Blogging can be a great tool for any craft business, regardless of how large or small. A site can stand alone or it may become a component of a bigger website. Should you not have a website and aren't thinking about starting one at this point, a blog can nevertheless become a useful tool. Consider adding it there, should you have a website that would not include website.
Bear in mind that blogging should really be only one of a handful of advertising components for your business. It really can be easy to focus all of your time and effort on your latest endeavor, but do not neglect your other marketing promotions. These additional campaigns such as those through mailing lists and social websites will still be significant.
Above all, once you have a site, do not only post about your personal listings and sales. I am certain you have seen people do that before, if you follow crafty Myspace pages and Twitter feeds. It's equally as tedious and unsuccessful on a site. You can post about sales and listings, but you require other characteristics as well to mix it up. I suggest limiting these articles to 1-2 each week at the most.
Finally, do not get overwhelmed, especially if you're just starting out in the blogging world. Beginning using exactly what you can and build from there. It takes time to understand everything and get into a regular blogging routine. Don't believe that you have to follow all of the ideas within this hub. I surely don't comprise all of them in my own crafty weblog. Select and choose what makes sense for your work and your company. Also consider what you will enjoy writing about often.
Another vital component for your own website is every thing in moderation. Actually the best website functions should just be utilized so often. Turn attributes and issues during every week or month.
Best of luck!
Blogging Systems
For those who have not previously chosen a system, here are a couple to consider. These are just a few of the very popular options at this time.
Blogger: Blogger was joined by me soon after I joined Etsy because that is where several Etsy customers have their sites. Is it one of the most sophisticated blogging program available? No. Does it serve my wants for my crafting site? Yes. I've discovered it is helpful to be on the exact same platform as a lot of my Etsy team-mates.
Wp: I Haven't used Wordpress individually on this website so I can not communicate a lot of view. To get a evaluation of Wordpress and Blogger, check out this post. Wp has options for site designs while Blogger does not.
Livejournal: I feel like I need to give a shout-out to Livejournal because it is where my personal website has been on line since 2002. Although I spend loads of time on Blogger now, I still enjoy a lot of functions on Livejournal more. There's a reasonable amount of basic and Etsy crafting existence there in addition to a stronger total community than Blogger therefore it is not a terrible spot to enter the crafty blogging scene.
The fundamental site functions for all three platforms are free. For individuals that are skilled with HTML or are more driven with developing blog layouts, all three of the aforementioned systems provide a variety of options for customisation (a few of which are free, a few of which are perhaps not). I have not fully researched this with my personal or crafty sites because it's not where my passion is, however you can fully optimize your website's potential with a really personalized layout.
As mentioned above, still, you can have a website through your own web site. Some site hosts provide themes for this. If you're working with a website developer and have not discussed this topic with them before, bring this up sometime.
Ideas for Articles
Do not feel restricted by this list. Most crafty people think of new ideas on a normal basis. Post issues and features are no different. I am continuously surprised by the articles that I read on my own favourite sites. Simply the sky is the limit.
Work in progress/sneak peeks. Visitors love a review of your creative process. Consider displaying some pictures of the way your piece required when you discuss the listed item in your site, should you not want to make different work in progress posts.
Inspiration. Many artists are fascinated by the inspiration procedure. Present the world what inspires you. Consider natural landscapes, color combinations, and structure.
Personal. People enjoy seeing the man behind the art. Share a little about what else is going on in your own life. Personally I have found that folks love seeing photos of me, my partner, and my kitty above about other things.
Studio/workspace. Share some photos of the studio and workspace. Consider this an inducement to straighten it up before sharing it with the world, in case your studio is really messy. Consider additional facets of the creative process, such as for example your photography capturing space. Inspiration may be gained by other artists out of your own great ideas.
Give-aways. A giveaway of one or more of your products can be an excellent tool for attracting new website fans and gaining new shop enthusiasts. Usually a gc or something that won't have to be fitted (i.e. a pendant necklace, a pair of earrings) function nicely for giveaways. If you offer a customized item, consider just how long you'll have to put in the finished product.
Attributes. Offering other Etsy items on a weekly basis continues to be among my most productive website features. I regularly develop more blog fans through this than every other attribute. I got a couple of features that I do every month and then I mix additional matters into the turning. Some bloggers make their characteristics into a contest. Other bloggers often decide designs based on their very own new listings (i.e. shade mix, substances, and so on.) If you are a part of a team or teams on Etsy, consider features that comprise your team-mates. The two most popular
features that I have noticed are Monday Mood Boards and Fri Characteristics. Ensure that you contact retailers that you function. They are going to appreciate the telling and may encourage the place for you.
Tutorials/free patterns. Even though you promote patterns, you may need to share tutorials or free designs for some other crafting efforts or simpler items. Should they fit into the spectrum of the blog they do not need to fit into your specific products.
Advice. Your advice could be about anything associated with producing, Etsy, marketing, blogging, and so on.
Personal or company goals and strategies. Any business owner knows the importance of setting and working toward goals. Putting them out for everybody to read will give you accountability. It may give other crafting ideas to business owners for their own shops. You may need to talk about some of your own personal goals on your site too (i.e. weight loss, saving money, and so on.).
Wish-lists. Wish lists are another great solution to feature products from other vendors. Some folks prefer to do this on a weekly basis. I use wish-list articles for my birthday and Xmas.
Additional giveaways. Choose some of the give-aways that you really like and market them on your own site. You do not have to encourage each and every one that you simply discover.
Recipes. You may post recipes of new things which you simply attempted, old favourites, seasonal recipes, or anything else that you get inspired to make. Although site isn't themed around cooking, many crafty individuals enjoy new recipes. I also believe that recipes match the handcrafted/DIY nature of crafty sites.
Playing popular blog topics. Like, many bloggers participate in Wordless Wednesday. Try to find website topics with link ups, like this 1. Link ups are great way for other writers to find your blog. Alphabe-Thursday is yet another popular topic right now, also.
Share resources. Is there a superb new promotion tool that you only identified or articles about Facebook feeds which everyone should study? Create a post about this. I do a weekly link list round up on my blog with resources, courses, and recipes.
Interviews. Have you got any favorite artists which you had wished to encourage or new artists that you just had wished to interview for your blog? Ask them if you can interview them for your blog. Many artists would like to try this and value the publicity. In the event you do regular interviews which are well received, you may start getting requests from artists who would also like to be highlighted.
Guest blog articles. Consider asking fellow bloggers that you really respect to write guest posts on your website. They may manage to discuss tutorials, practices, or guidance for your visitors on issues that are useful to many usual content. Check out this great post here for more insight on this topic.
Treasury attributes. Many Etsy shop owners love treasuries which they curated together with submitting their treasury characteristics. I am fortunate enough to have lately made this a standard feature on my blog and have my Etsy things included in treasuries each week. I've inspired others to accomplish that, also. Make these articles intriguing. Do not just dump loads of treasury screen photographs. Instead, for instance, promote products from the curators or talk about why you enjoy the treasury designs.
Seeking feedback. The feedback does not need to be related to your art though it certainly be. Also think of creating space, time management, photography, promotion, etc.
Book reviews. Have you ever read any making books lately? Consider reviewing them on your own site. Consider publications linked to business, advertising, etc. as well.
New goodies. Did you simply grab some new art supplies? Promote local shops, trade shows, or other crafters, such as if you bought handmade equipment (i.e. handspun wool or lampwork beads).
Other crafty efforts. Most crafty people do not just create the products they promote. They can be constantly producing other issues, too. Share these activities in your website. For example, I produced cork table coasters for lots of relatives this past Christmas and wrote about it on my blog.
Create fairs and celebrations. You can promote your own fairs and festivals along with discussing how they travelled. I frequently reveal info regarding my prep before displays. In addition, I share photographs of my own booth after the displays.
Special discounts or rewards. Provide a reason to folks to check out your website. There should be articles there that is not accessible anywhere else (Facebook, Facebook, and so forth.). One unique item of content that one can provide is blog only specials.
Additional Guidance
IMAGES. I cannot stress this enough. Whenever it's possible, include pictures in your posts. People love to have visuals for almost any theme. Get in the custom of using normal images of your own crafty processes and before very long, you'll have more pictures than you'll ever want on your blog.
Comment. Take some time to see and comment on different sites. They don't all have to be particularly linked to your own site. Leave substantive comments. You really do not need to include tons of website links and contact details in nearly all of your comments. It's most likely that individuals will start looking at your website, should you comment regularly.
Links. Link them all to your site, in case you compose crafty hubs. I got a sidebar hyperlink area for this on my site. You may supply invaluable resources to your blog visitors and generate more traffic for your own locations.
Marking. If you're a HubPages writer, hopefully you already know the importance of doing keyword research, including utilizing the Yahoo Keyword Tool, and marking your locations appropriately. This same guidance applies to your blogs.
Booking posts. It can be valuable to compose posts beforehand and schedule them for later in the week or month, unless you're extremely disciplined about composing your posts early in the evening on a regular basis. Lots of bloggers choose to schedule their posts to go live early in the morning therefore the posts are up in readers' site databases when they first join for the day.
Market. Get your own articles out there on your Facebook fan page, Twitter, etc. Syndicate your blogs so that you do not really have to publish links by hand. Please allow this promotion for enterprise applications. Do not spam your personal accounts with plenty of links.
Teams. Share your posts to your Etsy associates. Lots of teams have normal chat strings or specific publishing places for blog post links. Visit your team mates' blogs inturn.
Site appearance. I don't want to overpower you with information regarding this unique aspect, bhe bottom line will be to make your blog fascinating without being cluttered. Produce a template that satisfies your company including your blog. This may take some time in case you have never had a blog before, but start easy and work from that point. Take a look at these free Blogger themes to get started.
