Last time we said that the first thing you need to have are written goals.

The second thing may sound so basic, but you’d be surprised how many artists go without it.

The second thing is BUSINESS CARDS.

bizcardI don’t mean business cards from your “other job” where you write your contact number on it for someone interested in your art or design work. I mean a set of business cards specifically designed to identify you as an artist.

Why:

Think about it: How many times expectantly in conversation it comes up that you’re an artist? What should come next is you passing them an eye catching card so that they can not only remember you, but so that they can follow up with you.

It also allows you to stand out in a sea of artists that may be out there.

Here’s a website that allows you to create your own custom designed business cards, even in non-standard sizes: http://www.zazzle.com/businesscards
