Spotlight falls on a marketer, artist and photographer who are the ‘added extras’

Working as a dealer can mean long, solitary hours but it can also be a collaborative pursuit. Here, ATG highlights the work of three from around that trade whose work brings them into regular contact with the wonderful world of art and antiques dealers.

1 The marketer

Online presence is ever-more important and getting the right digital mix can be a challenge. Marketing consultant Gini Coates of Gini Coates Studio works with antiques dealers around the UK trade to define and update their presentation on and offline.

According to Coates, the key to standing out among a wide field of dealers is building a strong brand and having a solid digital strategy.

“Branding isn’t just a logo but the entire attitude of a business,” she says. “It should be reflected through all media, digital and print including the language used to communicate.”

Sometimes, though, it’s easier to see strengths and weaknesses from the outside, which is where she comes in. Winner of the New Designer of the Year in 2004 and ’05, she went on to study at the Royal College of Art. Now a LAPADA-approved specialist, she counts Butchoff Antiques, Wick Antiques, Hatchwell Antiques and most recently Howard Walwyn among her clients.
