Hello, my name is Alexander Weiskopf and I am the founder of artContraire.
As you have already seen from the name artContraire, we want to break new ground in the art trade with our company. It is particularly important for us to promote young artists who want to challenge these new paths. However, they often find it difficult to find the right distribution partner for their unique works. With this problem, artContraire wants to help and offer those special artists a unique network, which is represented with partners around the world. It is important for us to create a win-win situation for both sides. By this we do not mean that we want to bind our artists to us by barter contracts that cut their freedom and, above all, their creativity. We want to do a lot more to support these young artists as much as possible and to convince them through our success and thus commit to artContraire.
Have you become curious? Do you want to become a part of artContraire? Then send a description and a selection of your pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org or call me directly at +436641643850. As we at artContraire also want to get to know the person behind the works, we would also like to hear a little about yourself and your motivation for the art. We will gladly look at your works and decide if we can create a win-win situation for both sides.
To explain to you – the artist – in detail how you can profit from us and we can profit from you in return, I would like to introduce you our transparent sales concept below.
Model of Cooperation
Model of Cooperation
My sales model is commission-based. The contracts do not contain an exclusive commitment to my art company. In this way, you as an artist do not have any risks or of long-term commitments. I do not want to put shackles on you, but instead I want to convince you with my success and my sales model. Our cooperation should be based on mutual trust and transparency, covered by clear contractual agreements.
My sales concept is based on an online model. Art sales can be processed directly online. By eliminating the spatial barrier, we simplify the purchase and also reach an international audience. In collaboration with local sales partners, we aim to expand the customer base of our artists. Depending on the artistic direction, the exploitable potential lies in different target groups. We identify the target group, look into it individually and, this way, get the optimum out of the sales opportunities.
The success of my young company lies in the innovative and timely concept. From the commission I earn also pay my employees in the fields of public relations, marketing and advertising. These advertising measures for your person will also be to your long term benefit as an artist. We put a focus on new media and the latest marketing methods of the Internet. Through Google, Facebook, and in the mainstream less known advertising platforms, we reach and open up new financially strong target groups.
The Personal Element
Despite all the optimization on the latest distribution channels and new media, I do not want the personal element in the way we deal with art to be lost. On my website it is hardly to overlook that my person is in the center of the sales concept. Just as much I would like to be a reliable partner for my customers. I am available for my customers at any time, advise them during the purchase and establish contacts between the customer and you, the artist. If it is requested by the artist, we also offer the customer a “Meet and greet” in the studio of the artist. This regularly creates new sales opportunities for my partners.
