Often overlooked, however, is one of the most powerful tools – email. A well-cultivated email list gives you a direct channel of communication with potential buyers.

Email Marketing Tips — Leveraging Email to Generate More Art Sales.
As a visual artist working today, you have a powerful array of art marketing tools at your disposal. The old standbys such as advertising, direct mail, publicity and press releases still work. With technology and the Internet, you also have a reliable ally in social media to add to the mix.
Nothing Beats Email Marketing. It Gets the Job Done.
Email marketing stands alone as the most potent tool in your art marketing arsenal. It is affordable, easy and efficient. The rise of consumers buying directly from the source gives it greater power.
As the 21st Century has evolved, so has the way we all shop — we buy online, including how we find and purchase art. Today’s art buyer is as likely to be influenced by messages received digitally from trusted sources as nearly anything save word of mouth.
Artists use social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram to develop followers and awareness for their work. While these websites and others provide all kinds of benefits to artists, they also share a common bond — it is their platform. It is their rules. For the most part, you are not a customer; you are a user. In a sense, you are a digital sharecropper toiling to bring traffic to their sites.
You Own Your Email Marketing. Use It for Your Best Art Marketing Results.
You own your list. No one can take it away from you. No one can stop you from using it. An active, responsive email marketing list is a bottom line asset.
With your email marketing, you control every aspect of how it works. You can send on a schedule best suited for your needs. You can build a vast list of subscribers whose interest and support can help you promote and sell your work without assistance from anywhere or anyone else. The only thing stopping you from using email marketing to grow your art business and solidify your art career is your willingness to make it happen.
