Mobile First Internet Marketing Strategies Sell Millennials Art Online

by DerdriuMarriner

Mobile first internet marketing strategies are the channels that world marketplaces must refine to sell art the way Millennials browse and purchase: online.

Mobile First Internet Marketing Strategies Appeal to Millennials

Mobile first internet marketing strategies are the optimal ways to encourage art browses and art purchases by Millennials, according to a survey of 4,534 adults in the United States during March 2016.

The findings become accessible worldwide with the release of the American Attitudes Toward Art survey commissioned by Invaluable, online marketplace for antiques, collectibles and fine arts. They consider marketing and sales implications of rising U.S. consumer spending on arts and culture-related goods, from $119.11 billion in 1999 to $151.71 billion in 2013. They determine that the 65.3 percent of U.S. consumers purchasing art include 24.1 percent of 18 to 24-year-old Millennials and 48.6 percent of 65-plus-year-old Baby Boomers.

Rob Weisberg, Chief Executive Officer of Invaluable, expects that opinions about art and preferences about spending will make “the next generation of art buyers -- Millennials.”

Mobile First Internet Marketing Strategies Bring in Facebook

 

The 2015 U.S. Mobile App Report, released September 22nd, finds two-year digital media time increases by almost 50 percent and supports mobile first internet marketing strategies.

The report gives mobile apps direct responsibility for 54 percent of all digital media time and for more than 75 percent of total digital media growth. It has 18- to 34-year-old Millennials spending 15 percent of total mobile app time per month on information and news-gathering and 29 percent on social networking. Facebook is first in attracting social media app-related time, at 25.7 hours monthly, well in advance of Instagram’s 7.0, Snapchat’s 5.9, Tumblr’s 5.7 and Twitter’s 3.5. 

Pinterest joins Instagram as social media channels that 33.8 percent of 25- to 34-year-old, and 44.3 percent of 18- to 24-year-old, Millennials use for browsing art. 

 

Robert Klara, Adweek senior editor of brands, finds millennials discover art via social media in his post, "Millennials Are Discovering Art by Ditching Museums for Instagram and Pinterest," for Adweek April 15, 2016.

Mobile First Internet Marketing Strategies Can Impact Tourism

 

Art keeps the United States of America afloat since $64 billion in exported arts goods in 2010 and $75 billion in 2012 help reduce trade deficits.

The 2014 National Art Index statistics of two-year increases by 17 percent in exported jewelry, movies and paintings lead survey respondents to consider investing in art. They make 37.2 percent of 25- to 34-year-old, and 41.9 percent of 18- to 24-year-old, Millennials value art purchases as worthwhile investments in the long term. Twenty percent of Invaluable-commissioned survey respondents need to tour museums to consider and expand art-related investments while 15.9 percent visit galleries and 22.7 percent social media.

Mobile first internet marketing strategies offer tourism-related implications since 14 percent of respondents visit galleries and museums once a month and 38.6 percent once a year. 

 

Rain Embuscado, artnet News contributing culture reporter, finds that "millennials are inherently social media’s premiere generation" in "Study Finds Millennials Prefer Instagram to Museums," his April 14, 2016, artnet News post.

Mobile First Internet Marketing Strategies Determine Long-Term Success

 

Invaluable-commissioned survey findings predict that the daily operations of art galleries and of  museums throughout the United States will rely upon mobile first internet marketing strategies.

The socioeconomically powerful triangle of age solidarity, household income and purchase preferences qualifies as a persuasive predictor of financial success for art-related online marketplaces and websites. The survey reveals that 51.6 percent of 25- to 34-year-old, and 56.9 percent of 18- to 24-year-old, Millennials prefer online marketplaces and websites over in-person auctions. Online marketplaces and websites stand to sustain healthy business and traffic in Impressionism, the art movement that 42.1 percent of respondents deem the “most visually appealing.”

Accenture global professional services company thinks that annual $600 billion spending by 80 million U.S.-based Millennials browsing and shopping online will reach $1.4 trillion by 2020. 

 

Robb Report notes that American Attitudes Toward Art survey (2016) conducted by Invaluable finds Impressionist art as "most visually appealing over Old Masters, Asian art, Modern art and Contemporary art."

sandyspider, Revisits are always welcome!

sandyspider on 03/25/2017

Glad to have revisited.

katiem2, It puts them at the front of the line, which is good because with everything that the Millennials have going for them and with everything that they're facing, in terms of land, sea and space, it's a really competitive world.

katiem2 on 03/19/2017

Yes, I have two millennial daughters, they learn a lot from me and my driven ethics stating they will be ahead of their peers by adopting the habits and knowledge we have to offer, now that makes for an interesting millennial.

DerdriuMarriner on 03/18/2017

katiem2, Thank you for sharing Holly's story! Internet marketing and presences really make a difference: it's one of the benefits of being -- or living among -- Millennials.

katiem2 on 03/18/2017

A writer friend of mine, met her at hubpages sells her art on facebook, she has sold paintings in I think just about every state in the united states except two or so. Her name is Holly and she is amazing. I love her as both an artist and a human being, she is a wonderful human being. I am so impressed with how she has grown her art market, she will be famous with her work scattered across the globe.

sandyspider, Thank you! It's impressive how the opposite ends of the age spectrum, Millennials and Baby Boomers, particularly put apps and mobile devices to very good use, according to the survey upon which the article is based.

sandyspider on 03/04/2017

Apps and mobile devices are a daily thing. Good to read about the strategies.

DerdriuMarriner on 07/25/2016

blackspanielgallery, Apps are everywhere. Technological advance is a convenience, but the business of the technological age and the growing pervasiveness of its reach can mean a sleepless two to seven days every six months when the next set of app (and other cyber) changes go through.

blackspanielgallery on 07/23/2016

Interesting. I have to get to an understanding of apps.
