It’s all happening on:

 

 

With over 35 years’ experience in sales and marketing, Cheryl Phan has work with companies such as Clear Channel Radio, CBS Radio, Fox TV, Palm Beach Post, KB Advertising and she is the owner of three self-made businesses.  In 2002 Cheryl took a courageous step, leaving the TV and Radio industry to be her own boss and start her own decorative painting business in Palm Beach County Florida.

 

 

Cheryl has established herself in the business building area implementing sales and marketing campaigns that move product, drive traffic, and increase sales.  Her true gift is coaching other women how to turn their hobby into an online business with real-world knowledge, simple techniques and sprinkled with fun.

My Story

 

Cheryl shares with The Rickie Report, “I’m going to be very vulnerable right now and tell you what happened to me back in 2008. Remember the recession? It’s hard to forget especially when it hits you hard. I had a decorative painting business and I still do to this day, but back then I didn’t prepare myself for the what if….  The business was going great. I was making a ton of money. I had a crew of people working for me and life was good”. 

 

My wake-up call

 

Cheryl says, “Until the bomb hit, and everyone was losing their homes, including me and to make matters more challenging , I had a hip replacement a few months before it happened. I was in panic mode. I was scared and put my business on hold and took a job making peanuts working 40+ hours a week that barely paid my monthly bills.  The bad news was I was laid off. The good news is it forced me to take along hard look at my life and what I was going to do to generate an income. I swore I would never let that happen again. So, I put on my big girl panties, pulled up my bootstraps and started my decorative painting business back up again, but this time I made some changes. I knew that I couldn’t depend on painting one job at a time. That’s when I took my business online and started building multiple streams of income from my painting business”. 

 

 

Sure, it was a little bit of work…

but I only had two choices:

 

 

 

 #1 I could go work for someone else and live paycheck-to-paycheck with no job security.

 

 

OR…

 #2 I could step out of my comfort zone and learn new and innovative ways to build my business. 

 

 

 

I decided on option #2 the benefits outweighed the reality. 

(Let me say this, if I can do this at 64 years old, so can you!!!)

 

 

 

It’s not rocket science, it a learning curve!!!!

Fast forward to 2022

 

During my journey on social media, my following started grow, new leads started pouring in and people started asking me for advice on how to start their own business. (BTW, this is the number one reason most women never get started, because they don’t know where to start).  I spent numerous hours responding to DM’s and messages until one day I decided to take my business knowledge, and experience and start sharing it with other women who are in the same boat I was in just a few years ago. 

 

FULL DISCLOSURE

 

When I started my business 20 years ago, I had no clue what I was doing. I made a LOT of mistakes and many of them were costly. I don’t want to see others make the same mistakes. I’m also a true believer in “#paying it forward”. When you are a blessing to others you will also be blessed. So long story short, I am now coaching women how use their God given talent to make money online doing what they love. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now for the good stuff!

 

 

 

I created a course called “First Things First”, because let’s face it, nobody has years to figure this out, especially when you’re over fifty. 

 

I’m giving away the first 5 modules from my course in a Free Mini course webinar. This is where I will teach you how to set up your business from scratch and get legit. Remember, If you’re not legit, you’re still a hobby.

A Personalized Approach to Marketing

There are any number of ways artists or other professionals can choose to market themselves.  Let’s be honest:  if you want to be in business, you have to consider your marketing strategies.  The Rickie Report shares some ideas and observations in this article.

 

 

A Personalized Approach to Marketing

 

 

We all market something, even when it is not of our own making.  The clothing we wear tells our surrounding society a lot, especially items with logos, the name of your favorite bar or the latest place you’ve been on a vacation.  Let’s take that a step further.  What do you really want and need to market to be a professional artist or creative?

 

 

 

MARKETING  is an extension of your creative output, be it jewelry, paintings, sculpture, ceramics or decorative art.  Within the word itself is “MAKE” and we believe that hitting your “MARK” intensifies the word’s meaning even more.

 

 Have you looked at your website lately?

 

  • This is your face to the public.
  • Is it time to spruce it up?
  • Have you ever asked anyone to proof read it for you?
  • Let us be clear:  A “website” can be a landing page with your business information and a contact email and phone number.  It does NOT have to be complicated.

 

 Are you public relations monster?  

 

  • You can be effective and lovable without being overbearing.
  • Ten messages on Facebook in one day is overload.
  • Use different modalities to get the word out ( Facebook, Twitter, e-newsletter, The Rickie Report, print media, radio)
  • Once you are accepted to an exhibit or show, THAT is the time to contact the media.  Most media outlets need 6-8 weeks lead time, especially print.  The Rickie Report needs 3-4 weeks notice but you can always check with us in case we have an opening.
  • Have a general press release prepared. Include Who, What, When, Where,Why as well as How people can reach you.  Always include your website, Facebook page address, email and phone number.

 

WIIFM: What’s In It For Me?

 

  • Appreciate your supporters ( buyers and fans)
  • Send a thank you email to your clients when they make a purchase
  • Send an art card for Holiday wishes, birthdays and special sales
  • Give returning patrons a discount on their next purchase.

 

 

How does your creative work transform other people?

 

  • Know who your audience is
  • Who are your ideal clients?
  • Accept that you cannot meet everyone’s interests
  • How are you reaching out to your clients and potential patrons ?

 

Share something about yourself that goes beyond your art

 

  • In your Artist Statement, do you share the feelings that drive you to create?
  • Art patrons make purchases that touch their emotions.   This is an opportunity to connect with them.  Tell them the story behind your necklaces, how you began making mugs, why you chose the subject matter in a painting.
  • Do you have a favorite charity?  Tell that story.  Offer to donate a % of that day’s sales to a charity.
  • Offer to do a trunk show or exhibit for a charity.  If they receive a % of all sales, you can be sure they will let their supporters know about the event!
  • Be a little off-beat.  Have an unusual give-away which costs you minimally but will remind passersby about your artwork.  (We still use a fragment of wood as a paperweight from an artist who cut up his unusual frames into small pieces.  He took the time to sign it.  Every time we move it, his artwork comes to mind.)

 

 

 

A more personalized approach to marketing will help you connect with your audience.  It helps your audience become fans.  

For you to succeed in the business of art, you need both.
