Event description

Description

If you are a creative professional who wants to earn a living from your work, knowing how to create, package, give away, and sell merchandise is a critical skill. It allows you to stop waiting for others to handle these tasks and gives you the ability to start turning your passion into your profession.

This event will introduce you to dozens of sites that will let you create products for free. Many will give you a free site through which to sell them. If you are a writer, artist, designer, performer, videographer, etc. you will find this workshop helps you open dozens of doors.

Location & Free Parking: The West Hollywood Library located at 625 N San Vicente Blvd, West Hollywood, CA 90069 is one of the most beautiful buildings in Los Angeles. It is located near San Vicente and Melrose, across the street from the Pacific Design Center. Enter the parking lot from San Vicente. The entrance is right next to the library. From the parking lot's third floor you can walk across a ramp to the library entrance. The library community room is just to the right of the library's main entrance. If you arrive a little early you can explore the library which is a great investment of your time. The library opens at 11:00. Parking is free for this event. Remember to get your validation before you leave the library community room.

Topics Addressed:

  • How to sell video, CDs, DVDs, books, booklets, key chains, coffee cups, clothing, calendars, apps, and thousands of other products profitably with little or no upfront cost.
  • How packaging and selling your work successfully helps you become memorable/valuable to key decision makers, prove the value of your intellectual property, and increase the revenue you earn from your audience.
  • How to sell objects without having to buy them, store them, or ship them.
  • Why supporting yourself and your projects by actually selling your work is far more effective than asking for donations.

As a creative professional who wants to earn a living from your work, knowing how to create, package, give away, and sell merchandise is a critical skill. It allows you to side step waiting for others to handle these tasks and gives you more creative control over how you and your work are represented. It also gives you the ability to accurately evaluate costs and timelines when and if people want to license your work in the months an years to come.
