Holiday Markets 101

How to Successfully Sell Your Art at Holiday Markets 
Steff Metal for Empty Easel

Facebook Twitter More...

The truth is, not everyone can afford to buy large pieces of art or craft for their loved ones, so it's critical to your success this season to offer a variety of price points.

1. Display both expensive and inexpensive work

Arrange smaller, more inexpensive items alongside your larger, more expensive pieces. These might include prints, greeting card sets, and smaller scale sculptures or wall hangings.

When I set up a stall, I like to choose 3-5 of my larger, more impressive pieces to attract people to the stall, and stock the rest with smaller items. Direct people interested in your larger pieces to a photograph book or your website.

Crafting Emails to Potential Event Sponsors

Crafting Emails to Potential Sponsors Which Get Replies
By Daniel Mendelson | Bizzaboo.com

Facebook Twitter More...

Don't expect to secure a deal just by writing an email alone. You're starting a conversation, not signing a deal.

So, as you write, keep in mind the end goal: beginning a conversation and ultimately scheduling a meeting to discuss the sponsorship opportunity.  The email should focus on value, be an articulation of shared objectives and audiences, and have a tone and language which elicits feelings of partnership.

Research 

It’s critical for constructing the most effective cold email to potential sponsors. First, find out everything you can about the sponsor’s company. Focus on values and marketing objectives. Then, think about how your event can further these values or objectives.

Visit Advanced Search to view all FestivalNet listings.

View Artist & Crafter Deadlines

View Musician & Performer Deadlines

View Food Vendor Deadlines

View Commercial Vendor Deadlines

To search All events in our database, go to FestivalNet.com.



This bimonthly Deadlines Reminder is a service of FestivalNet.com. Below are some common questions about this newsletter.

How often is the Deadlines Reminder updated?
The web page is updated daily and this reminder is sent to you by email twice a month (if you selected this list in your E-lists settings).

Why are events showing old dates?
We include these events to maximize your chances of finding a great show and not missing the deadline. When it comes to deadlines, they are usually around the same time each year, so the old information is usually very useful. We do not publish deadlines over two years old. FYI - We make an intensive effort every year to get event updates, but some sponsors simply won't respond to our many requests.

Do I need to join FN to see full contact details?
The basic info is free, but full contact details require paid Pro Member access. This is the service we provide. We work very hard to collect, research, edit, and compile detailed information on thousands of events.

FYI - There are helpful tips about sorting the data on the deadlines page! Just look for the question marks at the top of each column.

Good luck with your work!

Easy Art Publicity

How to Get Good Publicity for Your Art 
Nicole Wensel for Empty Easel

There are certainly the traditional routes (galleries, for example) but oftentimes those paths are strung with red tape—what if there was a more empowering way?

Here are a few suggestions for ways that you can begin to gain more exposure for your work through good press and publicity:

1. Build a dream press list

Think about where your potential fan base might "hang out" and keep an open mind.

Perhaps there are a few niche online magazines that would love to feature your story and/or a few of your pieces. Maybe there are more mainstream outlets as well that you could reach out to. Also consider podcasts as a great way to connect with your current and future fan base. What podcasts would the type of people who might connect with your creative work listen to?
