MARKETING & PROMOTING THE EXHIBITION: In addition to the
organisers' own marketing campaigns for this and all exhibitions, we
expect all exhibitors to promote that they are
exhibiting via social media and whatever other means possible. You will
all be sent by post a media pack including printed A5 flyers and A3 / A4
posters (available on request)
TIPS ON MARKETING FOR THE ARTIST EXHIBITORS Successful artists today need to undertake a sustained marketing programme to back up what the organisers do. This could include email, word of mouth, posters in shops, libraries and fences etc, printed biographies, distributing A5 handouts/flyers, utilising social media, Instagram, Facebook, LinkedIn etc, maybe your own websites, direct invites to prospects and plenty of lively creative noise to promote yourself as an artist and your appearance at this event. Customers interested in your work will find you by one or more of these methods and may then follow you and attend your exhibitions to meet you in person. It may take a while to secure this level of following but without making the effort how will potential customers ever find you? Do you have business cards to hand out? Is there a printed bio telling the world about YOU? Are your contact details on everything you produce? Want more help marketing? We can provide advice
This is a friendly collaberative art exhibition.
Apart from our cafe expert running the cafe area all other aspects of the exhibition are undertaken by the artists and their friends/family. That is in part how we keep costs down. There are no paid labourers or fitters, no expensive PR or advertising executives; we do everything ourselves as a team. If that doesn't suit you then you are really going to miss out on a great opportunity with us.
