Getting your Art Noticed

Art by Delilah

Many artists are under the false assumption that simply by putting their art online that people will see it. 

Nothing could be further from the truth. You have to let people know about it.

You can’t just place your images on the web and hope that people will find your work. If you are serious about selling your work online then you have to put some more work into it. 

Most people don't wander past the first 10 or so search results. The art of breaking into those rarefied ranks is called search engine optimization, or SEO. If this term is new to you, get familiar with it--quick. (For a primer, start here.)

There are lots of things you can do to help people find your wonderful artwork on line and maybe make a few sales and some really good friends while your at it. Most of them are really easy to do and it only takes an extra few clicks when you r put your work on line.

Tomorrow I am going to give you a few tips on just how to do that.
