and for clarity - by "favorite artist" I don't mean just me... I mean the various artist you may follow and enjoy.
now with my recent example...
I recently posted the 5th chapter of Wings in the Night here at DeviantArt.
I asked for any help promoting the content on social media.
As far as I can tell, not a single person did this. I didn't get any notifications or alerts.
Update - some people have now helped out - Thank you!
You probably don't realize how much just tweeting out your favorite artwork can help an artist.
You never know who may discover that artist for the first time. Someone could then do the same.
Tweets, re-posts, etc, help get the word out.
What does it cost you? Just a few seconds of your time.
oh and what NOT to do - don't download the image and post it again... instead, recycle the original post, so the credit goes back to the creator and people can follow the thread.
I just posted something on my twitter (i dont have many real followers but i hope it helps ).
I've shared on my page, i hope can help.
I honestly would but am unable to since I don't have social media accounts, I only have a tweeter for the odd giveaway I come across that asks you for one and have never posted anything so I don't think it would help, and then there is google+, but did anyone EVER use that?
Actually I did post something on Facebook about you and your work. But I can try reaching on other social media sites.
Thanks - that's a huge help - what's the link?
I just got up from a nap so I want to be sure I'm understanding the question. I shared a link from "Dixie Photoshoot 2" on my Twitter and Tumblr. I don't have a huge amount of followers but I figure every little bit helps. The Facebook link I posted on July 26th I linked "Chapter 5 page 132". Posted and added messages letting people know who's work is, who you are to me and that you do commissions.
Hi Doug, other than facebook I don't have any social media accounts otherwise I would have been more than happy to help out!
I’m sorry Doug, but I really don’t mess around with social media. I think I might have had a Facebook page once upon a time, but I don’t do much with it because I’m here most of the time. Now my daughter, whee! She’s on that kind of stuff a lot.
