Have you run out of ideas for your next blog post? EBSQ Tips for Awesome Art Blogs will feature some of the more creative posts our artists are taking advantage of to spice up their blogs.
Product reviews are another great way to spice up your blog and offer something informative to your readers. Believe it or not there are thousands of people searching the web this very instant for a product review. They want to know if those paints are worth buying or if the latest image editing software is worth the high price tag. Writing the occasional product review can bring in new visitors to your blog and in turn introduce them to your art.
What does it take?
You can review anything. Maybe a new type of watercolor paper you are experimenting with or you could explore outside your profession. Reviewing something you are genuinely interested in also gives readers a glimpse of the real you, which is after all what they are looking for when they seek out your blog.
Rules of Thumb
- Always try to be objective in your review.
- Provide your own personal images of the product (and the results if it’s art related).
- Provide links so readers know where to purchase the product.
