with host artist Miriam Schulman
This Friday round up episode has 5 great tips to help you sell more art. No more starving artists here! Follow these simple steps to connecting with more customers and creating more sales.
In this podcast, you will discover…
Mind Your Body Language to Sell More Art
When you’re selling in person, body language matters. In fact, I think it matters even if you aren’t in person.
You don’t want to be the artist in the corner with your coffee. Plan to stand and project confidence and energy. Be mindful of the space that potential customers find comfortable, so they don’t feel like you’re hovering.
Be approachable and ready to connect.
Listen to Your Customers to Sell More Art
When talking to a customer, it’s hard not to interrupt. Don’t do it! Active listening will help you understand what’s important to them. You don’t need to convince anyone.
Feeling heard is going to mean much more to your customer. If selling more art is important to you, then pre-order a copy of Artpreneur and get the bonuses including the Artpreneur Affirmation Series.
Good Salespeople Versus Bad Salespeople
Bad salespeople feel like they have to convince. No one enjoys being talked at! Here’s what you can do instead. Draft some great questions to prompt conversations. You’ll sell more art, and people will truly enjoy talking to you too.
Why You Should Avoid Autoresponders on Social Media
Here’s why you should avoid autoresponders on social media. Bots and automation are not helpful. People who want to engage with you on social are looking for human interaction.
Nothing turns off a prospect faster than an automated response. When you respond, ask permission to take the next step. You don’t have to share everything in one long message. Allow the conversation to evolve naturally.
A Powerful Tip to Sell More Art
What’s in a name? Personalize your interactions and introduce yourself. It’s going to help spark conversations, and you’ll be much more likely to make a memorable impression. Be unforgettable and personable and you’ll sell more art.

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.
After witnessing 9/11, I abandoned a lucrative hedge fund job to work on my art full time. Since then, my art and story have been featured in major publications including Forbes, What Women Create, 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. Check out my best-selling book with HarperCollins Leadership, Artpreneur, how to make money from your creativity, wherever books are sold. When I’m not in the studio, I split my time between New York City and a farmhouse in the country.
