Online Marketing for Self-Represented Artists
I have been approached by a couple of members of the local art community to conduct a seminar/workshop in "Online Marketing for Self-Represented Artists" - possibly at the Arts event in May. I love the idea, but my house is up for sale and it is possible that I will be living in an exotic tropical place by May so I cannot commit to a presentation in May. But, I could write a booklet that would be available on my site for less than $5.
I am not an expert in site building and I am not an expert in marketing. But, I would be happy to share: how I built my own site, what I tried and what works for me, how to get a domain name for less than $9/year, how to track keywords, how to get stats on visitors to the site, the secrets of getting a reliable and affordable merchant credit card service, and how to get visitors to come to my site. In short, I can describe how I did it and you can use it as an example for doing it for yourself.
The reason I am blogging this is to ask you what you think. Would you be interested in such a booklet? Would you buy it? What would you like to see explained in it? Anything else you would like to add?
