Selling & Promoting Art
So you have heard about this thing called “art licensing” and it sounds pretty good! You can earn income by licensing the same art to multiple manufacturers to use on different products. “Sounds great!” you think. “Where do I sign up!” you ask. “Hold onto your paintbrushes!” I say. Before you start putting a lot of time and energy thinking about the dream that is art licensing, you need to understand the reality of how to succeed in the industry.
So you’ve heard about art licensing and think it sounds amazing! You can create art and have several people pay you for the rights to use it. ou don’t have to do any of the marketing, selling or credit card processing. Heck, you’ve heard about people who make millions doing it so why shouldn’t you? Well… it’s not that easy.
I love to give quick links about art-related articles and events on Twitter. Other times, I like to just make you smile with my tweets. Check out this post if you think you missed something in the past week.
