Ronnie Walter talks about art licensingWhat a great call to start off 2014!  Ronnie Walter never fails to make me laugh… and not only did she keep up her record on that end, she also shared a lot of great advice and insights about the business of art licensing. Were you one of the 70+ artists on the line listening live?

If you listen to the free audio replay, you will rethink your aspirations of being a Diva, you will get some great advice about connecting with new clients and if you are like me – you will be finding a cute basket to hold all of your creative ideas in one place! (WHY didn’t I think of that before?? Genius!)  Those are just a few highlights – trust me, it’s worth a listen.  🙂

Here is what we covered on the call:

  • Is art licensing more of an “on the side” stream of income?
  • How do you divide your time, percentage wise, between creating, marketing, and updating the website and social media?
  • What do you see as the biggest mistakes artists are making when trying to get into art licensing?
  • Are you and Jim seeing more flat fee licensing deals? What are your thoughts on Flat fee licensing?
  • When you submit your work simultaneously to different clients, how do you make a deal if more than one is interested a few weeks apart?
  • Can you give us a sample on how you do your “cold calling”?
  • What do you find to be the most flexible and in-flexible parts you can negotiate in a contract?
  • For artists just starting out and have no impressive list of clients/projects, what suggestions do you have for them so that they are not looked over/ignored by agents?
  • Ronnie’s Five Things to Forget About in Art Licensing
