So, you want your work to sell. But, you hate marketing your art. Sounds like a pretty big conflict, doesn't it? It's as though 'sales' and marketing' are dirty words (or, a dirty job).
ArtBiz coach, Alyson Stanfield sums it up beautifully and calls a spade a spade, methinks-in her article titled,
"So You Don't Feel Like Marketing"
(by Alyson Stanfield)
Remember when you were a kid and your mom asked you to clean your room or to pick up your toys?
Remember the wrath that was imposed upon you when you replied to her request with a whiny “But I don’t feel like it, Mom”?
It’s time to ask yourself if you’re being your same childlike stubborn self when it comes to marketing your art. Are you avoiding too many marketing tasks because you “don’t feel like it?”
If you are trying to make money from your art, you are responsible for certain tasks that you may not feel like doing.
Come on, embrace being that Little Red Hen and stop making excuses!
