Over the past 20 months, my Instagram page has grown from 112 to 26,8k followers. How did I do it?
Why having an audience as an artist is so important?
If you want to turn your passion into your career or a side hustle of yours, building an audience is crucial.
Who's going to buy from you if no one knows you?
On the one side it can give you better job opportunities: Major studios might already know you because of your following and therefore hire your more easily.
This is the reason why many bigger artists had the opportunity to work with big names like Disney or Pixar.
On the other side, which is even cooler: With an audience, you can become your own boss and start your own creative business.
Think of all the successful artists on Instagram who make a living from selling their art - you can be that too. You just need to know how to build a strong personal brand as an artist.
An audience opens many doors to living your passion.
It's not your fault that you didn't grow so far!
Because you believed in the wrong ideas.
You probably heard this a lot from other artists:
"To grow your art-page just post consistently, work on your skills and be patient!"
Posting consistently and having decent art skills really isn't a guarantee for success.
In fact, you could post 200 artworks over the course of 4 years and still not grow, if you don't know what you're doing.
And you probably also experienced this.
The organic reach on most social media platforms simply isn't big enough to just grow through consistent posting - you also need to implement outside-the box-tactics to gain attention otherwise.
I am successfully growing my page for 2 years now and I exactly know which tactics work, which don´t, how to optimize your profile so visits convert to followers, how to gain reach on multiple levels, etc.
So I genuinely believe that everyone can grow their artpage if they know how and are dedicated enough.
But why should you listen to me? Here´s my story:
Back in October 2019 - shortly before the pandemic - I bought my first graphic tablet and decided to grow my artpage. 2 years later I have almost 30k followers - so this graphic tablet was probably the best 50$ investment in my life.
Because I was heavily interested in marketing I daily figured out new ways and tactics to gain more attention on Instagram.
That's why I was growing faster than the average. I grew from 0 to 7k followers in around 10 months.
(My page was named "furkantezy" and I had this profile picture back then: )
Because of my reach and a certain tactic (which you will learn later) I was also getting commissions 3-4 times per week:
This was the first money I ever made through the internet and it was an amazing feeling. Sure, sometimes it can be hard to work with clients, but earning money with something you love doing doesn´t really feel like work.
After earning some good money through commissions I later on decided that I want to change my creative direction, because I noticed that I personally am more interested in marketing than art.
That´s when I decided to rebrand my page to teezytheturtle, where I started to post artmemes and tips for artists.
There I also post tips and tricks for artists about how they can gain more reach on Instagram. Since I grew my personal artpage from 0 to 8k and then my art-theme page from 8k to 30k I really know what you need to do to become successful on Instagram.
I get DM´s daily asking for tips and tricks, and I probably helped over 100 artists in this time:
Because I was getting so many DM´s, I decided to reverse engineer my success and the success of other artists I helped and wrote all my knowledge down which accumulated within these 2 years.
For example: In the last 2 months I was putting barely any work in my page, didn´t hit the explorepage anymore, etc and therefore my reach and growth declined:
But then I got motivated again, and just implemented my own tips which I preach in this eBook and within 2-3 weeks I fixed my growth:
What you will learn in this eBook
The issue with most growth tips on Instagram is that they aren´t made for artists. Sure, "posting every day consistently" is a great tip but how should you be able to do that as an artist - you obviously can´t post an artwork every day.

What other artists say:
Okay, but how much does this cost?
If you would want to grow your page solely through ads you would need to invest several 1,000$'s!
I thought a lot about how much I should offer this valuable information for. So I just asked my readers and most valued the eBook at 30-40$:
However, you´re lucky! I really am a big fan of overdelivering and therefore currently offer the eBook for only 19.99$!
