In September 2014 we featured the ARTiculAction publication project Call for Artists– here on our site.
Two artists who submitted to the call we shared– Alan Singer and Metrov– are both featured in the December 2014 Issue out now.
We are always glad to hear from artists on how such opportunities worked for them, such as this note–
I just wanted to thank you for sending the daily art marketing news. Last October I shared the opportunity of having artwork published in ARTiculAction
with my class, and this month they published my interview. This is a great example of going the extra distance to find a larger audience. Your help in this new media mix is essential!

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.”
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.)

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!

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.
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!

I received a request from Beth, to share the news with artists that they are seeking artwork to publish on the cover of The Reader–here are the details:
I’m writing from The Reader Organisation, a social enterprise in the North West. We work to connect people with great literature through shared reading. We also publish a quarterly literary magazine called The Reader which offers great writing wherever we can find it, presenting big names and new voices side by side.
We’re always looking for submissions from cover artists to showcase their talent and to help them gain more exposure, and I wondered whether it would be possible to list The Reader under Art Magazines and Publications Submit list?
To read a little bit more about The Reader, please see our website: http://www.thereader.org.uk/magazine.aspx
As Beth requested, I’ve added The Reader to the Artist Marketing Resource list of Art Magazines, art blogs, art publishers for #artists to submit to increase visibility. Click here to access that PDF list.
