www.artbizblog.com – Marketing & Business Resource to Artists


Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook – all these sites I keep emphasizing are becoming great resources to promote business and network. As I come across blogs or other useful resources I’ll be adding them here to pass along the knowledge to our readers.

One of my recent “Twitter Finds” is Alyson B. Stanfield – business and marketing consultant to artists. As an author, consultant, blogger, etc. she provides skills that quite frankly many artists lack! Check out here website: http://www.artbizcoach.com/ for more information. An extract for her bio is below!

“This is the greatest job ever! I completely enjoyed my ten years working in art museums, but this is way cooler. I began consulting with artists informally in the early 1990s as part of my position as a museum curator. When I left museums, my old artist-friends continued coming to me for help and advice. Everyone wanted an agent! A little research into that field led me to conclude that I wouldn’t be doing artists any favors by doing all of the work for them. Instead, I decided to teach them how. You know the Chinese proverb: Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.”  – Alyson B. Stanfield.

Oh – and BTW – I couldn’t resist chiming in on one of her blog entries – “Tips for Survival as an Artist–from Michael Shane Neal: Part 1.”  Yes – go figure me “Eric” … couldn’t resist opening my mouth; yeah I know that’s just so out of character. The link is below if you’re curious what I had to say.
