Group Website

Posted by: Greg Norrell on 05/06/2013 - 10:33 PM

A new website is being built to promote our group at While this site will have a link to both the Group page and the group members list, the site will focus on a relatively small number of group participants.

Each participant will have a dedicated page with some bio info and a small set of sample images. The site is using a script which prevents viewers from right clicking on images, so they are safe from downloads.

Participants will need an established custom shopping cart. Eventually, I'd like to use the new iFrame shopping carts, but they currently don't allow use of discount codes, purchase of greeting cards, or selection of double mats for framed prints.

To setup a custom shopping cart, log into your FAA account (not the artistwebsite version) and click on 'Behind the Scenes'. Choose 'Premium Features' under the General tab, and from there you can build the cart using your own custom header and the color scheme you prefer.

A blog is also set up for the site, and participants will be encouraged to post occasional info regarding their activities. The blog can drive quite a bit of traffic to the site.

Sites generally receive little activity until they've been around awhile. If participants actively promote the site, posting on social media, linking to the site in forum signatures, etc., we can jump start the search engine climb.

We have room for a couple more spots if anyone thinks this might be something they are eager to embrace and promote.

Sounds interesting. I'd like to participate, but not sure how to join. I'm also a bit confused about the shopping cart - if I set one up, what do I do with it, and what happens next?

Thanks to everyone who has shown an interest in participating. I think we are approaching a full slate for awhile, but may consider another addition down the road.

Remember, the site links to this group on FAA so all the great contributors present here should receive some beneficial exposure. Thanks again.

- Greg
