News-Antique.com - Feb 14,2010 - With the economy in a tailspin and the art, antiques and collectibles market in tatters, dealers must do something different if they want to survive.
Prompted by the tumultuous change in the industry and the lack of education and training, the Antiquarian Group today announced the creation of AntiqueBusinessOwner.com the newest resource for the professional dealer.
The new art, antique and collectibles training website can be found at http://www.AntiqueBusinessOwner.com and there is a free newsletter available for those who are interested.
No matter what their level of experience, antique enthusiasts alike will learn such things as:
* The most profitable items to sell and where exactly to find them.
* How to distinguish between real antiques that are actually worth something and stuff that's just plain old junk. You will learn how to accurately value and price your items for maximum profit.
* How to open your own antique shop or art gallery and what exact steps to take to ensure your success.
* Ways to attract customers and market your business with free and low-cost methods.
* Dozens of other ways to make money in art, antiques and collectibles and have fun doing something you love!
The website has an active and growing antique community with price guides, valuation estimates, auction catalogs, appraisal advice, auction listings, antique news, antique tele-seminars, a private coaching group and more.
If auction houses and antique dealers are to survive in this economy, they need to adapt to the major changes in the marketplace and adjust their sales strategies accordingly. There is still plenty of business out there and by setting oneself apart will ensure not only survival but a thriving, booming business.
