Over the past six months, Artpromotivate has grown from a small website where I share art promotion tips to something much larger. With 8252 plus followers from combined Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Blogger, and RSS subscribers, APM has grown faster than I would ever have imagined.
I have all of you to thank for the growth of this website, which is why I have decided to dedicate this post to you.
Without readers, there is no purpose in having a blog at all. All of you give me the incentive to continually write at Artpromotivate, something which I enjoy doing very much. At APM, I post portfolio site reviews, Photoshop tutorials, art promotion tips, and much, much more. As you can see from the archive, the article count is up to 181. The majority of these I have spent countless hours and late nights writing. 40 artists have been interviewed in the artist spotlight so far, but there are still lots more to be featured! For those who are wondering when you will be featured, please be patient. I will personally let you know when your spotlight is posted.
Lately, I have been sharing all the tips I can think of to find visitors to your own websites and art blogs. There is still much to share with you here regarding this topic and others, so I will let you all know the various ways you can connect with Artpromotivate - so certain helpful posts will not be missed.
I am always interested in hearing what you have to say. So, if you have anything to share, or any suggestions at all, please leave a comment below this post.

Hi Graham, Keep up the good work!ReplyDelete
Have you done a review of the different software programs for helping artists catalogue and classify/track their work? I am thinking along the lines of: vBook, e-artist, working artist, G.Y.S.T. etc... I have seen about 10 of these on the market and have 'demo'd' about 6. It could be useful to many artists who are either thinking of going professional or just need to keep track of what they have done in an organised way. Most are geared mainly to the US market but some are more European friendly! Regards, Rob.
Thanks Rob.. Great suggestion! I will certainly have to put that on my agenda..
