Mango Cupcake (www.deelishrecipes.com)

I have made a whole new batch of cupcakes, this time around with Mango. The frosting here is with whipped cream buttercream. In particular, I love the yellow food coloring on this. It looks very creamy and delicious.

Having been sharing my creations and creative ideas for so many years. I wanted to share my experience in helping creative entrepreneurs in selling their creations. I believe very much in how a creative person can make money (both online and offline too). And this same person may or may not be so skilled at selling their creations and art (work).

There are so many ways to make money as a creative person. Nowadays, there is even a new wave of stay-at-home moms (and dads) coming up with creative ideas. Some artistic people make art, draw, sew, knit, craft, paint and create videos.


Six Ways To Promote Your Art:

  1. Use your portfolio to promote your art
  2. Promote your art with a strong internet presence
  3. Art competition
  4. Build a robust network; Be an active participant in art organizations to build your brand as an artist
  5. Getting active in the community (charity events, local schools, community projects)
  6. Look for Digital Gallery Representation
