From what you say on the phone, to how to write a compelling query letter or email, you will find usable information to help you find an agent that is a good fit for your business.  This eBook was not written from a single perspective, though.  We have sought the opinions and thoughts from artists, agents and manufacturers to ensure you get the best information possible.

Thirteen agents offer their perspectives and contact information in this book.  You will quickly see that not all agents work or think in the same way.  Perhaps one of these agents will look like a potential fit, or maybe you will look at other options as well.  There are questions to ask, specifics to consider and ways to keep it all organized.

Manufacturers offer their thoughts on using and working with an agent, and their information has been woven into the content of the book.

The combination of all of these perspectives will give you great food for thought and a road map to preparing for and finding an agent.

NOTE:  Keep in mind that finding an agent doesn’t mean you don’t have to know anything about the business of art licensing.  Agents want artists who understand the business, that their art needs to be relevant and relatable for the end-use consumer, and that it must work on the products.

This eBook is for . . . Artists, Illustrators and Photographers who. . .

  • Have decided that they want to focus on creating their art and have an agent to take care of the licensing side of the business.
  • Have heard about licensing agents, but are not sure what it entails or if they are qualified.
  • Have decided to pursue the path of using an agency, but need contacts and additional information to move forward.

What will this book do for you . . .

  • There are a lot of artists looking for agents, so you need to get your “ducks in a row.”  You will learn how to present yourself as a professional who understands the basics of art licensing.
  • Help you understand how to interview agents and make sure they are a good fit for you, your art and your business.  Every agency/agent works a little differently, so getting the right one is critical to your business.
  • Help you understand what to look for in an agency contract.  As this is an important decision for you, don’t rush to sign a contract you don’t fully understand.  An exclusive contract with an agent has a big impact on your business, and you need to be sure you understand what you are agreeing to do.

Are you ready?

For only $67 you can learn more about this unique relationship and decide if working with an art licensing agent is right for you.  This digital book can be yours immediately – simply download and enjoy on your computer, iPad, Kindle and more . . . anything that can read a pdf.

It was only five days from when I purchased your book, read your book, drafted an email and portfolio according to your suggestions, and then mailed the contacts you quoted in your book, that I received a reply and got an agent. I am very excited for this opportunity, and have you and your e-book to thank.  So, THANK YOU!

I want to give special high praise to this e-book.  What I gained most from it was that it really made you evaluate and think about your own strengths and goals to put your art out into the marketplace – agent or own your own.  Do you want to handle the business side, cold call, or just create art?  The Questionnaire included in the e-book was wonderful.  I can happily report that I did make the leap and submit to an agency, signed with them and I am happy with my decision!  Thanks for the invaluable source to artists looking to make that representation choice.  I highly recommend this e-book!

How To Find an Art Licensing Agent” has insightful information and I love how you have interviewed several different agents for their input.  That is the most valuable part of the e-book, I think; although, it’s ALL very helpful information and it’s hard to say what is the most valuable part!  Thank you again for seeking out and sharing your valuable knowledge with the rest of us!
