Ok, so let us assume you’re starting out in the arts, or any other business for that matter. Yes, art is a business (writing, acting, painting, etc.) and this post is for all you aspiring artistic folks out there.
When you start a blog or a website, your goal is to obviously introduce yourself, but you also have to provide a valuable service to people who come to your site, because, you have to remember that it’s not going to always be about you, but more importantly, how you can help others.
Provide valuable information, do be clear and concise and experiment with what type of information your web visitors are seeking, and, be sure to give them what they want. This way you establish yourself as someone who genuinely cares about the welfare of others. People will pick up on this, and love you for it.
Offer helpful links, and the next thing you know, you’ll be an expert before you even know it, and again, people will love you for it and tell others. You’ve probably heard this before but word-of-mouth is the best way to get your name around. Expensive advertising can help, but when you’re starting out you’ll need to keep your costs down.
So, always remember, content is King, or…Queen.
