A Place for Creativity & Creative People In CNY
I have been painting for many years and one of the hardest things for me to perfect is pricing. I can spend as much time pricing a piece as I have spent creating it. I am constantly looking for articles and trying to find a logical and consistent way to price my artwork. I recently found a way that is both and I am comfortable with. I am price work by the square inch. Has anyone used this method? What are your thoughts?
Pricing - there are all sorts of pricing - cost plus, value pricing, premium pricing. And then there are pricing strategies skimming, milking, defensive, etc etc. When it comes to pricing art I believe one has to start with the following - the price is determined by what price the seller is willing to sell and the buyer is willing to pay to buy. I don't believe that artists in many cases can price their artwork - they are too close to it. Having said all that
I believe that we can help Mari and many other artists sell more of their work and also increase their prices by employing specific marketing and merchandising strategies. That is one of the values and skill sets I am trying to bring to the table.
