Emerging Artists we can help you succeed! Our staff is knowledgeable in all aspects of the wholesale world. We offer mentoring and guidance on a one-to-one basis. For your best success in getting established in the wholesale market, we ask that artists with little wholesale experience join us through our Emerging Artist program.
You can apply for membership at the first time rate of $468/year and are required to commit to advertising during the first quarter you are on the Marketplace. You are required to purchase an ad in our current Buyers Guide along with 6 featured ads. Our Buyer's Guide is mailed to 20,000+ buyers and you will receive a reduced rate. Our featured ads are digital ads appearing on our buyer home page and cost $22.50 each. We feel strongly about advertising, it helps set you up for success on our Marketplace.
We offer you one-on-one mentoring with our staff. We all have industry experience as professional artists and/or retailers. The more you utilize us, the more you learn. We are always happy to share our knowledge, just ask!
We also have discussion boards on our IndieMe site that you can utilize once you are accepted and have your IndieMe page published to talk to fellow artists and retailers, which can be really helpful when you are starting out.
