Do you struggle with the tedious business side of things?
I am here to help!
Do these questions cause you consternation and dismay:
Let's work together to make sense of these and many of the other business-based challenges you may be stuck with. You know, the stuff that gets in the way of making the art.
Do you want to sell or promote your art, craft or photography online but struggle with the business side of things? Does the admin make you anxious? Do you keep putting off getting yourself set-up online because the process sounds so utterly boring? Then, yes, it's for you!
If you are tired of doing it alone, I am here to provide clear, concise guidance:
So many platforms, so many options, so much admin. How to plan and structure your online sales channels.
Stop it with the endless notebooks. Simple techniques for getting organised and staying that way.
Social Media rules our lives. But, with a bit of patience and planning, you can get it under control.
Art fairs, galleries, online displays. Don't just whack a bit of blu-tac on the back and stick it to the wall.
To t-shirt or not to t-shirt? Mugs? Bookmarks? Are mousemats still a thing? Prints, products and the perks of printshops.
How to keep your customers and get them coming back for more. People can be scary, but not if you are prepared.
Together we will create sensible, easy processes so you can focus on creating your art rather than getting bogged down in the business side of things.
Already selling or promoting your art online but want some help or guidance to improve with any of the areas above?
Then, yes, this is still for you.
Hi! I’m Robert, I’ve been working in marketing and technology for over 20 years. I’ve run a successful small business that whole time, at one point alongside a record label. A large part of my career for the last 10 years has been working as an e-commerce consultant, helping businesses of varying sizes to get their products online and their marketing in place. I’ve worked on marketing campaigns for businesses from small one-person local organisations, to large multinationals.
Much of my work consists of taking complex processes and breaking them down into manageable, easy to deal with chunks, and putting structures in place to allow non-technical people to deal with them easily.
I have an in-depth knowledge of e-commerce, social media marketing and how to talk to people about technical things in a manner they understand.
I also sell my own art and photography.
In short: I’ve spent my life dealing with complicated, boring tech stuff, and creating art.
A personalised programme to help you work through the areas you are struggling with. I will provide guidance, advice, structure and research where needed and give you clear processes to allow you to focus on what’s important and how best to earn from your art.
You get access to 25 years experience in technology, business, e-commerce, marketing art and photography. Someone to keep an eye on your progress, motivate and encourage you to keep pushing for your goals. I also make really good tea, and really bad jokes.
PLUS, a more organised life, more time to work on your art, less anxiety.
I will (metaphorically) hold your hand and guide you through the boring, tough stuff so you can get back to creating the art that you love.
We have a free initial call or meeting lasting 30-45 minutes (location and global pandemic situation allowing) to identify:
If I feel I can help, we then arrange regular calls or meetings at whatever interval suits you.
We will work together on a plan to get you to where you want to be by identifying areas you are struggling and putting together clear, achievable plans to move you forwards. I'll continue to be on hand as you work through each step to provide support and further advice.
The end goal is to make you as efficient and self-sufficient as possible to give you more time for creating art and increase your art-based income.
45 minute initial call/meeting FREE to ascertain if we are a good fit and I feel I can help you.
