We are very happy to report that the APM Showcase has been very successful! It has only been about a week since our artist marketplace was officially released to the internet public and the member count is already at 41!
Many of Artpromotivate’s closest friends and supporters have joined and setup their own personal storefronts.
Consequently, we already have two promotions for Artpromotivate Showcase members – advertising in a rotting banner in the sidebar of this site and being featured here in a special spotlight.
To signup for our Showcase, visit this page. Click the Sell with Us link at the top and fill out the short application. We will replay to your request within 24 hours.
Please refer to our previous posts about our marketplace before moving on:
Promoting your Art with Artpromotivate Showcase
- Rotating Banner Advertisement
If you would like your art featured for free in the Artpromotivate Showcase section, located in the sidebar of this website, please submit the following:
The name of the artwork
The category of your item
The URL where your image is located in the APM Showcase
Send all of this to artpromotivate @ gmail dot com
The image will be included in a rotating banner script so that your artwork will display at random. Ideally, we would like to create separate headings for varying items, but that will depend on the submissions we receive. This site already includes a section for Fine Art in the sidebar. Other items such as handmade, jewellery, etc. will be included in a separate banner rotation script below the Fine Arts category. This will help to promote yourself as an artist or artisan, and hopefully assist you in getting art sales.
- Special Showcase Spotlights
Featuring your art and your APM Showcase storefront in a special spotlight at Artpromotivate.
If you have already been spotlighted at Artpromotivate, you can be featured here once again!!
If you have been reading the artist spotlights here, you will know how these will be structured. Many of the artists in the spotlights report receiving many website visitors and Facebook followers after their interview articles have been published. Along with your interview, we will include several items from your APM Showcase store.
Here are the questions for you to answer:
★ What is your name?
★ Please introduce yourself.
★ Please explain what your art is about.
★ Who or what inspires you the most?
★ How are you promoting your products at our marketplace?
★ What do you like about Artpromotivate and APM Showcase?
★ Do you have any recommendations on what you would like to see at Artpromotivate Showcase?
You are also welcome to include anything you think is relevant for this special spotlight.
Please send your answers to these questions to artpromotivate @ gmaail dot com
We are open to suggestions on additional ways to promote the artists at Artpromotivate. If you have any ideas to share, please leave a comment below, or email us.
