The Integrated Economy
is here.

Priorities have shifted for the art professional.

Dealers’ top priorities shifted markedly over 2020 to focus on existing clients, online sales, and finding ways to cut costs. Client relationships, online sales, and art fairs were their top priorities looking ahead to 2021.

The number one thing that keeps art business awake at night is meeting new clients

According to Art Basel & UBS Report, the size of a dealer’s client base shrank over 2020, with an average of 55 individual clients down from 64 in 2019. Noah Horowitz, Art Basel’s Director of Americas, mentions in the report the the lack of client nurturing has led to a decrease in the dealer client base.

The collector is the heart of the buying experience.

The biggest challenge remains in how to initially attract clients and convey quality amid an increasing volume of online offerings.

Art galleries with strong digital strategies, every single stakeholder focuses on listening to existing and prospective collectors and learning more about the art their audience wants to collect.

This helps them develop processes that enable them to better communicate with collectors, understand their needs, and make changes as needed.
