What The AMA Is
The Art Marketing Association is an international organization dedicated to assisting artists, artisans, craftspeople, photographers and galleries to improve their marketing skills and to hone their efforts to become more profitable, thus helping to share their message with the world.
That's the mission and that's our goal. I get kinda tired of hearing artists whine about not making enough money, not being able to sell their work, etc. I can see that it was way more difficult 10 years ago but today times are different. You literally have EVERYTHING you need at your disposal to be successful. You are the one in control nowdays. It's YOU who will determine your artistic success (however you define that)
What The AMA Will Do For You
It's a place to go that is bursting with new, relevant and USEABLE information including informative videos, monthly expert audio cd, power-packed screencasts, step-by-step courses, articles, ebooks and other amazing content from world famous artists and marketing experts who know how to market and sell art. It's all right there for you to watch, read, listen and interact with. It's an inspiring, one-stop place that covers a broad marketing spectrum.
The AMA is designed to give you the information and the tools to succeed. I do not actually know of any sites that actually help artists in the way the AMA is. When I went to school at Pratt a number of years ago I do not remember them having 1 class – ok, I take that back, I think they had one class about art and business. I mean once your out of school you had no idea what to do. They never factored commerce into the equation at all!
Another thing makes the Art Marketing Association unique (and exciting) is it's world-class faculty of experts. These are artists and other experts who are leaders in their field and have agreed to share their knowledge and expertise with AMA members. And make no mistake that they are not some theorists or academies living in ivory towers. They are “in the trenches” daily and know what to do and what works. That is, how to sell, market and make money.
Faculty members include the # 1 expert in Art Licensing, Tara Reed. One of the savviest online video marketers working today, Perry Lawrence. The king of celebrity marketing, Jordan McAuley. World-renown Fine artist, marketing (and social media marketing) diva, Lori McNee. We are also extremely lucky to have “The Mindset Maven,” author, speaker and coach PJ McClure.
Also the amazing Sian Lindemann who will bring her amazing track record of success to the AMA via artist career development and gallery relations. Marcia Yudkin is one of the most highly regarded after marketing experts in the world. She will be bringing her expertise to the AMA via marketing via publicity. Ben Settle is also with us. Ben is a direct response copywriter, web entrepreneur and email marketing specialist.
Doug Farrick, president of the AMA, will offer his expertise in the area of entrepreneurship, marketing and business systems. We also welcome Bert Grimm. Bert is a master eBay seller, marketer extraordinaire and also a WordPress expert.
New areas of expertise are being considered so expect to see new AMA faculty members in the coming months. Remember, these faculty members know their stuff. That's why they were selected. You'll get access to their knowledge and wisdom via becoming an AMA member. It's like having your own exclusive mentoring group at your disposal!
