Discover How to Bulletproof Your Art Career
I write about common art career frustrations on my art business blog. How many hit home with you?
- You feel like your art marketing plans and programs take up too much time and produce too little results?
- You have a pretty good career going, but you don’t know what art marketing tools to use to keep it growing and take it to the next level.
- You sometimes fear you are going to be stuck in your soul sucking day job forever, or worry it could abruptly end because of circumstances beyond your control.
- You find the online marketplace so competitive and crowded it seems impossible to believe any amount of art marketing will help you succeed there.
- You have hit the wall trying to get into galleries, or you are not getting sales from those that show your work.
If you have had doubts that no matter how hard you might try that your chances of leaving a powerful legacy, becoming wealthy and well-known, or having your art be instrumental in helping a cause dear to your heart, or building the dream career you so desperately want is all beyond your grasp, they are normal. Feeling like these are far more typical than you might imagine. Even the most successful artists sometimes secretly feel unworthy. Or, like their art isn’t any better, or even as good, as many unknown contemporaries. What most of them have discovered is effective art marketing is a wonderful remedy to conquer art career worries.
It is time to banish your doubts and seize control of your art career!
The reason for your frustrated efforts is not a lack of willpower, it’s not gullibility, and it’s not a moral failing on your part. The heart of your problems are simple. You just have not had the right art marketing tools, and the knowledge to use and leverage them properly. They don’t teach practical career advice like this in art schools because they just don’t know how.

I took action to help artists because I have invaluable art marketing experience and knowledge to share. For years, I have watched so many visual artists struggle. They worried about lackluster sales, lost recognition, and feeling trapped by conditions that kept them from realizing their art career ambitions. It is why I wrote Guerrilla Marketing for Artists: Learn How 100 Collectors Can Bulletproof Your Art Career. t wanted to give artists like you a believable way to seize control of your career permanently. This book is a result of all the art marketing wisdom I have gained from helping artists with their art marketing for 25 years.
Today’s art market offers opportunities for artists who see and use them.
With the way the art market works today, you can build a bulletproof career designed around what you decide is important. The tools, tips and techniques in my Guerrilla Marketing for Artists: Learn How 100 Collectors Can Bulletproof Your Art Career book show you how to:

Gaining 100 Collectors
Guerrilla Marketing for Artists: Learn How 100 Collectors Can Bulletproof Your Art Career shows artists how they can get control of their careers. By using simple and effective networking and art marketing techniques, they can systematically build a solid base of collectors who buy directly from them.
If during the course of a lifetime an artist establishes ongoing, fulfilling relationships with his or her collectors and amasses somewhere in the range of 100 collectors, an artist potentially can sell a third or more of their original work to them.
Immunize Your Art Career Success
By having these close personal bonds with patrons, artists become much more immune to the effects of a bad economy or if other distribution systems falter. In other words, galleries may come and go, social media platforms may lose their luster and other channels of selling work may dry up altogether. Meanwhile, those artists who have built direct buying sales connections with collectors who love them and their work will be the ones who continue to thrive in hard times and will lead the pack in the good times.

Guerrilla Marketing for Artists is without any question, the best contemporary resource, or, if you will, the best resource-period, the best tool, for any artist at any level.

Get the Most Bang for Your Buck from Your Marketing Efforts
Throughout nearly 30 years in the advertising, marketing and tradeshow business, with decades alone in the art business, I have futilely watched as artists, publishers and other marketers threw away their money on one-shot marketing and advertising opportunities. You cannot afford to market that way. To make your marketing work, you need to have your messages touch your art buyers 7 – 10 times, or more. The messages need to be timed to hit over a specified period, never just because something new, shiny and ultimately ineffective comes along. Readers will learn how to synergize their art marketing. Just like guerrillas never fight wars, you make each piece of your marketing a targeted skirmish. By knowing when your marketing will hit and where it will hit and why you have chosen a certain target or project, you can make everything you do add-on top of the earlier message. And, because you give yourself ample lead time on every aspect of your marketing, you can plan and plot to get it done in easy, small steps.
The success you want from your art career is 100% unique to you.
There is no cookie cutter solution to what makes up a successful art career. If you have floundered due to confusion about what to do, or trying to follow someone else’s convoluted theory of how to succeed as an artist, it’s no wonder you are frustrated. What you need is the ability to sum up what is best for you, what will work best to help you get what is best for you, and how to go about implementing the right tools and techniques to achieve your dreams. The truth is, though, every great accomplishment involves a learning curve, experimentation, “uncomfortable feedback”, and refinement of your process. Sometimes that’s just not obvious to us. Sometimes we think others were just born with a magic “entrepreneurial art marketing lobe” of their brain…they weren’t.
At one time, every artist started right where you are now.
There’s no reason holding you back from the same kind of success that others enjoy. And, there’s even better news: you can enjoy that success faster, better, and easier than those who came before you. Because now, the Guerrilla Marketing for Artists book clears the jungle path ahead of you. It gives you the leading “what’s working now” tactics you need, and most importantly… Helps you avoid the dangers and pitfalls along your path.
