LAST CHANCE to get smARTist Telesummit
2008 Home Study Edition

Because it comes down forever on Tuesday,
August 14th

Find the right balance between making art and making a living from your art!

Let’s face it. You’re busy. You’re really busy.

Most days, you wonder how you can possibly do it all.

And there’s just so much to think about when it comes to getting your art in front of the right people.

Some days you’re just too tired and worn down to even want to figure it out. Some days you wonder if you can do it at all.

The problem is, you have a *polycephaly* on your hands

*polycephaly: any multi-headed beast

All these competing demands of your life are like Ladon, the ten-headed dragon in Greek mythology who guarded the Garden of Hesperides.

Those ten heads did an excellent job of confusing and distracting anyone who tried to enter the gods’ domain.

A few centuries later, and it looks as if this ten-headed dragon has traded hobnobbing with a bunch of Greek gods for guarding your gate to a successful art career instead.

And like any self-respecting, ten-headed dragon, he loves nothing more than distracting you with a steady stream of questions while the real opportunities slip past you faster and faster with each turn of the technology dial.

But what if you actually had the answers to these questions:

  • Do you go after a gallery or sell it yourself?

  • Do you hire a web designer or put up a pre-made template?

  • Is writing your own blog a fad or an absolute necessity?

  • Can you really double your income by licensing your art?

  • What does YouTube have to do with you?

  • What marketing strategies work, and which ones just drain your bank account?

  • How hard is it to find an agent? Is a business plan for an artist a waste of time?

  • Does it actually matter what you put in an email to introduce yourself?

Then, once you have the answers, the gate to your art career opens...

Presenting the complete smARTist Telesummit 2008

This 2008 smARTist® Telesummit dramatically
changed my life in three ways:

Sandy Sandy
  • Increased my marketing knowledge tremendously. Now I have an abundance of marketing knowledge to help promote and sell my art! I've been implementing a lot of the Internet tips from Joan Stewart, Claudine Hellmuth and Alyson Stanfield and have increased traffic (2000 visits/day) to my websites.
  • Provided me with the tools and resources to increase my exposure. The smARTist Telesummit has definitely given me great tools to take better advantage of publicity outlets and opportunities. For example, I’m now using a blog, a Squidoo lens, and YouTube to generate traffic to my websites.
  • Gave me the confidence and permission to "toot my own horn." I feel like I've just barely scratched the surface here. The resources provided by Ariane Goodwin and her line up of experts really fueled my fire, and will keep me going for a very long time…
    …at least until the next smARTist Telesummit in 2009!

By the end of that first session, I felt I’d already gotten my money’s worth!

Cathy Morgan

I found it very moving, and plan to listen to it again—probably several times.

It opened up a wonderful flow of feeling in me and tears of relief. Trust your intuition about the leadership you're providing, Ariane. You're doing a great job!

Yes, I want it!

The smARTist 2008
Home Study Edition has 3 Goals

  1. To stop daily overwhelm so you can balance creating with all your other demands
  2. To free up your time for making art with a clear action plan to guide your career
  3. To easily market & grow your art sales with heart and authenticity

I'm so impressed with the Speakers

Jan Jensen

I'm so impressed with the Speakers this year that I couldn't imagine any other line up that would exceed the level of specialty competence, content quality, and integrity of character presented by each and every one of them.

I'm looking forward to making the best of all this information over the next year. Thank you, Ariane!

5 Ways smARTist® Telesummit Worked For Me

Judy Korge

After listening to the smARTist® 1st Panel Day on “Balance,” I realized what an amazing resource is available to the creative community.

Here are 5 results of my participation in this year’s telesummit:

  1. I’ve taped a visual outline on the wall right behind my computer, and I update it monthly.
  2. I added a blog to my personal website and my gallery website. Now that I can talk the walk, I promote blogging to other entrepreneurs (or is it walk the talk?).
  3. I set up an outline of all smARTist speakers for a two-week, per topic, strategy, from March 31 to September 22. During each two-week phase, I will extract and apply some small idea, which will eventually become bigger than life for my business and me.
  4. Using Aletta de Wal's suggestion to keep goals simple, realistic and achievable, I kick start my day with tips from one of the following speakers: self care by Waverly, Eric Maisel's incantations, or Jennifer Louden's Breath of Joy.
  5. I hired someone to organize my office space before the end of April.

Thank You. I'm blessed and encouraged by all of this smARTist® information.

James Morreau

You have done a great job of bringing all of this information together and providing it to us in a nice, neat package. Plus it’s a GREAT VALUE, considering how much you get!

The change is so big that I bet most people would feel scared

Dmitry Badiarov

I would like to express my profound gratitude to you for organising the smARTist® Telesummit, two years in a row! Thanks to pure luck, I found your website two and a half years ago. Since then, your wonderful book and the Telesummits have helped to make my career a lot easier to advance.

I wish I’d met you 10 years ago! The young artists coming to your telesummit are really lucky to be there now, not 10 years down the road.

It’s not only the 2008 Telesummit that helped, but the ensemble of resources: your book + the Telesummits. At last I can grasp the true spirit of my work. The change is so big that I bet most people would feel scared. I will not be surprised if everything takes a completely new and unexpected route: my medium, profile, direction, priorities…all of my career. So, thank you. And thanks to all of the speakers who came on board!

It is a professional, art-career program that gives you the tools, techniques, and tips you need to transform any lingering fears of “recession” into the action you need to create a “progression” of your career goals, one healthy action step at a time.

It’s the Big Picture advice you won’t find anywhere else. And it’s tailor-made for any discipline or craft: 2-dimensional, 3-dimensional, Multi-media, or Digital.

You covered so much so well that I consider it money well spent

Huguette May

My New Year's resolution was to learn how to market my own work, and the Telesummit was made to order for jump-starting me down that path. As an experienced artist - but a neophyte art marketer - the Telesummit introduced me to concentrated information in a condensed time period. It was an immersion experience, which is my favorite and most effective way to learn.

The Telesummit also gave me an opportunity to hear several art-marketing coaches speak in person, which helped me decide who I wanted to work with. I know that I will be listening to the 2008 presentations throughout the year, as particular needs arise. Knowing I have those recordings to hear again is a comfort. You covered so much so well that I consider it money well spent.

Yes, I want it!

3 Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Wait

#1: This is the last chance to get this conference material because itís coming down for good.

#2: It's a ridiculous price for 7-days worth of art career material

#3: Your art deserves it.

But what if I find that this isn't for me?

This is a reasonable, honest concern that I’m happy to answer.

I'm so confident this material will WoW you that I will offer a straightforward guarantee: If you feel, in your heart, that this program is not for you, I'll cheerfully refund all of your money up to 30 days after your purchase - with no conditions and no strings.

If you need this course, and are hesitating, remember that the difference between hesitation and a decision is action.

Imagine what happens when your potential collectors hesitate: you lose a sale.

Every decision exacts some level of sacrifice; it's natural to the process.

I know a lot about what it's like to struggle from month to month, and make hard choices...

I have also learned that if I don't choose to act earlier rather than later, not much changes in the direction of my life.

This is your moment to change the direction and quality of your art career - and I trust and support your decision, either way.

Wishing success in and out of the studio,
