E-Mail lists

Stamps created by Cynthia Norcross Willson
This podcast is an interview with Alyson B. Stanfield, A.K.A. The Art Biz Coach.  She discusses some extremely important steps to becoming a professional artist.  Her four tips are devote yourself completely to a studio practice, create an online emailing list, connect with other artists, and start writing about your work and never stop.  I have already discussed Stanfield's first tip and I will address the other topics in each of my next three posts.

This post is about creating an online emailing list.  An online emailing list is significant when it comes to building a community focused on your work. This can also be done through online marketing tools such as Facebook, Twitter, a blog, a forum or a website.

Tips to remember

A free platform for mailing lists is has a monthly rate option.

Make sure everyone on you list requested to be on the list and know the anti-spam laws. MailChimp will help you with this part.

Use the Blind Carbon Copy tab instead of the Carbon Copy or To options. This is out of respect for those on your list.

The Art Biz Coach discusses this in more detail in her blog post.
