Should Artists Lower Their Price in this Market?
Pricing is always an issue for artists. In times like these, it is tempting to lower prices in hopes that we will sell our work more easily. These two articles talk specifically about Free; however, they have sparked my thoughts on pricing and how not to "sell out" our integrity. What do you think? Are you lowering your prices? Are you giving stuff away for free? Or are you finding ways to add value? I'd love to hear your thoughts and ideas.
