You may have wondered what’s all about TravelArtPix and WHY you should participate in this website/blog…
Well, here is a quick list of benefits:
1. Worldwide Exposure
The MAIN BENEFIT comes from something that many members of FAA groups don’t realize: The discussions in the FAA groups are set-up to be ignored by Search Engines – therefore the posts are practically invisible to the world.
* For example, if you search on Google for “Pictures of USA” (this page/discussion in our group: https://fineartamerica.com/groups/1-travel-art.html?showmessage=true&messageid=4045955 – you will NEVER find it – It simply doesn’t exist on the web.
When I realized this I just stopped wasting my time and participating in group’s discussions. I’m just submitting the images to the main galleries.
2. The Power of Blogging
It is true that a picture is worth one thousand words…, but without words that picture, no matter how good it is, will be less likely to be found and sell…
Throughout the history sales have always been driven by words – people like to hear words and related stories, and when it comes to art, talking with the potential buyers is the way to go… Descriptions are good, but stories about our personal approach, motivation and vision are unique and can build a powerful relationship between us and the audience.
** You can also have your own blog at wp.com but it’s way too expensive to buy, especially considering that we have a lot of images to upload and they give very little space, unless you go with the most expensive package.
(I suggest however that you go and register with a free account).
3. Other marketing tools
a. From this blog we can also link to the Social Media of our choice
b. We will expose our artwork by artist, media and categories and we’ll learn from each other
c. We’ll participate in challenges that will bring traffic, etc.
