local artist seeks advice on social media for business
Posted by: minitoots 15 August, 2016 20:47

My painting ‘Aurelia’s Dress’ has been shortlisted for the National Open Art Show which takes place in London in the autumn. It has got through to the last 500 from about 4,500 so I’m really pleased about that anyway as they only pick about 100 for the actual show. They have also got a ‘World Art Vote’ where the shortlisted painting with the most votes gets shown even if not selected by the judges for the final show so I am trying to use social media to engage with as many people as possible. Although I have Instagram and Twitter accounts I don't use them much and don't want to do the wrong thing. If anyone has time to take a look at what I've tried to do so far on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook with suggestions of how to get more exposure,and also what NOT to do, that would be great.
I'm very happy to receive any constructive advice!

First, here is the link to the 'world vote' which also shows the painting

and here I am on Twitter-
and Instagram
And my facebook page – I’ve just paid £15 for a ‘sponsored ad’ but not sure if it will help
