Happy Monday all! Wow, so many are busy and productive! I voted on the Quirky ideas Janise and David- very fun! Congrats on your book Roy; it was great to hear Dan talk about you on the podcast! The last podcast featured quite a bit about artists- it was really great, full of ideas, inspiration and most importantly- there really is so much opportunity!
I voted Janise!
Congrats Roy, I heard you mentioned on Dan's podcast from last Friday. Really glad to hear things are going well for ya. Keep up the good work!
Congratulations on your Quirky votes, David. You are well on your way! I'd also love support/votes for my husband's Quirky submission: a super useful tool that I think tons of people greatly wish existed: http://www.quirky.com/invent/708570/action/vote/query/sort=newest&a...
Hi everyone, I could use a little help... Dan mentioned Quirky on the podcast and I got what I thought was a pretty good novelty item. I was wondering if I could get you to vote for my latest brainstorm on Quirky.com I need 200 votes to be considered for manufacturing... I appreciate your support just click the link and vote http://www.quirky.com/invent/709234/action/vote/query/sort=ending_soon
Thanks Deby! Slipped down the charts slightly but still selling, currently at number 4 in the US no 2 in the UK (for the art instruction niche). If members want any advice in the future for how I created the book etc, just message me and I will help if I can. As far as marketing, it helps, or rather is essential, to have a 'platform'. In my case it is PMP. I got a bunch of sales and reviews, this gets the Amazon algorithm to notice you and create momentum. I havent yet used my youtube followers (I will soon make a video, and edit some existing ones). Art books are under exploited on the increasing number of color kindle readers and of course apps. If you search you will find the big publishers with 'kindled' versions of print books for roughly the same price, they dont get it yet!
Roy, #1 looks good on you! Congratulations!! Can't wait to get the book.
Forgot to say... Judys charts are in resources section on pmp
Chris- give it a go! stuff written for Art has a fine shelf life compared to other non-fiction niches.
Hi! Thanks All!
Nathan your color wheel looks great! Your obvious skill in graphic presentation got me thinking. A Lady on PMP Judy Wright has put together pigment charts for all the watercolor manufacturers in pdf form, worth a look in case you could make them into a product. Need to contact her of course. Attached one of the 8.pigment1.pdf Sending you a message too
I've published several books through Create Space. That part is easy, it's the promoting them that takes some work. In my case I am pretty much a niche market so my main market is selling my books at my speaking engagements. http://www.amazon.com/Dave-Weiss/e/B005BHM57I/ref=ntt_athr_dp_pel_p...
