The second series of 4 classes Growing My Business, Selling More is perfect for creatives who want to move their business forward. It is important to understand the tools needed to promote a business as well as using demographics to identify a target audience.

ASN (Artists Support Network)

DUE TO COVID, ASNs ARE BEING CANCELED. PLEASE, FOLLOW US ON FACEBOOK TO STAY UP-DO-DATE ON MEETING CHANGES.

In an effort to provide artists and creatives with an environment of business support and coaching, The WC hosts (Artists Support Network) open sessions the 2nd Wednesday (6:30 – 8:00pm) every month at Full Circle Book Cooperative. This is a place to come to network, pose a business challenge, and get help in finding a solution or just hang out with other like minded people. It is a safe place to talk about failures and rejoice in successes. Professionals will be invited to share their expertise in topics such as: grant writing, application completion, technology, social media and marketing.

We’ve had some great discussions from brainstorming ideas for the Creative Community Conclave, to identifing the demographics of potential customers and where to find them. We’ve even sorted through multiple business opportunities, prioritized them and planned the first steps to making the top one a reality. Each time we gather is a new experience. Artists are meeting other creatives and sharing ideas for selling more of their work. The topics have been fluid to fit those who are there.
Future discussion possibilities:
• Overcoming fear and procrastination
• Motivation, how to uncover it and use it to make things happen
• Art: passionate expression or commerce?
• Who will buy my work and getting in front of them?
