Artists: Have you got your free copy of the Canadian Fine Art Market Report 2008?

This 34 page report covers the Who, What, Where, When and Why of visual fine art sales, mostly from Canadian buyers inputs, but with general applicability we believe to art markets everywhere.

The report investigates opinions and marketing demographics of the typical visitor likely to come to an art venue. We felt compelled to learn more about fine art clients because the answers for many important questions to help artists and art venues build solid business plans are not readily available.

The highlights on pages 3 to 5 cover most of the reports findings and marketing implications to help you sell more effectively. Click here to request your free copy by email, with our best wishes for your success.

You can save time while you keep in touch with your customers and your network.
MyArtClub.Com lets you collect your own email listings, which you can grow over time to a significant number of "fans". By carefully adding names to your list, every time you choose, you can send an email. This is an incredible way to keep in touch with your clientele.

Imagine sending a monthly email, inviting your network of contacts to visit your site and see your latest works. This is no extra cost. Once you are set up and familiar with the process, it takes only 15 to 30 minutes start to finish to add an artwork and notify all your fans. How much time or money would it take to call them all, or send them all a direct mail piece? This need not replace those efforts, but can make it easier to stay in more frequent contact. You never know when your email arrives if it just happens to be when a customer needs to find a special gift, or is redoing their room, or planned a trip to see an art show, or any number of possibilities.

Visitors can sign up from any of your pages to your email list. Then when you choose they can be notified by an email with a link back to your site. A link is embedded in the email template we create for your personal comments, available for you each time you add or reload an artwork to your site.

Updating content is important to keep visitors coming back, so you don’t want a site where it is an inconvenient or expensive hassle.

You’ll have lots of help.
We know how computers and the Internet can seem intimidating for some individuals. That is why we kept it simple: all artist information is put on the web simply by filling in forms.

MyArtClub.Com is designed to make every step as easy as possible. We provide assistance in many ways. There are FAQs (which are answers to Frequently Asked Questions), newsletters, and recorded presentations to show you how to build and to promote your art using the internet.

You may be surprised at how reasonable the cost is.
An artist’s site with up to 20 art works costs only $44.95 Canadian for a FULL YEAR of service and your OWN domain name (www.yourname.com). Compare this to sites charging much, much more.
If you wish you may expand your site in blocks of 10 more art works. The additional cost is only $14.95 again, for an entire year, for each set of 10 image spaces requested.
- You may pay by VISA, Amex or Mastercard credit card, money order, or by cheque.

Many often ask us, how can your prices be so low? Our answer is volume. Artists need a great service that is a reasonable cost, not a huge risky proposition. Our goal is to create great templates that many artists will use over and over, to promote their works. Artists help us build our volume by recommending us. To them we offer a great value, and to us, that makes this all worth while. Please read more in our testimonials section.

You can sign up from your members site and tell us the name you would like to have. We recommend you use a name that includes your artist name or group name, as often visitors will guess what your site name is.

The other way is if you already have a name, or have desire to register on your own. Our site has a one time administrative fee of $10 (ten) dollars for pointing your self arranged web address to your web pages.
Send an email to webmaster@MyArtClub.Com letting us know that you wish to point your web address to your web site and what your web address is.

How do I get my own web address?
To create your own web address, you must first go to a registrar of web addresses and find a web address that is not currently in use.

You must get your domain name from a domain name registrar.

You can search on a name and once you have found one that you like (and also one that is available - no easy feat!) you can register your name.

Fees range in price depending on how many years you register for and whether it is a .ca or .com name.

What kinds of art may be shown?
How do we define "art"?

Generally we mean "art" which could be found in a gallery or museum.

The site currently is focused on original paintings. No attempt is implied to exclude other forms such as original sculpture, carvings, etc.

MyArtClub.Com would like to hear from you if you want other forms of art to be integrated into this site. Click on the side bar words "Contact Us" to send us an email describing the kind of art you'd like to include.

Artists posting to their site assume full responsibility for their content pages to ensure all posted words or pictures meet are acceptable to the general public for display. All works are to represent originals created by the artist, and are to be free of copyright by others. All artists must adhere to the site terms and conditions they agree to when signing up.

What promotions benefit MyArtClub.Com members?
MyArtClub.Com members benefit from both site and each others promotions.
MyArtClub.Com works to bring in more members, creating more site visitors for all artists.
As artists and groups, promotion is mainly to the local regional buyer. Some out of town galleries would also be appropriate targets. Your buyers who are intrigued with the art shown on the internet, generally prefer, if possible, to view the art in person before committing to a purchase. Buyers that are easiest to target are those who are either close to the artist, or to the gallery where the artist is shown.

To reach this buyer, or gallery, the artist and art group needs the right promotional tools to succeed.
MyArtClub.Com has just the right tools. Your MyArtClub.Com web page provides world wide coverage to reach both local buyers and galleries everywhere.
MyArtClub.Com also assists artists and art groups with creating their own permission based marketing program. Major corporations consider permission based marketing as the latest and most sophisticated direct selling approach to connecting with any market.
Full details are available after sign up under the "Help(Kbase)" section.

MyArtClub.Com is not directly involved in any artworks sales, but does provide many tools to assist the artist to sell, should they so desire. For example, the artist can publish how to be contacted, on the Artist page, such as by email, or telephone.

The artist and the buyer are responsible for arranging all aspects related to selling and purchasing of the art.

Testimonials
"Having my site helps people know that I have been producing new work and am taking my art career seriously. Also anyone going to MyArtClub.Com may venture to find an artist they like and that’s always a good thing. Having a website has more to do with how you connect to people and who you connect to. I believe it’s good to let past customers or people interested in your art be remembered at different times of the year like Christmas, Summer, Spring Break and the like. There is something special about an artist’s connection with the people that admire their work. It’s more personal than providing a necessary piece of home improvement. After all much of the time people seem to connect to the artist as much as the artwork. I want to keep that connection going. I keep my site updated with new images perhaps once a month or so. I try to keep my emails short, polite and informative with a personal little update or hello. I don’t send more than one or two emails a month.

If I post a picture before a show, it can motivate some people to attend the show to see the "real life" version. This site is a great marketing tool. Robert Ascroft Artists find it easy to create their own site. Having access to a web site that is attractive, template driven for easy set-up and revision, and very reasonably priced is a big plus for me. The site support is very good. The questions I had were answered within the day. Site was very easy to set up. The maintenance is also quite simple and straightforward.

"Thank you" seems rather shallow to express how grateful and pleased I am not only to be part of My Art Club .Com but with myself. MyArtClub.Com is to be commended for its quality presence, technological expertise and sensitivity to those who would otherwise have no clue as to how to go about putting things together. Once you both got my wheels on the right track I quite enjoyed the process. For me and my rather old Windows 98, I felt rather smug about the results at 77 years young. The "poppies" are making a strong statement as noted this morning in "Fan" mail. I’ve sent out an emailing, some of which can be called mutual admiration society; so you may encounter other artists who wish to "shake hands across the rockies." Gratefully yours
