A client recently relayed that she used to skip out on family Thanksgiving as she was stuck in her gallery preparing for the Miami art fairs. She slogged away putting together Dropbox files of images and captions, pdfs for each artist with available works, configuring work labels, and formatting price lists. She spent hours culling through client lists to figure out who needed VIP pases. Since adopting Primer, her pre-fair routine is a quick two step.
First, it takes a just few minutes to compile a list of collectors she has seen in past years and send them emails offering complimentary fair passes. Second, she quickly creates her art fair presentation page by highlighting the works being brought to the fair. Now she can make pdfs of booth previews, work labels, price lists and more in mere seconds, all ready to email, print, or save. Once in Miami, no prep is required to use Primer to show available works not onsite at the fair – it’s always ready at her finger tips. Plus she has sent all her follow ups and invoices before she leaves the booth for evening events. Finally, as she departs Miami, she can relax knowing all contacts, notes, offers and sales are complete and archived in Primer. She even has reminders set up to follow up with potential clients in the new year. Now she no longer misses her dad’s pumpkin pie or potential sales opportunities.
