Tips for Success!
1. Get the word out! Publicize BOS on all your social media and be sure to hashtag #Beaconarts and #beaconopenstudios every time! Send notifications to your email lists, and share our Facebook page events!
2. Have a Price List available. Most visitors are interested in prices although they may never ask for it. Many artists make worthwhile sales during BOS!
3. Be friendly. These are your guests, you never know who the next person to walk into your studio will be!
4. SIGNAGE! Make it easy for visitors to find you especially if you're in a building with other artists.
