- Showcase your absolute best
You have limited chances to showcase your skills, thus you want to focus only on the very best. If a piece doesn’t fully convince you, no one else will be convinced either.
- Be scarce
Scarcity raises the value. Limited editions and rare releases lead to an overdemand of your works, which in turn leads to higher prices.
- Care for the community `
There are lots of artists out there doing what you’re doing. Engage with them, exchange ideas, and learn from others’ experiences. This will also widen your reach to collectors.
- Promote your work
You’re doing freelance. You must learn the best practices to promote your work. Don’t spam, don’t rush and be patient.
- Be in it for the long term
Like every new technology, it takes time to take root in the market. Enjoy the process and be in it for the long term and not quick gain.
