The holidays are almost upon us!┬áThis is the perfect time of year to take your first or next steps in creating a holiday sales promotion…

Haven’t sold anything yet? Not to worry. Now’s one of the best times of year to get started.

Your holiday promotion could be a special group of paintings, a calendar, a reproduction or poster, or notecards.

No website?

Again, no

worries…

You can complete the challenge with just an Instagram account or Facebook business page, even just a box of envelopes and a book of stamps! No fancy tech here, we’re keeping this challenge simple and doable!

About the Challenge

Each week of the challenge you’ll find helpful trainings, prompts, and action items.

Each set of trainings and action items includes clear and easy-to-complete tasks that help make your promotion successful. Since we’re starting with plenty of time, each week’s tasks should only take an hour or two.

Since accountability is one of the best ways to make sure something gets done, I’m encouraging you to post challenge updates inside of the Community. Let your fellow artists support you!
