088: Don’t Stay Quiet with Amy Porterfield

with host artist Miriam Schulman

Today, Amy Porterfield joins me and we’re talking all about marketing your art. Now if you’ve been listening to this podcast for a while, you know that I always preach that the 2 best ways to sell your art are in person and through e-mail. With many in-person art festivals getting cancelled, your online marketing efforts, particularly your e-mail efforts, are more important than ever!


In this podcast, you will discover…

  • Why it’s a mistake to stay quiet during this time (or any time).
  • Why there’s never been a better time to build your art business (yes, artists can thrive even in turbulent times).
  • How an email list adds job security to your business.
  • And finally we’ll talk about how to “procrastination proof” your marketing.

About the host, Miriam Schulman

In case we haven’t met yet, I’m an artist and founder of The Inspiration Place, where I help other artists learn how to profit from their passion. Through online classes, business coaching programs, and a top-ranked podcast, I’ve helped thousands of artists around the world develop their skill sets and create more time and freedom to do what they love. My signature coaching program, The Artist Incubator, helps artists go from so-so sales to sold-out collections.

A graduate of Dartmouth College and M.I.T, I initially pursued finance but after witnessing 9/11, I abandoned a lucrative hedge fund job to work on my art full time. Since then, my art and my story have been featured in major publications including Forbes, The New York Times, Art of Man, Art Journaling magazine as well as featured on NBC’s “Parenthood” and the Amazon series “Hunters” with Al Pacino. My forthcoming book with HarperCollins Leadership on how to make it as an artist is scheduled to be released January 31, 2023. When I’m not in the studio, you can find me hanging out with my husband, adult kids, and a tuxedo cat named Ebony.
