Loyalty programs have been applied to a vast array of industries, which now extends to an exclusive art subscription. In an effort to engage with her long-time patrons, artist Ashley Longshore developed a membership model called Artgasm. This merch subscription plan gives members a chance to collect limited edition artworks and other exclusive pieces.
Based in New Orleans, the painter crafted annual subscriptions to sell artistic merchandise and handmade gifts. The art subscriptions range from $50 to $500 a year, with just 250 spots overall. This not only helps Longshore manage her output, but also adds a sense of urgency for potential clients and customers. This is an excellent example of how artists and creative types can adjust the subscription model to suit their work.
