Building a business takes time and when it is successful it is a work of art. Look at your business as a work of art, pick a subject and sketch out your ideas. Create the composition using the endless limits of the medium you wish to work with. Now start to build your piece of art work. The time it takes develop depends on how well you know your craft and if you are able to teach it to others. You can go from making nothing to hundreds. It becomes the picture of a vision you have of your business.
Know there are some artists that hop from project to project not mastering the medium that they have picked. Create a style that people will recognize as your work of art (your brand). A finished master piece takes time. Your business will take time just like a painting you will have to develop your skills. First pick a niche that you love and when you have mastered the techniques you plan on using. Pick the products you think are going to complement your work (business), apply the color (products) and watch how your subject starts to appear on the canvas. Pay attention to every detail so that you can portray a piece of work that is beyond your expectations and is a master piece of art. The artist who hops from project to project may never be an accomplished artist who can successfully create a piece of art. Taking time to build your business is worth so much to the people you do business with that they look at it as a treasure. They can’t image losing it.
Art is personal creation that stirs up emotions that will reach out and grab your heart. This is the way you should feel about the business you are creating. Marketing techniques may take some time if you are starting from the ground up. Don’t settle until you are pleased with the finished piece of work. It requires dedication and practice before you are comfortable in your new role. Take the time to learn the products and services that you market. When you have a good fit you will know it. Create a business that is like no other, attracting people who share your passion will inspire them to develop a painting of their own. You have learned the art of marketing and can teach your skill to others. Only a true artist is able to teach the skills they have acquired. Masters in the art world are building a name based on their style and people who truly love art want it around them. The people who want to become a master will copy the skills of the person that they truly respect and are willing to take the time to teach what they know to anyone who will listen.
When you are confidante people will take notice. When you know the skills and are compelled to share it your business is working for you. Marketing is an art and I am confident that out of the millions of people who start out wanting to master it only a select few finish what they start. When you master your approach your confidence will show and you will not worry about how long it is going to take to build your business (art) because you know it is working and you are having a great time.
