Have you tried THIS to sell your art & crafts?

Hi Friends! I have exciting news! In a few days I will be setting up shop in a local Antiques mall! I have rented space there before to sell my cards, jewelry and paintings with varying degrees of success. This is the 3rd time I will be renting in this shop and I have been on the waiting list for 9 months hoping for a spot to come available. This might be a good solution for others trying to make some money off their art. I will chat about this and other options for selling your work in today’s Art Marketing Vlog:

Everytime I do an art marketing video people ask me about ETSY and what I think about it as a place to sell crafts. I have to admit that I have never tried it but my friend Renae Christine from RichMomBusiness.com has a free webinar all about succeeding on Etsy called Why Your Etsy Shop is Failing. In her Etsy tutorial she will teach you how to run a successful Etsy shop and increase views to your page and most importantly boost sales. Renae is the leader in teaching about etsy and she loves to help mom businesses succeed. You can sign up for her free webinar here.

If you want to see my other tips for selling, packaging and displaying art please check out my Art Marketing Playlist.

I will share another video of my shop when it is open, I hope to set it up on January 1st or 2nd (I’m paying rest so I don’t want to waste a day LOL!) so stay tuned! If you have any questions on renting space in shops, Co-Ops, consigning your work or craft fairs leave them in the comments. If you have questions about ETSY sign up for Renae’s free Etsy Webinar because I really can’t help you there. Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!

Ask A Crafter 23: Mixed Media & Marketing!

Howdy friends! It was so funny, almost all the questions we got for Ask a Crafter this week were mixed media questions. And then I got a couple craft business and marketing questions so I decided to do this weeks main show on mixed media and a bonus video on marketing and getting published. So, first up here are your questions about art supplies and mixed media. Again I am joined by my lovely friend Kathy.

And now if you ever wanted to make some money with your crafts, get your artwork published or learn how I started out in art check out the bonus video!

I’ve mentioned before how viewers like to help one another out offering tips to questions asked so please check out the YouTube comments on AAC 23 Mixed Media and AAC Bonus Craft Marketing, there was even a lady with a shop who offered space on her counter if anyone had cards to sell. I think that is awesome! If you have a question for next weeks show leave it in the comments and it might get answered in the video next week, if not I’ll type an answer at least! Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
