Social networking sites can also allow you to get your art noticed. In fact, some artists have become very successful and successful due to their art being posted on sites such as Instagram and Facebook.

Another way you can get others' attention and have your artwork seen by a larger group of people is by adding a link to your website or blog address.

If your art is already being sold online and you have a website, by using the social media platforms listed below, you can further promote your art by providing links to your art, allowing people to visit your website and to leave a review of the art that you have so far sold.

Not all social media sites have the features to make it easy to promote your art. Instagram, for example, has only a few options to promote your art on the platform.

Most people using social media sites aren’t likely to leave many comments on your art or post it as their profile picture. Thus, you’ll need to use your pictures' visual appeal to get people to take the time to check out your work and leave comments.

Be creative

Using your creativity to create something new and innovative is one of the best ways to get yourself noticed. Some people will even pay to hire you to make paintings.

By using social media to create your brand, people will find out more about you and your art. If you can promote your art properly, you can make a lasting impression and be remembered.

Another way to get yourself noticed is by adding a link to your website or blog address. Many people will look for you by searching through social media such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and more.

Not only that, by posting links to your website or blog, you’re making sure that your work is always visible to anyone searching for you.

Making a video, getting a website, and actively promoting yourself can allow you to create a brand that will take you far in life. Being noticed and getting noticed are two sides of the same coin; however, having a good brand and actively promoting it will make sure that you get noticed and that people are attracted to your art and craft.

The latest viral trends

The latest viral trends

Many recent memes, GIFs, and viral marketing campaigns have come from social media. That means that if you can be noticed and get people interested in your work, you could go viral in just a matter of time.

When memes become popular, they can become overplayed in just a matter of time and lose their originality. A recent meme called Taco Bell’s Colin Kaepernick campaign saw huge success through social media use.

Taco Bell recently released a series of tweets with Colin Kaepernick pictured doing various things that customers do when eating Taco Bell.

The campaign was aimed at Colin Kaepernick, who hasn’t played professional football for almost two years. The hashtag #AvocadoToppedCheesyBowl was used in conjunction with the tweets.

It is thought that Taco Bell used the Twitter'shashtag remix’ feature to help people understand that the images used of Kaepernick eating tacos were a recreation of his famous photo with a can of Diet Coke and a taco.

Most memes that become extremely popular are short-lived. However, Taco Bell’s #AvocadoToppedCheesyBowl campaign used a good strategy to get people to discuss the topic. This is how it was able to achieve such success.

Memes for life

Using good memes to get a buzz going, which people will then talk about in their own words, can work. You should take steps to promote your work, but social media is there to help you, so you need to be active on the social media platforms and build a profile that stands out from the crowd.

In some instances, all it takes is for someone to see something different from what they are used to doing and start a conversation that leads to something bigger than just your craft. What would you do if you were lucky enough to make a $10m mistake? “I’m going to make $10,000,000”. If you can get people to talk about your craft, it can lead to something a lot bigger than just a novel.
