Congratulations on taking this blogging challenge. By taking this challenge, I know that you are serious about building an online art business.
You will soon learn all the benefits of content marketing and this book is meant to keep accountable with your writing schedule.
It is easy for people to put off things that are not enjoyable. You slow down progress you could be making when you put off tasks that will help your business grow.
There is a lot of information in this book that will help you build a successful artist blog. In time, you will see an increase in traffic to your blog and online art gallery.
If you can stay consistent with your content marketing, you will see your traffic steadily increase. The more traffic you can generate, the higher your chance of landing a sale will become.
I have written 28 days’ worth of individual tasks. Everything I am sharing with you is from over fifteen years of experience with online sales and marketing.
You might not be able to accomplish each task in a day. That is ok. Just finish the task before you jump to the next one.
When you have finished with the 28 days, start from the beginning again.
This book will be your content marketing plan for as long as you have your online art business.
Best of luck with your business!
