How much do you know About.Me ?

About.Me
Not sure if you all had heard about this one yet or not. This is my page http://about.me/owfotografik on this site.

This is a site that is like an “about me page” but it is a whole site. So I can have a bio and links to all of my social networks and sites.
I have seen people using this as their “about me” on their website or blog. Have a link to this site rather than coding an about me page.

As you can with many social styled sites, you can interact with other users. The really cool part about this site is that they encourage integration with all of your other Social Media sites and Websites. It is truly a comprehensive listing of you online. The social aspect makes it possible for you to connect with someone across all of their social sites on the internet. In some ways you could even use it as a “mini resume” page.

About.me (Usually styled as about.me) is a personal web hosting service co-founded by Ryan Freitas, Tony Conrad and Tim Young in October 2009.[2] The site offers registered users a simple platform from which to link multiple online identities, relevant external sites, and popular social networking websites such as Facebook, Flickr, Google+, LinkedIn, Twitter, Tumblr, and YouTube. It is characterized by its one-page user profiles, each with a large, often-artistic background image and abbreviated biography.” – Wikipedia

Marketing used to be simple.

You placed an advertisement in a magazine, the yellow pages or the local newspaper and people picked up the phone and called you or dropped into your place of business.

Read Your Feeds

Tip for Today:
Go visit your social media sites and look at your feeds. Are they solid FAA link posts or do you have other info in there as well.

Do you feel engaged by your content or are you bored by it. I was really surprised one day after posting a bunch of stuff, to go and read my Twitter feed, and be really turned off by it. Make sure you think about what you are sharing and the message you want to convey when you share online.

Inspirational quotes, photography/painting advice tips/tricks, what interests you personally that you would like to share with the world. What influences your artistic visions, What is your favorite color and why, showcase work in that color……

Social Media followers like to be engaged with you as a person and not just your work πŸ™‚

Early Morning Magic

Connecting With Your Audience

I do a lot of reading about art marketing using social media. One article I read said that your goal on social media is making connections with real people who slowly get to know you and trust you. This is accomplished by genuinely commenting and sharing other people’s posts. Lori McNee and Alyson Stanfield are two people who blog about art marketing. They have many great tips and techniques. I don’t know if it was one of them but they stated that for every 12 posts that you make only 2 of them should be about you.
Alyson believes that you should have your own website and all of your marketing should come from there. She’s a strong believer in blogging and newsletters. In this way you build a community of people who like and will buy your stuff.
Love to hear what others are thinking and any ideas you might have about balance.
