In continuing our conversation from the last post – what it looks like when you do ‘go for it’ – today I offer you another video of artists who are in the mix, sharing tips and tricks from their own experience. This talk focuses on selling your work online and will be particularly useful for visual artists or fashion designers, but will benefit EVERYONE who needs to refocus their relationship with the web and how you ought to be maximizing on the tools.
Here, you’ll learn about sites (Etsy.com, Paypal.com, Kickstarter.com), utilizing a blog as well as twitter and facebook, graduating your store to your own website (all things we’ve talked about in the Making Your Website Work post), marketing and staying productive, among LOTS and LOTS of other great bits of advice! The featured speaker Chanel Kennebrew and guest artists are generously candid about their processes. Listen. Study!
