The Art Of Selling Art Online

find your focus, build confidence and make more sales!

yes, you really can build a business around your creative talents that is fun, supports you financially and leaves you enough time to work on your art.

So you're an artist and you decided to sell your art online. You know your work is good because your Facebook friends and Instagram followers all love it and maybe you've also sold work offline before.

You hired someone to build you a really fancy website (or you made one yourself) and then you waited for the fans and customers to come along and buy your creative work.

But nothing happened...crickets!

Now you're back working at the cafe because you just don't sell enough to support yourself financially.

Slowly you figured out that it takes more than just having a fancy website, several online stores and a ton of social media accounts. You need to learn how to think like an entrepreneur...yikes!

Just thinking about that makes you feel icky and salesy and like a used cars salesman.

Why Selling Art Online Is So Damn Hard

You just don't have the time: In between your money making jobs, creating your art and your social life there is just not enough time and energy left to also take care of all the business stuff you know you are supposed to do.

You don't even know where to get's all so overwhelming: You know you're supposed to write blog posts and newsletters, create social media updates, keep your books in order, etc, etc. Your to-do list keeps growing and don't even look at it anymore, it just makes you want to curl up in bed and watch Game of Thrones all day long.

You'd rather be in the studio: Honestly, maybe you're just not made to run a business. After all, you're a right brain person and not a left brain person like all those computer nerds and financial geniuses. That's why you became an artist. Creativity is what you are made of, not logic and numbers.

Kristin PavlickI was very overwhelmed with the idea that I could make a living as an artist and I had a very beginner understanding of what a functional online business was.

Yeah, I had a basic online presence (website, FB profile) but never saw it as an entire venue that I had total control over.

Here Is A Secret That Changes Everything

Imagine this: You wake up in the morning, make some coffee and open your laptop. You smile.

You are excited to get to work on your art biz. You know exactly what needs to get done today and how it will positively influence your bank account.

After an hour you close your laptop and start working on your art. At night you meet up with friends for a drink. Life is good.

All this is possible for you! You CAN build a heart based, right brain business that is based on your unique, individual personality. A business that is fun and easy and actually gets you excited about working on it...just like you get excited about working on your art.

The secret lies in realizing that you can take the gift of creativity, which you have in abundance, and use it to build a business. Just like creating a piece of art. The creative process is the same!

You start with a white canvas and add some broad strokes in red (your general biz plan). Then you take a step back, look at it and decide to add some yellow (maybe a new product) and then some blue (this could be a new way of promoting your work on Instagram).

See? It's all about looking at it from an artist's perspective :)

What You Will Get

The Art Of Selling Art Online is a 6-month program that was created to help you make the transformation from being an artist to being an artist entrepreneur.

It shows you how to develop the online business skills that compliment the creative talents you already have.

Together, they will elevate you to a completely different level and generate more sales than ever.

A Lesson A Week

28 lessons altogether. Each lesson will be delivered straight to your email inbox for easy consumption.

This way you will be able to revamp and improve your creative web biz in 6 months, without getting overwhelmed and drowning in chaos and to-do lists!

Clearly Structured Content

The course consists of 4 modules which each include 7 lessons and will focus on a different aspect of your creative web biz.

Module 1 will be all about fighting overwhelm and confusion by defining a very simple, heart based business plan you can use to make future decisions.

In module 2 we will define our financial goals and learn how to create a product line that actually sells.

During module 3 we will create a simple, easy to follow non-icky marketing plan that is authentic and feels right.

In module 4 we will make some little but very important tweaks to your website so it does what it is meant to do: Sell!

Weekly Action Items

For all 28 lessons you will also get an additional action item to complete. So you will not just learn a lot but also actually get things done at the same time.

This will not take longer than 20-30 minutes a week. And you will build a habit of working on your art biz continuously step by step.

Weekly Mastermind Calls (optional)

Once a week there will be scheduled mastermind calls with me and your fellow students (if you opted for the CWB Club edition of The Art Of Selling Art Online).

During these calls you can ask me any questions you might have about the course materials. You can also get my advice on your ideas or get feedback from the other course participants.

All calls will be recorded so don't worry if you can't make it, you can listen to them later at any time. You will also be able to ask questions in advance.

Access To A Private Online Community (optional)

If you choose the CWB Club edition of The Art Of Selling Art Online you will get free access to the Creative Web Biz Club, a private online community.

This way you can share ideas, resources & connections and therefore, create a much bigger pool of knowledge.

You can also hold each other accountable and keep each other on track. The group provides immediate feedback which saves time.

This kind of community has the power to double and triple the amount of success that is achievable!

Who Is Teaching This Course?


My name is Yamile Yemoonyah and I have helped hundreds of artists and other creative entrepreneurs build and grow their online business.

After attending four colleges in three different countries, I decided that the traditional school system was not my path and dropped out to become a full time artist.

Right from the start I wanted to sell my art online instead of in galleries.

Over the years I learned all about WordPress, online marketing, social media, SEO and everything else you need to know to run a profitable online business.

In the meantime I saw lots of my friends suffer in 9-5 jobs that they hated because they just didn't know how to make a living doing what they love.

So in 2010 I decided to set up to help independent artists and other creative entrepreneurs from around the world start and grow their own online business.

"Trying to set up your own web biz? CWB is a life-line, the step-by-step friendly and accessible guide which empowers you with the skills you need - fast and easy.

Yamile is a talented and authentically helpful web consultant - combining state-of-the-art service and know-how. She enables you to become the captain of your own (web)ship. Thank you Yamile for making it possible and fun." - Francesca, writer.

That's no problem at all. In fact brushing up on your business skills and having a marketing plan in place first, will make your website way more professional and effective once you get one.
Could you really do this on your own? If so, why haven’t you done it yet? Having a structure and guidance makes the process of growing your art biz easier and faster.

Don’t worry, you won’t have to sit through hours upon hours of video training and downloading crappy PDFs. TAOSAO is focused on ACTION. You’ll have a bit of weekly training, to give you the ‘how-to’, but then the focus will be on you doing the work inside your business + getting help from Yamile and your group.

Expect to spend anything from 30-120 minutes / week on doing the work, depending on how what you have in place so far.
