You Need a Negotiator
J'net has negotiated thousands of deals, so why not use her as your secret weapon, behind the scenes or upfront, to get the most from your deal. If you have little or no negotiation experience, this is an area that it literally 'pays' to have J'net handle. She is also a quick study and has no problem jumping in at any point to finish the job. J'net is also known for explaining every nuance, so if you are inclined in the future negotiate for yourself, you pay for her services once and gain the knowledge to try it for yourself later.
You Need a Licensing Plan
There is more to a licensing plan than meets the eye. While it doesn't have to be long, it needs to be smart and well-thought-out using industry information to create a strategy and order that will maximize your art's potential. The tactics need to provide opportunities to compete in today's marketplace and leverage your success at multiple points. This is how you build a business - success, plus leveraged success equals greater success and income. Get your unique strategy, implementation plan and tips without breaking the bank. J'net can help with execution or turn you on to affordable ways to create a profitable business.
You Need to Build a Brand or Leverage Your Brand
Maybe you need help establishing a brand or leveraging the one you've got. These projects may take longer or be on-going. The best way to start is with a SmartStart Session, so J'net can determine your exact needs. In the session, you will also get ANSWERS. Lots of them. In fact, she finds that many clients learn they know how to or can do more on their own than they expected. That may be a terrific bonus for some, or you may prefer to pay and have the job done. We want to provide options that meet all budget needs. One thing is for sure, whether you have an existing business that needs jet propelling, or you have a concept that is on the ground floor, J'net can tackle any problem you put in front of her.
You Need a Marketing Plan
Licensing is just one part of a company's overall marketing plan; it's one business model for getting product out into the marketplace. So you need to think carefully about your entire marketing plan, not just the licensing components. J'net always includes marketing advice in her licensing plans and consultations, but you may need a larger plan to integrate all the marketing elements to meet your needs.
Consulting Services from J'net Smith and All Art Licensing
Most of our service products are oriented to give you the flexibility of having the work done for you as 'consulting' -- or teaching you to do the work yourself, which is 'coaching.' For example, the Intensive Time Packages and Intensive Coaching Sessions work well for both Short and Long Term Business Development. Or you may need something specific to meet your specific needs. J’net will listen and give you her thoughts on what type of program will give you the results you are looking to generate. Proposals are available upon request, and fees are reduced for long term commitments.
This session is recommended as a starting point for all types of creative businesses and individuals. Prior to the two-hour private phone strategy Session, you will be asked to complete a comprehensive business questionnaire specifically designed to prepare both you and J’net for the session. It’s important for J’net to know exactly where you are with your art and business, as well as your background, needs and goals.
The SmartStart Session provides you with a ton of new knowledge - information on what to do, why to do it and how to do it, providing a much clearer vision of the exact steps you need to achieve your licensing business goals. J'net combines her sharing of knowledge and guidance with her natural exuberance, imparting the motivation and the realization to achieve your dreams! This Session also allows J'net and the artist and/or business to evaluate each other thoroughly and to determine the viability of any future relationship.
J'net's SmartStart Sessions are a true combination of coaching and consulting, as she determines exactly what is needed; a very involved, intensely informative, goal achieving, and enjoyable process. Unlike many agents and coaches, J'net is very free and giving of her information and is more than happy to teach you the industry "secrets." While these Sessions are usually utilized before accepting any long-term project or coaching arrangement, for the reasons stated above, we are also always open to discussing your specific situation and needs.
