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.

Succesfull Art & Photography Marketing Tactics-How I Learned to Sell and Market My Fine Art and Photography Online

Succesful Art Marketing-How I Learned to Sell and Market My Fine Art and Photography Online

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 all artists.

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 buyers

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

I saw a discussion in one of my fine art LinkedIn group mentioned a free review and objective evaluation by a leading art marketing agency. So, I sent my portfolio and website to the marketing art solutions agency. www.MarketingArtSolutions.com at bestartmarketing@gmail.com

I received may 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 they are paid by their monthly subscribers.

The results were amazing. Almost immediately, I got some sales and visitors to my website www.modernmastersphotography.com increased significantly.

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 it by paypal, I then contacted the buyer about shipping and sent my photography unframed and rolled up in a tube.

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 was ahead of the game!

I eventually, I actually found some real statistics about the rapid growing online art market from a recent report from IBISWorld, copyright 2013.

“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-basedretail 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.”

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.

Where to Sell Your photos and Art Online

Where to Sell Your photos and SArt Online

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 atwww.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.

“We recognized that success in selling art online means knowing exactly what online galleries and their buyers are the best fit for specific styles, medium. Our services are specifically designed to match the characteristics of the online gallery, and its audience, with the artwork,” observed Tuck Tucker Agency Director at the Art Marketing Agency, Sarasota, Fl.

The agency also provides a written summary that includes information about what “specific” online galleries to match their artwork, ideas about how to “optimize” their art marketing, a review of your pricing structure for the artwork, even setting up the client artwork in the online gallery salon.

From Karen T. in Arlington, Virginia, photographer: “The agency suggested I shift from 2 pay galleries to 5 non-pay and I am making more sales and saving money. What I liked is that their services are turnkey- they really did all the work to set me up with the online galleries after the consultation. Thanks Art Marketing for making my life and art marketing a lot more successful.”

Ron W. Miami FL, Fine Artist Portraiture, remarked about the new services: “I was looking for a better way to sell my art.It was just too time-consuming and frustrating to know what online galleries to work with. The team at the agency have given me better online sales options. I recommend them.”

The artist or art collector may choose one of several consultation plans ($50 to $150) to review all aspects of their artwork including their website and marketing ideas.
