Top 5 Reasons to Use Twitter to Promote Your Art Business
Twitter is here to stay! Twitter will soon be approaching more than 100 million users.
Large and small corporations have discovered that Twitter is great way for them to help
market their products and services, help them with their company branding and the
astute companies have also found that Twitter is a great way to enhance their
customer service program. Are you using Twitter to help market, brand and promote
your art business?
If you are using Twitter, you are way ahead of the curve and if not here are the top 5
reasons why you should be using Twitter to market your artwork:
Twitter is a great way to drive traffic to your website. By making contacts
(followers) within your business and with your target market you will be able to instantly
connect with them, develop a relationship and have those individuals visit your art
Every time you Tweet a message, connect either with a follower or Retweet someone’s
message you are drawing attention to yourself, your art and to your website. In
addition, we now have the major search engines picking up real time Tweets as well! It
is instant exposure for the artist!
By Tweeting and Retweeting the artist is able to be exposed to more people
within the art market place. By Retweeting, the artist is able to develop and spread
their influence in a very short period of time with a large group of people. Connecting
like this was almost impossible to do, as little as 5 years ago! Twitter is a wonderful
medium for artists to announce projects, openings, sales or any other event that is
related to that artist’s work.
If done correctly and over time, Twitter will help an artist to develop their brand.
What do I mean by correctly? Do not use Twitter for social, political and special
interest purposes. Use Twitter for your art business only. Focus all of your “Twitter
attention and time” on relevant subjects of interest to your target market!
