Interview: Artist Who Just Sold $10,000+ Through Her Website In a Week During the Pandemic
Lifted up by the surging art market, artists and photographers who implement a basic marketing strategy are racking up Black Friday-level sales.
The virus has changed everything for photographers and artists. Namely – for the first time in history, 100% of the art market is online.
And demand is soaring.With millions working from home for the foreseeable future, forced to create new, productive workspaces, wall art has become a top-seller alongside home office furniture, electronics, etc. For one example of what that looks like, let's look at the results of an art sale Megh Knappenberger just ran.
In one week, she sold:
22 open edition prints
18 limited edition prints
$10,000+ in total revenue
That's all through her own website just by doing some effective marketing on Instagram and via email. As soon as we heard about Megh's success, we invited her to share her story on one of our Art Business Consulting Workshops (currently being run 4X a week). Here's a portion of that conversation:
In March, Art Storefronts members cumulatively sold 49% more art than they did during the same period of the previous year. In the first week of April, that number increased to 150%. In the second week, it increased again to 160%.
All this to say, the online art market is exploding right now, and photographers and artists that show up for it will be benefiting for many months to come.
