Special Art Radar summer offer for art sellers – limited time only

Posted by artradar on August 4, 2010

Are you selling  contemporary art this summer?

Whether you are a dealer, an artist or a collector if you plan to sell art this summer you need to read this post

Art Radar is proud to bring you this exclusive offer with ArtTactic

It is a challenge selling contemporary art today – prices are all over the place and the market has never been more volatile. And with  more competition every day – new art fairs, more galleries and more choice for collectors, things are not going to get easier any time soon. It has never been more important to maximise profits in the upturns to see you through the downs.

Are you confident that you are setting the best price for the pieces you are selling?

  • If prices are too high, you might miss out on making the sale
  • If your prices are too low –  you could be charging more and benefiting from extra profits. Profits you might well need if there is another downturn.

Setting prices is a balancing act which can mean the difference between large profits or depressing losses.

But help is at hand……

Imagine having a sixth sense about the confidence level of buyers in your market. Picture how it would feel to have an inner certainty about the direction the market is moving. Conjure up in your mind the sense of assurance you would have as you set prices supported by your new powerful insights into your market.

Armed with ArtTactic knowledge see yourself benefiting not only from setting prices more confidently but also being able to squeeze a bit more with your negotiation skills.

Clients are often happy to pay more if they are given objective evidence supporting prices. Imagine you and your staff negotiating persuasively and with assurance, justifying the prices you are asking convincingly armed with the market data you need.

Well that sounds great, you might be thinking. But lets be practical, who has the time to collate and assimilate market research?  And even if it has all been done  for you, it is still hard to find the time to read and absorb it. In answer we can assure you that  one of the most valuable features about ArtTactic is that they produce research in a simple, quick to read, digestible format. Ideal for your needs.

Arttactic reports are quick to read and easy to assimilate.

and will help you to…………

  • Understand the market in seconds using simple graphs and headlines
  • Acquire a “sixth sense” about market confidence to support you when you set or change prices
  • Answer your clients’ questions with assurance armed with facts
  • Negotiate with clients more persuasively, being  able to justify and explain your prices to clients
  • Gain your clients’ trust – they will turn to you, refer contacts to you and buy from you because they have faith in your expertise

Now you might be thinking…yes I would like this help. But my section of the market is different. I do not want generalisations and information about the market overall. And I do not want large reports which I have to battle through to find the data which is useful to me. I am only interested in my subsets of the market.   Can ArtTactic really give me the in-depth knowledge that I want about my section of the market?

ArtTactic produces specialist reports, relevant to you…

Another priceless benefit of ArtTactics reports is that you can buy data piecemeal at low individual prices or you can buy it all in a package at a discounted offer. Either way you just buy the information you want and need –  incredibly good value and directly relevant too.

Here are the latest regional and specialist up-to-date reports available to buy now:
