If you’ve had Write Newsletter on your task list for too long, it might be because you haven’t identified the individual components that will be required for the process to be successful.
Producing an artist newsletter is a project that consists of multiple tasks in order to complete. Writing is only one part of the newsletter process, and even the writing can be broken down into multiple stages.
You will always get stuck when you see a project on your to-do list rather than single tasks.
For more than 16 years I produced a weekly newsletter without skipping an issue for any reason. We’ve had the current system (of multiple tasks) in place for many years, so it’s a well-greased machine. I thought hearing about how we’ve made it work at Art Biz Success might help you create a blueprint for your newsletter process.
Here are the basic steps.
- Dedicate a place for storing and adding to content ideas.
- Make sure your writing time is defined and organized for maximum focus.
- Allow time to rewrite and edit.
- Send your artist newsletter draft to someone else to proofread it.
- Design the newsletter and send a test to yourself and your proofreader before scheduling it.
- Be available immediately after the newsletter is sent.
