Tips for artists: How to Sell Art?

   Posted by: admin    in Art Galleries

You gave the last finishing touch to your painting and it is all set to be sold. Selling artwork is as difficult as making it, yes, it’s true!

Marketing your talent is a way to offer an impression to the world about what your creative flair can accomplish. Hence, when you are out there (in the market) to sell your art, what’s your action plan? Do you think of it as a random affair? Because if you did, that’s not going to help you anyhow.

Quest to sell art

So, here are the tips that would help you before you get out there to sell your work online. Take a look:

The pricing

Probably the trickiest of all, it becomes simply impossible to decide on what price should be set for an artwork. No one can tell this. I cannot sit here in my room, in front of my PC and judge the hard work and time you have devoted in creating some artwork. It is almost impossible.

However, the brightest tip that I can offer you is that you should never undersell yourself. This doesn’t mean that you tag your first painting for a whopping million dollars, but price it reasonably.

There is a specific reason why I am saying this. If you are going to price your art piece less, the buyers are going to regard the piece correspondingly. As an art lover, I know, if I am purchasing a painting worth $40 and another one for $400, I am going to be more caring and considerate about the second one.

Also, you can offer some of your artworks as a gift, which ultimately cements your goodwill in the market.

So, as an artist, you should always make sure that you are pricing your hard work reasonably.

Match your skills

From the previous point, do not get the wrong impression. If you are an artist with 20 or 30 years of experience and charging your paintings worth $4000 or more, it does make sense. However, for the artists who have merely begun, pricing their paintings on the same scale doesn’t make sense. Why?

Because art-making is a continuous process of learning and improvement. The more time you will devote, the higher level of skills you will master. Artists who over promises the client have to experience disappointment when client disapproves their work. So, be honest with yourself and price your talent accordingly.

Agreement is important

The world is beautiful, people are not! Don’t get me wrong but as an artist, there will be incidents when the client will not pay you or will try to change the price after you finish the work. Hence, to avoid all such nuisance, make sure to prepare an agreement with your client in writing. This assures that no deviation will occur.

The next time you are on the quest to sell art, take care of these tips and you will be good to go! Thanks!
