Deciding to promote artists.

Posted on January 5, 2014 at 2:55pm 0 Comments

I use to do marketing for a small business who sold garden equipment.  I own a commercial laser color printer, a 24" poster printer, a canon xl2 camera, a canon xsi digital camera, vinyl cutters and a heat press. These tools can cut costs  for promoting artist  doing shows or exhibitions.  I do all the editing for videos.  I am looking for honest feedback on how I can approach this career change.  Thank u
