When you send a promotional image, do you always include a description, size, dimensions? How about a link to your web site?
Did you include the price? When it's a Trunk Show or craft fair and the event is all about selling, yes, in this situation include the price.
If asked for a promotional image of your work, are you ready to send an image in the next five minutes? A successful artist or maker is always ready. The Press always wants their images yesterday.
For the upcoming SNAG Trunk Show a couple of people sent me images. They were prepared!
"Spectacular achievement is always preceded by spectacular preparation."
Jennifer Butterfield sent this pendant image as a TIF at 6MB.
TIP #1 Send a JPG and offer TIFs for print as an option.
This purse is by Joan Waters. It is a great idea for a Trunk Show image or standing outside the show.
TIP #2 Please include a complete description. Joan included dimensions and materials with the image. Good for her! This sculpture is 5' high x 4' wide, made of welded steel.
Don Friedlich sent this image of his brooch. His images have a strong graphic appeal.
TIP #3 Photos should be dramatic and eye catching.
Sheila Summerlin sent the image to the left.
TIP #4 Always include a link to your web site along with a complete description.
