Thank you for a very complete class, now I have to get started on my website !
It works like a personal coach.
With the online classes “How to sell my art online” I am working on the tips Sandrine gives me.
As I presumed it is a lot of work, but her classes are coaching me step by step to reach my goal.
The result will be shown in my web shop to realise in 2018.
Doing the work myself is a lot cheaper than hiring a professional and through these classes I will
be able to update the site myself any time necessary.
Is this an eBook?
It is a text based class that you read online. There are a few assignments and feed back forms to complete.
Are all of your classes a text based class rather than videos? Seems rather expensive for something like this.
I think it is fairly priced as the class is quite extensive and I give you feed back on your website and social media presence.
The painting flowers from imagination is video based.
Trying to be honest with what stops me from going forward with my art I don’t have the confidence I need, I participate in an Art League here in the midwest and two art groups each week. The average people I paint with are not very commercial minded we participate in some gallery shows. A few months ago there was a juried show with probably 30 entries out of this show one piece was sold. This is discouraging to me, this show was at an area community center. Personally I would like to sell my art I am mostly self taught but I have skills. I am an older artist my computer skills are not the best I have problems posting etc. My art on my facebook page has not been updated for some time I know it should be so easy to do this but it is difficult for me. The course you offer sounds very good I am just not sure I could follow through at this time so many distractions.
Thank you for your time,
Thanks for your honesty Jeanette. I think as artists we are all different and what might work for an artist might not work for another. From what you are telling me, selling your art online might not be the easiest way to start in your case. Maybe starting by developing a local recognition of your work might work better.
All the best for your future projects.
