I am looking forward to being part of a fun panel of artists and media experts talking about marketing your work as an artist. Tonight!
“You Made It – Now Sell It! Tips and Tricks for Marketing Your Work,” the third in a series of four free panels on creativity and the lives of artists
7 PM Goodnow Library, 21 Concord Road in Sudbury, September 10, moderated by author Erica Ferencik.
First comes creation, then comes the marketplace. How does an artist present and market their wares? Is the “Rule of Seven” still true: do prospective buyers need to hear about your product seven times in order to push the “buy button? Read about it from key “influencers” on social media? Think about it: why did you buy that last book/chair/painting/song?
In this lively panel, authors and performers Randy Ross andJudah Leblang, master furniture designer Ray Bachand of 60 Nobscot home, singer and photographer Miranda Loud, and artists’ agent and media mogul Sabrina Velandry will answer questions such as: What are the best ways to get the word out about your work? What’s involved in creating a Kickstarter or other crowdsourcing campaign? How can I make the most sales without breaking the marketing bank?
Refreshments will be served.
This program is supported in part by a grant from the Sudbury Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
