I keep Tweetdeck up all day and receive notices of any mentions. Some artists, art orgs and galleries share my links. When I receive a mention on Twitter I make sure that I retweet. If you’d like a retweet then share one of my links below.

On Google+ it is easy to share links and  +1.   I reblog on Tumblr whenever the option is available, to help share the artwork of artists. On Pinterest I pin to my own boards and to other boards I’ve been invited to pin to, such as one for the literary and art journal Meat For Tea.  Send a good quality jpeg of one of your art images and I will upload it to Pinterest and pin it to one of my boards. Be sure to let me know the title and medium of the artwork. Send it to MarieKazalia@gmail.com (leave a comment here to let me know that you’ve sent it).

Leave your links in a comment on this blog post, and I will copy and paste them into a tweet and share on Google+. You can leave your website link, portfolio link, Facebook fan page link, Tumblr blog link etc, but be sure to also leave a descriptive line. (No one will click on a shared link unless they know something about what it links to.)

I forget to ask artists for testimonials. So, I am always pleased when an artist spontaneously decides to send one. Yesterday, I received this unsolicited testimonial–just sharing an excerpt here:

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

Artists Ask: Where can I find info on how to submit my artwork to art licensing companies?

I frequently post Calls for Artists to Submit on this blog. Two days ago, I posted information about a fine art publishing company that is currently accepting submissions from artists.

Artists asked—How do I submit? Where can I find info on how to submit my artwork to art licensing companies?

Yes, you are on the right track by asking questions!  Art licensing companies receive many submissions daily. It is important to make a professional looking submission. Why? If an artist submission is sloppy the company representative reviewing submissions may deleted it!  Yes, this is true. In your art licensing submission it is important that specific words are used, or your submission may be deleted. Why? Because professionals in this industry do not have a lot of time to educate artists. It is up to the artist to find out the correct approach before contacting the companies about their artwork.

You will find information on the correct ways to make submissions in my ebook the Transmedia Artist Guide to Making Artist Submissions.  The ebook format gives artists immediate access to the information they need.

Visual artists, the Transmedia Artist Guide to Making Artist Submissions contains tips, 100’s of resource links, and cover letters for you to adapt and use for making your own submissions, in any media, to get your art viewed by art licensing company reps, fine art publishers, art gallerists, museum curators, corporate art consultants, and others in positions to help you take the next step up in your art career. Artists use the information in this book to create their own opportunities and  income streams that will support your art-making practice.

The sample letters in this ebook are based on actual letters used to obtain solo exhibitions, lucrative art licensing contracts, representation with top artist agencies, and contracts for lucrative Giclee print sales internationally. Adapt and use the cover letters in this ebook to make your own submissions.

Artist Guide to Making More Opportunities Work For You

One question ArtstyShark asked, but that didn’t make it into the ArtsyShark article (http://bit.ly/ArtSharkArticle) due to length–so I’m sharing here:

AS:  What in your opinion are the biggest misconceptions artists have about the submission process?

MK: Most beginner and emerging artists wait for and respond to Calls for Submissions from various arts organizations.  Many artists subscribe to submission lists, to scan over annual calls and fee based ops, putting their only research efforts into this one market segment.  It’s like waiting in line for one thing, while a multitude of opportunities pass you by. There are hundreds, even thousands, of options out there for making artist submissions! Many artists just don’t know the endless possibilities that exist. My ebook is an eye-opener.

But I don’t just talk theory in my ebook. My ebook is a true How-To guide for artists.  In simple steps, I show artists how to put themselves out there to find their markets and create their own opportunities. My ebook covers everything an artist needs to know to get started marketing and promoting their art,  including presentation tools and know-how, insider tips on what words to use to get a gallerist’s attention, and *must use* words for obtaining print contracts. In my ebook I provide cover letters for artists to adapt and use for contacting gallerists, art consultants, and other arts professionals. Then I recommend a submission campaign action plan in a simple weekly framework, and even provide direct links to arts professionals. The links in my ebook alone will save any artist hundreds of hours of research! There are even links to lists of art industry contacts, such as a link to a list of hundreds of companies that need art for CD inserts, and a link to my offer to access my share list the Directory of Art Consultants –a list of 500+ live-linked contacts. In my ebook I share from my experiences, to save artists hundreds of hours (months! years!) of time wasted on trial and error efforts. My ebook is a DIY kit for visual artists to accelerate their art careers. I make this kit available as an ebook to reach artists across a variety of formats, including Kindle, Sony Reader, PDF and several other file forms and reading options.
