- “Being good in business is the most fascinating kind of Art” quote from Andy Warhol
Ever since our blog launched on February 3, 2009, it has been our goal to provide our artist readers with news and information they can use to enhance their art careers.
Artist Marketing Resources offers one or more feature full blog posts on our blog. Each post will include a text write-up, your promotional offer, one or more links to your website, your logo, 3-5 jpeg images of artwork and image gallery feature. (Blog posts are better than ads, because the posts stay up permanently and appear in Google searches.) Find out about options for artists and art professionals here.
Artist Marketing Resources currently has over 45,000 followers and subscribers, and all our feature blog posts auto-feed into and appear as a new discussion in our LinkedIN group, also named Artist Marketing Resources, which has nearly 3 thousand member artists and art professionals internationally.
We share all blog posts extensively via social media, including Facebook, Twitter (5 accounts with 8-18K followers each), on Google+ where I have the maximum numbers in my circle of nearly 3K artist, Digg, Stumble Upon, Tumblr, and Pinterest.

Thank you so much Marie.
Marie, thank you for your post about the Eastman Radio Project. I submitted and Marinella is including a podcast of my recent interview with Brainard Carey on Yale radio WYBC.
I can’t say it enough. I deeply appreciate your ongoing efforts to help artists!
Marie, thank you for your post about The Corner Magazine. Robert is going to publish some of my work.
Hope you had a good couple of days away from it all! We all should take computer breaks, but it’s getting tougher all the time.

|Dear Marie, a huge thank you for your generosity in sharing. Artist Marketing Resources has been, and it still is, a key tool for opportunities and networking. Thanks to your information, I applied and was selected for a group at the Tate Modern. It can’t get any better than that! Lorenzo Belenguer|
hi marie…i read your e-book and thus far it has helped me tremendously. (just recently got my work in an online magazine after YEARS of no publicity) I believe the issue will be released to the public and when it does, i’ll be sure to alert you. Thanks so much! now, I’m hoping to connect with curators in my area and ask that you “introduce” me to (name omitted) etc… artist, candace pryor

“Marie, I am very impressed by your persistently professional presence. I have visited a number of art marketing site and yours is the most transparent, responsive, and ‘cutting edge.’ It establishes a sense of trustworthiness that should be a key component of such a venture, but seems to be lacking in most. Thank you for your support of all us artists out here trying to find our way through the inundation of technological babble.” Artist, Susan Spaniol http://susanspaniolstudios.com/
Testimonial from William Montgomery (I worked with William in August and September and then he had a family emergency and took 6 months off after which we resumed working together:):”Before working with Marie Kazalia I had tried working with a few consultants costing thousands of dollars with absolutely no results. Of course I tried marketing my work personally as well, with no results either. Last Fall 2011 Marie was able to introduce me to a company in the UK who licensed 15 of my images for print on Canvas and archival paper. They are Art Consultants working globally. A week ago she was able to get me a deal with a New York company which licensed eleven of my latest pieces for distribution on canvas in two sizes in Australia, Italy and the US and they are working to establish a company in Great Britain as well. I modified the files so that I am able to continue marketing the originals without competition. She has sent out a little over 100 letters of introduction to art consultants and interior design companies here in the US and other countries. I know Marie works very hard at this for me because I find emails at all hours of the early morning to late evening with questions, check this or that, what do you think, etc. We maintain very close contact online and we are now starting to converse on the phone occasionally which really helps to clarify any issues at hand. All in all, I have found Marie to be extremely knowledgeable and is building new alliances all the time. She excels at web networking, so if you need marketing assistance I highly recommend her company.”
Artist Marketing Resources got a digital artist his first art licensing contract initially with the licensing of 12 of his image for fine art prints. Right away the artist had several sales from that contract. Just two months after signing his first ever art licensing contract with this fine art publisher, the artist wrote to me: “G. just called. He wants to license approximately 50-60 images from me now. He is working with about 5-6 other companies including Fab.com. He is going to print on bamboo and aluminum too. You did it!” Digital Artist, William Phelps Montgomery
Hi, Marie,I’ve gotten a lot of helpful information from your blog, which recently led me to join Artsia and Xanadu, along with lots of other helpful posts. So I am glad to support your web site and receive some promotion for my art as well. Chicago artist, Leon Sarantos http://www.leonsarantosartist.com
