Surviving the 2020 Pandemic

Posted on July 19, 2020 at 11:15 PM

While 2020 has been a difficult year for artists with many art exhibits being cancelled, I seem to be doing pretty good!  Corona has not totally messed up my art business!  I even won $1,000 for Best of Show in the Art and Soul Juried Art Show!  Wow!

Since almost ALL of my art exhibits and venues were being cancelled one by one, I really had to find another marketing strategy.  My art business was about to come to a screeching halt if I didn't do something. 

So I decided to focus almost totally on online marketing, starting with Facebook and Instagram.  I had an Instagram account that had been sitting there for about a year with no new posts at all.  I didn't know what to do with it exactly.  So I signed up for an Instragram for Business course.  I learned a lot about Instagram too!  It was great.  A whole new world opened up for me!

I also got some books that explained more about Instagram and Facebook.  I had a feeling that there was a lot I didn't understand and there certainly was!  I did not know nearly as much about social media as I thought I did.  Could it be that I am finally getting caught up with the 21st Century?

I think some of this new knowledge that I was putting into practice was finally paying off because In July, I had a big breakthrough.  By doing some thoughtful marketing to look for ideal clients and tapping into a couple of Facebook pages that have huge audiences, I got over 10 orders for Rock Animal portrait commissions!   They seem to be a big hit with people right now.  I have completed almost all of the orders.  I also found an easy to understand way of getting payment from people online, thru Paypal invoices. 

So, in the midst of a pandemic that has almost ruined the economy and has shut down a lot of businesses, I adapted and switched my focus from live venues to online selling!  It was a tough fight, but I feel have won a victory!  I'm just hoping I can keep this online selling momentum up and get more online orders.

BTW, My Instagram account is and my Facebook account is

Have you ever wondered critical it is to practice? When trading the forex market is a very wise idea to use a Forex demo account. A lot of "demo" means practice. You'll find it means that you can use someone else's money figure out if the Forex works for you.
