Have you made any sales of your artworks through social networking sites like Facebook, twitter, pinterest, instagram?
This is a question I’ve gotten a couple of times.
Yes, I’ve made numerous sales through Facebook. To do so though, I have a fan page that I use to market my art. I would not recommend using a personal FB page to do your art business.
I’ve spent several years building a following on Facebook, and it has required lots of time and some money for advertising.

I’ve made a couple of sales through DeviantArt as well, but that site tends to be more social rather than commercial when it comes to art.
As for Twitter, I have a couple of thousand followers. Whenever I post art there for sale, I usually only get one or two click through’s to my website, and, if any of those pitiful few have ever converted to a sale, I didn’t catch it.
