Yesterday I 'soft' launched a NEW Facebook Page associated with this website.
You can find it at https://www.facebook.com/artbusinessforartists/ Before I formally announced it had some 60+ likes. Since going public earlier this afternoon it has now got over 200 likes in its first 24 hours.
The rationale behind the new Page is explained in Making A Mark on Art Business and Marketing.
In summary - the intention is that this should provide an easy of keeping up to speed with interesting news and updates about matters relating to:
Some of what you see on the Facebook Page will also be the subject of posts on this blog. Some items will relate to new links and updates to the website.
Bottom line - it's a different way of keeping up to date with what's happening - and the speed of change in the environment in which artists have to operate these days.
If you have a Facebook account and you'd like to keep up with it you can link to it by 'liking' the page. It should then appear in your news feed - and will continue to do so if you regularly indicate an appreciation of what is posted.
(Note about how Facebook works: If you just look and do nothing then chances are it will disappear from your news feed in time. Your Facebook news feed is always configured to present you with information you like looking at and respond to! It does NOT contain every new item on every page you have ever liked.)
