MODULE ONE

THE BIG PICTURE

This is the foundation module; the one that contains the building blocks for your whole Artist’s Business Plan. It focuses on defining your vision, mission & purpose and your values. How much revenue you want to turn over in the next 12 months, and which key products and/or services you should choose to get you there.

MODULE TWO

PRODUCTS & SERVICES

In this module we dive deeper into what you are actually selling, looking at all your products and/or services. You’ll also get to grips with pricing them following our super simple 6 Step Formula so that you have clarity and confidence to get them out into the world.

MODULE THREE

AUDIENCE

In this module, we’ll be finding out exactly who you want to sell your products and services to and how you can set yourself apart from your competition. You’ll choose a good solid niche (if you haven’t got one already), and fully profile that perfect future customer.

MODULE FOUR

VITAL RESEARCH

This module is all about identifying your competitors, discovering your own strengths and weaknesses, learning how to identify your USP (what makes YOU special) and use this to your advantage. This research is fun, simple and crucial if you want to stand out in a crowded art world and sell lots of your work or workshops.

MODULE FIVE

BUSINESS MODEL

In this module, we look at how you actually want to run your art business. There are so many options out there and we dive into all of them, so you can choose the best one for you. We also look at creating systems, processes and how you can start to plan for growth with a section on how to build a team around you.

MODULE SIX

MARKETING & SALES

So, you have your vision, products and services, who you want to sell to and how you want to work defined, now it is time to start thinking about WHERE and HOW you will reach out and interact with your audience and generate sales. In this module, we cover the basic Marketing & Sales strategies you’ll need to become successful.

MODULE SEVEN

THE FINANCES

In this module we break down all the important business financials you’ll need in order to set up and grow a profitable Art Business. We look at how to track all your income and expenses, as well as things like plotting out what you'd like to be selling in the future via our funky simple cashflow forecast spreadsheet.

“I recently completed Sophie Mahirs’ Build Your Artist Business Plan on-line course. Why I found this course valuable is because it made me think of why I am an artist and what I want to achieve. Following all the Modules I was able to articulate the blueprint or road map for me to follow for a successful Arts Business. Sophie takes us step-by-step through the modules which are easy to follow and what I realised, which gave me confidence is: ‘It is do-able’. I had this epiphany after doing the finance sections. Sophie is thorough and very supportive all the way. I really recommend this course if you are seriously wanting to set your business plan in motion.”

“This course Build Your Artist’s Business Plan is well constructed, practical and eminently doable - and it delivers! I have now a comprehensive business plan, which I can reference regularly and happily finesse. Having regular group video linkups with Sophie while the course runs,  provides valuable backup and motivation.

Completing this has been a very worthwhile experience and I'm excited to action all I have learnt to develop my art business.”

Sanchia Marshall

"The Build Your Artist Business Plan Course is a great and essential foundation for a successful art business. It was fun to dive deeper into my ideal customer and gain a clear view of where I am headed and what I am doing and when with my art practice. It helped me to understand my art from a different perspective and to be able to use that insight in my marketing. You still have to be the one to get in action this plan, but that's why it's exciting, because it's your plan, to suit you and your art. Wish I'd done it sooner!"
