Fine Art America is the world's most powerful sales and marketing tool for photographers and visual artists.
Simply open an account, upload your images, set your prices for all our available products, and you're instantly in business! FAA provides you with an e-commerce website, fulfills your orders for you, and sends you your profits each month.
A new website is being built to promote our group at http://www.QtheCollection.com. 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.
I would like to be involved with this.
I'm setting up a custom shopping cart now.
