Does LinkedIn work for me, as an artist?
Invited by Galery 1880/ Kunst of Art in Laag Keppel, for their new project, I decided to make a LinkedIn profile.
For an artist like me, it is important to be seen.
Because it was all new for me, I connected an '' important'' LinkedIn- adviser, Perry van Beek
and visited professional photographer Bas Weetink, because of my profile-picture.
After all this, I posted content on my profile and within no time,
I got comments and connection requests!
Most of the comments were about my profile-picture.
Bas is a very great photographer and I hope, he has got many customers!
This was not my intention at all.
Art is about emotion and inspiration and I wanted to share my work.
But all of a sudden, I got a message from Mark Evertzen, an entrepeneur fom the north of Holland.
He saw my work on LinkedIn and was really interested in my work.
He had to drive a couple of hours and after he visited my studio,
there was a large painting at the backseat of his car.
Thank you Mark!
Because of you , I know by now, LinkedIn does work!
And all the other ''messages''.... they give me a big smile!
