You get plenty of likes and nice comments. But what about sales?
Look past the feel good for a second and consider that those likes and comments are mostly from friends, family and others who are also trying to sell their art. Are those people likely to buy your art? Well, maybe Mom might buy something. What we need is qualified buyers--people with buying intent. We need potential buyers clicking through to our art. But how?
I have been there. Countless posts on different social media sites had cost me lots of time and effort with hardly any results. Nothing really worked until I discovered (by accident) the huge potential of a site that I mostly ignored: Pinterest. Did you know that 55% of Pinterest users use the site to look for things to buy? Wow! Plug me into that!
How do we access this vast potential? Yes, I had a Pinterest account, but I had no idea what I was doing. Like a dog on a bone, I dove in and learned all I could learn. Let me now shorten your learning curve so you too can get the right eyes on your art!
In the first chapter of my course I will describe in detail why I fell in love with Pinterest (Hint: I made $442 in art sales on Fine Art America in one day) and why it changed everything. You can read this chapter (and some others) for free, just click here and register for the Free Trial
After I started to take Pinterest seriously, I had a couple of very nice sales during the Holiday shopping season 2016, here are a few of them:
A revenue of $744.03 from online sales (via Fine Art America) in less than three weeks was nothing I experienced in my Pre-Pinterest age. Had it been easy to get these results? Heck no! I invested lots of time in reading everything I could find and trying out many different things. I felt stuck several times because some of the articles I found online were full of outdated, inaccurate or even completely wrong information. To put it politely, they were well-meant and probably a fit for bloggers, but of very little help in selling art with Pinterest.
It took me months to write down everything I know, condense and rewrite it and put in a logical order. I had an editor and some beta testers that helped me test and refine the course. Here are some of their testimonials:
What other artists say about this course
This is a mail William Tasker send me after completing the first five lessons of the course:
“You have me brimming with enthusiasm to try out your ideas! I am enjoying the course and think it will help a lot of people! Since I started following your course and advice, my average daily impressions are up 177% and my average daily users are up 294%. My average monthly viewers are up 494% and my average monthly engaged is up 404%.”
Some FAA Artists trusted me enough to buy this course long before it was finished. Here are some snippets of the feedback I got during the beta phase of the course:
- "I like the way you are presenting things. Well done, I'm hooked already."
- "Website visits are up 500%, and visits are coming 15 to 1 from Pinterest over Twitter. I have about 1,200 followers on Twitter and 14 on Pinterest..."
- "By the way, I had my first sale on FAA five days after starting the course and working on Pinterest."
