4 Steps to Selling Your Photos on Fine Art America
Fine Art America is a website that allows photographers to upload their images for sale
on the site. It has many advantages over other sites, including a large audience, easy
navigation, and a simple interface.
Set up your account.
To set up your account, go to www.fineartamerica.com/signup. You'll need to enter your
email address, choose a username, and select a password. Then click "Create Account."
Create a portfolio page.
Once you've signed up, you'll see a link at the top right corner of the screen called
"Portfolio" (see image below). Click on that link to open your portfolio page. This will
show you all of the photos you've uploaded to Fine Art America.
Now that you've got your portfolio set up, it's time to start selling. To do so, click on the
"Sell" tab located at the top of the page. You'll then be able to choose between three
different options: Prints, Framed Prints, and Greeting Cards.
Promote your work.
Once you've selected the type of product you'd like to sell, you'll need to decide what
kind of promotion you'd like to use. There are two main ways to promote your photos:
through social media and by email. If you're looking to build a following on Instagram,
you should consider posting images with hashtags related to your subject matter. This
will help people find your work more easily.
If you're interested in promoting your work via email, you can send out a newsletter
once per week or every few weeks. Include links to your website, blog, and other social
Too easy to be true?
Maybe. You see Fine Art America represents over one half a million artist world wide, that is a big crowd to try to stand out and get noticed. Unless you already have a big name or a very special product it will be hard to rise above the online noise of art sellers like yourself.
So if Fine Art America is not for you how do you sell your photography?
Personally I think you have a better chance of developing a good business is to develop your own style then do what every other successful art has done. Believe in yourself, love your style, and work your butt off to find clients who love your work.
