Marketing for Artists: How Can Artists Find Their Niche?
How Can Artists Find Their Niche?
Why do some artists become famous and others not, despite their talent? How can artists determine their niche in today’s market?
One of the most pressing questions for artists, photographers, and artisans is “how do I find my niche?” If artists would only answer this question, they would struggle far less to sell their art and they would not feel like sell-outs when they do. The art and craft markets are undergoing significant disruption, just like the music and publishing industries. This disruption is spelling bad news for established artists, yet good news for artists who know their "Four-Part Code:"
1. "Why" - What is your creative purpose?
2. "What" - What is your mission?
3. "How" - How do you solve a problem that is worth solving?
4. "Who" - Who is your target market? Using “The Four-Part Code,” we will re-examine art history and learn how famous artists determined their niche. Then we’ll apply the “The Four-Part Code” to three emerging artists, just like you.
Learn how you can sell your art without feeling like a sell-out.
