Would you like to sell your artwork online? You are fortunate to be an artist in today’s world.
You have all the tools required to promote and sell your artwork and handmade crafts from people around the world.
There is a catch.
There are thousands of artists just like you trying to sell their artwork online.
The good news is that there is an abundance of art collectors who are interested in purchasing art just like yours.
Your job after creating an online art gallery is to find where your potential buyers are and drive them to your site.
Why is it important to publish content (blog posts)?
The content you publish online will provide a way for your audience to find you.
Having someone click on one of your blog posts is the first step.
The next step is to create call-to-action that will direct them to where you want them to go after they have enjoyed your content.
Your call-to-action could be:
- Direct them to your art gallery.
- Direct them to a different blog post.
- Have them sign up for your newsletter.
The bottom line is that you want to have people find you in Google’s search results and make it easy for them to discover your artwork.
This is all done with internal links.
What is internal linking?
Internal links are links that direct a reader to another page of your site from a blog post that you have published.
Providing internal links in your art blog posts will benefit both you and your reader.
By including internal links in your post, you will provide a way for your readers to find more content that they are interested in.
For example, look at the hyperlink “newsletter” above.
The hyperlink is an internal link that links to a more detailed blog post about newsletters.
The link provides extra value to the reader.
There is an extra benefit. Your site will receive more page views because Google rewards sites that can keep their audience on their website for more extended periods.
Internal links also connect your content and give Google an idea of the structure of your website. They can establish a hierarchy on your site, allowing you to provide the most important pages and posts more link value than other, less valuable pages. So using the right internal linking strategy can boost your SEO! (Source: Yoast)
