I really enjoyed talking to Sam Grover from The Big Idea about artists promoting themselves and their work.

You can read the interview here, but essentially, it’s:

  • Have a clear goal, and know what success looks like
  • Don’t get bogged down in meaningless metrics (And don’t compare yourself to others. Good advice for many areas of life, ahem)
  • Own your audience. Don’t rely on Facebook or Instagram’s mechanisms as they change all the time, not always in your favour

Hopefully there’s some ideas there to stimulate or reassure. As always with, I think your time is best spent working on a strong story rather than the minutia of social media / algorithms etc etc.

Welcome to my blog - here's a bit about the site. You should really check out sportreview.net.nz - it's funnier. But stupider. It's up to you, really. Here I am on Twitter, or email me at richard (at) richardirvine dot com.
