Kickstart Your Artist Social Media Marketing

Artist Content Planner Mockup 1

It’s no secret that Instagram is a seriously powerful tool for brands and businesses to reach their target audience – and it’s *primed* for talented artists to find buyers for their artworks.

When Instagram launched back in 2008, it was far from a marketing platform–it was a space for sharing photos with your community for the sheer enjoyment of it. Now that Instagram (and social media in general) has transformed into a powerful selling machine, it’s important for artists and creatives to approach it differently – and highly strategically.

Ready to kick-start your social media marketing as an artist? Or maybe you’re looking to get serious about your side hustle and want to generate extra sales.

Plann will help set your strategy and execute on it. From instagram strategies specifically for artists, content prompts, daily caption starters, handpicked hashtags and easy cross-posting will have you growing your following and skyrocketing your sales in no time.

What’s included:

Artists Templates


Artists Content Inspo


Artists Caption Starters

From our Artist Plann’rs

“The way Plann helped transform my feed was so noticeable to me — the ability to match colors and composition behind the scenes made my work stand out more as a whole than individual pieces on their own. It may sound odd, but Plann gives me peace of mind! When I have a lot of things to post, I can reconfigure what order I’ll post it in to make it the most aesthetically pleasing grid is a fun challenge. It’s soothing for me to figure out what piece of the puzzle I’m missing, and to be able to know what to make next to make it all come together.”
