Reflections on art and leadership

I use my art to reflect an artist and a senior manager in the financial services industry. I notice that the deeper I understand myself the more I succeed to impact others; in both art and work.

Netherland Club of New York exhibition announcement

I have tried many things to promote my exhibition; as we had a gallery for a long time ourselves, I know that people are not just coming to watch an exhibition by receiving a mail.
Some of the specific marketing items used for my NYC exhibition:
- send personalised mailing early ahead of the opening; to allow people noting it in their agenda
- send reminder personalised mail a 2 weeks ahead
- give visitors a free smalldrawing (first 30 visitors)
- create interaction by asking my audience to pick he primary artwork for exhibition; with an art work as a prize
- handout the artwork during the opening
- use social media (twitter, facebook) to mark every promotional activity
- link invitation and marketing events to a blog with (at minimum) weekly content (having around 700 visitors now monthly)
- inviting close friends and tell them it is okay to bring their friends/contacts

One of the other things is that sometimes people help you; like in this case friend Alies sent the information of the exhibition to the Netherland Club of New York; and wow, they actually placed it on the home page. Thanks Alies!

As a consequence I had quite some visitors at the opening. And one of the other artist asked me "why is half of the gallery audience in continuously in your corner?". Which is a nice indication that all the efforts paid off.

My friend Alies had approached hem and nice to see they added it to the website.
