Hello World

Posted by: Aj F on 05/11/2013 - 8:36 AM

Hello everybody! I'm new here and not sure how to use this site very well. So, I'm just running through the features.. I'm curious, is there any extra exposure to the premium membership? Also would just like to mention that, this is a great site.. I'm thoroughly impressed

Welcome aboard, AJ! The premium membership does give you some awesome promotional tools to work with, along with your own artist website where potential customers won't be distracted by other artists work. The ability to offer more than 25 images for sale with the premium membership also increases your earning potential.

It's well worth the price. Especially if you have more than 25 images to offer.

Hello All- I am new to this site as well. I too am curious if the Premium Membership generates more exposure.

Welcome to FAA, Lucy!

The fact of the matter is premium membership or not, it's you the artist that generate your own exposure. You have to constantly produce new work, and market yourself tirelessly both online and in the brick and mortar world.

you can sell more than 25 things, and you get your own private space and you can sell on amazon. there are a few other perks, but you still have to advertise yourself.

First let me address premium membership and exposure.

As said above, the site won't market you so that is up to the artist. What the premium membership does is allow you more than 25 images for sale. I have almost 1600 myself and the ability to cover a wide variety of subjects and places in and of itself does increase exposure. Secondly, the premium membership allows your work to be seen on Amazon. Then there is the sales widget you can place on your website and of course the artist website that is included so when you do market yourself you send them to YOUR site and not somewhere they can wander off and see all the other beautiful work on here.

Beyond that, here are some helpful links.

As an artist, half of the work is marketing yourself.

Here are some good links to discussions in our forum and elsewhere about marketing your work
