A New ArtisticPreneur Web Page by John Yianni Stamas on Halloween

ArtisticPreneur Museum
The New York City Museum for ArtisticPreneurs is unlike any museum you’ve seen before. For one thing it’s only available online.

Hello Fellow ArtisticPreneur.

It’s Halloween 2018 as a write this and at this very moment I am sadly missing a séance to try to contact the world famous magician Harry Houdini from beyond the grave. True story! Houdini died on Halloween in 1926 and the annual séance is taken place in Houdini’s childhood home here in New York City. At any rate “Happy Halloween!” Be safe. And now we’re moving into the blog topic.

You see, we’re repeating the process that we did last week. For last week’s newsletter we tried something new and gave you an insight into our process of developing a new website that we are working on which is called ArtisticPreneur.com (yes, you’re on that site right right now!).

The experiment seemed to work last time, because several of you said that seeing it gave you ideas for your own projects. Therefore we are continuing with it this week by focusing on a new web page. And this makes sense because giving you this kind of newsletter content “case study” is in line with our mission.

Here’s a Simplified Version of Our Mission:

“To use innovative digital marketing tools with an entertainment edge to ultimately help ArtisticPreneurs to get more new customers, clients and fans.”

The Mission Applies to Two Different Kinds of ArtisticPreneurs

This includes ArtisticPreneurs who are artists of all kinds who are starting to use entrepreneurship for their career, as well as small business owners who are creative. Both of these types of ArtisticPreneurs are on our email list.

College Credit

As some of you know I am getting my Master’s Degree in Arts Administration and only have a single semester left after this one. The new page that I am going to feature this week is one that is called “Museum” and is part of a final project I am doing for my “Audience Development” class.

The Assignment

The assignment is to construct a marketing strategy for getting new audience members to come to a museum. Most people in class are using a brick and mortar museum such as the “Museum of Modern Art” or MOMA here in Manhattan.

But I looked upon the assignment differently. Instead, I’m creating a page that I’m calling an online museum gateway that is known as the “New York City Museum for ArtisticPreneurs” or its acronym NYCMFA. I even set up a shorter “forward” to the museum page which is NYCMFA.com.

Work in Progress

Anyway, before linking to the NYCMFA page so that you can take a look at it, I wanted to make clear that this is a “work in progress.” You see, several of the links that are referred to on the page aren’t there because the stuff that they will eventually be linked to doesn’t even exist yet! This is the case at the present time but if you’re reading this sometime in the future, the page may be complete.

Your Link

Okay this is the link to the ArtisticPreneur Museum page!

Hats Off to Entertainment Entrepreneurship

ArtisticPreneurs now have more control than ever before. They certainly do when it comes to what pages we add as a website. Entertainment Entrepreneurship did a blog entry about this.

Our Hearts Warmed

Even though we don’t know the bloggers from Entertainment Entrepreneurship that well, our hearts were warmed when we just discovered that EntertainmentEntrepreneurship.com has done a post about our content adding strategy.

Site Building Strategy

Entertainment Entrepreneurship is correct when they talk about our blogging and content writing staff adding new topics to our site based on interest. This gauging of public interest is based mostly on feedback we receive from our contact page.

Listening to You

This means that YOU are in control. Let us know what you like thus far and we’ll try to add more of it. Our difficult to reach goal is based on the belief that together we can build a website that is worthy of our namesake, “ArtisticPreneur.”

Thanks Entertainment Entrepreneurship

And finally we wish to thank Entertainment Entrepreneurship for believing enough in us to do a blog entry about our creative process. It is only with support from sites like E.E. that we become inspired to continue.

Celebify Explores What it Means to be an ArtisticPreneur

Celebfy very recently did a blog post about ArtisticPreneur.com. We think they did a good job in that they covered one of the most important concepts in the ArtisticPreneur arsenal.

Celebify Does an Article About ArtisticPreneur.com

This just in, one of our favorite blogs, “Celebify,” just came out with a post about ArtisticPreneur.com as seen on this page. Unfortunately we did not receive the interview request soon enough to send someone from our artist collective to be interviewed. Though, if you read the article, it seems as though they were able to get one of our students to speak on our behalf.

How We Feel About the Blog Post

We like the article because it because it covers an area of becoming successful as an ArtisticPreneur that we think is very important: taking a lot of little steps to then be able to do a big one. We always tell any ArtisticPreneur who works with us that you have to be careful when setting your goals neither too high or too low. Your goal must be achievable and if it is a major goal then be sure to break it down into several sub-goals.

Final Thoughts

In our program you do one sub-goal every month in conjunction with that month’s Digital Marketing Campaign. This is a point clearly explained in the current Celebify entry.

What Does BigFoot Zombie Really Want?

Celebify BigFoot Zombie
This is one of the most famous photos of BigFoot Zombie (formerly known as just BigFoot pre “Walking Dead”). Is it possible to further celebify BigFoot Zombie in relation to his new career direction? Please read this post and form your own opinion.

Is it Possible to Celebify Any Kind of Being?

Getting to the bottom of what BigFoot Zombie really wants is something best left to the creators of the website BigFootZombie.com of which we are big fans. BigFootZombie.com claims that BigFoot Zombie wants to become a rock star.

Ownership of Our Digital Domain for Success

The path to become a rock star is something right up our alley since we work with artists of all kinds and small businesses who want more customers, clients and fans.

How to Become a YouTuber in 10 Steps

Artist Steps
Are you an artist of any kind or a small business owner who wants a simple no cost way to promote yourself and your business? Then keep reading for a possible solution.

The Question

We are told by our friends at Artist Steps that they get asked almost every day the question:  “what are the best steps to become successful as an artist?”

The Challenge

The inherent difficulty here is that the term “artist” can mean any art form. And each art form has its own unique steps to take to become successful.

The Solution

Therefore there is not a one size fits all solution. That is unless you use YouTube. Becoming a YouTuber can help you with your artistic career regardless of the kind of artist you are. Why? Because YouTube is a marketing solution unto its own and is based on self promotion which is the keystone for any creative person who wants to build visibility and earn at the same time.

To learn what the 10 steps are to become a YouTuber, please visit the site  ArtistSteps.org.

Strategic Plan for ArtisticPreneur.com

ArtisticPreneur eBook
We never thought that withholding an eBook would start such a commotion. In this blog entry we explore the situation as well as come up with a possible solution.

ArtisticPreneur Behind the Scenes

Behind the scenes there has been activity in conjunction with a strategic plan that is being developed by ArtisticPreneur.com for site upgrade which could take 2 months or more to complete. What this will mean to you the user, is that eventually you will have access to educational content regarding audience engagement and development tactics.

The eBook that Started a Ruckus

One of the first educational products we created is an eBook entitled “Exclusively for ArtisticPreneurs: How to Get More New Customers, Clients and Fans in 5 Easy Steps.” Once the eBook was completed the realization set in that we could not release this eBook until the upgrades were complete on the ArtisticPreneur blog which could take over 2 months. But when we withheld the eBook some members of our extended “family” of ArtisticPreneurs made it very clear that they were upset with the choice to not release the eBook yet.

ArtisticPreneur.com Takes Responsibility for eBook Delay

In the long run we plan on having more than one PDF eBook at a time on the upgraded ArtisticPreneur site. We believe that we’ll be able to provide a unique twist on the communications process through our eBooks. We will always make certain to test the ideas out ourselves before condensing them down into a digital product. All this and more once we are able to also provide the digital tools that can be used in conjunction with eBook information.

Digital Tools and Site Upgrade

Here at ArtisticPreneur we are going as quickly as we can to create a new set of low and no cost Digital Marketing Tools as well as do upgrades to our site itself.

Waiting for Tools to Be Available

You may have seen the recent post on the Art Gush website called “Digital Tools Muse to the Rescue.” Although we feel badly for not having yet published the eBook, we believe strongly that it is best to wait until the low and no cost Digital Marketing Tools are available.

We Want Readers to Have Access to Tools if they Need Them

Of course some eBook readers are going to want to create the tools themselves, but for those who do not have that skillset we want to give them options so they can quickly implement whichever of the 5 steps that they want to.

Working Hard

Equipping the ArtisticPreneur site with Digital Download capabilities while simultaneously upgrading the ArtisticPreneur site plus eventually making 10 Digital Marketing Tools available is a lot more work than one would think.

When is it Going to Happen?

Although we are being pushed for an estimated one, we still don’t have an  ETA. And by the way ETA not only stands for Estimated Time of Arrival but is also is the seventh letter of the Greek alphabet plus ETA is the seventh star in the constellation.

Working to Visually Match our Global Vision in a Fun Way

And speaking of the constellation you may have noticed that we’ve been experimenting with new images on our homepage that better reflect the direction we are going which empowering folks to be able to appear on the global stage online. At the time of this writing you can go here to view the latest homepage image that literally contains the planet Earth. On a mobile phone you’ll only see the globe portion but on a computer you’ll get the full view which reveals that the world is on a literal stage with theater curtains.

Another Possible Plan

Here at ArtisticPreneur.com we do want to say we are extremely grateful for the interest in the eBook. One solution we have come up with is the possible release of another eBook first. In other words we would prioritize getting the store up and could put a different original eBook there. This would give us more time to work on the digital tools. Just a thought. As always please let us know what you think. Thanks!
