Save money Save material Save time

I already knew that art could be sold online but it is now easier than ever. Many websites accommodate the seller in order to save them money. You can go on websites in which your art or photography are uploaded but are not printed until there is an order placed by a customer. The websites are able to send out for prints of the pieces that were sold which makes it a lot easier on the seller since there is no wasted money, material or time spent printing art that will not be bought. This makes making money off of art so much easier and financially safer.

How to Recruit people for positions

Finding people for certain jobs is difficult. Here are four steps to make it easier. First, you lure them in with intriguing questions that would spark their interest to keep reading. Next you would make an overall summary section in which you describe the purpose of the position being applied for and the jobs purpose to the company. Making this section compelling and meaningful will draw the person reading in more. Afterwards, you would list the responsibilities and explain their purpose, writing them in order of importance. Lastly, list any qualification requirements for the candidates to help refine your search for the perfect employee.

Sell your Art

Many people miss the opportunity to share their artistic creations with people because they don't dedicate time to display it to an audience and let them know its available. To sell art the first step is to just present your item but not encourage people to buy it. People often don't like when others try to persuade them to buy their product instead of another because it feels controlling. However, you can let them know that the product is available and the places where they can view it through social media. This makes it seem as more of their willingness to buy it instead of it being forced on them. Along with letting them know of the product, create a dialogue with you audience. Ask for input and opinions on what content they want to see. The next step, is to take time to get to know your audience on social media. If you are logged in a business account, most platforms show you the tractions of your posts. Knowing your audience helps you plan out strategic posts for specific times when the most people will see it. If the post does well in the first few hours the algorithm will push it to more peoples feed. Another thing to keep in mind is what platform you are using. Don't post the same things on different platforms. For example on instagram, you can share more visually aesthetic and eye catching images while facebook can be used for important announcements. Lastly, show personality in your business. One way of doing so is to share your journey so your audience has a glimpse of how you got to where you are. That is how to sell your art through social media.

First, to be successful on a large scale you cannot run the business alone. You must have a partner. The ideal number of parters is 2 to 3 for a start up or more.

Music Makes Money

Music is a passion and a hobby but it can also become a career. The music industry became a lot easier when technology made producing music so much more accessible. Having a computer can help make things like background chorus with only 3 voices using techniques like layering. Social media can help artists gain recognition and be able to release music. The music industry has many job opportunities but an important part of the job is to be able to do networking and manage accounts. At home artists now have a better chance to join the music word if they work hard and are talented.

Time management for enjoyment

Time is everyones enemy. We cannot stop it or buy it back. Therefore we must learn how to manage it to have moments that we can enjoy and that are useful. Plans, goals, to do lists, and organization all help when it comes to time management. Super busy people often don't manage to fit in everything they would like in a day because of the chaos and stress. They feel overwhelmed and say "there's no time". But with those words, the true meaning is that those things aren't a priority. To manage yourself better and be able to experience more moments that bring you happiness, appreciate the times in between. Often we take our devices out on a bus ride and start doing things or turn on the tv to relax for a minute after cleaning. If you were to take those moments and put them into something you enjoy more, you would be managing your time better.

Controlling Emotions

Today I learned that how you feel is a choice. You have control over your emotions and can change the way you feel in a moment if you take the right steps. You must except that life is full of challenges and that not everything will go your way. It is important to "go with the flow" of life because as long as you are healthy, you can change a negative outcome into a source of motivation to restart and be better. Moreover, you can not give people the power of manipulating you through emotions and reactions. People who are disrespectful and mean are often struggling in their own lives and are just looking for a way to feel better by tearing others down. To stay calm and collected you must not show a reaction to mean remarks because that is giving up your power and control.

How to grow a Social Media Platform

Social Media platforms such as Instagram, Snapchat, TikTok, and Pinterest can be used as a source of income. First you must grow these platforms by gaining views and followers. To do so, hashtags are important to reach a wider audience. Once there is a significant following, you can post advertisements and get payed for promoting items and giving shoutouts. The bigger the following the more money companies will pay for ads. Although building the platform is time consuming and being a posting schedule is tedious, it can be a easy way to gain a source of income.
