Today I came across this innovative challenge hosted by artist, Leslie Saeta. Here's the back story in Saeta's own words:
"Welcome to the 30 Marketing Ideas in 30 Days Challenge. Every day I will post a marketing task for you to complete. Each one shouldn't take more than half an hour and by completing all of them in the next 30 days you will have done a lot to promote your art! Don't forget that there is only one rule for this challenge and that is to HAVE FUN! If you miss a day then don't sweat it. Just have fun and complete as many as you can." (The Challenge began May 1.)
To date, there are over 300 artists participating in the Challenge. That means by the end of May, over 10,000 marketing ideas will be generated by this Challenge.
Here's more information about Saeta:
"Leslie Saeta is an award winning artist who paints fresh and colorful paintings using only a palette knife. She paints in her studio full time and has over 30 years of marketing experience."
"In addition to painting, she is devoted to helping other artists sell their art, especially online. She hosts a weekly talk radio show titled Artists Helping Artists which is a great resource tool for all artists. The show is currently listened to by over 5000 artists per week."
