ArtandOnly A New Online Platform for Art Collectors

ArtAndOnly_Homepage_Platform_for_Collectors

Julie Engelmann of ArtandOnly, a Swiss based art collector platform, e-mailed to let us know that since their launch a few weeks ago, they are rapidly attracting collectors from all over the world who have been looking for a new platform that is on the cutting edge of today’s global art market. ArtandOnly has quickly become the première destination for both art lovers and collectors.

I asked Julie how artists are selected for the ArtandOnly site. According to Julie, the ArtandOnly curatorial team evaluates each emerging artist’s background and education, and looks into prior exhibitions and “who and how the artist has been represented so far. Of course the most important part is the work.” Julie said that their team of curators team has a certain vision and will decide about the overall impression of the work– if it is aligning with that vision.

ArtandOnly Founder Frédéric de Senarclens

ArtandOnly Founder Frédéric de Senarclens

Frédéric de Senarclens launched his new venture ArtAndOnly after seven years in Asia running one of the most successful galleries in Singapore.  Now he has taken his passion, expertise and extensive personal relationships with artists, collectors, dealers and gallerists and expanded into the global online market by developing a new and innovative online art marketplace. ArtAndOnly is a powerful and integrated sales platform that connects collectors and artists to a network of  professionals specializing in contemporary art across many disciplines.

“Once you look at the current marketplace you begin to see the limitations of a physical gallery space. By dematerializing the old brick-and-mortar model, we are able to give collectors a unique opportunity to access the global market directly” de Senarclens said.

ArtAndOnly’s timing couldn’t be more perfect. Artists have also been searching for new ways to access the market, establish direct relationships, and gain greater reach and exposure. This platform provides those connections and exclusive consignments when the other players do not.

Frédéric de Senarclens has set himself apart in another way– “We think buying and selling art online should be a full-service experience. We look forward to being a trusted partner through the entire process, with advice and a personal touch every step of the way” de Senarclens said.

Growth-Hacking Artists Is What We Do!

bloggrowthhackingplant

According to Wikipedia, growth hacking is a marketing technique… which uses creativity, analytical thinking, and social metrics to sell products and gain exposure.  Growth hacking can be seen as part of the online marketing ecosystem. Many growth hackers are simply good at using techniques such as search engine optimization, website analytics and content marketing which are already mainstream. Growth hackers focus on low-cost and innovative alternatives to traditional marketing– utilizing social media and viral marketing instead of buying advertising for radio, newspaper, and television. Growth hacking is particularly important for startup businesses as it allows for a “lean” launch that focuses on growth first, budgets second. Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Dropbox are all companies that use growth hacking techniques.

To quote Aaron Ginn, from his article Defining A Growth Hacker: Debunking The 6 Most Common Myths About Growth Hacking, “The magic of a growth hacker is not a mysterious power but rather a mindset that focuses on what most startups deprioritize: distribution. …, growth features tend to be forgotten and under-optimized until it matters most. Dave McClure, founder of 500 startups, said that most startup founders focus heavily on product but most of a startup’s risk lies in distribution.”

When these same issues are applied to any emerging fine artist’s business, the artist is typically focused on creating product–that is producing art works– to the neglect of distribution–that is making submissions.  When discussing an artist’s business concerns, rather than use the term distribution we refer to *submissions* made to *get the  work out there* and into gallery exhibitions, art publications, and online galleries to make sales and gain visibility. Artist submissions are presentations to art professionals in positions to do much for an artist’s career– be they gallerists, art dealers, art collectors, art consultants, fine arts publishers, arts magazine editors, art licensing agents or other arts professionals.

What many artists typically do, is focus on creating new work and only when their studio is filled do they begin to think that they might need some help getting the work out there and about gaining exposure. Gaining exposure, getting shows, and making sales begins with making submissions. For any artist, a great way to gain exposure is in a feature article written and published and shared widely on social media to increase visibility. The process of getting an article featuring an artist’s work begins with research into publications and then making submissions–all time-consuming tasks. The process of getting gallery representation also begins with research.

When any artist begins to understand all the things they need to spend time doing researching their market, they typically begin to feel overwhelmed. Where to begin? How do to find the time? They really don’t want to shift focus away from the studio to begin marketing and promoting. It’s a long hard growth process to discover how best to market and promote oneself. That kind of understanding doesn’t happen overnight! Even with the ease of social media there is much to learn and it takes years to understand how best to use all the tools that are available.

That’s where we come in! Artist Marketing Resources is in our 6th year of helping artists at all levels of the growth process. Yes, we really are growth hacking artists every day!

If you are an artist interested in finding opportunities, then follow and read our blog posts.

If you are an artist who would like your work featured, support us and we will do the same with perks–find the details here.

If you are an artist who wants to take more of a DIY approach to submitting your work, then we offer ten important tools and time savers  here.

Flootie.com: Where Marketing Art Is an Art

By Dean Cameron

Artists don’t have to starve. Galleries can thrive. Art collectors can make money, not lose it. And Flootie.com is here to make it happen.

With far fewer galleries than artists in the world – and most of those in metropolitan areas – placing those finished masterpieces before the public eye can take as much effort as creating them. That’s why more artists, galleries, and collectors, are showing and selling art online– and Flootie.com leads the way.

On the cutting edge of the digital art revolution, Flootie.com uses innovative technology and inspired ideas to bring art to a growing online population of art lovers and buyers. We don’t sell art; we simply give artists, galleries, and art collectors the tools to do so. More than 11,000 page views in the last month alone says we’re doing it right.

At Flootie, we embrace the traditional artist-gallery-collector relationship that has worked well for so many years. At the same time, we reject the notion that online sales necessarily undercut gallery sales. Artists don’t have to bite the hands that feed them in order to succeed.

Artists, galleries, and art collectors need each other; each is as essential as the three legs of a stool. Flootie.com brings them together on one site, allowing visitors to browse by artist, gallery, or private collector. What’s more, when a subscriber clicks the “fan” button on an artist’s profile, we’ll notify her via email every time new works by her favorite artists appear on the site, no matter whether the artist, a gallery, or a private collector uploads them.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Finding new fans has never been easier, thanks to Flootie’s “concentric marketing” system. Like ripples in a pool, our social media network triggers thousands of shares every time we post, starting with our 10,000-plus contacts comprising arts professionals and enthusiasts. Instead of “fishing with a blindfold,” hoping someone with an interest will take our bait, we target potential buyers in an on-purpose marketing system.

Does it work? Our expanding database and ever-increasing number of visitors tells us that it does. We hear success stories all the time, too, such as the artist who had never even shown her paintings but now, two weeks after joining the Flootie.com artists’ community, she’s getting fans and emails from viewers praising her work. She’s well on her way to her first sale.

blogFlootieRose

We love success stories almost as much as we love art. We’ll go the extra mile every time to help artists succeed, even offering support on the phone day and night. And we’ve got a lot of new features up our sleeve: a screensaver tool allowing fans to download and keep online photos of artworks; an art events calendar, searchable by city; an art marketing blog featuring guest posts by artist members, and more – all for $14.95 a month.

We keep our price low because we know the “starving artist” syndrome is no myth — not for now, anyway. Flootie.com aims to change that by helping artists to help themselves. We’re giving artists the tools they need to succeed, now and in the future. Why not join us today?

ArtFinder Alerts Art Buyers of New Available Artist Works

ArtFinder is a marketplace for people to discover and buy affordable original art online from a wide range of international artists and galleries. ArtFinder is a top curated online art gallery.

Some artists we know who recently opened up shop on ArtFinder– Gabriella Cleuren    Agent X   Leon Sarantos   Sharon Sieben   Marie Kazalia

ArtFinder has many advanced settings for tracking sales and shipments of your art, as well as for interacting with other ArtFinder artists and site Users. As an ArtFinder artist, I receive email alerts when a User (aka potential buyer) follows me or favorites one of my artworks. I can then follow the User back and  review the User’s profile to see all the artists the User has followed. With this new understanding of the User’s tastes, I may add images of my other available artworks to meet the User’s interests. ArtFinder sends the Users following me a newsletter containing images of my newly uploaded available work.

A recent ArtFinder newsletter (excerpted below) alerted me to new artworks available from artist Gabriella Cleuren–with cropped thumbnail images that enticed me to visit her portfolio on ArtFinder for full views of each work.
