Welcome to Six Figure Artist!
Welcome to Six Figure Artist!
I am very happy to have you in our group. The lessons in this course will help you to create your own successful online art business.
Before you begin the course modules, I want to show you the big picture–where this course will take you in building your online art business.
As you work through the course, you will be learning how to build and put in place each of the important parts of the strategy shown in the diagram below.
This overview will give you a brief summary of each of these topics.
Website or Blog
Your personal website, group site or art blog is the main ingredient in this plan.
Your website is the core, the hub from which all other parts of the plan emerge. This is where your art and other products will be showcased and offered for sale on the internet.
It is also where you will provide your original content if you decide to go with an art blog as your website. Offering high quality original content plus quality products is the true path for success online.
Module 1 will help you decide where to place your online store (Blog, Personal Website or Group Website) and how to make it the best it can be.
If you decide to start an art blog, I recommend a WordPress blog. WordPress is, without question, the best blogging platform available. WordPress is easy to use. It can be set up in only minutes. And it can grow as your business grows. And best of all, it’s free to set up.
I also recommend that your site be self-hosted. That means that you should have your own dot com address, and your own hosting service. This can come later if you like.
I started my WordPress blog without being self-hosted and ran it that way for about a year. You can do the same if you like. It’s completely free to do it this way. And it gives you a chance to get into blogging and test the waters a bit before you go “pro” with your blog.
Email Marketing Funnel
An email newsletter marketing funnel is the most important part of this plan.
The lessons in Module 2 will show you step-by-step how to set up and operate a successful and profitable email newsletter funnel.
Your email newsletter marketing funnel is literally the financial beating heart of your online business. It will be your main revenue driver.
Whether you succeed or fail online will be determined on how well you understand and implement this part of the strategy. So take great care with this part of the course.
Free Organic and Pay-Per-Click Traffic
Modules 3 and 4 will show you step-by-step how to drive traffic into your funnel. It will focus on getting both free and paid traffic.
You want all the free organic traffic you can get, of course. But free traffic will only take your business so far.
In order to turn your business into a real money machine, you will need to learn and thoroughly implement pay-per-click advertising.
Jokingly, I call this part of the strategy "Feeding Your Funnel".
And you will be laughing all the way to the bank if you master these ideas.
