Effective Facebook ads for artists

Let me make a ridiculous generalisation:

Artists want to sell their art without effort.

It’s a nice goal.

Well, Facebook ads gets us pretty close.

Yes it’s complicated and it’s easy to do it wrong, but if you go carefully and do all the right things, you can get to a pretty cool place where you just need to keep an eye on it and occasionally update it, and your art sells.

There’s a lot of talk about Artificial Intelligence (AI) at the moment, particularly with art creation. Well this is AI for you, it’s AI that sells your art.

It’s pretty damn close to perfect and I’ve been getting very good results for my own projects.

I’m looking to work with one artist on this. I don’t know how many will respond so if I get more than one (fingers crossed), I’ll have to choose.

I’ll give my time for free to this first artist and we’ll work together and try the system out. There are three catches.

The first is that you’ll need to pay your ad bill, so I’d want you to be comfortable spending £100 on ads. Of course the idea is that will come back to you many times over the years, but you have to shell out now.

The second is that I’m looking to use this as a case study. That means I’ll record our Zoom calls and talk about the results and hopefully you’ll be pleased enough to give me a testimonial. Obviously that’s a trust relationship, I’m not going to say bad things or reveal anything unrelated.

Thirdly, there are no guarantees of sales success. I can tell you I’ll give you my full attention and skill, but people are free to buy or not and so all we can do is make our best effort.

If you remember, we call it a ‘sale’ (or at least a success) if someone who has never heard of us before follows us on social media. So that may be where we start. We may go on to try to move them to your mailing list and then to a sale. That’s assuming you’ve got nothing going on.

But if you’ve a show, we could publicise that.

Or if you have low priced products such as badges and cards, patreon or a membership scheme then we could set up for that and maybe even make a profit.

We will need to work together on your campaign, but as far as you need me to, I’ll get you through the tech.

I’ll want to start reasonably promptly, also.
