Pinterest is a Haven for Fine Art
A few years ago I wrote about eight reasons why artists needed to use Pinterest. That was three years ago and even then Pinterest was considered a new kid on the social media block. Yes it is still not up there with Facebook, but Pinterest continues to grow rapidly. All those reasons for using Pinterest still apply today. If you are still not sure consider these reasons.
Pinterest is the fastest growing social media channel next to Instagram. There are compelling reasons for this:
How does this benefit art lovers? Well the fact that you can search for any art form, artist, subject matter and genre is a big plus. Added to this is the quality of images that you receive. Then you can pin the images to your own public or private board. This makes the service useful for research topics too.
Want art lessons? An abundance of curated topics can be found in every niche. Forget Google, look on Pinterest and pin your finds to your own boards. You can even watch YouTube videos within Pinterest without having to exit to another website.
Artists should be using Pinterest if they are not already. There is no reason not to. Copyright? Forget about this issue since Pinterest is amazing free advertising and an endorsement for you as an artist.
Optimize your profile, revamp your boards and take up pinning. You never know what you may find that inspires you too.
Join me on Pinterest and share you favorite art with me.
