We hope everyone is having an inspired and inspiring autumn! We've had an exciting season here at Artspan, as ever we're working to build our community and help you share your art with the world.
Improve Your Chances of Showing up in Collections and Articles
Artspan is a community, and we work better as a community when we share each others' art. We do this on Artisan's home page and on our blog through articles, interviews, and collections. We hope that you'll share your own work and the work of others on your own Facebook page, Pinterest page or blog. While we do our best to share as much work as possible, we tend to gravitate to artists who have built a complete and attractive site, who have enabled their shopping cart, and who have their own social media network enabled, so that they can share the work as well. To increase your chances of having your work included in our articles and collections, we recommend that you have:
1) a complete and attractive site 2) work for sale - click "Enable 'Add to Cart' Button" for each image in your artwork library 3) social media implemented - add icons so that people can share to Facebook, Pinterest and elsewhere 4) If you choose to enable watermarks, make them small and at the bottom right of your work 5) Add a bio and a photo in the General Site Settings in your Control Panel
If you need help completing your site or enabling your social media options, let us know… [email protected]
Autumn Referrals Special
Through December, you get one month free if you refer one artist; two months free if you refer two, and FOUR months free if you refer three new artists to Artspan. Our best offer ever!
On the Artspan Blog, we began a series on advice to get your work out there! We had a list of sites that accept fine art submissions, and a list of sites that accept jewelry, wearables, and craft submissions. This month we added a list of resources for artists.
