Visual artists who learn how to sell art to interior designers and corporate art consultants give themselves multiple ways to diversify and make more money.
Online PR News – 09-September-2014 – Scottsdale, AZ – Due its size, the interior design market provides huge opportunities for visual artists to sell more of their art. Until now, artists have not had a source of information to help them find interior design professionals and learn how to sell their work to them. How to Sell Art to Interior Designers is a new book that offers practical advice and insider details on how to get artwork sold to interior designers, corporate art consultants and represented in interior design centers.
For years, the Bureau of Labor Statistics confirmed there are nearly ten times more interior designers and decorators purchasing artwork than there are art galleries in the US. Such lopsided stats should make marketing to interior designers an attractive market for visual artists. Unfortunately, most artists lack awareness of the opportunity and the specifics on how to tap into the market. How to Sell Art to Interior Designers solves the problem by offering useful information, plus practical tips and techniques not available anywhere else.
Two longtime friends and art-marketing professionals have pooled their art marketing expertise and experience to write How to Sell Art to Interior Designers. They aim to help visual artists and artisans learn effective, profitable ways how to sell to interior designers. The book is available on Amazon.com in both print and Kindle editions.
Dick Harrison enjoyed a well-paid career as both an artist and an independent representative for other artists and publishers of fine art.

In addition to How to Sell Art to Interior Designers, he has two books listed on Amazon.com. He is at work on three more titles, including Sales Tips for Artists, which will include material listened to by artists in 60 countries and hundreds of cities worldwide on his TalkShoe.com podcasts.
