If you are an artist and wondering how to get the most out of your artists network, here are 5 hacks to help you:
1. When you join an art community, don’t just show up; make yourself known. Do a blog post, send a tweet and/or email everyone using the same hashtag. You can also share links to your work on that platform as well.
2. Don’t use the word “join” when referring to what you’re doing with the community or organization… Use words like “participate in”, “contribute”, or even just “be a part of”.
3. Try putting yourself out there on social media even if you don’t feel like it – people will notice and will be more likely to connect with you because of it.
4. Be present in the communities you’re in. If someone has a question for you, be available to answer it. If not now, then when?
5. Build relationships with other artists and always try to help them out when it’s possible for you! Artists helping artists is what creates community!
If you want to get the most out of your artists’ network, you can use these 5 hacks for improving your effectiveness in the group.
1. Get Your Own Website
Having a website is essential for any artist who wants to get more bookings and build a stronger business. It’s a way to share your artwork with potential clients, but it’s also an opportunity to show off your personality, show that you take your art seriously, and demonstrate that you have an online presence. It also lets you link back to your Facebook page or other social media accounts, so that people can follow you and find out more about what you do.
2. Keep Your Info Up-to-Date
Another reason why it’s important to have your own site is that it’s the only way you can update information about yourself as often as you need to without cluttering up other people’s sites or flooding their inboxes with messages from you. If your contact info is on someone else’s site, they’ll have to remember to update it whenever anything changes and risk not getting every detail right, which can make people nervous about working with you if they think there may be some piece of crucial information about you missing from your page.3. Have a Consistent Branding StrategyEvery
I have been a member of a number of artist communities and I have noticed that people often get the most out of their artists network by sharing a little bit about themselves, becoming involved in the life of the community and reaching out to other members.
I have also found that as an artist, you need to learn to market yourself as well as your work. Your work is only part of what you can offer.
To help you get the most out of your artists network, here are five hacks that I have found help make it worth my while:
Making art is challenging enough, but to find success, you have to network. Luckily, there are many ways that artists can network in a way that’s good for their career as well as their personal life. Here are some tips on how you can get the most out of your artists network.
It is a well known fact that the most important thing when it comes to networking with an artist network is to make sure that you have a blog. Having a blog where you can have art words is something that will help your networking as an artist.
Here’s the thing: make sure you keep your audience in mind. We’re all artists, and we can all draw. But if you’re looking to build a following, it’s better to have a consistent style and underlying concept that you can build on as your skills improve.
**I’ve noticed some of my favorite artists’ work gets better as they get more experienced. There are a few reasons for this, but the most important is that these artists are able to cultivate their own unique styles over time and then build on that foundation. This is something that I’m still developing in my own art practice, and I think there are five hacks you can do to help yourself achieve this goal:
1) Don’t post everything you make! Post only your best stuff (that means it has to be good). If you’re just starting out, maybe post one every week or two. If you get feedback that people like what you’re doing, then post more often. If they don’t like it, then look at what they didn’t like and try not to make those mistakes again!
2) Ask your friends or family what they think before posting! You know them the best so they can give you the most honest feedback about what looks good and what doesn
1. Make an artist’s resume instead of a resume.
A resume is for a job. An artists resume is for the people in your network. It’s not about your education, it’s about what you offer to the community. Maybe it’s “I’m a funny person” or “I’m an organizer” or “I have connections to tech companies in New York.” Maybe it’s “I can make beautiful things.”
Make and keep art resumes of yourself — in different sizes, on different media, with different content — and carry them around with you. Give them to people who might be able to use or promote your work. When they ask you what you do, tell them.
2. Find out who in your network loves what you love and wants to join your network and then connect the two groups!
If you’re a visual artist and there are other visual artists in your network, introduce them! Your fellow artists will love this because they can’t always find each other easily. If there isn’t anyone else in their field, they’ll be happy to meet someone else who loves art as much as they do, even if that person doesn’t create art; artists are friendly!
If you’re a playwright who knows other playwrights
