  1. Know who your buyer is.
    Know where your buyer is.
    Make art for several prongs of business. Example: my originals are generally large works requiring large walls. Yet, many of my peers want to own the work but have little funds or little space. I make limited edition runs of 11 x 17 prints (edition size 50). These you can have signed or unsigned. Unsigned is one price point, signed/personalized is another.

  2. I continue to keep a positive attitude. By showing the buyer that you are confident in yourself and have a positive attitude shows the buyer that you are worthy of your work!

    • That is so true. How many times have you heard an artist who almost apologizes for their work, or they haven’t got any confidence at all? Anyone would hesitate to buy from them.

    • I was once told by a mentor of mine that “a sale is the transfer of enthusiasm from one person to another.” I believe this to be true.

  3. I published a book about my art. It has been one of the best tools I have found for helping sell my art.

  4. One client asked me who I am when he observed one of my paintings and since then I have made sure that people know me by goining the Montagu Art Association,and helping out at Church markets and through being active I have been noticed.
