How To Create Content For Your Art Business
There is a certain amount of content we need to regularly produce for our art businesses. This may be blog posts, social media posts and newsletters. Rather than spending time creating these each week, why not put aside a day or two at the beginning of each month, and get it all done in one go!
Content planning days make batch-creating your content so much easier, so that you never get stuck wondering what to post! By getting organised with your content planning, you can plan out all your content without feeling overwhelmed. Source ideas for content that supports your overall annual goals and set yourself to batch-create your content in no time with these tips below.
