Transmedia Artist Marketing a valuable resource for every serious artist by Katarina Fagerstrom Levring

Light Movement II by Katarina Fagerstrom Levring
To every artist who has doubts about his or her capability to market their own works, I can tell you this: there are some really good resources out there on the Net, suitable for every artist in need. One of those is a site called : Transmedia Artist Marketing, which is run by poet and artist Marie Kazalia. Kazalia also owns and runs the blog called Artist Marketing Salon where I first came to know about her excellent services. The Salon Kazalia describes as:

started this blog on February 3, 2009, to share useful information with other artists, as a free reference library of sorts…a repository to aid you in your own self-directed art promotion and artist marketing...

It is indeed a vast resource for self-promottion, worth bookmarking and taking your time looking at more closely, at an affordable cost:)

At the Transmedia Art Marketing site, Kazalia offers writing services, like article writing, to promote your work and proposal writing for a very decent cost. She also has written an e- book called: "Transmedia guide to making artist submissions", which I can recommend, for the artist who want`s to write herself. Kazalia also promotes a more resourceful and costly service called  "The Virtual Assistant for Artists" which she describes as follows:

Looking for someone to market and promote your art for you? Increase your exposure, artist reputation, and earnings?
Want to work with someone who has the right connections to advance your career? Someone who will craft effective submissions, then make them on your behalf to opportunities you don’t even know exist?
My name is Marie Kazalia. With more than 15 years of experience in the field of Fine Arts and promotion–view my relevant experience here–I am offering my services as a “Virtual Assistant” to artists in all mediums who are looking for personalized help to gain entrance to galleries and exhibitions, find representation, and increase their income from art sales.

I warmly recommend you to check out these resources for yourself, since art-marketing is a large field trying to cover and every artist has their own needs and wants. You are very welcome to check in and tell about your own tips also.
