An artist may have the best artwork and booth display out of anyone in the art festival, but that does not mean their artwork is going to sell. You must interact with your customers!
Not only are you selling your work, but also you are selling a piece of you. You cannot just sit there and hope for people to come up and buy your work.
First, be friendly. Customers want to be greeted with a smile. We understand the show hours may be long, but you don’t want that to show on your face. Second, tell the customers in your booth about your inspirations and why you do your work. Give specific details on items they may be interested in. Third, tell your customers that you are having a successful show. People like to buy from successful exhibitors.
Please feel free to share success you have had with a customer below! Any tips are welcome. Also, if you are a customer reading this blog post, feel free to share an experience where you bought artwork from an artist because of how he or she interacted with you.
