Over the past twenty-five years, I have watched people grow and succeed while others just dream that they were successful. I have instructed and coached thousands of guitar and bass students over the years. In this article, you will discover how prioritizing will increase art sales. These are some of the same strategies I use with my guitar students and artists dreaming of making a career out of what they love doing.
There are the same number of hours in a day for all of us. There are the same resources available to all of our thanks to the Internet. The only difference between living the dream and dreamers are self-motivated and the ability to prioritize.
In future articles, I go into more detail about motivation, but for now, I want to talk about prioritizing and making the most out of your time.
How Prioritizing Will Increase Art Sales
Before I go any further, I want you to know that this is a process that takes time. The more you plan your days, the more productive you will be with your time.
It is like anything that you do in life. At first, there is a learning curve after you have learned what is necessary to accomplish the task you will start to become more efficient with your efforts. What once took 60 minutes to achieve now only takes 45 minutes. That is over an hour that you have saved in a five-day work week.
What you have on your marketing schedule should generate income or build your audience for future sales. If the project does not generate a sale or build your audience, it is a waste of your time.
You need to address the areas that are not making you money and try a different strategy.
Every day you should have on your calendar or to-do list five things that will bring you closer to your dream. If you have a list of things that need to get done you will be saving time trying to remember what you need to do. You will reduce stress by not forgetting to do a job that was important.
At the end of the week assess the outcome of your marketing strategies. If something is working, put it on next week’s marketing schedule. If something did not work discard it and replace it with a different strategy.
By having a plan and creating a to-do list you will be more productive with your time. Prioritizing will increase art sales faster than not assessing your strategies.
