Hi, I’m John Coxon, founder of art4u.australia and marketing and promotion wizard at BuyMyArt.
I want to share a bit of my background and experiences with you. To assure you that I have the experience to help you with your marketing and promotion.
I have been mainly self employed for most of my working life and have learned that operating a small business is hard work. Like most self employed people I prefer to do things myself rather than pay others to do them for me. Regrettably my experience has also taught me that the reality is different and that like most creatives, given the opportunity we will spend time on the things we like doing; rather than the things we should be doing! As a creative myself, I have been involved with photography for many years and also sculpt jade, bone and gemstones.
Over the years I have gained a lot of experience in developing marketing material including print, digital, media and photographics. From 2011 – 2016 I was a founding member of the New Zealand Jade Artist Society Inc, and committee member. I was responsible for the event management of two national jade artist awards and exhibitions, development of the society website and social media channels and ongoing content management. I founded art4u.australia upon our return to Australia. The impetus for doing so came from my work with other artists and the issues I witnessed them experiencing with promoting themselves and their art. For the past 15 years have operated a consulting business and during that time I have worked with a variety of arts organisations, assisting with preperation of marketing plans and planning for their future.
Now I am bringing all that experience and knowledge together under the art4u.australia and BuyMyArt banner to provide you with marketing and promotional assistance at an affordable price.
Moreover I am confident enough of my abilities to offer you a 100% guarantee of satisfaction or your money back. I want to take the risk away from you and allow you to fully explore your creative nature.
