Would you like to increase your brand visibility on Facebook? Joining Facebook groups for artists on Facebook might be something to think about.
“A tribe is a group of people connected to one another, connected to a leader, and connected to an idea. For millions of years, human beings have been a part of one tribe or another. A group needs only two things to be a tribe: a shared interest and a way to communicate.”
~ Seth Godin
Facebook is one of the most powerful social media networks that allow you to connect with people around the world. You can connect with family, friends and be introduced to new people that share the same interests that you have.
Facebook allows businesses to have a business page (fan page) that will allow them to engage with their customers.

Facebook Groups for Artists
What are Facebook Groups?
A Facebook Group is a page where people can share content, images and engage with others in the group.
You can start a group for artists that share your same niche, or you can join a group that is already up. This will allow you to connect with other experts in your field. You will be able to learn valuable information that will help build your business.
As you are learning you will be able to share your knowledge with new artists that join. I believe that the best way to learn is by teaching.
When you join a group, you can ask the group a question, or scan through the posts to see if your question can be answered. If you see a post from an artist with a question that you can answer, spend the time to help them out. Providing valuable information will not only help your peers but will also build your reputation as an experienced artist.
When people notice that you take the time out of your busy day to help, they will make sure to be there for you when you need some advice.
