I find it easier to promote MyArtClub.Com as it is a site of many artists and I mention that often. I may say something like: "You know there are a number of wonderful artist on the site my work is on that you may enjoy". I expect not everyone will like what I do so I invite them to view others work. And I truly do like the work and calibre of artists that I "share the site with" so Iím happy to promote it.
Much of my time creating inspires me to want to share my work with others and thus gets me to the computer to upload images and post updates. I have a digital camera so when I finish a painting it gets a little showing right away as I put it on the web. I like that initial landmark of getting my painting on the web. And itís important to pat yourself on the back once in awhile!
An Internet gallery is the main benefit of having my site. I believe it adds a certain degree of professionalism and enables some feedback. I have not had a huge amount of sales from the actual site by email but I must say it helps people make decisions on their art purchases; whether they are mine or not.
"If you believe in yourself then so will others" - thatís the motto I go by. It helps with sales too."
