it to work to make your life even better. Dave is an artist who also coaches other artists on the skills needed to sell their work online.
If you're saying, "I've tried that"; "I'm too busy", "It's too complicated" ... or the myriad other reasons, listen to this podcast. I think it might help you.
