Working from Home by Victoria Stanway

If you’re a budding artist keen to get your art noticed in the social sphere, it’s highly advisable to grow your presence on the leading social media channels. Social media can help art fans to discover your work and provides you with a forum to engage with customers directly.

If you aren’t yet a Twitter account holder, here are four great reasons to start right now.

Showcase your art

With Twitter, you’ll have another opportunity to showcase your collections and latest pieces to the world, so don’t miss an opportunity to show everyone exactly what you’re capable of.

Setting up a Twitter profile takes just a few minutes and gives you the potential to connect with millions of people with similar interests, so what are you waiting for? All you need is a few images of your work and a computer or smartphone to get started.  Try it now and you’ll soon see how quickly you can build up a network of followers.

Participate in trending topics

Every day you’ll notice something new that’s trending on Twitter. Trending topics are those which are grabbing the attention of Twitter users worldwide.

Not only will these trending topics give you something to sink your teeth into, but they are also followed intently by millions of people and therefore give you a better chance of getting your art noticed if you can jump aboard any art-related Tweets quickly.

Keeping up to date

As well as allowing you to showcase your work, Twitter is also a great way of keeping up to date on new developments in the art world.

From new artists that are gaining notoriety to record-breaking purchase prices for artwork, this is a bite-sized, accessible and up-to-the-moment way to stay up to date with relevant news and what’s garnering attention in the art space.

Make new connections

If you’re serious about making it in the art world, then you’ll need to make the right connections.

Networking in person is seen as a little old fashioned now that we have the technology to do things a little differently. If you want to connect with galleries, art houses and collectors, you can do so from the comfort of your sofa with the click of a button.

Be sure to follow other artists too as they can often help you find out about new gallery openings near you and can offer great support and encouragement to other fledgeling artists.
