Traction: Build a community

A point I see quite regularly when people converse about writing, or art in general, is the general belief that if something does not yield results straight away or even after a while it still doesn’t, it is better to leave it than continue to pursue it. Many individuals are troubled by the idea that if their work is not publicised on a large scale instantly, their work is of poor quality and therefore must abandon it.

Do not do that.

In order for a piece of work to acquire traction it must have built a community behind it. A fan-base of sorts. The only way to do that is, you guessed it, by continuing to work and produce more content. If people are not viewing your content, you cannot create a loyal following which means you shall not grow.

Working hard and smart is incredibly important when making art. You need people to want your work. You need people to crave it, to check your page constantly for updates, to hunger for your content!

Persistance is key. If you do not keep producing content, you will not further yourself. Your thoughts are important and that is why you must make sure that people view it. Work everyday if you must at improving your work and furthering the fanbase that wait your content production.

The world needs more artists, entrepreneurs- people that desire to make a change for both their life and the world around them.

Dont settle for anything less than you deserve. You deserve more than you think.
