Something is Better than Nothing

I was sitting in an art marketing meeting yesterday listening to artists ask questions about marketing. When I asked what they had in place I heard a reoccurring theme. They all were waiting to promote their websites until everything was in place. That’s like saying you’re going to wait to have a baby until you have enough money. You will never get there.

I heard the words of advice come out of my mouth, “Do it now! Something is better than nothing!” If you’re waiting on a website then make a Facebook Fan pag1044338_10151766050011369_1089078905_ne. There’s absolutely no reason you can’t start collecting names and email addresses for email marketing. Don’t have enough work to market; go paint, photograph, or create!

Then it occurred to me…I’ve been doing the same thing with this blog. I’ve been so wrapped up in trying to figure out and narrow down good content I haven’t written anything.

So, you don’t have to build Rome in a day, but you do have to start somewhere. People can’t find you if they don’t know about you. Go do one thing that is proactive today. Something is better than nothing.

    Exactly. Planning and replanning don’t produce anything but more plans…
