Clint: There are two main steps all artists need to take to be successful with email marketing:
Step 1: ALWAYS ask any interested prospect you meet if they’d like to receive regular email communication from you (and if they say yes, add them to your newsletter list).
Step 2: Regularly send to your email list. Just send short updates about what’s happening with your artwork and your career. As far as the writing goes, just make sure you write personably and casually as if you were emailing a friend. It’s far more effective and fun for fans to hear from you as a person than it is for you to spend a bunch of time trying to make your newsletter sound like an article in the New York Times or something.
