I still remember – quite vividly! – just how nervous I was in December of 2008. Would anyone show up? Would I be talking to myself? Was this a good thing to do or a recipe for stress?  I was jumping outside of my comfort level to be sure and you know what?  It has paid off in spades!  Look at all the information we’ve shared, experts in the industry we have been able to hear from – all because of this Ask Call process I learned by taking the Teleseminar Secrets Class. (It starts again in January so if you want to learn more about it, go to www.TaraRecommendsAlex.com for details.)

Here is what we covered on the call:

  • Should my art licensing business be named as just my name?
  • Can I have a book agent AND a licensing agent at the same time?
  • Is there a general rule about color, across the industry?  RGB or CMYK?
  • I currently create art by hand, do you recommend I work digitally in the future?
  • Someone has shown interest in my designs thru LinkedIn!  Is the next step is to ask for a contract?
  • How do you avoid getting ripped off, especially overseas?
  • Making sure you stay in line with exclusive contracts that have non-compete clauses.
  • Are there many fine artists in licensing or is it more pattern design?
  • Should I exhibit at a show or market directly to manufacturers to get started?
  • How do you show your work at a trade show?
  • How important is moral support and where does one find it?
  • Do you have tips for coding or creating systems for your images so you can find them when a licensee wants to discuss them?

The audio replay is $15 through December 26th and $30 thereafter so grab your copy today! These audios are a great way to listen and learn while you are creating in your studio, driving in your car, walking your dog, whatever!
