You can write your personal stories like when and how did you start your journey as an artist. From blogging, you can build your loyal readership; later readers can be your regular customers asking for your oil painting. Writing words about the inspiration behind the painting and posting images of your studio can be swayed your readers or customers.
Send newsletter via email regarding upcoming event
For having a great fan following or to capture the attention of your greatest fans, the best way to do collect their emails ids and send them regular updates of your upcoming event or future art through email.
Shooting email is one of the best ways to connect with your fans but often most artists or bloggers feel regret for not having their fans’ email Ids from the beginning of the blog. So, never forget to ask their email address to engage with your buyers.
