Building Business Mastery as an Artist — with Chase Jarvis
November 14th, 2013 - 17 Comments
A couple years ago, I did a 90-minute interview with Chase Jarvis, one of the world’s best artists and photographers. It’s free and it contains some of my best, most hard-hitting material on psychology, persuasion, and marketing, so I hope you check it out sometime.
I intentionally did this video for free because, while I keep most of my best material in my premium courses, sometimes I want to share what I’ve learned with a wider audience. I also hid at least 7 secret strategies in the video. Can you spot them?
One of the cool things about running this business is I get to bring you the best of the best — authors, world-famous artists, Olympic trainers, psychology experts…and on and on.
When I meet the best, I always want to know how they did it. I believe the #1 person in a market knows 100x what the #2 person knows. They’ve been to the top of the mountain, and they can share the path to getting there.
And today, I get to do exactly that with one of the masters. This time, I asked Chase Jarvis into my studio and sat him down to ask the toughest questions on mastery, expertise, and becoming the best.
How do you stand out when there are a thousand other artists who would take your place for 1/10 the price? How do you get hired by Lady Gaga, how do you charge hundreds of thousands of dollars for one photo, how do you hang out the side of a helicopter and get paid for it?
How do you become the best?
Chase isn’t just a photographer and an artist. He’s also the founder of CreativeLIVE, a company I was so impressed with, I invested in it.
So I invited Chase into my studio to explain the intricate psychology behind positioning, marketing and selling your art (whether you’re a writer, an analyst, even a marketing coordinator, we all “sell” our services every day) — including how you too can become highly-paid and sought after in your field.
Here’s a sneak peek:
In the full interview, you’ll learn:
- How to relate to prospective clients so that they immediately move you to the top of their “mental list”
- How to gather the courage to break out on your own and start working as an artist
- A subtle technique to determine instantly whether you’ve charged the right price for your work (the client won’t even know it’s happening)
- The “magic words” that buyers say when they are really interested in hiring you
- How to position yourself as high-value so that you get paid what you’re worth– even if you’re still working on your technical skills
- How to know whether you should launch your business or you should get more experience first
- A simple positioning trick that will make even a premium price point trivial and bring clients rushing to your door
