Why is a vision important for a small business? Because it forces you to really know your ambitions for your business. A vision can’t be vague. It declares the outcomes you expect and becomes a guiding light that will lead your business forward. So make sure your vision statement clearly states the outcomes you intend to create.

Selling original art online is exhilarating.
Earning money from doing something you love is everyone’s dream.
In this day and age artists have the opportunity to sell their crafts online to people around the world.
You can do it all yourself.
You can build a website, market yourself as an artist, promote your art, collect payments securely online and package and ship your products to your art collectors.
You can do all of this at a low-cost because you will be doing the majority of the work.
You will not have to pay a Gallery’s commission when your art sells or pay a fee for an agent to promote your fine art.
But the problem many artists encounter when they first start to sell fine art online is that they do not have a clear vision of what they want which makes it impossible for them to create productive strategies.
Take a few minutes today to write an artist Facebook vision statement so you can be more productive with your time
What Is A Vision Statement
Vision statements help to describe the organization’s purpose. Vision statements also include the organization values. Vision statements give direction for employee behavior and help provide inspiration. Strategic plans may require a marketing strategy, which could include the vision statement to also help inspire consumers to work with the organization. (Source: Madison Hawthorne)

How To Write Your Facebook Business Page Vision Statement
A vision statement could be a few sentences or a few paragraphs. It should be memorable by you and anyone that is working for you. Most artists do not have anyone that works for them. If you do have employees that work for you, make sure that you go over your vision with them.
The first step is to define what your core values of your art business are.
Ask yourself these following questions:
- How can your Facebook fan page support your core values for the present and the future?
- What will be your core values in five years and ten years?
- How will your Facebook fan page support the changes?
- What do you hope to achieve in ten years?
Tips For Writing Your Facebook Vision Statement
- Dream big; dreams come true if you have them
- Stay positive
- Believe in your dreams
- Where would you like to be in ten years
- What would you like to be known for a hundred years from now
- Be passionate about your vision statement
- Visualize how your business will be
- Visualize how you will feel when you reach your goals
The last step is to start writing down your thoughts.
Once you have your core values written down start writing a few sentences that best describe your vision and core values.
Keep rewriting what you have until you have a sentence or two that you are happy and proud of.
Place your Facebook vision statement somewhere you will be able to see every day. This will help you to stay on track with your Facebook marketing.
