Quick Poll: Do You Have Community Partners That Help Your Art Business Grow?

daniel-hjalmarsson-loQuick Poll: Do You Have Community Partners That Help Your Art Business Grow?

Recently, while judging student’s art business plans at Wayne State University, I had a chance to speak to them about many important topics. One that stood out was the collaborators they needed to bring their creative business vision to fruition. Successful artists build relationships with people in various industries that can offer unique benefits and ideas. Growth is easier if one expands beyond their insular community and connects with non profits, municipalities, corporations and so forth.  Networking and developing community relations supports business in many ways;

1.) Creating new business – Connections to new clients come easier from people you know than from searching online.
2.) Be the first to know – Through connections, you can often learn about projects before they are made public and thus get in early or get the inside scoop about a project before you agree to take it on.
3.) Collaboration – With a wide network, you are more likely to be invited to take part in projects because people, first and foremost, think of those they know when deciding who to work with.
