When I send my "fresh art!" texts, they don't go out to everyone at once.
To show some love to my awesome collectors, these texts are sent out in groups (but always at noon), based on which Collector Tier people fall in. As you collect more pieces, I'll move you from one tier to the next, until eventually you're first in line for new art!
This is why it's important that you tell me when you buy something off my Fine Art America/Pixels site, and for me to collect buyer's information at shows/galleries. I know a few people have bought my art from galleries or shows, and off my Print-on-Demand sites, and I never captured that information. So, if that's you--if you've got some of my work but you never hear from me--give me a shout and let me know!
Gold is the color of sunshine on water, space blankets, and mermaids' coins, and it's my highest class of collectors so far. Everyone in this category has spent $500 or more on my artwork since I started tracking.
These collectors are texted a 24-hour exclusive look at all new artwork before it is shown to the next class, as long as I have their phone number.
Silver is the color of shimmering fish, New Mexico bangles, and bullets used to take out werewolves. It's my second-highest class of collectors. Everyone in this category has spent between $200 and $499 on my artwork since I started tracking.
These collectors are texted a 24-hour exclusive look at all new artwork after the Gold Class's 24 hours, as long as I have their phone number.
$1 - $200
Bronze is the color of backlit ponies in a western sunset, ancient statues, and straight-up luxury. All other collectors fall into this class.
These collectors are texted a 24-hour exclusive look at all new artwork after the Silver Class's 24 hours have expired, as long as I have their phone number.
People who love my art and who have signed up for my art texts at my Subscribe page fall into this category if they have not yet bought any art from me.
Fans will be notified when new pieces are up for grabs after the Bronze Class's 24 hours have expired.
If I upload new art to my site at 10 PM on a Monday night, I'd schedule texts to go out at...
noon on Tuesday to Gold Tier,
noon on Wednesday to Silver Tier,
noon on Thursday to Bronze Tier,
and noon on Friday to Art Fans.
