186: Pricing Your Art: Prestige Versus Charm Pricing with Miriam Schulman

with host artist Miriam Schulman

How much would you say your art is worth? Turning your art into a fulfilling business that does more than barely get you from one month to the next, is a business skill worth learning.

There’s no need to live like a starving artist when you can use your creativity, develop skills, and start thriving in ways you never thought possible.

Understanding the psychology behind pricing and consumer behavior is one part of how artists go from amateur to professional.

“Which part of the brain do you want your customers to be using when buying art?” -Miriam Schulman

In this podcast, you will discover…

Pricing strategies for your business:

  • Charm or prestige pricing
  • Rounded pricing
  • What dollar signs and decimals say about your art
  • How to use pricing to communicate experience over transactions

This topic is one of the lessons from my forthcoming book Artpreneur. In this episode, you’ll discover how to price your art to grow a lucrative business.

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 or become better artists. 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, Artpreneur, on how to make it as an artist is scheduled for release in February 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. I’d love to invite you to check out one of my free resources for art lovers (of every passion level) at schulmanart.com/freebies
