I have a lot of videos on stock sites. To increase sales, is it worth it to advertise a video somewhere on the Internet with a link to a stock portfolio?

I think NO to much for You, but will work for stock sites for sure.

I don't think so, your efforts would be like a grain of sand on a beach compared to marketing that stock sites do on their own anyway. Also if you manage to get someone onto your portfolio, nothing warrants they'll stay there and not just click on similars and you just successfully marketed (wasted time and money) someone else's portfolio.

Only makes sense to advertise Print on Demand ports, imo

You will be wasting every penny of advertising if you did.

Your target audience would be a person or business which doesn't know about microstock, but that entity almost certainly has no requirement for it in their life if they haven't already used stock.

Plus anyone who doesn't know about microstock, probably doesn't know much about copyright and if they want a photo for their business or project they'll just use whatever comes from Google Images.

Steve Heap writes about this lots. I don't promote too much of my POD port as he does.

For a twitter, the #SpringForArt hash tag is recommended there. And now what is the actual hash tag and where is it written in them?

Hey Brasilnut thanks for that link, the guy has a load of informative stuff, especially on using social media, something I have wanted to do to promote my art but have no idea how, my attempt at blogging makes me feel like I'm talking to myself

Has it increased your sales?
You write that #BuyIntoArt is a group. But I see on twitter that this is a hashtag that everyone adds. If this is also a group, give a link to it.

In the comments on his site, I just noticed this one:  https://geogalleries.com/

Just in case someone reading here is looking for another print service gallery. They look limited, in that they don't do all the assorted items, or maybe that's good, because the artist can select what you want to offer and the markup. There are some other of the usual POD items, but mostly prints and framing.

"Geo Galleries uses FinerWorks for order fulfillment."

Now that I look, some people post an image and then a dozen hashtags? Someone please explain how that adds value.

I found this, Pinterest, just looks like someone has piggybacked on the hashtag. I don't know...  https://www.pinterest.com/shellifitz1962/buy-into-art/

"A group board for the #BuyintoArt team of indie artists at Fine Art America and Pixels.com to share promotional pins of the amazing art they create and that can be yours when you make an investment and buy into art."
