Athena Mantle has a Twitter success story. Actually, she has two of them.
I just joined Twitter a few weeks ago after learning about it in an art marketing workshop.
I started following the editor of Southwest Art magazine and she posted something saying she was looking for figurative artists.
I replied to her tweet with info on two friends of mine that are figurative artists and she is now featuring both of them in the January issue!
On top of that I saw a repost from a gallery looking for new artists to show and I landed myself a solo show! Not bad for a few weeks on twitter. Twitter is a powerful tool!
Notice that this isn't magic. Nor is it rocket science.
Athena didn't just sign up for Twitter. She participated in the conversation.
She was helpful to a magazine editor and she responded when someone put a call out.
Remember that social media is about being social. It's about being helpful, kind, and generous.
Do you have a good Twitter-to-riches story?
