Is your art a brand ?

Adapted form an original post here: Building a brand loyalty

The first impressions you get from your site’s visitors are critical. It is important to check what image and brand signals your website gives out. What does your Art Website say? A brand relies on continuity, clients need to have confidence in you and like to know that your company has a passion or belief – above all they need to know you are not simply in the game to make a quick profit and then disappear. Building a brand loyalty is paramount to continuing success. This is essential if you are a struggling artist.

There is no point in delivering the same product as the competition unless you come up with a strategy that makes you the brand leader.  Don’t convince yourself that a catchy gimmick  is going to be strong enough to get you to the top, the whole thing depends on building a culture around you, your art, your product, your service and the dream – people have to believe in you.

Nobody answers spam – promote your Art

Marketing you art is really propaganda You push out information about your creativity to galleries and clients, you exaggerate (maybe) your success, you get the crowd to believe in you.

You could employ a scatter gun approach to your art marketing strategy by trying a little of everything but this is the pathetic ploy of a desperate person.

If you target 100,000 people with unsolicited emails you will probably create a negative image for your business – bought email lists are not as effective as somebody saying “I’m interested in your Artworks”. Have a look in your own inbox for proof this approach does not work. Do you deal with the unsolicited direct (spamming) marketers and do you trust them? Do you read all the junk mail that drops onto your doormat? If you send out of 10.000 emails you might get a response from less than 1% of them – there is a possibility you might not get any quality leads at all. You have to be selective.

What is the best marketing strategy for your Art

Information is power and sharing information increases your web and marketing presence leading ultimately to more sales.  North Devon Web can install, manage and maintain your WordPress blog for you and they can do all this on one of their green servers. A WordPress blog is another marketing strategy used for increasing a site’s relevance, by second guessing what people search for when they are using a search engine, by using effective keywords in your blog posts.

One of the best ways to get into search engines is to use the blogging tool WordPress. This content management system delivers a mighty bang when optimizing a website. WordPress appeared in 2003, with a few users who were looking for a way to enhance the typography of writing on the Web. Since then it has grown to be the largest self-hosted blogging tool in the world, used on millions of sites and seen by tens of millions of people every day.

#Painting from life is a bit dull

Sometimes you just have to get back to basics and do a simple still life – returning back to the basic skills of painting a real subject is an interesting exercise – even if not very rewarding.

Wine Bottles – I have decided to call this study ‘Home Brew‘.

You can’t beat a good bottle of hangover inducing parsnip wine which usually weighs in at about 13% alcohol and is usually drinkable about 6 months after racking off…

A wine bottle is a bottle used for holding wine, generally made of glass. Some wines are fermented in the bottle, others are bottled only after fermentation. They come in a large variety of sizes, several named for Biblical kings and other figures. The standard bottle contains 750 ml, although this is a relatively recent development. Wine bottles are usually sealed with cork, but screw-top caps are becoming popular, and there are several other methods used to seal a bottle
