This guide will go over the five steps you need to follow to promote your artist shop like the pros.
Listen To The Hype
Whether you swim with or against the flow, it’s important to know what’s going on out there, what trends, styles, themes, and topics are building popularity.
Social Media Ads
If you plan on promoting your artist shop through social media, you’ve got to have compelling visual assets to accompany your adverts and make sure they meet the results you are expecting.
Visual content tools like Placeit allow you to create powerful graphics and product shots to allow your artwork to stand out and make the most out of your advert budget.
