1. Upload on a regular basis
We recommend you upload new artwork on a regular basis in order to keep your gallery fresh and up-to-date and your work will appear in the new artwork under 'shop for art' however we don't recommend relisting old work as these get indexed in search engines and will attract visitors and by re-listing you are losing traffic to that page.
2. Ensure you add international shipping
It's easy to skip past this in the hope that customers will contact you for a shipping quote but in most instances customer want a price there and then and are more like to order if a price is shown. You either use global shipping or per artwork shipping (see help notes in admin)
3. Add a portfolio piece
Make sure you have selected a portfolio piece that is available and you will appear in our A-Z artist section of the website.
4. Add a profile image and biography
Ensure you have a profile image and have updated your biography to the website, people like to read up about the artist they are buying from. We don't accept external links anywhere on the site so please do not add these.
5. Describe your work in detail
People like to know what they are buying and love details. Describe the artwork, your inspiration, the process and materials you used. Don't just say it's 'acrylic on canvas and ready to hang' be creative with the story you're telling people about the piece of work you've lovingly made.
6. Include at least 3-6 clear images
Buying artwork online can be daunting for people that can't see the work up close, so we highly recommend you add multiple images. This should include: a front cropped image, a side image, 1-2 close up images and the artwork either in-situ or in your studio. This really gives customer a feel for what to expect.
7. Add work to the offers section
Everyone loves to feel they are getting a bargain, so if you have work that has been in the studio a while it's worth adding to our 'offers' section of the site, here you can add up to 10 pieces it's also a great way to gain extra exposure on your work.
