Are you finding it difficult to find time for your art blog? So many artists are having a difficult time keeping their artist blog update which is resulting in the loss of art sales. This is a short series that will help you to be more productive on your art blog so can save time blogging and sell more art online.
Be More Productive On Your Art Blog Series
Are you trying to build your online art business but finding it difficult to find time to get everything done?
Would you like to know how to be a productive artist so you can sell more art?
The first step is to only spend time on projects that will show positive results.
For example, if you are spending an hour a day on Facebook and you only receive “likes” and no sales are coming in you are wasting your valuable time on Facebook.
Facebook “Likes” are nice to receive but they will not put money in your bank account.
Wouldn’t you rather take the hour a day you are spending on something that is not producing sales and uses it on something that will produce the results you are aiming for?
Let’s take a look at what produces the best results for online marketing:
- SEO (Search Engine Optimization)
- Email Marketing
- Social Media
SEO, email marketing, social media marketing, and your art blog will be the foundation of your online art business.
It sounds easy but it actually takes a lot of effort and time to be consistent on all of these areas.
I have learned over time that if I am consistent with my art blog I can accomplish more with social media marketing, email marketing, and SEO.
You might be asking, “How can writing an art blog help me save time on social media, writing newsletters and SEO?”
The answer is simple. The posts I write for my art blog are refurbished on my social media accounts, my Pinterest business account and the newsletters I send. The blog posts I write also help me to rank higher in the search results because I am keeping my website up-to-date with new content. Google rewards sites that are publishing content on a regular schedule by ranking them higher in the search results.
Art Blog Dilemma
So many artists have a tough time writing blog posts. It is easy to understand why because artists communicate visually not with text.
I was the same way. In fact, I hated writing. The only thing that kept me motivated was that I knew that if I wanted to build an online art business I would have to write a lot of blog posts so I could attract my target audience to my website.
I often found my self with these scenarios:
- I would sit at a blank computer screen while surfing Facebook on my smartphone.
- I would start a post but found it difficult to finish the post.
- Many times I would rewrite a post several times because I was not happy with the outcome.
- It always took me longer to write a post than I expected.
Has this ever happened to you?
The good news is that I am proof that writing will become easier.
At first, it will be a struggle but over time you will be able to write posts in a short amount of time that will drive traffic to your art listings.
Best of all, you will save time on social media, Pinterest and writing newsletters because the content is already written. All you have to do is post your new blog posts on all of your social media accounts, Pinterest and send it to your email list.
The amount of time you save on marketing your art online can be used in the studio creating new art.
