This Week: 10/21 through 10/27

By admin in Weekly Preview

Monday in Selling Art Online – In tomorrow’s SEO for Artists article, I’ll explain how to choose a strong domain name for selling art online plus a few tips on creating good page URL’s for your website or art blog. Believe it or not, all of that ties in to getting more traffic from Google and the other search engines. Don’t miss it!

Tuesday in Art Movements – Now here’s an art style/movement you may not have heard of—it’s called De Stijl, and it’s quite a bit different from the last few movements I’ve talked about on EE. Check back in on Tuesday to find out what I mean.

Wednesday in Featured Artists – More reader submitted artwork coming up! And you know, I’d love to get more submissions of mixed-media and non-traditional media, so if that fits you (or even if it doesn’t!) feel free to send in your own art for consideration.

Thursday in Selling Art Online – This Thursday I’ll be reviewing an art website that only sells work by student artists in high school or college. As always there are pros and cons, but I think it’s an interesting niche and well worth the mention.

Friday in ??? – If you haven’t yet submitted an article to be published on EmptyEasel, here’s your chance! Send in any art techniques, art opinions, or general art advice that you’d like to share and I’ll pick one to publish on Friday.

If your article is chosen, I’ll link twice to your online portfolio or art blog, which usually means a guaranteed boost in traffic. For example, here’s an email I just received from Corinne Galla who wrote this article for EE a few weeks back:

Hi Dan! I wanted to thank you again for publishing my article last month. So far, about 64% of the traffic driven to my website has come from Empty Easel referrals, and about 12% of my blog visits have come from your website referral, too! You rock!

And I’d like to thank all of you who’ve written articles already, as well as everyone who participated in last Friday’s “article by committee.” I’ll be sure to do something similar again. . . maybe even a weekly poll?

Actually, I like that idea. Let me know if you have a good question that you’ve always wanted to ask a bunch of artists.

And here are the articles from last week one more time:
