Aspiring artists know how hard it can be to get people to pay attention to your creations, or even get your name out there.
Believe it or not, there are ways to get more exposure for your art without having to break your back.
Here are some important tips that every artist should know when trying to get their name out in the art world.
It’s important to make as many relationships as you can if you are trying to get exposure. Talk to other artists, talk to gallery owners, and strike up chats with people who are admiring your new ruby and diamond ring creation. You never know who will pass on the word about your work.
Make something everyone enjoys.
Displaying a new birthstone necklace, a pair of birthstone earrings, or other traditional jewelry pieces can be a good way to get people who otherwise wouldn’t be interested in your work to pay attention to your stuff.
Make an effort to put things online.
Take photos of every design you have created and post it on sites like Tumblr, Facebook, and Google +. Get your friends to share pictures of your latest work, and try to submit your photos to sites like Reddit’s fashion category. You never know what may happen. You need to get into the social media scene in order for your designs to go viral, and if you want to get exposure for your artistic work, you need to consider trying to go viral online. It’s the fastest way to fame these days.
Toot your own horn whenever you can.
Are people talking about how hard it is to find good jewelry these days? If you overhear people complaining about a lack of cool designs, mention that you design jewelry and are willing to make them some new accessories. You’ll be surprised at how quickly word can spread if you offer your services. Many times, people may not approach you about your artwork simply because they don’t know that you are an artist! Don’t let that happen to you if you can help it.
No one becomes famous completely overnight. You need to keep promoting your work before you can make a name for yourself.
Lastly, never give up on your goal of becoming a well known jewelry creator. You can do it, all you have to do is amp up your promotional work!
