Sell Your Art Work By Creating A Blog
May 29, 2009 | Written by Gino | Category: How to Sell Your Art
With so much competition online to sell your art work, it is important to try more and more ways to diversify the ways you market your work and attract potential buyers. If you already have your own website set up then now is the perfect time to start an art blog that can draw in a whole new group of buyers.
Blogging Is Easy!
The good news is that blogging isn’t very difficult. Building your own website may have taken some work, but there are a number of free blogging platforms that make starting and maintaining a blog extremely quick and easy.
Start by looking at a few established art blogs and thinking about the way they set things up. You can then use a platform such as Blogger or Wordpress to get your own blog up and running, and give it a title either appropriate to you or your work.
What to Blog About?
A blog isn’t simply a promotional tool. You should view it instead as a source of information. What might your buyers be looking to learn? Perhaps you will include progress of your work, on general information on why buying art is such a great investment – both personally and financially.
Whatever you choose to write about, intertwining posts that are commercial in nature with those that are of real value to those looking for information will help to increase your chances of success. If your content is interesting you’ll soon build up a readership, and this is a great customer base should you choose to announce your latest work for sale on your blog!
Blogging is not going to instantly increase your sales overnight. However, over time it is one of the best ways to create a loyal customer base that is truly interested in what you are getting up to. Combine this with a passion for writing about art and blogging can be a great exercise!
