Giving Your Buyers Something Extra
One of the tips from my new book: From Amateur to Pro|Am Photographer … and Beyond ……
When someone buys a print from you at a show, offer to have a picture of you and the buyer taken holding the print. Get their email and send them the image.
This does two things:
Gives them provenance for the future that they bought the image directly from the artist.
Gives you an email address you can use to inform them of upcoming releases or shows you might be in. (and use of the artist/buyer image in your social media)

Besides, what buyer wouldn’t want a picture of themselves and the artist holding the print they just bought to show others!
