Are you thinking about selling your artwork? If you are, the first step that you want to take is to start a blog so you can share your art with the world.
Share Your Art With The World: Start Blogging
I am surprised that there are so many artists that do not have a blog. It might be because artists do not understand the importance of having a blog, or maybe they feel that they do not have anything important to say. If you are trying to sell your artwork and you do not have a blog, you are losing sales.
I have come across so many great artists on social media networks that do not have a blog. I try to find more information about them and there is nothing available. Those artists are soon forgotten.
It is unfortunate that they do not have a place where people could learn more about them. The internet is the new “Gallery” where people go to see and purchase art. Internet art sales are growing every year. If that does not motivate you to start your art blog, here are some more reasons to get started.
Share Your Art With The World
Not long ago, artists would dream of having their artwork showcased in their local galleries. The galleries would be the best place to show their art to many people that were potential buyers.
Today artists can create an online gallery that will showcase their artwork around the world. The more traffic their online gallery produces the better chance you will have of landing sale.
Your blog will be able to showcase your artwork just like the local art galleries. The only difference is that you will be able to reach a larger crowd.
Your blog will become the place that people will go to if they are interested in learning more about your artwork. Besides being able to tell a story about your artwork, you will also be able to make it easy for your customer to purchase the piece of art that they are interested in.
Many artists are gravitating to social media to showcase their art. There is no debate that showcasing your artwork on social media sites is important, but what if a potential buy wants to learn more about your art?
Your blog will be the place for them to receive the information that they are interested in.
Promote And Share Your Art With The World
Posting your artwork on social media is great to have your artwork seen. But does it tell people that it is for sale, or is it just another pretty image that people scroll by.
Your blog will be the place for you to promote your new and old art.
You will be able to announce to everyone your latest creation and provide a way for them to purchase it.
Not only will you be able to share your new art, but you will be able to share the story behind it. People feel more connected to a piece of art when they know the story behind it. If a reader feels connected to your story and artwork, you will have a better chance of landing a sale. Before the internet artists would have to tell their story to anyone that was interested, or put their trust in the workers at the gallery to tell the story of their art accurately. Today you can tell your story to everyone around the world 24/7.
Word of Mouth
There is no better advertisement than having a happy customer. They will share your art with all of their family and friends. If you have a blog, you will provide a place for your customer’s friends and family to visit and learn more about you and your art.
Here is how it could happen.
Your art is hanging in one of your customers home.
One of your customers cooks a dinner for some friends.
After a wonderful dinner filled with old stories and laughs, your artwork catches someone’s eye. They cannot stop looking at it.
Then the friend of your buyer asks “Where did you get that?”
Your buyer grabs their tablet and brings up your blog. They spend some quality time looking at your art enjoying a glass of wine.
You now have a new potential buyer because you have provided a place for people to see your art.
These are just a few reasons to have a blog. If you art planning on selling your art or you are trying to generate more sales, your first step should be to start a blog. Your blog will reach many potential buyers and separate you from all of the other artists in the world. Start your blog today and share your art with the world.
