Selling art online for new artists

New artists can find it difficult to start selling their art for many reasons . There are 2 options which I would recommend for anyone trying to sell their art .

First of all artists should contact local and online galleries to showcase their work . Each gallery can offer something different so it is important to speak to a wide range of businesses.

Secondly, in the digital age every artist should have his or her own website . An online presence is vital in order to establish your name . A website gives an artist credibility and the ability to sell their own work without any commission. There are many different approaches to setting up an ecommerce site. Photogold set this site up in 1998 and we have been selling art online ever since . Our new project Photogold Ecommerce offers artists the option of having their own website with an integrated shopping cart . We can give advice on the best way of promoting your new website .
