From building credibility to showcasing your work and connecting with potential buyers, having a website is crucial in today’s digital world. You can share your story on your website, and that’s the best way to present yourself as a professional artist while showcasing your artistic brand.

Websites facilitate networking and collaboration allowing artists to eliminate the middleman, and sell directly to buyers.

A professionally designed website enhances your credibility as an artist and shows that you take your career seriously. – Miriam Schulman

Having a website gives you complete control over your content, your branding, and your artistic vision. – Miriam Schulman

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.

Listener shout out of the week!

This book is so helpful – it offers all the specific nuts and bolts needed to build and grow a business within a framework that is general enough to apply to a wide range of artistic or creative endeavors. The principles could also apply to a non-creative/artistic business, but what makes it especially useful for artists is the bridge the author builds for those of us who think of creative skills existing in a different hemisphere from business savvy.
