Boost your Art Career with Art Marketing in Naples and Online
The aim of East West Fine Art marketing efforts is to help local artists grow their art careers by facilitating the connection between artists and collectors. We achieve this by introducing collectors to artwork through:
(1) prominent Naples gallery location
(2) quarterly Art for Friends local artist exhibitions
(3) Artist Studios online art gallery
Artist Studios: A Smart Marketing Strategy for Boosting your Art Career
- Expose your art to East West Fine Art’s 20 year growing collector base. Selling art is the objective of our marketing efforts. We reach our goals by:
(1) generating leads with our Naples locations and our website,
(2) encouraging buyers and prospective art collectors to visit Artist Studios online to see our full inventory of art, and
(3) maintaining contact with clients and prospective leads through print, television, and email newsletters sent to 5,000 plus clients
- Achieve international recognition by the mere fact of being associated with our world-renowned gallery. We have over 20 years of experience and a solid reputation as a prime source of fine art.
- Become searchable – it is difficult to find individual artist studios, but easy to find our gallery. This way you will gain exposure to the whole world of art collectors.
- Learn from our professional advice and insider knowledge of the art market.
- Retain price flexibility of your artwork – it is up to you to set price and communicate directly to clients, without the gallery as a middleman.
- Maintain affordability of an artwork – galleries usually have 2x to 4x markup. Online mark-up is only 20%.
- Become a member of our “local artist club” who already work with us and learn from their experience.
- Complement you online sales with local artist exhibitions. Artists will have an opportunity to sell their art at our gallery one to 4 times annually – in the most professional atmosphere, with state-of-the-art lighting, and with the guidance of our professional consultants. The gallery arranges receptions and invites its own clients and media for these exhibitions. Our experience shows a great success of such exhibitions with up to 300 attendees, media coverage, and numerous sales!
