Morrison Leads Artists to Cash
Canvas Paper and Stone Gallery collaborates with marketing guru, Andrew Morrison, CEO of Small Business Camp, to present a special strategic marketing workshop for artists.
What is special about me as an artist? How do I position my art as having value while maximizing sales? How do I manage my time to achieve my greatest creativity? These are some of the questions that will be addressed as Canvas Paper and Stone Gallery collaborates with marketing guru, Andrew Morrison, CEO of Small Business Camp. Together, they will work with visual artists to enhance their business and marketing skills while boosting their creative capital.
Morrison writes: “Once you begin to repackage your business with certain brand attributes, you allow your clients to get to know you, and also buy from you — which in turn leads to your becoming more successful.”
Gallery Director, Averlyn Archer adds, “While our artists are amazingly talented, like most of us, they are not able to give the business end of their art much attention. This workshop will introduce tools and strategies that they can immediately implement to improve their businesses, and by extension, their lives. As both an art collector and gallery owner, any applications which improve the lives of our artists, complements the work that we do with them.”
Andrew Morrison is the founder of Small Business Camp - an entrepreneurial training, coaching and marketing firm. The company delivers an intensive two-day program that allows the participants to walk-in with just an idea and leave with a marketing plan, public relations strategy, money-making website, direct-mail campaign and 90 days of follow-up coaching.
