Promoting your Home Studio
Create a Cluster of Artists In Your Area
There are two main efforts home studios should focus on:
- Getting the word out about their location
- Making their location visible
Getting the word out involves generally promoting the ROS with posters, postcards and brochures, but more importantly for the home studios it means promoting your work and your location to ALL of your contacts. Utilize every potential avenue including neighbors, email lists, all social networking (multiple times), and consider various social circles - - religious, school past and present, activity groups, sports teams, volunteering groups, etc... anyone you hang out with!
Making your home studio location visible doesn't just mean balloons at your home, it means signage and balloons leading all the way to your location from the nearest major street/intersection.

Put balloons outside your home studio to make it more visible/easier to find.
