The Art of Selling with Sharon Zimmerman

I'm delighted to share an announcement from an SF Etsy teammate, the very talented Sharon Zimmerman -- who will be teaching a class called The Art of Selling! Read on for more info!
Just in time for the holidays -- a class that teaches you how to capitalize on each and every sale! I would love to see a diverse group of artists for this seminar, so sign up soon!

We all put time into honing our artistic skills and our craftsmanship, so wouldn't it be great if we could apply this same dedication to selling our work? Wouldn't you like to have a spectacular holiday season of selling your art?

Come to this interactive workshop to learn techniques for selling your art work in person. More than just a lecture, we'll spend time practicing how to work with customers and learning how to treat every person who approaches you as a potential client. We'll go over a few techniques for dealing with the difficult ones too!

This is a great opportunity for anyone who plans on doing holiday art fairs, trunk shows or craft bazaars. The seminar will break down how to talk to customers, how to answer their questions before they ask, how to easily and clearly communicate what you do, your best practices when dealing with the public, and when to throw out all the rules and improvise.

Sharon Zimmerman
brings more than 12 years of experience in retail and customer service to the table. She has sold furniture, vintage jewelry, baked goods, kitchen wares, organic vegetables, yoga (yes, really) and jewelry-not just her own, but other designers as well -- to people young and old, rich and poor.

Sharon will give you great tips on how to turn potential sales into actual sales and how to build customer relationships for the long term. No materials are necessary for this class, but bring a pen and paper, and examples of your work (photographs are fine too!) to share with the class.This class is open to artists of all stripes and anyone who sells art for a living. Join us for a fun afternoon!
