Google Plus For Artists – Interview with Artists Cliff Roth and Aaron Wood

As an artist, there seems to be no shortage of social media sites and platforms in which to connect with your audience. While trying to have an active presence on all of them all at once can seem daunting, and probably shouldn’t be your goal. Taking the time to evaluate and explore new platforms is an essential part of discovering what works and may not work for you personally, your particular art and audience.

There is no one size fits all approach here. Only the intention of finding what works for you.

  1. Very good, constructive, and helpful information. The comment about going back to “a village” mentality is very true. People still like doing business with people they like. Pressing the flesh is still a good cultural tool to use. People do not like being imposed upon, or getting inundated with useless emails and LinkedIn connections.

    The trick is NOT WASTING SO MUCH TIME on the Internet looking for HOW TO DO IT. This was very helpful.

    I am former Military and 67 years old. If people would be open minded enough about their personal potential this issue regarding age discrimination would not be the problem that it is if people my age would just use the tools that are available to them. No one really cares how old you are if you can provide them with what they are looking for.

    What becomes significant to me is that although technology has changed dramatically, the approach to doing business has not changed that much or that significantly.

    Very good video. This was very helpful. Thanks, guys.

  2. Hi John, I couldn’t agree with you more. Thank you for sharing your thoughtful insights with us.

    We appreciate your contribution.

  3. You’re welcome. I just put up a Fine Art America site. Not completed yet, but they price the prints reasonably and the trick is to make a lot of fast nickels and not just a few slow dimes. Artist want to make a living too.

    Link on Cliff Roth name in article is to his Facebook page that was shut down in 2012.
