Are you feeling overwhelmed with all of the social media networks? Does it seem like every time you turn on the computer you read about the next best social media site to promote your artwork? Social media is a great way to build your business if it is done the correct way. In this article you will discover why you might want to have your art business on Twitter.
“We have technology, finally, that for the first time in human history allows people to really maintain rich connections with much larger numbers of people.”

Art Business on Twitter Benefits
When you are starting a business it is very hard to stay patient. You work hard every day and you would like to see results for your efforts. It takes a lot of hard work to build a successful business. If you are focused with your goals and willing to learn it will be here before you know it, but you will need to stay patient.
You already know the importance of social media marketing. Do you know how use the social media sites to enhance your business? If you do not have a full understanding on social media marketing you will find yourself wasting valuable time with little or no return.
Before you start marketing on social media platforms you will want to have a marketing plan set up. Then you will want to decide on one or two social media sites to start with.
Learn everything that the social media sites have to offer. Every task that you perform should guide you to your end goal. You do not want to just throw things up against the wall and hope they stick.
Choose Two Social Media Sites
To start your social media marketing you will want to start with one or two sites to work with. If you try to market with all of the social media networks you will be running yourself too thin. There will be no way that you will be able to spend the time necessary on all of the sites to make it productive.
Pick one or two and learn everything that you need to, so you can build your business. Sometimes more is not always better. You might hear some people say that you should use all networks to promote your business. I feel that you will never be able to learn what the sites have to offer for you to fully market your brand.
Once you have a social media network running smoothly, you will be able to then start marketing on a different site.

Twitter Stands Alone
Twitter was announced to us on March 21, 2006 and is still growing strong.
307 million monthly active twitter users were reported in 2015. – Statista
In my opinion Twitter stands alone from the other social media networks. If you are running a business I highly recommend Twitter being one of the first social media networks to build and promote your business.
This is the only network where you can find real time news on anything that you are interested in. Not only can you build your brand to new customers but you will be introduced to other business people that are sharing their knowledge.
Twitter is a marketing tool and learning tool all built in one.
