Artists are great at giving advice for promoting art. I have asked the question “What are your top two methods of online art promotion?” We have received some very interesting answers that may be very helpful to other artists wanting to know where to promote their art on the internet.

What follows is our third set of 10 artist interviews. If you have missed our previous artist spotlight summaries, please visit these pages:

    : Acrylic and photography

    Themes: Nature, faceless women

    Style: Abstract, expressionist 

    Art Promotion:

    Currently I enjoy promoting my art via my Facebook page and through my blog. I enjoy the convenience of Facebook and it's easily accessible means of self promoting. I really enjoy the chain effect it creates for networking, and with my incredibly tight marketing budget I love that it's free! It also just so happens to be where I discovered Artpromotivate!

    I love using my blog as well. It gives me the opportunity to express myself outside of paintings and connect with others on a more personal level. I am expanding my marketing avenues and recently have had the incredible opportunity to promote in local restaurants. As I evolve and grow as an artist I am curious to see how this answer changes.

    I like to promote my work through different social media as well as my website but the most interactive are Facebook and Twitter.

    I have built up quite a fan base now and have made friends with other wonderful artists. It has also lead to being informed of new events and opportunities coming up. I have recently made friends with talented local artist Andrew Quixley which has lead to a joint exhibition being held later this year.

  1. After reading these interviews about promoting online, my next question would be "What are the results?". There are brief mentions of meeting other artists, interest in websites, learning of events, etc. However, I wonder how social networking has proven to have an impact on artist's life. What have been the consequences of social networking?

  2. There are so many ways to promote art online; it is one of the best places to do it now. Using Google+ is definitely a way to get the word out there. Pinterest is another way for artists to showcase their work in a visual way. Blogging about the artwork, shows and updates is also an effective way to market yourself.
