Distribution: Tools To Turn Creativity Into Income
20th November 2007 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Venue: CC Club
This seminar comprises part of CIDA’s Digital Women’s Club initiative. This event is open to all, with engagement particularly encouraged from underemployed women (and subject to certain criteria being met). Please note that pre-event registration is essential to access this FREE event and that booking for the event can ONLY be made through the Digital Women’s Club website.
Transforming creativity into cold, hard cash has never been easy – ask Henri Rousseau, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart or Hans Christian Anderson if you want proof. All of them died in poverty, despite the brilliance of their work. In their day, the alternative to starvation for struggling artists was to find a wealthy patron such as the Duke of York to provide the income required to sustain their existence. But if your links with nobility aren’t exactly solid, then you might prefer to look to the Internet to find ways of earning some reward for your artistic endeavours.
Push-button publishing and easy web tools that simply take a couple of clicks for even the least technical user to install onto their online place of business are opening up new models for distribution and sales. Anyone can become an e-bay entrepreneur, and the online auction house and the dozens of alternatives springing up every day have the potential to make it easier for artists to make money. They might also make things more complicated by giving too many choices, with conflicting terms of service and staying up to date with what’s on offer adding to your difficulties.
With this in mind we have created a showcase of some of the best choices currently available. Representatives from the world of music, publishing, images and advertising will demonstrate their wares and advise on alternatives. If you come away inspired, it could well be the best £0 you never spent.
There will also be an opportunity to view some of the work/portfolios of the Digital women’s Club members. Food, drink and networking complete the package and make this an unmissable event.
