A Thread To Sell Art

Not meaning to be rude or anything, but people are always coming up with all kinds of threads, which as along as Abbie don't care, I certainly don't.

I don't know if people think they are actually worthwhile for marketing or just doing them for fun.

But I wonder why no one ever comes up with a thread that actually encourages people to promote things OUTSIDE of FAA where they may be seen by potential buyers.

FAA encourages all members to like, favorite, vote and share links of artists that we like on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, G+ and one or two more SM platforms.

Why not a thread where a person posts a link to an image they want to promote and everyone shares it on as many of the above mentioned SM platforms as possible? Or better yet in a couple of groups that you belong to where the image would be acceptable.

Just a thought.

Of course, if people are just doing these threads for the fun of it, there is certainly nothing wrong with that.

We can do it here or someone can start another thread.

Who wants to start? Someone post a link (NOT AN IMAGE) to an image and everyone that likes the image can share it as they see fit. This has to be on the honor system. You can't just post a link of your own image and not share the images of others.

Who wants to be first?

I just want to mention one other thing.

I know there are people here that are dead against any kind of promoting of other peoples artwork.

We know that. If you don't want to play please just don't play.

Thank you.

I am going to start this off by with a tribute to Harold Shull who recently passed.

I am assuming that the proceeds of his FAA gallery are going to his family and I think we can all agree that he was one of the great all-time members of FAA with an incredible body of work.

Here is his image Portland Head Lighthouse. Please join me and share this wonderful image with your friends or in your Facebook groups or a Tweet.

Most of those threads are within groups.

Since it is super bowl Sunday and the Eagles are our local team I picked this one from Halls works

Thank you, Iris. I just shared Harold's image in four Facebook groups.

Now post one of your own images you would like promoted.

RE: Harold Shull

I just posted on my facebook social account a link back to FAA.

But I took the liberty of posting a different painting.."A Cool Drink"

Who cares?

They are discussions!

If people want to discuss they will, if they don't..... the thread will drop out of sight.

What I really don't understand is that something is considered someone's thread and said person needs to keep sticking his or her oar in.

Discussions.

No right, no wrong; let's just talk about it.... and go home thinking: who cares.

Iris Richardson, I just shared your amazing dandelion on all my social media outlets... I am on all of them. I posted it to my Facebook art page, a Pinterest artist group board, Stumble upon, to my Google+ collection and Twitter.

Here's one of mine if anyone wants to share it I would be very grateful!

Roger, thank you for playing and posting one of Hal's images.

Post a link to one of your images that you want us to promote.

Yawn...

Sorry Floyd, I'll promote Harold next week, I've already posted too much art of other artists this week and it's beginning to look like spam on all my social networks.

 

Shelli Fitzpatrick

Thank you Floyd and I will come back in the morning and share Hal's images too.

Good Night all!

Floyd,

This sort of chain is interesting to me.It is an extra and more productive way of using the forum.

Everyone naturally wants to put their best foot forward. It is easy to share these works.

I have so many SM outlets now that the ones I want to keep to myself I can. While I have 17k or more followers where I can share other folks things and not have any worries. Then there are FB groups where I can further share things for people.

RE:... "Roger, thank you for playing and posting one of Hal's images.

The problem I have, and the reason I don't do as well on the internet as I possibly could...is simply:


I can't in good conscience promote someone's work because they want me to

Conversely

I don't expect anyone else to promote my work, because I ask them to.,


The reason I promoted Hal Shull"s art on Facebook, primarily is because, to me, his work is deliciously phenomenal... Along with the facts that he had never asked to do it and you suggested that I do

Iris and Matthias,

FB and Twitter done.

Here is another one for the Eagles fans.....

Awesome David! thanks! I just shared yours and am getting ready to share more from this thread as the day goes on.

Floyd, I think this was a great idea! I have always felt that promoting others adds interest to my pages and helps attract views. Plus the reap what you sow factor can't hurt either...

going to share Hal's now.

I ended up sharing this one which I dearly love!

Hi Kim Petersen, welcome aboard!

The idea is to post a link to just one image you want the rest of us to promote via Social Media.

In return, you promote the links that each person posts in whatever SM you chose.

What I do is post each link to my Pinterst board, Art From Around the World and to 2-3 three Facebook groups I belong to.

Thanks for joinging and best of luck to you.
