In my early twenties, I moved to New York City to pursue my art career. I would create all day in my tiny apartment then, at night go work as a bartender at a busy Midtown restaurant. After several months I finally secured the coveted gallery show but to my disappointment, I sold nothing, made zero connections, and was left feeling defeated.
I thought to myself why do I need a gallery when they clearly cannot guarantee me sales. It was at that moment that my focus shifted and I became passionate about social media. For the next 12-months, I did everything in my power to prove that I could be successful without a gallery. I spent every waking minute (when I wasn’t slinging drinks at the bar) learning everything there was to know about marketing my art online.
Since then I’ve sold multiple 6-figures worth of my art, won awards, been featured by major press outlets, secured multi 5-figure private commissions, and much more. How did I attract this success? The simple answer is INSTAGRAM!
Did this happen overnight - nope - I'm not here to blow smoke up your ***, there is definitely some work that needs to be done to achieve these kinds of results.
Is this kind of success possible for you on Instagram? Absolutely - I did not have any special skill set, nor am I a particularly tech-savvy person. What I have learned over the years are some incredibly powerful and effective ways to use Instagram as a TOOL to reach new collectors, be considered for opportunities, and sell my work.
