In The Gallery Management Manual I detail the procedures and routines required to successfully manage an art gallery. Good gallery management results in increased profits for you. There are a few talented but disorganized art professionals who succeed. The majority of us, however, find that planning and structure leads to increased professionalism and financial rewards. A second and significant benefit of good gallery management is that it decreases stress and creates a superior selling environment for you, your staff, and your collectors. My manual makes specific suggestions relating to: organizing your client files, organizing your appointments, personnel scheduling, the physical set-up of your gallery, gallery floor procedures, effective phone contacts, exhibition protocol, mail campaign procedures, phone sales techniques, measuring the success of your program. A bonus feature of my manual is a selection of management forms that I have found useful. You may freely duplicate them for use in your gallery.About the Author:
