Another artist is making sales....due to email newsletters
, got another note a few days ago:
I have been using my newsletter a fair bit lately.... mostly because a lot of good news has come my way. This is a good thing. I also had asked people to forward my emails to others who might be interested and this has resulted in some good connections and SALES!!! (Yippee) About a month ago I also started adding a link at the end of the newsletter for people who were reading it (who hadn''t originally signed up) to sign up for the newsletter AND I put a similar thing on several blog posts. The result is that in the last 6 weeks I''ve had about 10 new people subscribe to the newsletter.
A few days later, I received the following:
Clint,So you inspired me. Thanks for continuing to tell artists that a mailing list and newsletter are important. It took me less than a week to put [my email newsletter] together and I have already sold two paintings from the email ... in less than three days.
Many artists are selling
....even in this economy....are you?
