The Importance of Links

"I thought since this was my first published article in sometime
a glass of wine might be in order!"

I occasionally submit articles to FineArtViews as a guest author. As most of you know I'm fascinated with marketing and marketing for artists in particular.

I feel strongly about the intelligent use of links and their benefits.

For most artists, the word 'links' refers to the Links Category on their navigation bar. Trust me, there is much more to this little word than what appears on the surface. You need to learn how to use links and how to make links work for you.

You can read "Linking...the mighty little 7 letter word" for more information on creating and using outgoing links, incoming links, and deep linking. Some great, easy to incorporate marketing for artists that will not only increase traffic to your site but encourage your readers to delve deeper and spend more time 'with you'. Isn't that what we all want...well besides chocolate and money.

Be sure to visit FineArtViews Archive for more art marketing articles written by artists just like you.

Dishonest money dwindles away, but he who gathers money little by little makes it grow.

Marsha, I couldn't agree more with this article. I didn't actually understand what I did until I tripped over it just this am. My mentor and art teacher had an excellent article I needed to comment on but I needed to become a Google Blogspot member. I became a member in about five minutes and made my comment to my teacher, Jill Goodell. I immediately saw my little blog spot icon and my name after I had made the comment. Now I need to get my web site established as I understand the importance of the links. Great stuff and I'm glad to be back visiting your excellent site! Best wishes!

I loved your post - and have followed your suggestions to link to several sites, including yours, a photographer friend, a place for supplies and an art video link. It has increased traffic for me as well as for them. Keep up the prodding of us - it works!

Marketing has always intrigued me. I'm pleased when told my articles are helpful.

I know we would always rather be sitting at our drawing tables or easels...but it's just a fact, marketing is a necessity. Glad you enjoyed the article.

Marsha, the thing I like so much about your articles is that they are new ideas to me and you deliver thoughts that would normally make my brain ache with such clarity. Thanks and hope you continue to get well!
