“Quality goes to quality. Our global approach to upgrading Artspan will continue to attract the highest quality of both art producers and consumers.
Lambertville, NJ (PRWEB) November 10, 2010
Artspan (http://www.artspan.com) today announced the relaunch of its Internet offering designed to serve the professional artist and attract informed art lovers and buyers. The redesigned site includes a myriad of new features and a contemporary look that reflects the quality and relevance of Artspan member artists. Artspan has been the leading provider of premium individual artist, artisan and photographer websites since 1999, and will be making further announcements in the months ahead.
“In the social media age when sites have millions of members, artists need to focus on professional sites and communities that will enhance their careers, not bury them in a crowd,” said Eric Sparre, Founder & CEO of Artspan. “Our mission is to serve the few, not the many.”
The redesign has made the searches even more intuitive and easy-to-use for collectors, consultants and designers. This relaunch of the Artspan offering represents a major milestone for the company.
“Quality goes to quality,” added Sparre. “Our global approach to upgrading Artspan will continue to attract the highest quality of both art producers and consumers. In fact, anyone interested in the contemporary art scene.”
Founded in 1999 by painter and entrepreneur Eric Sparre, Artspan.com is a major contemporary art destination, featuring over 3,600 artist and artisan websites in many different categories, including painters, photographers, jewelers and sculptors. Artspan members include artists from around the country and the world. Artspan.com is consistently ranked in the top two results for the term ‘Contemporary Art’ by Google and Yahoo. Artspan member websites can be managed by anyone – no technical background needed - and have a variety of features, all at a very competitive price. These features include ecommerce features for each individual site, notably a prints-on-demand feature allowing buyers to size, mat and frame prints to suit – the completed package is then shipped to the buyer. The websites benefit from traffic resulting from visitor use of the artspan.com searches and directories, which supplements the traffic that goes directly to the individual websites (using the website domain names). Members can also access a wealth of marketing information and, in an age of limited or non-existent customer service, the Artspan Help Desk can be reached by phone or email.
