Use Applewatch Mockup Templates to Show Your Art Products

There are many mockup products, aka scene generators, that artists may find useful–such as poster mockups, greeting card mockups, product mockups for showing your art on various products and on a variety of items. Mockups may be used in presentations, on your website, and in your marketing and promotions. I’m learning more about what mockups are readily available. As I find useful mockup, I will be reviewing and sharing  them in future articles.

Today, I’m sharing Get Scenery because the site is super easy to use. Get Scenery mockups allow you to test-out your images before purchasing. With their free watermarked mockups, like I’m using here, I am able to demonstrate how artists can easily read my ebook on the go.

So I’m able work on and try out a variety promotional plans and ideas before deciding on which mockups to actually purchase. Purchased versions do not have watermarks.

To try out the watermarked mockups, go to the Get Scenery site, download the mockups and then with one click you add your own photo to try in each–as I have here. Trying these have given me new ideas and a better understanding of how I might use these mockups in my product promotions.

 Get Scenery mockups have all the latest devices, such as the new Apple Watch, for you to use in your marketing.

For instance, if you have a catalog or portfolio of your fine art photography prints or a series of fine art prints that you’d like Art Consultants and Interior Designers to know about. You could use a mockup of an iPad or iPhone on your website to quickly show how easy it is for an Art Consultant or Interior Designer to view your prints while they are on-sight in the space where the prints will hang.

Two 30 Second Videos: Where Artists Meet Art Buyers and Art Lovers

Dear Artist,

Let me share with you two videos, each 30 seconds in length, that introduce Artworld and the community it represents. If, having seen the videos, you wish to support Artworld, then please share them with your fellow artists, especially those not yet taking part. Artworld is an excellent idea, strongly supportive of artists and the arts. It needs, and I believe it deserves, your support!

Here are the videos: one for art lovers and buyers, and the other for artists taking part. Artworld charges neither fees nor commissions. It presents your work beautifully. Not only that, and it connects you directly with buyers in your neighbourhood or “armchair travellers” a continent away. Why not take a moment and see for yourself? I’m certain you’ll be interested! And should you wish to take part, check out the Step by Step Guide. It’s your art at their fingertips. And just one tap!

Yours Sincerely,

Keith McFarlane

P.S. Artists don’t need an iPhone or iPad to take part. Upload your work from any browser, on a PC, Linux or Mac. For details of registration and how to upload your portfolio refer to the Step by Step Guide. Artworld also has a Facebook Page dedicated to the work of participating artists, and many of our artists are exceptional, established and emerging artists of international rank.

GreenBox Art + Culture + More Art Licensing Opportunities

WordPress alerted me to a spike in visitors to my blog to read my recent blog post article on winning a competition that put 4 of my designs on iPhone cases, and how artists can submit their own art.

Today I am also sharing another of my art licensing contracts that I have with —

blogGreenboxlogo

Six of my paintings are now available as Giclee on canvas prints on the Greenbox Art + Culture site–click here to see them.

The site is one of a group of art print companies that include Oopsy Daisy (for children), Wheatpaste Art Collective and Greenbox Art + Culture.

Are you on the ArtStack?

blogArtStack

ArtStack is the social media platform for art, where everyone can share and engage with art they love. ArtStack makes it easy to share art you make and remember art you love. Artists, curators and gallerists use it to reach new audiences, keep fans engaged, and discover new works through their friends and the people they follow.

The community includes some of today’s most interesting artists, curators, collectors, journalists and art enthusiasts globally – it’s still in invitation-beta, but you can sign up by clicking here: http://theartstack.com/users/signup/mariekazalia

Adding your work on ArtStack and sharing art you love on your ArtStack profile means that people can easily find your work through their friends and other people who like your work – rather than having to search for your website, which often means that people already need to know your work.

ArtStack enables anyone to engage with the world’s most exciting art and discover work by leading emerging and established artists and works. The site applies the concept of social following to art, so all the works by an artist are all on a single page, you see when a new work by an artist you like is added, and your audience can promote your work to their friends and followers. It simple to make your own online collections and see your work alongside that of artists you admire – and you can also use it to gauge how your works resonate with your audience.

Using ArtStack is simple: people browse and add images to their ‘Stack’ of art to create their own personal art profile; you can follow anyone on the platform to see the art they like and discover new works. To get the most out of the site, add your own works and also stack art by artists you like. Invite friends (they’ll follow you when they sign up) and ask them to stack your works, so that their friends will see your work. Like any social media, space out your activity, so add a few artworks or stack regularly every few days to be present.

You can sign up on the website here: http://theartstack.com/users/signup/mariekazalia

There are also free iPhone and Android apps – you can download them and start stacking directly!

Get Online Shopping Discount Codes For Art Supplies + Free Shipping at Coupon Chief

Screen Shot 2013-03-12 at 7.44.19 AM

Recently, in an online discussion, a group of artists talked about the importance of getting as many things as possible delivered to their studio doors– from food to art supplies–so they can spend their days at work on their art and waste very little time running errands. It is possible to get just about everything you need delivered, but then concern shifts to all those shipping fees you’re paying. If you want free shipping, then next time you are about to place an online order, stop, and before you click that final *buy button* take a minute to search the Coupon Chief site for coupon codes that you can immediately use to get free shipping and discounts.

Coupon Chief asked me to review their site and I am so glad to discover that they currently have discount coupon codes for buying just about anything online–clothing, pet items, stationery, beauty supplies, and yes, art supplies!

Use Coupon Chief coupon codes to get Free shipping for your Jerry’s ARTARAMA orders, Blick, MisterArt, Flax, Greatart UK, Ink Supply, Utrecht and others.  I easily found coupon codes for 15% off, 20% off, and 25% off an entire store order at Jerry’s ARTARAMA, plus coupon codes to get a free Facebook T-shirt with purchase, a free tube of white paint with purchase, and a free brush-washer, (and who doesn’t  like those free items?).

Coupon Chief has several current coupon codes for Utrecht, to get free shipping on orders over $25 dollars, to save 15% on orders over $75 dollars, to save 40% on any 1 item, to get 20% off plus free shipping on your $75 order, to get 40% off one item + free shipping, and  15% off + free shipping on $100 or more, and new coupons codes to get $30 off on orders of $100 or more.

How would you like to save 20% on CafePress orders? Or get 40% off ebooks? Those were the top two coupons when I visited the Coupon Chief website yesterday.

I also found 14 printable coupons for Staples for substantial savings on ink pens, paper, paper shredders, Flash Drives, Laser Jet printers and a coupon code for free shipping for any online purchase. While reviewing the Staples coupons, related coupons appeared in the sidebar, including 31 printable coupons for Office Depot, and 16 Coupons for Office Max and coupons for Viking-direct UK.

The site currently has discounts for stores such as Walgreens, Macy’s, Overstock.com, Urban Outfitters, Home Shopping Network, and sites such as Emeals.com and 48HourPrint.com.  I reviewed the alphabetized list of stores on the Coupon Chief site and discovered the Army Navy Shop . Using a Coupon Chief coupon code I  placed an order for %15 off with free shipping for some new vintage paratrooper pants I use as art studio work clothes.

In that Coupon Chief store list I also noticed the Apple iTunes Store and the Apple Store had some incredibly low prices on iPads and iPhones. And that list of stores is a great resource for researching new sites you may not discover otherwise.

How Artists Make Sales of Their Art Using Auction Apps on Their Blogs, iPhone

In Germany, artist Wolf-Gunter Voight holds a twice weekly auction of his Pad Paintings. In each auction he makes one of his iPad paintings available for easy purchase via a Fine Art Auction App on his Blogspot blog. In the screenshot above you will notice that the information and instructions are in both German and English.

Auction apps is a big topic and I am just beginning to explore the many options out there which will take some time. Live Auctioneers offers a iPhone auction app for selling art, antiques and collectables. Get an account free.

Caspio has an online auction and Facebook integration. They offer a two-week free trial. Read this successful case study.

F*R*E*E* Mobile App of Your Artist Website In Minutes!

Apple iPhone 3GS, Motorola Milestone and LG GW60

Just a few years ago, getting an app made featuring your artwork for viewing on iPhone was a major project and expense. You had to hire an expert with the right software and pay them  thousands of dollars. According to experts, iPhone users shop on their phones, but also, perhaps surprisingly, they read books on their iPhones. So there are more sales of ebooks to iPhone users than to Kindle Amazon users. Visibility on the economically upper-levels of iPhone owners and users pays, but at that time may not have been worth the investment for many artists

Even very recently, I noticed a company promoting on Facebook–they create an app of your artist website for iPhone and Smartphone for just under $800.USD. While that price offer is better than the thousands it used to cost for such an app, I have even better news. Now you can get an app featuring your artwork free, at Conduit Mobile  http://mobilecp.conduit.com

You can create a mobile-friendly version of your website in minutes.

It’s true!  I tried it.  I entered my URL and the rest was completely automated. About two minutes later my app was ready.

Conduit Mobile also helps you promote your app and site to get more mobile users with their set of promotional tools and tips.

So you may have to invest some time into learning how best to promote you new app.

Artist Tip: How To Create Google+ Albums of Your Art Images

Nothingness (Peaches), oil on canvas panel, 12 x 12 inches, Lena Levin, 2012

When art is over, oil on canvas, 24 x 30 inches, Lena Levin, 2012

Lena Levin shares instructions on how to create photo albums of your art on Google + :

If you add photos not from the main Google+ page, but from the “Photos” tab, you can do either of two things:

1. Add one or several photos from your computer and create a new album out of them; after you have done that, Google+ automatically offers you to share (at which point you can add some text to make a post to accompany the photos). If there are three photos or less, the post will include a “panel” with all of them; if there are more, it will show a panel with the first three.

2. Essentially the same thing happens if you add your photos to one of your already existing albums: Google+ offers you to share, and, by default, it will include in the post only newly added photos: if there are three or less, they will be all visible together, in a panel.

The latter option works better if you have “thematic” albums — in this way, if someone clicks on a photo to view a larger version, they might also browse the whole album (note: if you click “Photos” from my profile, you will see that I have lots of such albums). It works as a “gentle nudge” to the followers to browse more of your work. 🙂 Quite often, this really happens — I see that someone goes through the older images and adds “+1″s or comments.

And it also offers those willing to share your work to their followers an option to share a whole album, rather than a single post or a single image.

I cannot give you links, because I am figuring this all myself, more or less (especially because they rather frequently change how it all works… :).
