I have the coolest job… I get to hang out and meet up with really creative people almost every day. Most recently I made a delivery of minty fresh Earl Lube to painter and fine artist Andrea Bogdan who has an upstairs studio/gallery inside the Last Bookstore in DTLA. She is putting her touch on everything from tennis shoes, motorcycle helmets, fine art canvas and stickers. Make sure and check her out if you’re in LA and give her a follow @andreabogdanartist.
update on my commission. I have just a little bit to go now, but I want the finished piece to be a surprise for all of you and for the customer 💛✨ I’m also moving across the state in 5 days so life is a little hectic right now

Y’all…can I say something that might ruffle a few feathers? Have you been saying to yourself “How many followers I have doesn’t matter…it’s the quality of the followers I have that counts”? Well sorry to be the one to have to tell ya this sweetie, but you’re wrong….well mostly wrong. And I say this with love in my heart. 💗 Stick with me here…
If you look at statistics for average website sales, conversion rates average around 3%-5%, meaning only that amount of people who see what you are selling will actually take out their credit card and buy it. And this is when people are using traditional devices or tablets for shopping. If you look at the rates for those using smartphones (hello, Instagram!), then that rate drops to 1%-1.5%. Think about how many people have to see your art before someone buys it with those numbers.
Yeah…..I know. Not what you wanted to hear right? Well I didn’t share this to discourage you. I share it to enlighten you and let you know that there is hope. .
So how many of you artists want to have a sustainable art business? Well for that to happen, you need more people to see your art, meaning more traffic….and not only more traffic, but more targeted traffic to your Instagram and your website. Instagram is the number one source of traffic for my website and the majority of my art sales and opportunities have happened because they found me on Instagram.
Honestly I want to see more of you out there making a living from your art! The world needs you to succeed and more people need to see your work! Because this gift you were given, this ability to create art, it’s not just for you. It was meant to be shared with the world. You need to think bigger!
This course is just your first step. Amira has a passion to see other artists succeed and she wants to help you. Don’t wait any longer because you will miss out on this opportunity. The last day to sign up is this Friday. Go now and sign up via my affiliate link in my bio —> @pauletteinsall
