Social networks were ultimately important. Media groups. It is important to connect with the art community and ask for help and advice for the next book?
LinkedIn gave me the most interesting feedback from artists. Some social media platforms fell flat, such as Facebook, Instagram,TikTok. All based on impressions.
I need to design specific products now branded to promote the book - “Journey of a Confused artist”. The task that I have set myself in terms of research and investment will be long and hard.
I've discovered design and influences from many graphic designers, one of which is called Paula Share. The visual language shouted out to me and her impact, along with great designers of typography such as Milton Glazier. This was really inspirational.
The next book needed the art community's help. LinkedIn gave me the most interesting feedback from artists and the difference of others. Social media platforms fell flat, such as Facebook, Instagram, TikTok. Based on impressions. They gave very little kind of feedback or inspiration. And effort on my part.
I do not want this journey of discovery to be a travel vlog or blog. With lots of facts and figures. And for the viewers and the readers to engage and interpret what it is that I'm experiencing. The fact that we're moving forward is going to be my driving force.
There are some galleries in Cheltenham UK which do not come to the mark.
Very disappointed by the art that it was exhibiting and the lack of knowledge from the actual sales staff themselves.
A certain Cheltenham gallery represented the art of Bob Dylan. That's great, I thought and the sales staff say his work was so expensive because he's famous. Is Bob Dylan? More expensive due to his fame?
I explained that there are many others. Actors and performers in the industry of the arts that are actually artists themselves.
Sylvester Stallone, Pierce Brosnan, Tony Curtis, all of these. Each one of them.
Was one more expensive than the other because of their fame. It is a question they couldn't answer.
One of the.paintings promoted was basically “Snooze, you lose”. A comical
kind of copyright statement that everyone has said before. Really. I explained that there are copyright laws. Using it for monetary gains. Staff turned away confused.
Back in my studio I had a burst of energy to paint. Because I've been to the galleries maybe, I don't know, seeing other artists work. It's something that just excited me.
Painting, moving forward and traveling to encompass all these experiences was going to be beneficial to me, so I started experimenting by writing the words that I was thinking and trying to formulate logic?
KDP Amazon came in.My first book “Episode One- the journey begins” has been selling.
So to everyone out there that has bought the first episode, the “Journey begins”. Thank you. Thank you. It's clear that in order to promote your work, you need advertising and you need an advertising budget. Sadly being on Unemployment benefit, I didn't have that benefit.
The algorithm in Google is designed only to promote. Advertising and I was having to create interest in my book organically, for free, no money paid.
Using this through blogs YouTube channel. Sadly, even on Facebook, I can only get messages to at least 25. And so this is very difficult to grow. With no money.
Maybe one day on the sales of my previous book. Invest in promoting the next books in the series. And yes, again, thank you to anyone who has bought the first episode one, “The journey begins”.
It is important to connect with the art community. And ask for help and advice. The next book? LinkedIn gave me the most interesting feedback from artists and the difference.
Social media platforms fell flat, such as Facebook, Instagram, TikTok. All based on impressions, unique visitors, bounce rate, time and much more . They gave very little kind of feedback or inspiration.
I do not want this journey of discovery to be a travel vlog or blog. With lots of facts and figures. And for the viewers and the readers to engage and interpret what it is that I'm experiencing. Just reviewing our work. The fact that we're moving forward. Is going to be my driving force.
