It’s all in a name
I’m very fascinated with marketing and branding. Especially when I realized that artists can put their name out there and make a living by doing something they love. I do have a one unique thing that no on else has. I have a really odd, unique name that raises eyebrows every time I introduce myself. The conversation usually goes, “It was great to meet you and I didn’t catch your name?” It’s my turn to reply and wait for the extremely sweet or the crunched up face reaction. I say “my is Mundania.” You say my name like it looks: Mun-dane-ya. No matter what reaction I get, no one forgets my name. Which to me is a great thing. I do not get offended if someone butchers it. My name has been said in many different
I do own several marketing books, I read several online marketing blogs, I have emailed a few artists but this is the first time that I plan to actively go out and sell myself. I have my business cards ready along with postcards and of course my name.
Now I just have to muster up some courage to start cold calling and going door to door and just put myself out there.
