Small Art Business Coaching
Hi there! I'm looking for direction with my effort to market and sell my small, affordable abstract paintings. I currently sell a few per month to friends and friends of friends, but I would like to add a modest but steady income stream from selling to the general public.
The caveat is that I am very, very ill and home/bed bound. I can't get out there personally to promote my work or interact with gallery owners or run pop-up shops. I've sent my work to a few fine gift shops in the past and they have not displayed it properly or with enough visibility, and I can't check in personally and ensure the displays are adequate for selling the work.
I have a small Facebook page that gets interaction mostly from people I know.
I need good ideas that are manageable for me and will help establish a way for me to sell to the public.
I am interested in a chat session (text chat in Simbi or any other program is fine!) from an artist business coach or a small business coach with familiarity with different ways of selling art.
My art can be viewed at http://www.grind-studio.com. I am located in Maine, about 1 hour inland from the coast.
Thank you for considering my request!
