Hi, I'm Brooke Glaser, a full-time freelance illustrator. I have built a business that supports me comfortably and gives me the freedom to work where and when I choose. But it didn't start like that. It took me years to learn these lessons, but when I finally understood them, I started to see huge growth in my business. This is a fun, practical and complete guide to making money as an artist. You don't have to be an expert at everything, but it really helps to understand how different parts of your business affect each other. First, we'll start by clarifying what your dream business looks like: figuring out what you want your life to be like and combining it with the different types of work artists can do. Then we dive into understanding why people buy from you and how you can use the strengths you ALREADY HAVE to stand out from the crowd. We'll cover setting goals, staying motivated, and creating systems to keep your business running smoothly. In the second section, we'll talk about where you can find clients and tips for sharing your work with the right people. In the third section, we'll dive into discovering different ways to maximize your money and effort, how to price your work, contract details, and negotiating tips. If you are starting your first art business, this is the class for you. And if you've been in business for a few years now, but feel like you're not sure where you're going, I hope this class can help you clarify where you should focus your efforts. Special thanks to Zeke's Lunchbox and Furry Little Peach for allowing me to use them as examples in the branding lesson. And thanks to Daniel Berg-Johnsen for his help filming the intro. I also share my favorite art tips, tutorials, and other resources for artists via email. You join here.
