No one likes to fail. But the truth is that there is a learning curve that goes along with trying something you have never done before. Failing is learning. Learning is winning. If you are interested in increasing art sales, you will need to be willing to try new things. In this article, you will discover how you will increase online art sales by failing.
If you want something new, you will have to try something new. Some ideas will work, and some ideas will not work. The ideas that did not work does not mean that you have failed. What it means is that you will need to put more effort on what you would like to improve.
Increase Online Art Sales By Failing
What is a common difference between people that succeed and people that do not succeed? The people that succeed are not afraid of learning new things. They understand that when they are trying something new, there will be a learning process. You’ve heard the saying, “If at first, you don’t succeed, try, try again.”
Let’s take drawing for example. I have heard over and over again ‘I cannot even draw a stick figure.” People might struggle with drawing stick figures but what does that mean. It means that they have not put in the time to be able to learn how to draw a stick figure, an apple, a house or whatever they would like to draw.
If they wanted to draw a house, there would be skills that they would need to learn before they could draw a house. They would need to learn how to control a pencil, learn about perspective, learn about light, learn how to see negative space, and learn how to see soft value changes.
You can see by the drawing example above that there is a lot of learning that is involved with anything that we do. So if a person would like to draw a house, they would need to spend the time necessary to improve all of the skills required to draw a house. If a person would like to ride a bike, they would have to learn the skill to ride a bike and not fall. If someone would like to sell art, they would need to learn everything that is involved with business and marketing.
Failure Should Be Expected
So many people feel that failure is bad, but we should look at failing as a positive. You will increase art sales by failing. Why? Because everytime that you have failed you have tried something new. Every time that you try something new you are enhancing your skills. While you are improving your skills, you are learning how to make better decisions. When you can make better decisions, you will increase the odds of selling more art.
You can increase art sales by failing. Instead of being afraid of failing, be excited about learning. If you try something new, and it does not give you the results you were looking for, try again. Little adjustments are often all it takes. If something is working, keep at it. Go full force and do not look back. If something is not working, try something different. Put all of your energy into learning and what is already working. Learning is not failing, learning is growing.
