Networking Events

While my business is under construction I would engage in networking events. preferably ones that I organize.  These opportunities to meet people personally who are interested are great for starting business relationships and of course making impressions. Who do I invite? Local museum & archive directors, cultural promoters, historical families of artists, local businessmen and few selected people. This is where I am at an advantage because I’ve played violin for a museum director, I know a few cultural promoters and I was apprentice to artists once. You’d also find business people at golf courses and usually get invited to play the next day with them.

Feature & Promotional Events

Other probably unusual strategies
