Using Social Media

Be social

If you haven’t done already, create a Facebook page or join Twitter. Start off by becoming online friends with us, and other artists from our fairs. If you find this intimidating on a computer, try using an app on your phone or tablet. These often simplify a lot of the processes and are easier to use for rapid messaging.

Engage online

Don’t just post your own messages, share contributions from other artists and engage in conversation with people who comment on your posts. Social media doesn’t work if you just act as a message sending machine. Share events that you may not be going to – your followers may be interested, and it all help builds an audience for artists and yourself.

Branch out

Once you are confident with Facebook and Twitter, you could also try photo and image based social media like Instagram or Pinterest.
