Tips for Growing your Paint Party Business
1. Feel Certain of Your Mission
I love Christal’s passion and reason for teaching! She is a certified anxiety coach and wanted to bring in healing anxiety through art. As she so brilliantly shared, the goal is to help artists build confidence because confidence diminishes anxiety since anxiety is fueled by doubt. So awesome!
2. Give Free Content
Giving away free content may not seem like a smart business idea at first, but it does help build a business. You have to earn trust before people invest in you. Plus you can help a lot of people out, just like in this very blog post, for example!
Chris started with free paint parties that had 12 people in attendance at first. She slowly started adding paid art parties into her offerings. These days her free parties have 1,000s of attendees and the paid ones have hundreds! So impressive!!
3. Growing Your Paint Party Business Through Consistency
Consistency looks different for everyone and every business. For Christal, she stays consistent by doing 1-2 Facebook lives a week, typically on Thursdays and/or Fridays in the evening time.
She also said she always sets up events the same exact way. People know what to expect during the registration process whether it’s a free or paid event.
Here’s even more tips and ideas for staying consistent in your business.
4. Plan and Work Ahead
Christal brought up a brilliant point in our interview about growing your paint party business by working ahead of time. For example, Christmas paintings and events for them were up a month in advance. By working on December content in November, it allowed time for anticipation to build and for attendees to share the event with friends and family. So smart!
5. Learn and Implement!
This is a HUGE one that people who are successful always do. This is a two-step tip…you’ve got to do both parts to see results. First, you need to learn – whether it’s through podcasts, books, shows, or classes like Paint Party Headquarters here! where we specifically teach you how to make money teaching art online and in person! But, that’s only have the equation.
The second and even more important step is to IMPLEMENT what you learn!!! It doesn’t matter how many classes you take…if you don’t actually do the work, nothing happens! You’ve got to take action to see success.
