Smile, your sale may depend on it. It may make complete sense when you stop and think about it, but it’s not always intuitive.
So stop and think about it, make it a conscientious effort and smile, your sale may depend on it.
If you don’t want to be at your own art gallery, you’re potential art collectors will see that and not want to be there either. Smiling is an easy way to show that you’re happy to be where you are. It shows that you’re friendly, easy to talk to, and in good spirits.
Smiling is key to showing passion and energy. If you don’t love the artwork you’re selling, the collectors will see that. Even if you’re not happy underneath and you wish you were somewhere else and the artwork your selling is the worst thing you’ve ever seen, smile and fake it. That’s your job.
Starting a conversation off with a genuine smile will make others instantly like you more. They’ll trust you more. They’ll be more willing to hear what you have to say. And best of all, smiling is contagious. They’ll be smiling back at you. They’ll be reflecting your energy and getting excited about the artwork.
