SELLING YOUR ART ONLINE
With all the changes to our lives and world the physical outlets for exhibiting your work for sale are not available to your clients and collectors but they are still out there looking for work to buy. So, there’s no better time to begin or improve the way you sell your work online.
There are a few key things to consider and prepare for before you get started
Best Foot Forward
Make sure that your website is up to date and that you have a clear idea of what work you have available for sale. If you need help getting a good record keeping practice in place check out the 2020 Curates guide HERE
Before you engage in making any sales make sure you have looked at the numbers. Decide your shipping rates and discount rates
Stop before you ship
Be sure that any artwork that leaves your studio is signed, is in a package that contains your contact details and a receipt.
Celebrate the sale! When you’re finished that be sure to add the client’s details to your database and update your stock records and website to reflect the sale
