Artists: 3 tips for landing press, and artist Karen Fitzgerald’s Video Interview Advice

blogoffonplaystartbuttons

An article on 3 tips for landing press for your business has circulated on the web this week. As a blogger, I like the first tip in the article:

1. Start small and targeted. Connect with the bloggers that cover your industry and build a rapport with them. You’ll get on their radar, and if they choose to write about you, their story could get picked up by a major publication, leading to even more coverage.

Yes, as an arts blogger, I often feature active artists who support my Artist Marketing Resources blog promotional projects. Find out other ways to get featured on this blog and discover other art blogs and art magazines on my 57 page e-list of publications for artists.

Getting press coverage, on a blog, in a digital magazine or print magazine, or in a video interview, means that you will be seen by a new audience and reach a new market. You can also excerpt your feature article from the publication and share it on your blog and on social media. If you are interviewed on camera, you can post your video interview on your blog, on your YouTube channel and share on Pinterest, Twitter, Facebook etc.

Artist Karen Fitzgerald is one professional artist who knows how to get press coverage. Watch Karen as she energetically talks about her work in the video interview below. Karen says,  “It happened at an art fair I was participating in Manhattan, New York City in the Fall of 2013.  It was a very “happenstance” moment.  These 2 gentlemen were roving around interviewing people and asked me if I’d like to be part of an interview.  I said yes!  They were sweet and funny and so easy to work with. They were enthusiastic and made me feel very comfortable.”

Karen’s Advice to Artists: if you know ahead of time that an interview is coming up, plot out 3 or 4 main ideas you want to share. (For example: what the current work is about; your process; your historical or contemporary influences.) Don’t get too complex with your ideas – let the interviewer ask a follow-up question if they want to know more about what you just said.

If you don’t have time to prepare, speak off the cuff in as genuine a way as you can.  Ask your interviewer for 30 – 60 seconds for you to gather your wits before they roll the camera, if that is appropriate.  Smile a lot. Pause. Breathe and let your interviewer ask questions.  Know you are never going to get said everything you want or might need to.  Ask politely for the interviewer to post contact information about you and your work.

 

Artist and expert fine art gilder Karen Fitzgerald is hosting a day-long gilding workshop on September 9, in Long Island City, Western Queens, New York City. Find out more here: http://fitzgeraldart.com/gilding-workshop/ 

During my communications with Karen about her video, she didn’t miss a beat, but immediately sent me details on her gilding workshop, asking if I could post about her workshop along with the video.

Follow Karen’s lead. Connect with art bloggers and share your artist news with them. Have all the details in place– press release style or as an announcement–include images and links. If a blogger has an opening, you could get featured on an art blog. (Find more art blogs on this 57 page e-list of publications with artists. Read their submission guidelines and submit your artist news.)

New Pinterest Group Board Where Artists Include Retail Price On Image Pins of Their Art

blogck-7-hottest-pinterest-tips-480

 

I created a new Pinterest board this morning, Art Direct From Artists, where artists may pin images of their available art with retail price on each image. For artists who pin their art images to this new Pinterest group art board, I will re-pin your images to other appropriate Pinterest boards, plus every time I pin or re-pin your art image it will appear in my Twitter feed. I’ve had several top art galleries favorite Pinterest images in my Twitter feed for @Transmediartist. Plus, there is a new Pinterest option, a *Send Board* button at the top of the board. Once the board has artwork with retail prices I will work to find interior designers and other art buyers to send the board to. As creator of this group board I have curatorial options to remove any images that do not follow the board guidelines, such as lacking retail price or poor image quality.

If you’d like to add your art to the new Art Direct From Artists Pinterest Board simply let me know your Pinterest user name in a comment here. Once I add your user name to the group board you will receive an invitation via Pinterest. Accept, read the short group tips and instructions and add your art images. Add as many as you wish. (UPDATE: Please add Marie Kazalia on Pinterest to make it easy to join this group broad.)

Be sure to include your retail price on your Pinterest Pins of your art images!

While Social Media Examiner articles are not specifically about marketing fine art, their recent article 7 Pinterest Marketing Tips to Improve Visibility really hit the nail on the head for art marketing on Pinterest.

Social Media Examiner‘s #1 tip for using Pinterest–

#1: Include Price Tags

ekaterina walter gravatar pic

Ekaterina Walter

Pinterest users aren’t just looking for creative inspiration on the network. They’re also ready to buy.

Make sure you include a price tag in the pins you create or repin. After all, Pinterest drives more referral traffic than Google+, YouTube, and LinkedIn combined. More importantly, Pinterest pins with prices get 36 percent more likes than those without.

Providing a bit of general inspiration is great, but as a business person and a marketer you ultimately want to drive traffic to your site and inspire a purchase as well.

houzz now has Free Websites for Artists optimized for mobile and desktop

I’ve previously written on and recommended the houzz site to artists. Houzz is where artists may connect with interior designers and home owners who may be interested in purchasing art. Houzz also has options for artists to upload project collections containing images of room views with their 2-D art on the walls or 3-D art on table tops.

Now houzz has done something truly amazing for artists! Yesterday, I received a notice that houzz had created a website for me! To set up my new houzz website, I selected a template, updated with new images and then clicked the Publish button. It was that easy. I also discovered that houzz provides the option on my new houzz website–which you can view here-– to use my site URL to direct visitors to my personal art website. With only minutes required to set up how could I not use this great houzz resource to drive traffic to my site!?

Artists, We Will Tweet Your Link + Artist News to Our Thousands of Twitter Followers

blogtwitLovebirds

Here’s some advance publications news. The author of a forthcoming magazine article on how artists use Twitter, informed me that she has quoted me heavily in her article. The magazine editor requested two jpeg images of my art for the publication (space permitting). I haven’t read the article yet, but it will appear in the September marketing issue — in both print and digital editions– of Professional Artists magazine.

Before the article comes out, it would be nice to get even more Twitter followers on my Twitter account @Artozon which currently has 9,984 followers. I only need 16 more followers to roll my number of followers over to 10,000.  Artists, follow @Artozon on Twitter, tweet the link to your website and add the hashtag #artistnews or #artistmarket to get your tweet RT’d (re-tweeted) across all of my Twitter accounts!  (I set up @Artozon Twitter account August 2011, so it’s also a 3 year anniversary this month.)

My Twitter Account @TransArtGuide has 7,948 followers. I’d like to get that number up to 8,000.  Artists, follow @TransArtGuide on Twitter, tweet your link with the hashtag #artistnews or #artistmarket and I will RT (re-tweet)!

Please also follow my Twitter account @Transmediartist with 7,684 followers –I want to increase that number too.

Growth-Hacking Artists Is What We Do!

bloggrowthhackingplant

According to Wikipedia, growth hacking is a marketing technique… which uses creativity, analytical thinking, and social metrics to sell products and gain exposure.  Growth hacking can be seen as part of the online marketing ecosystem. Many growth hackers are simply good at using techniques such as search engine optimization, website analytics and content marketing which are already mainstream. Growth hackers focus on low-cost and innovative alternatives to traditional marketing– utilizing social media and viral marketing instead of buying advertising for radio, newspaper, and television. Growth hacking is particularly important for startup businesses as it allows for a “lean” launch that focuses on growth first, budgets second. Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Dropbox are all companies that use growth hacking techniques.

To quote Aaron Ginn, from his article Defining A Growth Hacker: Debunking The 6 Most Common Myths About Growth Hacking, “The magic of a growth hacker is not a mysterious power but rather a mindset that focuses on what most startups deprioritize: distribution. …, growth features tend to be forgotten and under-optimized until it matters most. Dave McClure, founder of 500 startups, said that most startup founders focus heavily on product but most of a startup’s risk lies in distribution.”

When these same issues are applied to any emerging fine artist’s business, the artist is typically focused on creating product–that is producing art works– to the neglect of distribution–that is making submissions.  When discussing an artist’s business concerns, rather than use the term distribution we refer to *submissions* made to *get the  work out there* and into gallery exhibitions, art publications, and online galleries to make sales and gain visibility. Artist submissions are presentations to art professionals in positions to do much for an artist’s career– be they gallerists, art dealers, art collectors, art consultants, fine arts publishers, arts magazine editors, art licensing agents or other arts professionals.

What many artists typically do, is focus on creating new work and only when their studio is filled do they begin to think that they might need some help getting the work out there and about gaining exposure. Gaining exposure, getting shows, and making sales begins with making submissions. For any artist, a great way to gain exposure is in a feature article written and published and shared widely on social media to increase visibility. The process of getting an article featuring an artist’s work begins with research into publications and then making submissions–all time-consuming tasks. The process of getting gallery representation also begins with research.

When any artist begins to understand all the things they need to spend time doing researching their market, they typically begin to feel overwhelmed. Where to begin? How do to find the time? They really don’t want to shift focus away from the studio to begin marketing and promoting. It’s a long hard growth process to discover how best to market and promote oneself. That kind of understanding doesn’t happen overnight! Even with the ease of social media there is much to learn and it takes years to understand how best to use all the tools that are available.

That’s where we come in! Artist Marketing Resources is in our 6th year of helping artists at all levels of the growth process. Yes, we really are growth hacking artists every day!

If you are an artist interested in finding opportunities, then follow and read our blog posts.

If you are an artist who would like your work featured, support us and we will do the same with perks–find the details here.

If you are an artist who wants to take more of a DIY approach to submitting your work, then we offer ten important tools and time savers  here.

We’re Sending Artist E-Postcards Out to Art Galleries

Artists, our latest promotional efforts with our new e-postcard marketing Plan A and Plan B have gotten underway this summer and with great interest! We’re sending E-postcards out to galleries in each of the participating artist’s home states, as well as to art galleries in major art centers such as New York City, London and other cities around the world. Some artists have had gallerist contact them right away after receiving our e-postcards!  We also share artist’s e-postcards on Twitter, Pinterest, Facebook and on our blog so that they appear in our newsfeed in the ArtWorld app.

Each time we send out a set of e-postcards, we include the clickable link to the artist’s website so that the recipient may view more of the artist’s work.

We’ll be sharing more of these, but for now, here is a sampling of some of our artist e-postcards–

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!

8 Ways Artist Marketing Resources Uses Twitter Daily

 

blogsocialmedia4

An arts journalist working on an article asked me for a quote on how I use Twitter. Thinking about that, I came up with this list of 8 ways I use Twitter (there are more, but I stopped at eight):

1. My Artist Marketing Resources blog is set to auto-post a new tweet with link when I publish a new article (I post new articles 6 times or more per week, so almost daily).  I also share the article again, during key times such as 8 a.m. and again at noon. These tweets bring readers to my blog. I check my blog stats and watch the numbers soar.

2. I offer my artist resources—art gallery list, art licensing list, art magazines list, art sales list, art prints list, art photography, art consultants resource list for artists, and my services— in individual tweets, which bring new buyers.

3. I announce each sale and location of buyer in a tweet to bring interest and new buyers—such as last Friday I tweeted:  an artist in Dubai just bought my International Art Gallery list of clickable links for #artists here

4. I use tweets to promote art—my own and others—along with uploading images to twitter. I use Tweetdeck for easy image upload and for sending tweets out from multiple Twitter accounts.

5. I have my Pinterest account connected to one of my Twitter accounts, so my art pins routinely appear in my Twitter feed as images, and I’ve had several top Blue Chip galleries favorite certain Pinterest tweets.

6. Some of the hashtags I use: #art #artists #artcollectors #artmarket #buyartonline #sellartonline #prints

7. I started my own Twitter thread #artistmarket and re-tweet artists tweets when they use that hashtag and appear in my thread.

8. I use Twitter buttons to post new art images in tweets each time I add new art to my ArtFinder store, (also on Saatchi online) usually adding hashtags. ArtFinder then Tweets the news that they have new art by me available on ArtFinder along with the image of my art. Then I re-tweet their announcement. So it’s great when I site works with artists using Twitter this way.

In short, I find twitter to be a valuable line out to new connections, to bring in readers and buyers and build my online presence and reputation.

Pictify, Pinterest, the ArtStack, ffffound,MeeWork, and We Heart It

When I see a comment that Pinterest is a waste of time, I know that they just don’t get it.  Both Pinterest and the ArtStack are great places to find reference images, organize, research and study –that is, examine a subject–such as a painting style–in a way that isn’t boring or tedious! If you are a visual thinker–and most artists are–then image sharing sites are for you. (When I want to view images of a historic artist’s work, I search Pinterest and ArtStack before I do a Google search).

ArtStack and Pictify are the two major sites that are all about publishing photos of art–your art, art you love, and historic artworks that inspire. Pinterest has an art category but users share images of everything, not just art, while the ArtStack and Pictify have only art images.

I’ve used Pinterest and ArtStack for a while, but only recently joined Pictify. I’ve also discovered a few smaller image sharing sites– ffffound , meework, and we heart it.

No matter what you call it– collecting, pinning, stacking, bookmarking, posting, or finding–when you put together interesting collections of art images you will attract others to view them, including gallerists, curators, art collectors, interior designers, and home decor shoppers! So be sure to have images of your own art and the art of your artist friends uploaded to these sites too.

ACID: Anti-Copying In Design Safer Online Platform and Marketplace

Last month, we featured an article on how artists designs had been lifted from e-commerce stores and used by large companies without permission. Since then, we’ve been looking for safer alternative venues where artists might protect and sell their designs online.

Recently we discovered exactly that– ACID sales initiative and Design Databank, which describes itself as a safer online marketplace platform where design-buyers can view the latest work by artist members.  Artists concerned about protecting their designs online may consider membership. Benefits of ACID membership include a specialist legal hotline to initial free advice on intellectual property issues for artists trading outside of their home countries and specialist advice from European, USA and China based teams. Members may use the powerful Member of ACID Logo, plus have access to industry standard agreements and deterrent products. Members become part of the active ACID Community interaction on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn. Members news and product images and designs receive free marketing via regular press releases, news stories and the ACID Newsletter. Both non-members and members may use the such IP Tracker – which tracks your intellectual property to trade safely and keep track of new designs and confidential information sent by e-mail to design buyers and other third parties.
