Selling your Art

Selling Your Art
    Layl McDill
“I’d say a major point in trying to create sellable art that I have used is to study the market. Look at what is selling that is similar in style and price point to what you are making.  Study your competition and learn from them as much as you can. Find a mentor that is willing to give you inside information.

Make sure what you are selling fits the market place you are selling in.  For instance, I have never been able to sell well at “Craft shows” because my work isn’t the style that people are looking for.  I do much better at “Arts Festivals”.  But every city and neighborhood has different “aesthetics” so study the other art in the area or if you are using an online platform study what sells best there too.

Figure out ways to make your production work quickly but also keep the FUN and creativity going so you keep it fresh and you still want to make it.
