Today’s Art Marketing Action newsletter encourages you to create habits and routines to free your creative mind. The assumption is that these are good habits and routines. But what about the bad ones? Are you guilty of any of the following?
Bad habit #1: Not following up with leads
When someone gives you a lead for your career, you should jump on it. If it’s not an opportunity meant for you, you still owe it to the person who gave you the lead to see it to its conclusion. See the Art Biz Report Follow Up and Say Thank You.
Bad habit #2: Not having a plan
If you don’t know where you’re going, how will you know when you get there? Have a vision for your success and a plan to get there. I help my clients do this, but you can also create a support system of your own with the salons and free marketing plans available to you at ArtBizConnection.com.
Bad habit #3: Neglecting your mailing list
How can I drill it into your head how important this mailing list is. It’s YOURS! It’s useless to anyone else, but the people you know and those who have expressed interest in your art (some even by buying it) need to be kept up-to-date about your career. And you can’t do that if your mailing list is a wreck. See Cultivating Collectors for help with this.
Bad habit #4: Staying in your studio
The world isn’t going to come knocking on your door! You have to put yourself out there. Hey, I just happen to have a book coming out by the end of the year to help you with this.
