"Be in Business For Yourself - But Not By Yourself" - But what does it actually mean for you?

Hello there Artist Friends - here's a clichéd statement we use on our website 
"Be in Business For Yourself - But Not By Yourself"

But what does it actually mean for you, the artist - who spends most of her time in glorious isolation! "Be in Business For Yourself" is more than just an inspiring slogan for us; it's a way of life. When you work for yourself, the sky is the limit! You can set your own hours, wear whatever you want and have complete control over everything that happens in your studio/business! 
A lot of artists are scared and confused about how to market themselves. They often end up doing nothing, or paying a fortune for people who don't know what they're doing. We are artists - so we understand artists! 

The fact is, that if you want to make money from your art, there's no better way than getting out there, creating a huge following on social media and sharing your work with them! 
But it can be hard to get started and stay motivated... 
If you're an artist, this is your chance. Be in business for yourself by selling your original art on our website! No need to hunt down galleries or negotiate with curators - we'll partner with you to find the buyers and collectors. 
All you have to do is make great artwork and upload it onto your very own online art gallery page at ArterNet Art! And be prepared to do some marketing work.

We help artists reach their potential by providing the tools they need (like our platform), but also by encouraging them through 
  • step by step guides on marketing on social media, 
  • by having established artists as mentors to our members. 
  • Most artists don't have the time or energy to do this themselves. It's difficult for an artist to keep up with all the changes on social media, let alone find ways to use it effectively. 
    No one likes to be told what to do. You might even get a bit irritated when you hear someone say 'just do it.' We feel the same way, which is why we're not going to tell you what business ideas are best for you. We're here to offer support and guidance based on years of experience being in business per se and being in the art industry- that's our job. 
    ArterNet Art is here for you!😊
    We're building a community (and this is hugely important to us) of art professionals from around the world - painters, sculptors, photographers and more - sharing ideas about how we can best promote our work online. Our mentors will be professional business people (not hobbyists) who want to make sure you get paid what you deserve for your work. 
So take this as your friendly reminder: find out what YOU want from running a creative business, figure out how much time and money you have available, then start brainstorming with yourself.
About our blog series. We interview established and well known artists of the day.

As artists, we love these rare insights into other artists lives. Reading their stories helps us with our own daily challenges - to know others have had their trials and have succeeded, is very uplifting.

The culture of our company here at ArterNet Art - ANA, is to put a human face to all our members and guest artists. Part of our approach is to give our artist members the opportunity to meet recognised artists - to learn more about how they became the well-known artist we see today. 


Did you know that for around a dollar per day - 

you can have your OWN online art gallery - 

where you won't pay any commission on your art sales!
