Artists, do you want feedback from your website visitors but are unsure how to create interactions? Do you wonder how visitors to your website feel about your site design, or the over-all look of your site and ease of navigation?
If you are trying to come up with new ways to interact with your website visitors and gain feedback from them you might try your own version of a survey and giveaway (like in the example below). You could create a survey and send it to your mailing list or site subscribers, or post it to your blog. Perhaps you could ask for survey feedback and give one lucky winner an art print. I know these things may seem trite or corny, but everyone loves a giveaway! Giveaways generate excitement and interactions.
A few months ago, I received sample art canvases from a manufacturer to review on my blog. I liked the quality and price of the canvases so I asked the manufacturer to do a giveaway on my blog. Yes, one of our blog readers, in our very own Artist Marketing Resources blog giveaway, received a free canvas shipped to them at no cost by the manufacturer. Our blog post and giveaway offer created enough of a buzz that the manufacturer was pleased and offered to do another giveaway with us in the future.
You could also set up a giveaway with an art supplier or manufacturer in exchange for a similar small promotional campaign.
As a giveaway, you can do this one-on-one. Contact an individual at an art and design company and offer placement of their logo on your site (for a set amount of time) in exchange for a review of your site and their professional feedback for improving your site design and navigation. These sorts of exchanges are commonly done.
You can also offer logo placement on your site or blog to art suppliers or manufacturers in exchange for artist materials.
I received this survey recently, with a giveaway offer:
Artspecifier and Photospecifier needs your help.
Please take a few minutes and complete the attached evaluation/survey.
By so doing you will be assisting us in serving you better.
When you submit your completed evaluation, you will be entered into a lottery to win a lovely dinner for two in the city you live in! It is that simple.
We thank you for your valuable contribution and for being an integral part of creating vibrant, creative communities.

In my Artist Marketing Resources LinkedIn group there is an ongoing fan page link exchange. Each artist will *like* all the fan pages on the list and post their own Facebook fan page link for others on the list to go to and *like.*
Always (I noted), artists post long fan page links containing number strings. Links similar to my full fan page link for my Transmedia Artist Amazon Pro Store–
Yet, in just one simple step I changed my long link (above) to this vanity link:
The shorter link has a cleaner look. Since most fan pages are business pages, a clean vanity link will give a better impression (than a long link containing meaningless number strings).
After seeing my link transformed from this–
to this– facebook.com/TransArtStore
you will want your own vanity URL for your Facebook fan page.
It’s easy to make the change.
Get your vanity URL at: http://www.facebook.com/username.
Yesterday, I began setting up a Google AdWords ad campaign for my Amazon store, with ads for each art work listed. I used a $100.00 gift card to start.
When I entered the Gift Card code I received a balance $105.00 to use for my pay-per-click ads.
Google sent the gift card to me after I completed a video course in how to use AdWords to create pay-per-click ads. Complete the course and Google will send a $100. gift card to you a couple of weeks later.
To go to the Google video course, click the hyperlinked green work *ENGAGE* in my article first published by Technorati news.
In John R. Math’s article, 10 Ways an Artist Can Develop Their Brand:
” Online press releases offer an artist a way in which they can promote their events, openings and other promotions. Most press release websites include links back to the artist’s website, along with a biography section. They also offer guides on how to write and form a press release. Search engines pick up these press releases very quickly and they become a major source of the artist’s brand. www.prlog.org www.pressreleasepoint.com www.dbusinessnews.com ”
Read the entire article on the Art Marketing Strategies site:
The Press Release sites will give you an idea of what information to include in your art event news. I’d like to start posting exhibit and other news
for all artist subscribers of this blog, on an ongoing basis. Submit exhibition and art project news to me via email: Marie Kazalia: firstname.lastname@example.org
I will post your news here on this blog. Now until October 4th I ask everyone who sends a press release to support my Kickstarter project by backing it with $1. or more
