Would you like to know how to get one inexpensively?
Are you puzzled about how to register your domain name?
Do you want to learn how to write press releases?
…& how to use them to get free publicity??

Do you agonize over pricing your work? Would you like to know how to determine what your prices need to be, in order to cover your costs and pay you for your time?

Do you know how to find the people who are most likely to be interested in purchasing your art?

 Do you need more information to feel confident about promoting and selling your art?

PERHAPS you need my Business of Art Class

The Business of Art…How to Make Your Art Support You.

Are you working full time, struggling to find time & energy to paint?
Are you dreaming of the day you can quit your day job,
Paint full time, & let your art support you?
You can hasten the arrival of that day by learning what to do.
I’m a working artist who has been supporting myself with my art since 1972.
In this class I reveal my secrets of HOW I do it.
You’ll learn ways to get a website inexpensively…one that you can update yourself.
You’ll learn how to get people to visit it.
You’ll learn how to sell online & how to pick the way that will work best for you.

You’ll learn how to find the right price for your art so you will cover all expenses,
including your time. Because if you aren’t paid for your time, you’ll need that JOB.

You’ll learn how to decide what gallery to approach

            & what to do if you don’t get in.

You’ll learn other ways to show & sell your art.
You’ll learn how find potential collectors of your art
…& how to keep in contact with them and with your collectors.

You’ll learn how to get free publicity that is far more valuable than any advertising.

I will not tell you that all of this is easy or simple.
But if you know what to do and you do any part of it,
you will be far ahead of where you are now.
You will have a real advantage over artists who do not know what to do.

This class provides the step by step plan for you to begin marketing your art effectively and with confidence.

  • Take the class & learn what to do.
  • Follow the plan. Take the steps one-at-a-time, as you can.
  • Watch your art income grow.
  • When you have enough art income, you can quit the day job

I’m the only working artist who is sharing information about selling & pricing art.
I also include valuable information about how to get free publicity.

If you want to learn these things, you can learn them in my Business of Art Class.

In this class I have broken marketing down into easy steps you can effortlessly follow to start selling your art.

 Knowledge is power, but it is elusive and hard to gain, so take advantage of mine.

My best opportunities come to me through my web site.

1. How to get your web site for a minimum cost and effort

Knowledge + Inspiration + Action = Success

Do you fantasize
         that an agent or a gallery will somehow find you?
         recognize how talented you are ?
         and beg to be allowed to represent you--to sell everything you can create?

I admit... it is a pleasant fantasy...but it can not happen if you are quietly working in your own studios, invisible to the world.

Would you like to gain power...and increase your level of success...by taking responsibility for your own career?
Do you want to learn how to promote yourself--to make others aware of you and your art--using the power of the internet AND the power of free publicity?

By making yourself visible to the world, you enable opportunities to find you.

I am NOT promising the fantasy. What this class teaches you is REAL. If you take the actions, you will experience REAL RESULTS.

  • This class shows clearly the steps you need to take.
  • And it helps you see how to take them.
  • You can take one simple step at a time.
  • Each step you take helps you feel more confident.

EVERY STEP in this class deals directly  with PROMOTING AND SELLING YOUR ART!

YOU DECIDE which steps you want to take first. Choose the steps that feel comfortable to you. 
Some of the steps are so easy that you could already be doing them, if you knew what they were.

Are you ready to take control of your art sales?  This class provides the essential information.

Sheila Conner, participant in my December class, went home and took action. She has built an awesome web site.

Sheila, thank you for sharing. I know you will inspire other artists by sharing your process of working through the overwhelm. When a task feels huge, we each tend to think it is beyond our abilities. But by breaking it down and taking one step at a time, we can complete any task...just like eating that elephant.

Sheila said:
"When I took Ann's Business of Art class last December, I felt so intimidated!  After all, I'm an artist, not a business woman.  And there was so much information!  I must admit, I left feeling a little overwhelmed.

BUT I decided to begin like you do when you eat an elephant--one bite at a time!  I began reading  through the notebook (a BIG help) and doing little things, like getting a URL address. 

Each time I took a step and succeeded, my confidence rose. 

The key is to just START. 

Within a month, I had a web site up and running, business cards and postcards in hand, and now, a photo blog---all because Ann told me I could, and gave me good tools to work with!  If I can do it, anyone can do it!"

Sheila made excellent use of the information I provided in class and in the workbook!

Like Sheila said, the workbook is a BIG help. You don't have to remember anything. Using the workbook, you take one step at a time, at your own pace. If you get confused or have a question, you can email me and I will provide help. "START" is the magic word. If you do not start, nothing happens!

And IF you don't know where to start, or what to do next, nothing is likely to happen.

Are you ready to stack the cards in your favor by getting the information you need?

Your WEB SITE and your PUBLICITY work for you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, while you are creating, and while you are sleeping--but ONLY if you set them up so they can work.

This class (Workbook and Audio CDs) simplifies the business side of art. It provides the information for you to use whenever you need it.

Learning something so new and different can be intimidating. Even the words are strange.
Having someone explain it makes learning easier...more comfortable.

You will learn:

1. How to get your web site for a minimum cost and effort
2. What name to use for the site
3. How to get people to visit your site
4. How to write a press or media release (including template and examples)
5. How to increase your visibility to the world
6. How to know at what price you need to sell your art, in order to make a profit.

  • After reading this workbook or listening to these tapes, you will
    1. understand the big picture.
    2. see the steps you need to take.
    3. know where and how to start.

How do you prefer to learn? Whether you prefer to read or listen, this class provides your preferred format...AND if you have a question, knowing that you can get an answer directly from me will probably increase your comfort level with this new material. I know that I always feel MUCH more comfortable having someone to ask when I have questions!

Joy Cottrell of Spring, Texas, said:
"I'm listening to your first CD in my car. I just love it. It's clear & easy to hear.
Thanks to you, I'm convinced I can just do an inexpensive, simple web site---just to show my work.

Now I know I can and should start with a place to lead people just so they can see my work! And the advice to use my name & .com is invaluable.

Thank you so much for sharing this down-to-earth information, for sharing your mistakes, & for not sounding high & mighty perfect!! It gives us hope! I've just pretty-well skimmed everything, but I will study & re-read as time permits."

You will understand how to price your work to increase your profits, and you will be able to begin taking advantage of free publicity. I cannot force you to take action. Many artists take no action to promote themselves. Every action you take puts you ahead. If you have questions, I provide answers at no additional charge,  through the online support group, where I answer every question personally.

If you have questions about whether this class contains specific information that you are seeking, please send me your specific questions and I will tell you whether those questions are answered in the class material.

PS. When we are dealing with totally new information, it is usually necessary to hear it several times before we really understand it and feel ready to act on it. That is why I have included the CDs as part of this course...so you can play them when you are driving. I find the CDs to be actually more valuable than the book in most of the information courses I have purchased.
