As I was saying in the last post – yes Art or Creativity is a partnership- however it is also a relationship. How are you building your relationship with your fans – because that’s what the buyers of your Creative works are? Stop for a moment and really think about the people who buy your creative pieces whether they are paintings, digital prints, photos, sculpture or whatever. Really understand that they are your fans and not just clients. In fact with a little work on that relationship they can become raving fans.
And what do fans want – how can you build that relationship? – Here are some ideas
- be interested
- be interesting
- fans want to know about you – after all they have let you into their lives – there is a piece of you hanging on their living room wall
- as artists we need to appreciate the fact that in embracing our work, others open their hearts to us.
