How will you benefit….?

Knowledge is power. Well the Rothschilds certainly thought so – did you know that they valued the power of fast reliable information so highly that they developed their own privately-owned system of horseback couriers which raced back from various corners of the world to bring them information first… they built a fortune using this information.

Knowledge is just as powerful today. Knowledge of the art market can benefit you in profound ways too.

You are going to learn QUICKLY in an easily digestible format, what the market is doing and this will help you

  • Set prices for art – feel more confident about whether to adjust prices up or down. You will know the most up to date information about how confident buyers are which helps you to know whether it is time to raise or discount prices
  • Negotiate better – you will have up to date facts to support your negotiating position when buying or selling art– by knowing important changes and trends for example whether your section of the market is trending up or down sharply or flattening off – you can justify your price more convincingly helping you to squeeze extra profits from a transaction.
  • Gain valuable knowledge “at a glance” – although it has taken substantial resources for ArtTactic to collate the data and their considerable experience to analyse it, it is brought to you in easy-to-digest format of simple-to-read graphs and highlighted facts and headings saving you time and energy.
  • Advise others better – your new understanding and insights will give you knowledge useful for advisory work
  • Network and attract valuable contacts – clients, curators, collectors will naturally come to you to hear your valuable expertise and will refer others to you as someone who has reliable trustworthy insights.
  • Maximise profits – by understanding where the market is and where it is heading you will be able to know when to raise or lower prices helping you to make sure that you don’t miss out on a sale by over-pricing or miss out on profits by under-pricing. You will have relevant information at your fingertips helping you set prices which will maximize profits.
