How I Learned How to Sell My Photos,Art and Artworks in Worldwide Online Galleries

Sure online galleries sounded like a good idea. After all, online
galleries would  enable art buyers and collectors to see my artwork
worldwide,twenty four hours a day.

Sure sounds like a great vehicle to  to sell my and photography collections
to me….

Then I the found a press release from BestArtMarketing.com
(http://www.prweb.com/releases/2012/7/prweb9687656.htm)

that stated that today:

” there are more than two hundred worldwide online
galleries and they can  play a significant role in the success for any
artist,photographer or art collector.”

Even the late Andy Warhol was encouraging me to try to expand my art marketing business and efforts.

“Being good in business is the most fascinating kind of art. Making
money is art and working is art and good business is the best art.”-Andy Warhol

Eventually, I actually  found some real Statistics about his growing art market from a
recent report from IBISWorld (the report: http://creativesatworkblog.com/2012/02/ibisworld-report-predicts-growth-in-online-art-sales/

“predicts-growth-in-online-art-sales)estimates that the Online Art
Sales industry in the U.S. was worth about $287.5 million in 2011. This
figure includes the sale of original or limited-edition artwork
through online galleries,online auctions, online art fairs, and online
art dealing and trading.The sales figures included data from 716
businesses and covered the sale of paintings, drawings, sculpture,
photographs, and other media.”

According to IBISWorld analysts, the
market for online art sales has been growing in line with strong
demand from overseas markets and increasing access to internet-based
retail outlets.The growth in art sales through e-commerce and online auctions is
expected to continue through 2016, fueled by global growth in consumer
spending and increased access through more broadband connections.
Mobile apps are anticipated to provide further room for innovation in
online art sales.”

Here is a link a copy of that report:

http://creativesatworkblog.com/2012/02/ibisworld-report-predicts-growth-in-online-art-sales/

So, I am happy to report that I am seeing sales and getting checks and payments from all around the
world  from several of the online galleries. The visits to my ar website has INCREASED also.
I even hired http://www.theartmarketingagency.com/ to “post and describe my art, so
I dont have to take the time to do that do that my self anymore.

As Degas said: “art is not what you see,but what you make others see.”
and YES online galleries do deliver the eyeballs and opportunities.

7 Myths (debunked) about Selling Art ,Photography and Visual Art in today’s Online fine art marketplace

Common misconceptions about selling one’s art and photography online may hold visual artist back from artwork sales and marketing success in today’s online marketplace. Since estimates are that 1/2 of ALL artwork sales will be made online, successful visual artist need a strategy to develop exposure and sales from the Internet.

Since 2007, the Art Marketing Agency (www.MarketingArtSolutions.com) has been working with visual artists. Here’s the top misinformation and misconceptions that we get from our artists about selling their artworks online.
Snapshot

  • Myth #1: Online galleries charge a fee
    Reality: No. They are paid by their monthly Subscribers

    Myth #2: Your art could be stolen
    Reality: You have copyright protection and the imagery is LOW resolution to avoid reproductions

    Myth #3: Seller pays for shipping
    Reality: The buyers pays for shipping. The buyers also pays you “upfront” for the art purchase

    – you do not prepare anything or need to keep an inventory

    Myth #4: Best galleries are in the USA
    Reality: Not necessarily. The trend is that each Country has one top online gallery: ArtPrice in France, Saatchi in England, Artflakes in Berlin

    Myth #5:Online galleries don’t allow contact info (email,website) with the artists and “links”
    Reality: Online galleries that the Art Marketing Agency works with do permit this

    Myth #6: The exhibition are temporary and drop off after a few weeks
    Reality: Gallery exhibition(s) have NO termination date

    Myth #7: Build it (your art website) and they will com
    Reality: Not true. Exhibitions in worldwide gallery deliver a significant INCREASE in visitors to your art/photo website and is an excellent art marketing strategy.

    ” The path to success is to stop talking and start doing.”-Walt Disney

How I Learned to Successfully Sell and Market by Art and Photography in Online Galleries

send you art & photos samples to: bestartmarketing@gmail.com

Marketing and selling my fine art and photography was a challenging experience for me in today’s world of competitive arts marketing. Brick and mortar galleries were only accepting established artists. I had read about selling artworks online and how the online gallery market was rapidly growing for artist around the world.

Sure selling my photography online sounded like a good idea. After all, buyers could see my photography twenty-four hours a day and it could open my art to a whole new network of international buyers

After all, it was Degas said: “art is not what you see but what you make other see” and the internet could certainly provide the eyeballs I need to expand my art sales market.

I saw a discussion in one of my fine art LinkedIn group that mentioned a free review and objective evaluation by a leading art marketing agency. So, I sent my portfolio and website to BestArtMarketing@gmail.com and the Marketing Art Solutions Agency ,www.MarketingArtSolutions.com, for a free “objective” review.

I received many valuable tips, resources and suggestions from the agency. They suggested I post one hundred of my photos in the ten online galleries that they recommended. I learned that the online galleries they suggested were free as the galleries are paid by their monthly subscribers.

The results were amazing. Almost immediately, I got some sales and saw a large increase in visitors to my website www.modernmastersphotography.com

Surprisingly, the process of selling my photos online was easy.

Here’s how it works: the buyer saw my photos in the online gallery, paid for the artwork  by PayPal, I then contacted the buyer about shipping and sent my photography unframed and rolled up in a tube all within a week.

I even listed my photography with a few POD (Prints on Demand)-type galleries that the Agency suggested. I learned that these galleries are a new trend and they do all the work-printing, framing, mailing, collection of monies and the artist simply gets a check. http://www.FineArtAmerica,com is one such online POD gallery in the USA. Their commissions are between 30-40%, but the “good news” is the artist simply gets a check or PayPal deposit.

What surprised me was the online market is not about selling the “original” prints but instead is geared toward copies or giclees prints. If you do the math, in the world of sellingonline, you could sell fifteen giclees in one year in the ten online galleries for say $400 each ($6,000) versus selling the one original for say $1500 to $2500. It’s about the numbers of viewers and potential buyers and online galleries do deliver a lot more “views” of your artwork that a traditional gallery!

Speaking of numbers, I have retained the Marketing Agency www.MarketingArtSolutions.com to maintain my art in the galleries. I want to exhibit as many images as possible. For around fifty dollars a month, their experience staff will continue to post and exhibit my artworks with top quality tags and descriptions

Of course, as the agency suggested, the challenge is to turn the one-time buyer into a regular collector of my artworks.

That’s a challenge I welcome.

For once I am ahead of the game and 2014 is looking like the best yet.

A newsletter from the agency, www.marketingartsolutions.com has helped my keep in touch with the latest online art marketing news and trends.

How I Discovered a BETTER Way to Sell My Fine Art and Photography for Top Dollar

art ad

Online Art AUCTIONS can be very profitable! I figured why not sell and market my artworks and photography in an new type of Auction “for artists by artists”
 
After all,the leading art marketing service,the Art Marketing Agency,had introduced an Online Art Auction INNOVATION for emerging artists. This Auction seems to tip the balance in favor of the Artist to get fair values for their artworks.
 
I liked that New Modern Masters Auctions also provides “transparency” and delivers a much better (and more PROFITABLE) experience for Artists and Photographers including
·
Bidders may contact the artist directly- this is unheard of
Bidders may also visit the ARTIST website and portfolio- this is unprecedented!
 
I realized that in tradtional aucitons, artists  are at a serious disadvantage when it comes to “valuation” of their art to be able sell in an Auction.
The current Auction process dictates that artist “starting bid” and art valuation prices be “verified” based on the documented sales results in OTHER Auctions-not the real and actual values as determined by the Artist!
 
We’ll sell your Artworks in a New ONLINE Auction format (by artist for artists) for HIGHER art values AND based upon your suggested retail or your own sales “formula”- a much better “alternative” than selling in traditional Auctions.  .http://www.NewModernMastersAuctions.com 

 ” In a market that purports to be transparent and offering disclosure of conflicts of interest, this is not a level playing field,” Mr. Hedges, the collector, said….New York Times article 
 
 
The current Auction process is a “catch 22” because Art Valuation services ONLY accept your art prices that can “verified” by sales results in OTHER Auctions- not the real and actual values determined by the Artist!
 
…consider this from www.Akoun.com a leading art valuation service since 1985:

“To obtain an auction valuation, you must send us by email all available evidence of results obtained through sales made through public or private auctions (auctioneers, bailiffs, or pages printed from websites).”
 
So,I signed up  at http://www.VisualArtsMarketing.com for FREE inclusion and “postings” into their Auction and to have them exhibit my artworks in worldwide Online galleries.

I liked  their Money Back Guarantee was that I got a refund if I did not sell at least $400.00 in 90 days and allthe great “testimonials.”

It would be great if my art would be seen by MILLIONS of art buyers within ten (10) days!
 
A sample of one of their art clients ONLINE galleries also helped me see whay mny gallery would liook like.
http://web.artprice.com/store/Richard-Smukler-Fine-Art-?l=en 

As a Art Marketing Agency client, i am not only in the Auction but also I received all  the many tools and benefits (SDEO, emails,postings) of being a client of the Art Marketing Agency at :http://www.visualartsmarketing.com/tools-benefits.php  

My sales and website visitors have “skyrocketed”. all because I “googled” sell my art.

How I Put my photos and art to work for me in Online Galleries for Profits!

I had accumulated thousand of photos and I finally decided to put them to work f or me in in Online galleries.

I had heard about the the rapid growth of buying and selling art and photography in online galleries,so I decided that NOW the time to consider a serious ONLINE marketing strategy to sell my photos of my pets,vacations,travel art,family for extra profits and recognition.

As Edgar Degas observed:

“Art is not what you see see,but what you make others SEE.” ….ow could he have known that ONLINE galleries may be the ideal medium to promote yourself and sell MORE of your art and photography-worldwide 24/7?

Do you know that some estimates suggest buying artworks online may account for half (50% ) of all arts sales in the near future?

Simply,take a look at recent developments about selling art online:

* Christie’s Auciton House, NYC, announced selling art online to reach a broader worldwide,WSJ Marketplace Sept 6,2012

* Costco sells more art ONLINE than in their aisles:New York Times:Shopping List:Tuna Detergent,a Warhol? Oct 21,2012

* October 26,the Washington Post reports INCREASE in younger art collectors and philanthropist

I heard about the Art Marketing Agency and how they help people sell their pictures in online galleries in an article in the

The Boston Globe:

http://finance.boston.com/boston/news/read/22402995/Profits_Abound_for_Artists

They said they even had one gallery they work with in France that has registered art buyers and has 2 millions to their website a month.

A recent article includes statistics from a recent IBIS Research about the rapid growth of buying and selling artworks ONLINE

So I wondered,what contributed to the Rapid Growth in Buying and Selling Art ONLINE?

i found out there are many other reasons buying online made sense including

the easy and increased (worldwide) access to the Internet:worldwide 24/7

and importantly their RETURN Policies:

Seems today’s ONLINE galleries allow the Buyers to buy and evaluate the artworks in their home or office and return it -they simply pay shipping and restocking fees….

I visited the Agency website at http://www.VisualArtsMarketing.com and liked what I saw. I also liked that they do “all the work.”

I simply send them the jpeg photos with a description and the size and prices I reuire and they do all the rest.

Immediately I noticed alot more “visitors”to my website and even got name to follow with for future sales.

I look forward to a day when I can show my family my first check or my namein print as a photo credit.
