One of the most satisfying aspects since launching ArtsHacker has been watching the contributors work organically from each other’s articles and ideas. Unlike the coordinated multi-author series, it isn’t uncommon for one contributor to read a post from a fellow author and think “I’m so glad they wrote about that and since they brought up the topic, we should really be sure to think about this additional perspective.” As a reader, it provides an online environment akin to being in the middle of one of those shop talk sessions with your favorite peers; the kind that inspire as much as they challenge.
The most recent incarnation of this is a pair of posts about how to go about using Facebook ads.
The first was from Jonathan Eifert who covered a very straightforward approach to using a small investment in advertising via boosted posts to positive effect.

And since it’s ArtsHacker, the authors don’t shoot off a string of good ideas and concepts punctured by a “see ya around!” No siree. You’re going to get all sorts of illustrated step-by-steps to make sure you aren’t left hanging and can turn that concept into good old click, click, done accomplishment.
So yes, there’s nothing but love when a plan comes together.
