Creative Business Ideas For Visual Artist

Many creative business ideas can be fun to implement when in a highly competitive environment.

Especially in bigger cities with a bigger population, the art industry can be stagnant.

However, it would help if you controlled where your creations flourish.

Taking baby steps is the best way to solve some problems you might initially face.

These steps may not be a business template, but as a simple layout, then followed, it can give you great results.

Remember to keep it simple and maintain your unique style of artistic endeavors.

1.Write and map out your branding

It will be good for you to start by writing in pencil and tweaking it until it feels right until resonates with you as an artist, much like when you start on an art project.

Never mind the number of times you may have to rewrite; the important part is to start and, like a beta test, be prepared for trial and error until you find what works for you.

Think of a brand name or use your original name and make it stand out with a difference.

The privilege you have as an artist is that ideas come to you faster than they do to most people, so use that skill in your business ideas.

2. What are you selling?

This may seem obvious, but you may be surprised that selling art takes more than a pretty picture.

Your audience wants value in what your art represents, so make it a story they can relate to and connect emotionally.

It all says in the name of your creations. For example, the name Blush would naturally relate to women and femininity, or Gold Prosperity would relate to Feng Shui and good luck, which appeals greatly to Eastern culture.

Have an idea of how you would like to leverage your art? Will you paint the same style and sell your originals, or are your prints more likely to reach wide?

Selling original art can be overrated because you never know which basement it could end up in.

After all your hard work put into painting, be selective about who and how you sell your work.

3. How, where and who?

These are important questions, so having a plan in action is important, like with all other businesses.

Once you have your name and type of art product, you want to start selling, but how and where will you deliver this, and who are your fans?

If you have never sold your art or feel like this is an intimidating process, then start by giving it away for free, and that is how you test your market and responses.

Start making art for the people closest to you, and it will give you the confidence you need to exchange your product for money gradually.

In the meantime, you can take it further and build your fan base on social media by taking pictures of your art and getting yourself exposure.

You will find it pleasing to see your target market grow when people like what they see

4. Tips for getting money into your pocket

It can be costly for some to hire a professional photographer to showcase on your website or to sell on platforms like Contrado UK.

So the easiest thing to do for starters is to paint your creations on a smaller canvas and take it to your local printers, or if you have a good machine, then scan, upload, and print it in poster sizes.

You can work towards hiring a professional photographer later.

You may need your friends and family who are good with digital to help you with image resolution and color enhancement.

5. Grow as an individual and develop into an expert artist

Keep evolving your art and business, and utilize as many social media platforms that have video courses and tips.
