In the art world, it’s not enough to just produce art – you have to promote your art too. If your work isn’t out there and people don’t know of you, then you will have a harder time reaching your audience and commissioning your work. Some artists are great at promoting themselves, but for others, working with an art consultant is necessary for their careers. Art consultants come with a vast trove of knowledge and experience that’s been cultivated over years of working in art. If you’re an aspiring artist that’s keen to make yourself known in the art world, here’s how hiring an art consultant can help you navigate the intricacies of the art market.
Art consultants help grow your network
Art consultancy firms are extremely well-connected, with an ever-growing list of art enthusiasts who may be interested in commissioning art and stay on trend with the art industry. This means that you will be getting your foot in the door a lot quicker than if you didn’t hire an art consultant. Many art consultants also work with agencies and galleries such as the Mall Galleries for contemporary art in London and help put together exhibitions that effectively promote artists’ work.
They understand the world of art from a marketing stance
In the art world, it is crucial to build a reputation and make yourself known in the industry. First impressions matter and the internet is a very important stop for online buyers and so you will need to ensure that everything is professional and on point. An art consultant can show you how to effectively market yourself online through assisting you with website development, blogging and social media. A key aspect of an art consultant’s job is to build relationships in the industry and they are so well-connected that they can connect you to their online contacts and to other bloggers, which builds up links and ensures that you get visits and social shares from your target audience. They know the strategies that work and can advise you on how to become an artistic success through marketing.
They Are A Valuable Resource For Projects
Managing your art collection should never be daunting and art consultants are there to simplify the entire process for you. They have a wealth of experience in managing large projects and can save you a lot of time in the process. Their services include budgeting, tracking down art and negotiating with galleries, and top of this – they rarely require additional fees.
Art Advisors Help You Protect Your Art Collection
Art consultants can take over the nitty-gritties such as the shipping of art, art framing, insurance and sales tax. They know how to expertly handle these aspects of your art collection and this will go a long way in protecting your art.
