Besides BAP of course!

I'm having huge non-user-friendly issues with the Flash Templated website I have, and I'm curious if and how you guys use a personal site to show your work and look as professional as possible while doing it!


Advice and assistance is appreciated!

Hi Matt,

I don't have a website with Flash. I find that websites with Flash take too long to load.

I don't actually have a personal website. I have one through artmajeur.com. I purchased a domain name that directs folks to my website.
What I like about my website is being able to create different "galleries" for the different types of subject matter I create.

I also have my artwork on Flickr. I recommend setting up a Flickr account, where one can also separate one's art into sets according to any criteria you desire.

I have a personal blog that I post to on an almost-daily basis, too.

The sales I have made via my website are mostly a result of my ebay presence and my ebay customers purchasing artwork from my website.
But, every sale of mine via my website is not because of my ebay and etsy presence. Etsy is another online venue for selling artwork.


You can also set up a Twitter account.

Well, I have given you much more info than you requested.


Good luck with your website!
Nina :)
Hey Nina,

thanks much, I do have a blogspot blog http://mattsrabbit.blogspot.com/ a twitter account @run_rabbit_run a flickr http://www.flickr.com/photos/mattsrabbit/ and my portfolio page hosted through godaddy. My fancy flash site is more headaches than it's worth and I believe I may look into a wordpress style site. Might be easier to maintain


thanks for the advice, I'll check out artmajeur.com as well!
You are very welcome.

Good luck to you!
:-)
Hi Matt,

I have recently become involved with a brand new web app that aims at simplifying flash template websites for artist portfolios: http://sharemyartwork.com/

I hope you find this helpful - let me know what you think about it.
Thanks!

I think you should be at the very least on Facebook. But that's seriously the very least...

These days a solid web presence is not only a good idea but almost a requirement. Like a said before a face/space page is a start but I think the most important thing you need is your own website and an email that is directly connected to that site. I personally find it to be a huge disconnect when I look at someones contact info and I see there website but a gmail account as their primary email.

Other great resources includes (some of them are obvious)
Personal Blog
flickr.com
twitter.com
behance.net
designrelated.com

As far as sales go... I find Ebay to be a little too broad of a website. Try using sites that focus on the arts like Brooklyn based supermarkethq.com or etsy.com. Supermarket is invite only, but it's easy enough to submit your work for approval and once your in, your in. Etsy is open to all.

... and of course get you work up on to this site...
I would also mention www.artistsspace.org. They've been around a long time for artists without representation in NYC. A lot of good work is there.
