Come Grow With Us!
After years of working with our old format Pinterest account, we have just created a new Pinterest Business account for Artist Marketing Resources. You can grow with us.
We’re setting up new options for artists on our Artist Marketing Resources Pinterest business account here. On it we’ll focus on promoting the art of our readers. (It’s all brand new and kind of bare at the moment–but it won’t stay that way for long!)
Many artists already post their art to our old Pinterest group board Art Direct From Artists and in the past we’ve promoted the board and artists heavily on Twitter.
Now you can be one of the first artists to join our new business Pinterest account version of Art Direct From Artists and add pinned images of your art available directly to buyers!
How to join Art Direct From Artists and add your art image pins–
Step 1: follow Artist Marketing Resources on Pinterest–click here to follow
Step 2: send an email (to: firstname.lastname@example.org) or send a private message on the Pinterest platform letting us know that you want to join our artists group board Art Direct From Artists.
Step 3: Check your Pinterest followers (look for Artist Marketing Resources–we’ll follow you back) and check your Pinterest invitations. Once you find our invitation to join Art Direct From Artists, accept the invitation and you can start adding pins of your own art available for sale to buyers! Include your retail prices on your art image pins! Buyers will contact you directly.
You benefit from our promotions of the group board Art Direct From Artists in our feature articles published here and on other magazine and blog platforms. Our Twitter tweets feature the group board link and select artworks, and we talk about the group board in discussions on other social media platforms.
Our past promotions of Art Direct From Artists have brought artists on the group board more visibility! It works. We know because artists who pinned their art to our old group board– which is a few years old now– have reported sales that tracked back to our Pinterest group board!
Why we like our new Pinterest Business account:
We say “our” new Pinterest Business account because we want to integrally include you and your art! My old Pinterest account is years old and so crammed full of images that it’s time to make a fresh start.
Pinterest has many new features with their new Business account option. For instance, our group board Art Direct From Artists has Sections for sorting art images for buyers to more easily search–so far we’ve created sections for: Abstract Painting, 3-D Sculptural Works, Contemporary REALISM, Outsider / self-taught /auto-didactic
We plan to promote our new Pinterest Business account and group artist boards on Twitter and via feature articles and more.
Feel free to ask me any questions you may have in a comment.
We Want to Hear From You

Just leave on comment on this article to get things started.
