How would you like to have a post that you created for your art blog go viral? Are you trying to drive traffic to your artist blog? In this post, I am going to share with you a way to generate traffic using list posts.
Build Traffic with List Posts
How can you drive traffic to art you have listed for sale?
There are a few ways you can do this.
- Social Media
- Artist Blog
- Email List
These are the most common ways to refer traffic to a site or particular post.
Social Media works well for real-time news and building relationships with an audience.
YouTube is a great way to build brand awareness.
Artist Blog will be the tool that will generate the most traffic over time.
Email List will be your money-maker.
How Artist Blogs Generate Traffic
When people go to the search engines they are looking for an answer or solution to a problem they might have.
Google and other search engines like Bing will refer content that best answers the query in the search bar.
The content that contains the answer or solution to a problem is created in a blog post or blog page.
If the reader found the content valuable they will view more blog posts and pages on the site. In time the reader will start to remember the name of the site and frequently visit the site or blog because the site offers valuable content.
It is safe to say that the more blog posts you create, the better your chance of being found online becomes.
It is also safe to say that if you would like a reader to revisit your artist blog you will need to produce valuable content.
Can Artists Generate Traffic With List Posts and Sell More Art
It is possible to generate traffic with list posts and sell more art.
People enjoy list posts because they know exactly what they are getting and the content is to the point.
The reader can get a solution relatively quickly.
If the reader is interested in a more detailed post they would search for something more specific.
Producing content that attracts people searching for a quick answer as well as more detailed answers to their questions will increase your sales because people will become aware that you are an artist who also has art for sale.
What is a List Post
A list post is a blog post that highlights key points about a particular topic.
Many bloggers create list posts because they generate a lot of traffic to their site.
Some of the most popular and shared (viral) content on the web are list posts.
Here are some examples of list posts that I have written:
You can easily see from the examples above that the reader will get exactly what the title states.
If they click on 10 Easy Selling Art Online Tips to Boost Sales, they will find 10 tips to boost sale.
This type of content resonates well with people who do not have a lot of time.
Your goal is to attract them to your site with content they are searching for and build their trust. They will take notice of the beautiful art you have listed for sale and will go to you when they are interested in purchasing art.
That is how you can generate traffic with list posts and sell more art.
Why do List Posts Work
- They are easy to read. Most people read content on mobile devices on the go. It is easier for them to get the information that they are looking for by scanning through the list.
- Straight to the point. List posts get right to the point without rambling on. There will be a time and place that more detail will be needed. People interested in just the facts gravitate towards list posts.
- Valuable information. Most list posts share a strong point of view on a topic. If there is something that you feel strongly about a list post might be the best option for you.
- Easy to digest. There are many times that I go to a post and the paragraphs are too long. I find myself clicking off of that post very quickly. With list posts, you can digest the information easily. Most points can be made within just a few sentences.
How Does a List Post Generate More Traffic
People live busy lives and list posts are a great way for them to gather information relatively quickly.
Another reason lists posts are popular is due to a number of searches done on mobile devices.
People are surfing the web while they are waiting in line at the grocery store, in the waiting room at the dentist office, children’s events, and even during commercials.
When there is limited time to digest information, list posts work well.
