Tips on Promoting Your Artwork

Want to promote your art but don’t know where to start? Here are just few tips on how to utilize Saatchi Online to promote your art:

Build a Great Portfolio

Having a well-organized, well-photographed portfolio with high-resolution images and detailed information of your artwork is the first step to establishing a great portfolio. As a professional artist, you not only want to showcase your art, but also should tell your fans the stories behind it– when was it created, what were you inspired by, and what did you use to create it?

Enter Showdown

What other events could possibly generate more impressions for your art than Showdown? With each Showdown, Saatchi Art continues to receive millions of votes and record numbers of submissions. Showdown winners are interviewed by the Saatchi Magazine and are rewarded with cash prizes. Best of all, they are also invited to exhibit their work at the Saatchi Gallery in London or prestigious international art fairs. Want exposure? Participate in the next Showdown!

Make Your Art Search-Friendly

Art collectors are often quite particular about which art to purchase next. Some are inspired by specific subjects, while others are interested in certain medium - you can never guess what collectors are looking for or how they find you. The best practice is to write a good description of your art, specify the category, subject, medium, and size of your art, add relevant keywords, and let Saatchi Art do the rest. If you take the time to be precise about your art, we promise you we'll do our best to match it with our collectors' needs.

Become Part of the Community

Are there events or exhibitions that you would like to participate in? Any charity events where you would want to auction your art? What is currently going on in the art world? Who are the influencers and how do you get in touch with them? Awareness is a must when it comes to promoting your art, and following Saatchi Art on Facebook and Twitter is an easy way to stay aware.

Stay in Touch, Collaborate

Network is beneficial and fun. Saatchi Art is a great place to make connections and keep yourself involved. Make some friends and engage in discussions. Your friends will soon become an enthusiastic army of art promoters for you.

Bring your network to Saatchi Art

If you're on Facebook, Twitter, or any other social network, bring your fans to Saatchi Art.
