The Art of Business

There is artistry to the business of writing.  Perhaps not as much artistry as in the writing itself, but the business of writing relies on intuitive, artistic qualities that go beyond the nuts-and-bolts science of business.

Like writing, your business approach will require both craft and art to attain success.  So, next time you sit down to work on the business-end of your writing, think about what you’re trying to accomplish and how your artistry can impact what you’re doing.  This is especially important in how you reach out to your audience, but also involves your business model and your growth strategies and tactics.

Put a little art in your business and watch your business grow.

    -sigh- I have trouble enough just getting my head around the basics!

  2. That’s actually the perfect time to incorporate artistry into the process. Worry less about what everyone says you “should’ do, and focus on those parts you understand and work from there. For example, reaching out to people within the business on LinkedIn–don’t try to assume an identity that isn’t you, be yourself and connect with others who enjoy you as you are (myself included). When it comes to reaching out to readers, do the same. Don’t be afraid to let your personality leak through–it builds relationships far better than an assumed identity can do, because the trust is mutual and inherent.

    So next time that you have a quirky, reader-oriented thought that doesn’t quite seem professional–take the risk. If you get a strong response, build on it. If you don’t, oh well. Try again.

    Simple, but not easy.
