What Can Artists Teach Entrepreneurs?

You may not think about connection between art and business right away. But the truth is, there are many parallels between growing a successful business and becoming a master artist. Both achievements take time, a lot of dedication, and a willingness to experiment (and fail) in order to create a masterpiece.

So what lessons can we as entrepreneurs and business leaders learn about growing a business from successful artists?

Tips to Become a Business Artist


Artists are constantly experiments and pushing the boundaries in order to achieve new greatness.

One of the best ways to grow your business is to try new things, push the limits, and break out of the box.

This could mean anything from experimenting with new marketing strategies to offering new, unique products or services.

The important thing is to not be afraid to take risks. If you’re not willing to try new things, you’ll never know what you’re capable of. If you are not willing to take risks and fail, you’ll never learn.

Continuously Hone Your Craft

Artists dedicate their lives to mastering their craft. Business owners and leaders are usually the same. But if you are not taking the opportunity to hone your craft it is hard to become a master.

As such, another important factor in growing your business is to dedicate time to hone your craft. This means becoming an expert in your field. This will allow you to provide your customers with the best possible service and products. It will also give you the knowledge you need to perform at your very best. And it will open your mind up to new possibilities.

In the end, the more you know about your industry and your craft, the better results you can produce for your customers. And you will also be more confident when interacting with customers. And the more confident you are, the more likely they are to do business with you.

Be Unique

Finally, it’s important to stand out from your competition. Copy cat art doesn’t gain recognition because it blends in. And similarly, copy cat businesses or commodity business offerings don’t stand out much either.

You want to be that stand out artist. You want people to recognize your work, company, product, etc. from a crowd.

This can be done by offering something unique or by simply being better than everyone else. For the latter, you must be able to clearly communicate this difference.

If you can find a way to set yourself apart, you’ll be well on your way to success.

Tips For Becoming a Digital Marketing Master Artist

Here are some specific tips for trying new things, honing your craft, and standing out specifically in digital marketing:

  • Experiment with different marketing strategies. There are a lot of different ways to market your business, so don’t be afraid to experiment. Try different things and see what works best for you. As always, consistently analyze and optimize vs. hope for the best.
  • Create high-quality content. High quality, effective content is king in digital marketing. If you can create high-quality content that is relevant and valuable to your target audience, you’ll be well on your way to success.
  • Be consistent. One of the most important things in digital marketing is consistency. You need to be consistent with your content creation, your social media posting, and your email marketing. If you’re not consistent, you’ll quickly lose traction and drop your “top of mind”.
  • Track your results. It’s important to track your results so you can see what’s working and what’s not. This will help you make informed decisions about your marketing strategy. As mentioned above, consistently analyze and optimize vs. hope for the best.
