{pricing} 46 random tips to help you price your stuff

{pricing} 46 random tips to help you price your stuff | For Art's Sake-1 | Scoop.it

pricing. seriously, i think this is one of the most challenging parts of
building your own little biz.

last week i recommended an ebook called earn what you deserve. this book  does not give you a magic formula for figuring out your pricing. what it does do is tackle the underlying issues you need to consider before you can really charge what you are worth.

let me say that again. no pricing advice in the world is going to help you
if you do not have a sense of the value of your work.

earn what you deserve is going to help you do that. with it, you consider
what it means to be a biz owner, tackle your own beliefs about money and finances, figure out the true cost of doing business, look at new ways of marketing and selling, and start to build your own sense of value in your work and your product. once you have done that, then what?

well it is time to look at what you have been charging for your product. as
promised i have compiled a list of tips, advice and strategies from all
over the place that may help you with this. this is not a step-by-step
formula for figuring out your price. (if i ever find the elusive, magic
step-by-step formula for pricing i will share it immediately!) what i have
done is a lot of research into different strategies and taken the bits and
pieces that make sense to me and apply them to what i do. so i am sharing those bits and pieces with you here.

first, let’s get your head in the game...

Artist Creates Self-Portraits Wearing Burqas Made of Candy

Artist Creates Self-Portraits Wearing Burqas Made of Candy | For Art's Sake-1 | Scoop.it
Years ago, a young lady named Behnaz Babazadeh showed up to her school in the United States wearing a burqa. Her mother had told her she didn’t have to wear it and even feared the other children would mock her for it, but the child likes her hijab and decided to wear it anyway. When she arrived at the doors, the security guard told her she would not be allowed inside unless she removed the fabric from around her face.

Emma Rister's curator insight, March 22, 12:33 PM

"Years ago, a young lady named Behnaz Babazadeh showed up to her school in the United States wearing a burqa. She moved to the states at the age of seven, and in some ways, the burqa allowed her to feel in some small way connected to her childhood in Afghanistan and Iran, where girls typically start wearing the scarf at four years old. Many years have elapsed, and Babazadeh is now a photographer, but that moment will remain imprinted in her mind forever.  She uses nets, plastic sheets, and other invisible tools to sew her outfits, which can get quite messy after up to four hours of shooting.  Women, explains the artist, have used the headscarf to signify their social status for generations. For many, it’s still a means of personal expression."

Ashley Gilbertson's 'Bedrooms of the Fallen'

Ashley Gilbertson's 'Bedrooms of the Fallen' | For Art's Sake-1 | Scoop.it
Bedrooms of the Fallen was conceived in 2007 as a way to memorialise soldiers and marines who died as a result of conflict in Iraq. It was expanded to include casualties from Afghanistan in 2009 and the project is ongoing. Gilbertson visited families in America, the UK and Europe who have kept their children’s bedrooms intact. Gilbertson wanted people to realise that there was more to just the names and ranks of people who had died in a foreign place, he wanted people to feel the loss as one of their own.

Planting Frida Kahlo's Botanical Paradise in the Bronx

Planting Frida Kahlo's Botanical Paradise in the Bronx | For Art's Sake-1 | Scoop.it

"Plants and flowers appeared throughout Frida Kahlo’s paintings, and although interpreting her art regularly evokes her biography of illness, injury, pain, and tumultuous love, the first exhibition to examine her work from a botanical perspective opens this week at a garden. Constructing a tribute to the flora of her Casa Azul home in Coyoacán south of Mexico City, which she shared off and on with muralist Diego Rivera, the New York Botanical Garden (NYBG) in the Bronx pairs this assembly of cacti, succulents, perennials, and other leafy specimens from her garden with a small exhibition of 14 drawings and paintings."

 

Frida Kahlo: Art, Garden, Life opens at the New York Botanical Garden (2900 Southern Boulevard, The Bronx) on May 16 and continues through November 1.

A colony or cloud of bats hangs upside down in this illustrated gravure print from 1887 entitled "Wonderful Flying Foxes."

We've lovingly scanned the antique illustration and reproduced it for you as a giclee print -- on vintage paper, to keep the feel of the original.

What's more, it is already matted and ready to insert inside any 5 by 7 inch fame.

The matting is in a rich maroon or burgundy shade in a matte finish, which really compliments the tanned old paper.
