Social media networking is here to stay, growing and expanding in ways unimaginable.
Perhaps one of the most publicized, least understood of social media tools is Twitter. For creative businesses, Twitter is certainly more than just a channel to post the answer to “What are you doing?” (Twitter’s tagline and call to action). Twitter is a valuable PR tool, and when used strategically could multiply your visibility and help you reach into new markets, brand your art or product, change public perception, bring tangible results, even sales.
Only two months after creating Haley Art Gallery Twitter, I was contacted by a buyer from India interested in a seeing more images from one of our gallery’s exhibits that I had twittered about.
