Marketing isn't expensive these days, but you have to be willing to give your time
Subject lines are for getting ppl to open your email. Are they doing that job?
Remember that your #1 priority as an artist is to make art. Marketing is important, but it can't supersede your studio time.
Consider buying a separate URL for a big #art project. You'd hate for someone else to own the name of your project online.
If someone sees your art in a gallery and tries to buy fr you instead, send them back to the gallery. Every time.
I love seeing a full free day on my calendar. I've scheduled my biz so I can have that. You?

Every time you teach people how to look at your art, you empower them.
