Art buyers want to find you – but your website isn’t helping very much!
If you’re like most artists with a website, you started out with a dream that collectors would actually find you through search engines. But the reality for most artists is:
Your website floats alone in cyberspace with almost no visitors.
Artist websites are great showcases and there are many strategies you can use to share your work with potential buyers – such as mailouts to galleries, email, personal networking, and social networking. All are very worthwhile, must be a part of your marketing plan, and require a big commitment of consistent effort.
But search engine traffic – the holy grail of online marketing that most of us dreamed of – eludes us still. Why is that when according to Qi Lu, President of Microsoft’s Online Services Division:
Search (engines) determine where users go online and search advertising is the most powerful economic force on the internet.
Are artists so radically different from other businesses that the most powerful economic force on the internet won’t work for them in some beneficial way?
We say no! While it’s true that search engines by themselves will not make your art career, they certainly can and should play a role in connecting you with some of the people who could help you make your career happen – people you could build relationships with and sell your art to.
