There are many artists today who are struggling to get a gig or two as artists. A lot of people stick with what’s necessary that it leaves artists with poor sales and fewer gigs along the way. But is it really hopeless considering the bad economy?
What artists should know is that they should be flexible when it comes to getting gigs. First, they shouldn’t just stick with what they know but instead go after things that they don’t really work on. If you are working on traditional types of art, then why not go after digital work? Also, you want to advertise yourself. You’d be surprised how many people are willing to spend on your art. One of the best ways on how you can advertise yourself as an artist is by having social media accounts such as Instagram and Facebook.
And of course, you shouldn’t just rely on your community or on your niche for gigs. Instead, you want to actively look for clients who would need a handy artist. You can sign up on platforms that would allow you to transact with them. You at least have the money on escrow.
