You’ve TAKEN ALL THE CLASSES and gathered a lifetime of information.
You know what you’re supposed to be doing, but you’re NOT DOING IT.
What you’re missing is ongoing CONNECTION TO YOUR ART BUSINESS – something that makes you want to get out of bed every morning and share your art with the world.
The Art Biz Incubator is . . .
An ongoing program designed to accelerate the growth and success of entrepreneurial artists through a variety of business support resources and services that include an archive of educational resource material, coaching, networking, and community interaction.
We are like a family in the Incubator.
Some of our members have been with us since the beginning in January of 2011!
They are committed to professionalism and to supporting other members.
Most of our members are former students in my classes or workshops.
They find motivation and inspiration in the ongoing connection to their goals.
They know they could get together with a group of artists and do it on their own, but their support
wouldn’t be consistent without a leader to facilitate the learning and growth.
There are two tiers in the Incubator:
|Artist Entrepreneurs Club||Inner Circle|
Our basic membership, the AEC, provides ongoing support to artists who have a basic business foundation after taking Art Biz Coach classes or similar.
See how we do this below.
The Inner Circle combines the AEC + a high level of private coaching.
Coming in April 2014!
|Whatever level you choose, you’re sure to experience a friendly and encouraging atmosphere in the Incubator.|

Is It for You?
Art Biz Incubator members are encouraged to have a business foundation before joining. This means you should have most of the following in place:
- Website or blog
- Artist statement and bio
- Mailing list and email distribution platform
- Facebook profile
- A few sales or exhibitions/performances under your belt
WHY IS THIS FOUNDATION IMPORTANT?
It’s important to all members that we don’t rehash subjects you should have
learned in one of these classes. Some things are just so fundamental that you
need to learn them thoroughly in a class situation rather than the more informal dialogue that
occurs in a membership program.
The Member Experience
Members of the Art Biz Incubator are strongly encouraged to select one of 8 areas that is most important to them at the moment.
- Add New Venues
- Execute Exhibitions & Events
- Improve Systems
- Maintain Marketing
- Ramp Up Marketing
- Seek Inspiration
HERE’S HOW WE SUPPORT YOU AS YOU TAKE ACTION:
Soak up peer expertise in our members-only private group on Facebook.
This is where you can connect with your like-minded peers, seek advice, and share your goals and your expertise. Alyson is not active on this group, but members are quite active.
Get unstuck during the monthly coaching calls.
Hands down, this is the most valuable benefit of you membership. Once a month you can ask Alyson anything about the areas of your business where you seem stuck or could use direction.
Coaching calls are usually on Thursdays at 4pm ET. They are always recorded and, if you can’t attend, you can submit questions in advance on the Facebook group.
Gain new knowledge from our special guests.
At least four times a year, Alyson carefully selects guests to share their expertise on a topic that will help you grow your art business.
Find answers in our vast archives.
Our Library includes at least 100 audio recordings, transcripts, and worksheets – all carefully curated to go along with our focus areas – to help you expand your art business.
There is no structured curriculum like you might find in an Art Biz Coach class.
There’s no such thing as playing catch-up. You are perfect just where you are.
Your investment in the Artist Entrepreneurs Club is just $37 a month, but you can try us out for just $1 for a month – an offer available only to new members.
