Artists who blog consistently and on multiple sites have higher online sales and significantly more traffic to their personal sites.
If you want to sell work consistently online, you MUST have a strong internet presence.
This takes time and persistence, but is effective if done properly. That being said, below are a few blogging basics to help you maximize the success of your posts….
Blogging Basics…Maximize your Posts:
1.Include your name/tagline in the title box as well as title of painting and subject
Example.. "Reflections #43", Abstract Landscape Painting by Colorado Contemporary Artist Kimberly Conrad
(Contemporary Colorado Artist Kimberly Conrad) This is my tagline, you use yours
Another example: Colorado Impressionist Judith Babcock
2.Repeat some of those words in the body of your post when you write your description Example…8"x10" abstract landscape painting…..etc
3.Always use your labels box…do not enter too many keywords, only what is appropriate for the painting you are posting and your tagline
Example: abstract landscape paintings,contemporary landscape paintings,Colorado contemporary artist Kimberly Conrad
We would like to challenge you during the coming year to be consistent with your blogging, both on your personal blogs and the CFAI blogs.
Blogging consistently and on multiple sites is CRITICAL to building a strong Internet presence,which is why we created our state and specialty blogs, to provide you with multiple forums for posting your work.
While blogging is certainly not required, it is a perk of CFAI.co membership that we strongly encourage you to take full advantage, as it will be of great benefit.
