Tips: 3 Key (Online) Ways to Boost Your Art Career

31 Mar

We know you’re busy making art, rocking out, making the world a better place, and loving up your community (and maybe even still working a day job or two).

But that doesn’t mean you can’t have a rockin online art presence. And make some $$ while you’re at it. Here are our latest tips for emerging artists.

  1. Invest in high quality photos of your art. If your art is incredible but your photo quality stinks, no one will know how badass your art is! (If you can’t pay a photographer full price, try finding a new photographer who will swap photography for art!)
  2. Sell your art 24-7. Have a web page where your fans can buy your art even while you’re creating more!
  3. Befriend the right social media—for you! Find the platform(s) you feel comfortable with–and excited about! (You don’t need to be on every platform; you just need to be consistent and authentic on the ones you’re on.)

Peace,

    […] Have a solid web site that showcases only your very best—and most current—pieces. Your web site shouldn’t be an archive of everything you’ve ever done. Use it to highlight just the very best of your talents. If you wouldn’t put it in a show today, don’t put it on your site. (See additional tips on making an art web site that ROCKS.) […]
