Can those you engage with on Facebook easily learn more about you and your art?
As artists, many of us are engaged on facebook in groups. We discuss techniques, tips and share our experiences with like-minded artists. But what happens when a fellow artist that you meet and interact with on Facebook is interested in learning more about you and your art? Do you make it easy for them to learn more?
On most groups, promotional posts are not allowed. So, the only way someone can really learn more is to click on our personal profile and see what they can see and learn about you. However, most of us like to keep our personal profiles private, with only close family and friends allowed to see our personal timeline posts. For this reason, I highly recommend creating a public-facing Facebook page for your art… if you haven’t already done so! Then, list that Facebook page as PUBLIC information on your personal bio, for anyone who wants to learn more about your art.
The video below demonstrates how to add your professional Facebook Artist page to your personal profile and control who can see it, while keeping the rest of your personal profile private.
