Artists: How to Get Your Art Re-tweeted

As odd as that headline may sound, if you use twitter you understand that opening a Twitter account and tweeting the link to your site probably isn’t enough.

To make your tweets stand out, add an image of your art to your tweet. This is easy to do using TweetDeck.  TweetDeck started as an independent platform but was purchased by Twitter around 2013. Twitter has since expanded TweetDeck calling it “the most powerful Twitter tool for real-time tracking, organizing, and engagement.”

Now that you’ve written your tweet, added your link and image, include a hashtag to get your tweet in a thread. Try using these hashtags: #art #artforsale #buyartonline #artmarket #paintings #oilpaintingsforsale #prints #drawing #installation #photography #artcollectors #sellartonline #collage #mixedmedia #Giclee and others. Use the Twitter search box to find others. Use hashtags such as #RT and #shoutouts to put your art tweet into non-art categories– which may help you reach new buyers.

To get your tweets retweeted to thousands, simply use the hashtags #artistmarket and #artistnews in your tweet– Artist Marketing Resources retweets your tweets from those hashtag threads.

The organization Artifizz tweets as @artifizzorg using a lot of hashtags in their tweets.  You can find many more art news organizations and publications here.

Artist Marketing Resources retweets our reader’s tweets from the hashtag threads #artistnews and #artistmarket. Add one or both hashtags #artistnews and/or #artistmarket to your tweet. Your tweet will appear in our thread and  we will retweet. It’s that easy.

For artists who have an Etsy Shop, EtsyRetwt @EtsyRetwt makes these offers– “Want a shoutout? Just retweet my last tweet and I’ll personally promote your @Etsy shop- it’s that easy! Use the hashtag #etsyretwt to get more views on your tweets! I re-tweet a lot so if you’re following me, I’ll follow you!”

If you have fewer than 1,000 followers for your Twitter account, you can use services such as WeFollow to find and build followers.

Artist Marketing Resources follows and re-tweets. Follow us on Twitter @TransArtGuide @Artozon @Transmediartist  Use the hashtags #ArtistMarket and #artistnews to get your tweets re-tweeted. And don’t forget to share by re-tweeting our tweets too!
