A majority of industries have shifted online, the major jump towards success is seen in the art industry. Coming from the expert’s mouth- there is some advice that one must follow while putting paintings for sale on various art gallery website. While marketing and selling the artwork is a work of enormous time and effort, more than half of your day goes into marketing.

The best part is that the longer you do it, the more followers and fans you will attract. It's a time commitment, but it pays off in the long run. You'll spend hours at the computer, publishing (and sometimes questioning whether it's worth it), but you'll gain a following. Some of it is casual, while others are loyal and dedicated. It's important to note that following an artist's work and career for months, if not years, might lead to a collector buying your work.

1 To 10 - Tips To Put Paintings For Sale

1. Be optimistic about your narrative. 

Nothing is more successful than success. There's plenty of gloomy news out there, and your art is (hopefully) a welcome diversion from it all. As a result, it's critical to acknowledge and appreciate all of your accomplishments, no matter how minor; every sale, show, or work-in-progress is a reason to rejoice. Never claim that you aren't selling or that you despise web galleries. Instead, discuss your most recent project.

2. Be Creative to form your own website 

There is a variety of hosting services to choose from. Some, such as web, fiasco, and amateur, specialize in hosting artists. All of them will demand an annual fee. You must ensure that your website supports eCommerce. That is, it serves not just as a gallery but also as a shop where collectors can purchase artwork.

3. Begin Blogging 

Writing a blog is a terrific method to communicate your story. I use WordPress, although there are other blogging platforms such as Blogger, and many websites provide a blog page. Your blogs don't have to be wonderful long dissertations; what matters is that your blog is regularly. Some bloggers post once a day, while others only post once a week. Don't be a sporadic blogger. Nothing irritates me more than a blogger who only posts three times a year. If you are inconsistent, you will lose followers. Maintain your concentration. Write about your art, inspiration, or art in general on your blog. Unless it's relevant to art and what ins, don't blog about the news, your family, what you had for tea, or the current styles.


4. Make Your Presence on Social Media 

There are numerous sources for social media, including Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Tumblr, and Youtube. You don't have to do them all (I dropped Tumblr because it was too much), but whichever platform you choose to be on, make sure you do it properly. To be honest, no one platform is particularly superior to the others when it comes to advertising your work; they will all help in some way. Don't post twenty times a day; it will appear like you are spamming your followers, and they will unfollow you. It's enough to tweet once or twice a day, maybe three times on Twitter. 


The most important thing to keep in mind is that the name ‘Social Media’ is used for a reason. It is a medium that helps you to become sociable. It's polite to respond to someone who comments on your post with a "like" and a "thank you." You must show your support for other social media users by following other artists, photographers, and supporters who enjoy, comment on, and share your postings. We all require motivation. It's critical to support others. In the online realm, I've made a lot of nice pals. Again. Try not to combine business and personal material on your Art pages/sites — create a separate one for your family matters and keep to art-related topics on your Art accounts, just like you wouldn't mix business and personal items on your blog.


5. Join Pinterest and Share Your Ideas

Pinterest isn't only for recipes anymore! It boasts 250 million monthly users, with 25 million in the United States, and about 80% of them are female. It's a search engine, not a social media site. It's certainly worth it to join to get your work noticed and build a following. It's also a fantastic resource for learning about art marketing. Pins on Pinterest have taught me a lot about blogging, pinning, marketing, and websites.


6. Make Your Website Appealing 

Make it appealing. Canva – can be used to make professional-looking blog covers, Pinterest graphics, and other graphics. It's something I use all the time. There's also Pablo to consider.


7. Make Your Way With SEO’s

Search engine optimization — Use keywords in your posts so that Google and Safari can find you. With SEO keywords that assist connect searchers to your site, a website that is well optimized for search engines "speaks the same language" as its potential visitor base. This is a broad topic for me, however, there are Pinterest pins and other websites that can assist you to enhance your SEO. Make sure you fill in all of the fields when you upload your photos to your website.


8. MAke Use Of Podcasts

You can also make sure to listen to podcasts for A-class marketing tips. Look in for various keywords such as Art Marketing and podcasts for Artists. 


9. Take Motivation from other Platforms 

Finally, there are a plethora of online galleries to choose from. A long list of online galleries can be found here. It's a perplexing decision. Some are more effective than others. There are large ones, such as Saatchi online, where it is tough to be seen, and smaller ones, such as Rise Art, that have a lesser advertising budget. Singulart is a relatively new site situated in Paris that is rapidly growing. Others, such as Artfinder and Artgallery, charge a fee to be listed. Having a presence on multiple sites makes sense. 



Make sure that you don’t end up putting all your energies into that one single website or social media channel. As foolish as it sounds, it is just like you are building a house for yourself o someone’s land. While the algorithms, pricing policies, curators, legal policies, ethical policies, and all change in a blink of an eye. 


Wrap up:

It's always a good idea to be active on multiple platforms and sites and to urge your followers to do the same. You can accomplish it in a variety of ways, such as by including links to your social media sites in your email signature.
