7 Ways to Use Google Alerts & Monitor Your Art Niche

John R. Math |

Monitor Niche Keywords

With Google Alerts the artist can monitor several key words that are used for and about their art or for their art business. The key word alerts will provide to the artist interesting links to what other artists and related professionals are doing. In addition, the alerts will also provide the artist with ideas and hints for other key words, subjects and related topics that could enhance the marketing and selling of their art too as well.

Monitor Art News and Opportunities in your Niche

As an artist who specializes in a specific art form and who is looking for more opportunities, Google Alerts is a great tool to use. Assume you are a photographer and you are looking for art galleries and photography competitions where your photography may fit. For example, the artist could set up Google Alerts for “photography art galleries”, “photography competitions”, “photography exhibitions”, or “photography gallery opportunities”. These search terms and phrases can all be further refined to geographic areas if required.

An artist, depending on what they are after, will need to try different terms and experiment with different phrases and queries in order to make this process effective. This process is no different than an artist refining keys words for a website or for a Pay Per Click (PPC) campaign. See what works or does not work and further refine as you go along while learning all of the great advantages of Google Alerts.

Target Key Words to Find Customers

I have a friend who has always been interested in art for hospitals, art therapy, healing art and evidence based art. She set up several Google Alerts for art in hospitals and for art therapy programs. Every day she receives alerts that provides to her ideas, information, news and opportunities in her specialty of “hospital art”.

What is your area of interest in art? Where are your opportunities to sell your art? Where are your prospects and potential customers? Try Google Alerts to beat your competition, discover new opportunities and to find trends in your art niche.
