Selling your art is not easy and it takes a lot of hard work, dedication, and discipline. The tools that are available for artists can become overwhelming at times. With too many tools available some people might find themselves wasting valuable time. Can all of the tools available help artists build a business? Can Facebook help you sell more art? Can Instagram help you sell more art? Can Twitter help you sell more art?
Can Twitter Help You Sell More Art?
If you are looking for immediate sales, Twitter will not be your solution. What Twitter can do is build your brand over time. Building your brand will increase your sales.
Build Your Brand
If you are new to Twitter, you will want to start with the basics. You will want to spend some time learning Twitter’s unique language, how to add images, how to add content, how to link to other content, and how to engage with other people on Twitter.
After you have set up your Twitter account, you will want to spend some time looking around and observing what other people are doing on Twitter. Observe how they are communicating and engaging with others.
Once you have spent some time looking through Twitter, it is time to start building brand awareness. Just like Facebook, you will want to provide a variety of content. Provide content that will be beneficial to your followers.
Meet Influential People
Twitter is a unique social media network that allows you to easily find influential people in your field. I have met some wonderful people on Twitter that are more than willing to help others succeed. After all, we are all trying to learn and better ourselves.
When you find some people that are in your field, follow them and help spread their word. They will be happy to do the same for you. Do not be afraid to reach out to them in a private message. Most of the people that I have contacted have responded back to me. Do not take it too personal if they do not get back to you, they are as busy as you are.
Real Time News
Twitter is one of my favorite places for real-time news. You are always “in the moment” when you are on Twitter. A tweet’s lifespan is shorter than Facebook’s, but if you are looking for news that is happening right now, Twitter is the place to be.
How can “real-time news” help you sell more art?
If you map out a blueprint, you could easily announce a new piece of art that you are working on.
“I am excited to share with you soon my latest piece of art I am working on.”
“I got a lot done today. My artwork is starting to take life.”
“I was inspired by a trip to the beach for my latest creation. Do you love the beach?”
“I will be posting my newest piece of art tomorrow.”
Post your art.
If you tweet one tweet a day you will have five days of content that help create interest in what you are about to sell.
If you are thinking that you can tweet a few posts on twitter and sales will be rolling in, you are wrong. Twitter is not a place that will produce instant sales. Instead, Twitter will help you build a strong business and brand over time.
Can Twitter help you sell more art? The answer is yes.
