ACS ONLINE MARKETING | TIPS to SUCCESS

Part 3 | As Featured in our month newsmag
SPOTLIGHT on the ARTS
by Wendy Mould | SotA Regular Contributor

Selling on Social Media means posting content. Lots of Content. Here’s 10 Ideas to get you on the Road to Success

1. Show your process: Every step of your creative process requires you to make decisions. Share those steps and decisions with your viewers. What inspired you? Why this idea now? Why this approach? Why this size?

2. Share your success: You made it into a show, a sale, an award, a performance. Promotion doesn’t stop when the product is produced. Celebrate your success.

3. Post pictures and videos of your most popular items. What’s hot for you right now? For example, Pet Portraits are popular presents, posting pictures of my recent Pet Commissions at gift giving times makes sense.

4. Special Tips, be helpful: Solve some of your target audience’s problem. Videos and tips on ways to improve drawing and painting skills helps to promote my teaching.

5. Showcase your products: do a video or post a reel doing a walkthrough of your show or studio

6. Customer Testimonials: take screenshots of client’s testimonials and use them as a post

7. Promote the Social Cause you support: Post support for your Cause on your feed.

8. Promote Yourself: Let the followers see the face behind the product. Share your story: your creative journey, your passions, how you work.

9. Promote your Helpers: I know you have a small one owner business, but you do have a support team – family, friends. Max, my dog, is part of my support team.

10. Posts FAQs: Your audience has questions around your product: purchasing, commission work, shipping, and care after purchase are the most common. Create posts to answer these issues.
