First, I developed my brand and have now created Aquart (aqua art geddit...), and am slowly but surely building my social media presence to continue to share my work as far and wide as possible.
Second, I am currently working on creating a website Aquart.com.au where people will be able to purchase my printed images moving forward.
Third, I began to learn all I could about crowd funding, as I know of a few people who have had success in launching businesses, products and realising personal dreams via the power of many people contributing to achieve a substantial goal. The more I thought about it the more I realised it was an idea worth exploring …and that I could offer something nice in return.
So I’ve put more hours than I care to count into coming up with a great crowd-funding campaign that will help me achieve my goals, and will reward those who support me financially with their very own piece of Aquart, created with the very equipment they helped me to purchase…which I feel has a nice full circle-ness to it!
Oh, and did I mention that anyone supporting this campaign will be getting their art work at 25% off what my retail price will be once I start selling them + it'll be shipped right to your door wherever you are in the world!
