How to sell your artwork using social media platforms like instagram, reddit, facebook, youtube, fine art america, pinterest, and more!
Hi guys- thanks for watching. This video is the footage from a lecture I taught about selling your artwork using social media in today’s contemporary world.
My audience ranged from the 30-70+ age range and contained beginner to advanced social media users. The group also worked in a variety of art mediums.
In the lecture, I review my previous 12 month gross income routes and break down what percentage of my income came from specific social media platforms. I then discuss how each social media platform works and some tips for marketing your art on each of these platforms. Enjoy!
Please be respectful in the comments section and leave a comment if you have any additional questions from this lecture, or if you have any more helpful tips for artists trying to sell their work online. This lecture was created based on my knowledge and personal experience.
