In order to help other artists and myself, I am always on the hunt for great success stories. Recently, I had two valued readers share their social media success stories with me:

Kelli’s Facebook Success Story:

As an artist it goes without saying that there are times when one needs to be exceptionally creative to keep the wheels turning. I’ve painted signs for businesses, done murals in people’s homes and businesses, sold existing paintings to clients through gallery shows or online galleries, received private commissions, written grants for public art projects and done illustration for publications.

That being said, I am always looking for more ways to promote and sell work because, of course, this is how I make my living.

A few months ago, I started looking to social networking to expand my client base. It is a great way to expand a business.

Using Facebook as my platform – this is how I did it:

1. I uploaded several different galleries of my art.

2. It made sense for me to break these galleries down by price range. For example, under $275, under $400 and under $1,500. Although, I have a large body of work in the $10,000 and up range.
