Mobilize Your Art Marketing

by Clint Watson on 3/31/2015 8:24:26 AM
2 Comments

However, I want to clarify something: I am not recommending you make your site "mobile friendly" just because "Google said so." Google isn't our boss, nor is she our master. In fact, I often recommend artists don't need to worry much about SEO or Google rankings. No, it's not because of Google...we are recommending you make sure your site is mobile friendly because that's how most people visit the web now. [...]

Lessons From the Gym: Trust Me

by Luann Udell on 3/26/2015 7:37:41 AM
12 Comments

Once we can look into the eyes of another person and see another human being who’s every bit as complex, lovable, contradictory, and confusing as we are, even those who are as yet undecided about our work, then we can make better decisions on how to handle their complaints, their doubts, their questions.

The Best Way to Sell Your Art Through Search Engines

by Dave Geada on 3/25/2015 7:53:37 AM
17 Comments

You shouldn’t waste time creating long lists of keywords you want to target and writing a lot of content packed with those keywords in blog posts designed to get good search engine rankings. And you shouldn’t spend an inordinate amount of time setting up links between your website and other websites you think might help your search engine rankings. What you should focus on instead is making sure your website shows up first when collectors search for you by name (which is actually a lot easier to pull off than these other examples). [...]

The Financial Frustration of Framing Your Paintings

by Carolyn Henderson on 3/23/2015 7:40:16 AM
25 Comments

The odd thing about framing is that, while for some reason it is expected to be up to the artist to frame the painting, most galleries and shows will not allow for the expense incurred and deduct the frame cost before assessing their commission. And a frustrating number of buyers announce that the first thing they’ll do after they buy this work is to remove the frame and replace it with another one, and will the artist consider taking back his frame and deducting the cost from the painting?

Why Can't Artists Be Like Writers?

by Christine Marx on 3/20/2015 9:02:58 AM
42 Comments

But is it deceptive to have a "pen name" as an artist? Some would say "yes!" and others would say "no!" I don't think so, if the work is so markedly different. You almost can't present these completely different works to your galleries. [...]

Art Transforms Lives

by Clint Watson on 3/17/2015 8:52:54 AM
10 Comments

So, how does FASO decide what markets to enter, what products to build, or what features to pursue? We ask ourselves: does it help people share art? Does it help enrich lives? Does it have the potential to take a powerful, emotion-inducing artwork and connect it with the right person? Previously, these were gut-level unconscious questions. They have always been in our DNA. The only change we've recently made is putting this guiding principle explicitly into words. [...]

What Is Your Art Worth And Where In The World Is It?

by Tom Shropshire on 3/13/2015 9:13:30 AM
10 Comments

One of my favorite things is to hear from a collector I’ve never met, who seeks me out to tell me they purchased one of my early works on the secondary market (Ebay, Estate sales, etc.), and to express how much it means to them. I’m always fascinated to hear where and how they found my painting. [...]
