“What if I make a really “niche” or unique kind of art?
The workshop is designed to help you succeed no matter what kind of art you sell. It doesn't matter how weird or unique your style is, you can earn from your art online. In fact the more unique your work is, the easier it'll be to find and grow your audience.
“What if I live in Europe, or India…?”
Yes, this will help you. Students span across 30+ countries and have found success all around the world. The online entrepreneurial techniques you’re learning are based off basic human psychology and are proven.
“What industry does this work for?”
Current readers include fine artists, illustrators, pattern makers, graphic designers, photographers, comic book artists, hand-letterers, textile makers, among other. The only requirement is that you have the desire to sell the things you make. As an artist your voice can translate to creating and selling any creative products, ranging from fine art originals, prints, posters, postcards, clothing, and other products with your work on or in them.
“When can I expect to make money?”
I can’t promise you specific results from your art business in a specific time frame. Nobody can. If someone EVER promises you this run away. Here’s why: We all begin at different levels of experience and skill. We all have different niches, audiences, and markets. It would make no sense to promise “general” results just to get you to trust me. Instead, I’m going to be honest with you and be truthful about the challenging nature of this guide If you’re methodical and follow the action steps, you'll see results. And looking back, 1-2 years from now, the amount of time you invested will show in the results you get.
“But I don't have an audience, will this work?”
Even artists with THOUSANDS of fans can’t sell their art without the right launch plan
A while back, when my email list was around 1,500+ subscribers I thought it would be easy to sell a bunch of art prints I had collecting dust in my studio.
So one night before I went to bed, I sent a quick email to my list announcing they were for sale. I went to bed that night expecting to wake up to a bunch of orders the next morning.
The results? I didn’t sell a single print.
Here’s why: I sprang the print on my audience before I built up desire. I just announced it. I didn’t get anyone excited, tell the backstory about the print, or create a sense of urgency to buy it.
I didn’t have a CONVERSATION with my audience about the print before I made it available for purchase.
I just “announced” it.
It was jarring, spammy, and not an artisanal experience for my audience.
This same mistake is made all the time by artists who are puzzled why their THOUSANDS of fans don’t drive meaningful sales.
Remember, to make art sales you have to launch.
I share the exact email scripts and proven launch frameworks in this workshop.
Building a following for your art takes time. It’s especially difficult when you may not have a clear goal in mind for your blog. But sharing your creative process and what you're working on changes that.
Just the act of making your art — and giving people a way to follow along — will make it substantially easier to grow a profitable audience. By using landing pages and blog posts to build an email list — and keeping my small audience interested — you can build a profitable following in very little time. I’ll show you how to do it step-by-step.
With the right audience, a solid launch plan, a little discipline, and a lot of effort, you can make a living from your art.
