Design both e-mail and direct marketing pieces to reflect your website. For the printed piece contact your post office with your design to verify, where they add the barcode. Using clear envelopes will protect your promo piece (www.clearbags.com)
Include 1-3 images on the promo to show your work. For an e-mail campaign design a promo piece in Dreamweaver or PhotoShop. The most important thing is no more than 650 pixels wide (about 72 dpi) - length isnt that important.
Your goal is to present images to buyers via e-mail, direct mail, portfolio showings and a Web site. The Fresh List goal is to provide you with cost-effective and time efficient. Good organization creates success, and Fresh Lists adds to it with targeted mailing lists updated every 90 days. Include 73% personal e-mails.

The best days for sending e-mails are Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Monday they are too busy and Friday they are looking forward to the weekend. Months to avoid all together June, July and December.
A FRESH LISTS marketing tip: Mail the same promo card/ e-mail to different people at the same agency over a period of time. Its far more effective than one mass mailing because the cards/ emails stay around the agency longer. They have an extended marketing life.
This is what your promotion schedule might look like:
As you can see you will reach creative buyers 7 times a year. It is more efficient
than sending one or two mass mailings a year. Also contact buyers to set up appointments
or for portfolio drop off. PhotoShop: Design the promo in PhotoShop then attach
it in the MaxBulk program or upload the JPEG to your website. The image will appears
instantly when the e-mail is opened - HTML required and is supplied free by FRESH

PHOTOHGRAPHIC ART MARKET
Stephen Perloff, Editor
ABOUT THE PHOTO REVIEW The Photo Review is a critical journal of national scope and international readership. Publishing since 1976, the Photo Review covers photography events throughout the country and serves as a central resource for the Mid-Atlantic region. With incisive reviews, exciting portfolios, lively interviews, the latest in books and exhibitions, The Photo Review quarterly journal has earned a reputation as one of the best serious photography publications being produced today.
Writers --- including A.D. Coleman, Stephen Perloff, Shelley Rice, Peter Hay Halpert, Barbara L. Michaels, Jean Dykstra, and Mark Power --- have weighed in on subjects as varied as the posthumous publication of work by Diane Arbus, women in photography, the growth of digital media, the historical movement from Pictorialism into Modernism, etc., etc. In his ongoing series, "The Censorship Diaries," Editor Stephen Perloff was in the forefront in covering the controversy over funding for the NEA and censorship of the arts.
The Photo Review has earned a reputation for lucid and incisive writing aimed at an intelligent and informed audience, but free of the cant and jargon that infects much contemporary writing about art. Thus, both arts publications and the popular press have looked to us for interpretations of what's happening on the photography scene. Articles have been reprinted in such publications as Afterimage, To, Photography in New York, American Photo, and others.
Editor Stephen Perloff, a respected writer, educator and photographer, has been interviewed for the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, the Philadelphia Inquirer, the Bucks County Courier Times, and Art Matters. He has received two critic's fellowships from the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts.
"I'm a big fan of The Photo Review!" Jerry Uelsmann, Photographer

An operation like your "Art Under Attack" issue [Summer 1989], inlcuding The Photo Review's national competition, elevates your whole operation from regional to national and international importance." The late Lou Stoumen, Photographer

Caring For Your Art
A Guide for Artists, Collectors, Galleries and Art Institutions
By Jill Snyder
Colors That Don’t Age, Wraps That Don’t Scratch
Jill Snyder Shares the Latest Techniques and Tips that Bring Eternal Life to Any Artwork
Art history is full of stories about artworks that have been destroyed due to accidents or neglect—yet we rarely talk about those millions of artworks which, thanks to proper care and handling, have survived throughout centuries. In Caring For Your Art, Jill Snyder explains the secrets of displaying, transporting, storing, and insuring art objects that help extend the life of paintings, prints, photography, and sculpture against all possible odds. New to this edition are interviews with key figures from the art insurance, art risk management, and conservation industries that have been conducted by Ann Albano, registrar of the Cleveland Center for Contemporary Art.
Concerns about preserving an artwork ideally start before a work is created or put on display: What degree of humidity can a studio or show room have? How will the exciting new plastic material behave once the color has dried out? With Caring For Your Art, those involved with the creation and distribution of art will be able to choose locations, creative material, supports, framing equipment and wrapping material without running into unpleasant surprises.
Whether an artwork remains in one place or is constantly shipped from one exhibit to another, numerous hazards need to be taken into account. Caring For Your Art helps caretakers of art objects to create a seamless chain of protective measures that ensures optimum care of the artwork under any imaginable circumstance.
Written by a curator and art aficionado who has been an expert on art preservation for many years, Caring For Your Art takes into account the latest advances in creative materials and techniques, preservation technology, and insurance requirements. The book will prove an invaluable companion to every artist, curator, gallery owner, or collector concerned about the protection of his art objects, and includes
* cutting-edge ways to limit environmental hazards
* the latest techniques for creating, packing, transporting, and storing art
* recommendations for the use of acid-free materials
* using manual and computer systems for record keeping
* checklists that help identify gaps in the safekeeping process
* easy-to-grasp illustrations of complex technical problems
Caring For Your Art can be found in better book stores, or it can be ordered directly from the publisher by calling: 1-800-491-2808, or order online from the Allworth catalog page where you will also find a full description, a table of contents, and reviews.
