Facebook: Can it Help You Sell Your Art?


Part III, Marketing with Social Media: Using Facebook to Sell Art

Facebook is an online social media and social networking service with with more than 2 billion users worldwide. Wow! Bigger than any art fair I've ever attended, but what can it do for you as a business tool? Can you turn all those members into customers. Or, how about .1% of them. Would that work?

This is an artist driven podcast with input from three artists who have experience on the platform:

  1. Richard Sullivan from Naples, FL, who says he has "literally been to Facebook College. I know it sounds crazy but they have spent countless hours working with me."
  2. Erik Jensen from Utah, who uses his very tech savvy skills to sell his art, created from computer keys, from his website and interconnected Facebook and Instagram accounts
  3. Dawn Wilson, a high altitude and high latitude photographer and writer from Estes Park, CO, who integrates her website, Facebook and Instagram to manage her sales and serve as president-elect of the North American Nature Photography Association. 

With all of that expertise you will be inspired to finally use all these free tools to grow your art career.

Questions and answers the second half of the show. 1-800-243-1338

Leave comments below and questions you'd like answered by our guests. This should be good! We all use Facebook for fun ... how about for profit too?

Thank you, Pamela. Frankly, I was blown away from the information I received, the success these people have achieved and all the ways they've been able to leverage Facebook for business growth. Wow!

This was an excellent podcast.  Lots of suggestions for SM.   I forwarded it to other artists asking these same questions.

Got it, Rachelle. Thanks for this question.

How do I best grow my FB followers/page likes on my business page?  I'm getting a few more by sharing to FB groups, but it is a slow increase.  I don't like to "invite people to like my page", so other suggestions are welcome.

I do have both a biz page and a personal page and try to keep my business stuff separate, but I occasionally share a post or event to my personal page since I know more people will see it.

Thank you for your time.  I will try to join the call today.
