Steps to Sell More Art
While there are many elements to a successful sale, the process itself is simple once you understand your role. Here is a snippet of the article! Enjoy!
1) Build Strong Relationships
Your potential buyers have needs, passions, strengths and weaknesses. Your #1 goal is to build a long term relationship. Be bold when you introduce yourself. Extend your hand and say “good afternoon, I am --, this is my art.”
2) Give your Potential Buyers Space
Engage potential buyers and tell them a story about the art, it is also critical to give them some space. Selling art is like a little dance; take the lead!
3) Ask for the Close
Asking buyers to commit can seem a little scary at first. You might feel like you are taking a risk by asking. You face a far greater risk if you don’t try to close the sale: someone who loves a piece might not end up buying simply because they weren’t given the opportunity.
