We provide our members with the best platform possible to market their work. They, not a developer, quickly and easily design their sites to best present their work.
Lambertville, NJ (PRWEB) May 16, 2011
Artspan (http://www.artspan.com) today announced the launch of the next generation of artist websites. The new, templated websites give artists unmatched customization options for maximum control over the look of their websites and the way their artwork is presented. The site designs offer 14 fonts, 320 layout options and millions of color variations to choose from. In addition, the websites are easy to manage - the intuitive site tools feature a revolutionary preview window allowing artists to view changes as they are being made.
“Our goal was to develop the leading product in the space,” said Eric Sparre, Founder & CEO of Artspan. “We provide our members with the best platform possible to market their work. They, not a developer, quickly and easily design their sites to best present their work.”
Artspan sites possess ecommerce capabilities such as the prints-on-demand feature as well as blogs that are integrated into the sites among a myriad of other features. Artspan members also benefit from the dual nature of the Artspan offering which gives them their own individual web sites and domain names, and inclusion in Artspan’s main site, which directs a high volume of visitors to individual artists through its in-depth search functionality and directories.
“An elegant, full-featured and self manageable website is the single most important tool for today’s artists to showcase their work, connect with collectors and galleries and grow their careers,” says Sparre.
This announcement continues Artspan’s 2011 year of growth, which has seen a continuous flow of upgrades and new developments, cementing Artspan’s place as the leading provider of artist websites.
Founded in 1999 by painter and entrepreneur Eric Sparre, Artspan.com is a major contemporary art destination, featuring close to 4,000 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.
