A tagline is a phrase which is memorable.  It’s used to help understanding of what a company does.

As a talented person, you can become very creative about this.  As an example, Roxy (vocal coach) from Voicercise sings her tagline which is super effective.

Here’s some tips to ensure that your model is seen with a good opinion rather than an unfavorable one:

* SURVEYS.  Before going into the huge expense of investing into large amounts of art prints, CDs, DVDs and so on, survey!  Find out if what you are offering is what is wanted, what quantity and how much would your public be willing to pay.  Your Facebook Friends are good people to survey.
* HAPPINESS.  Keeping your clients happy doesn’t mean give away your wares or services for free.  Happiness to a client means shipments rapidly sent, tracking numbers that you can email to the client, extra thank you notes, holidays cards, newsletters with information and deals, etc.  It’s really and truly caring about your clients.
* CONTINUOUSLY GET THE WORD OUT.  Be willing to talk about your newest artistic creations, comments, your successes, your inspiration, your projects, your dreams and so on.  Use social media, your newsletter and be willing to find new ways to get more people aware of your good works.
