Artists in Maine are a dime a dozen…that is why I have made it my goal to become known to the public through social media.
“Six months ago, after I had completed enough paintings to feel prepared for anything, I set out to not only learn how to use social media, but to make it grow my art business and name recognition by a measurable amount.”
I joined Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Triberr, IGoogle, and several other social media venues. It takes a lot of time, but when you watch visits to your website quadruple in a couple of weeks, wow! That website (janetglatzmaineart.com) is now enjoying a thousand hits per month.
With thirteen shows lined up this season all over New England, I’m hoping that some of the people who attend will see my sign and go—I know her! It will undoubtedly make things easier for me if that happens. Can you see yourself diving into the social media scene? How many of you are already there? Please let me know--I'd love to hear your stories.
