That’s what my buddy, Mark, said when he saw that I was uploading images to FineArtAmerica. Of course, selling framed prints in a storefront gallery is the big time…or licensed to National Geographic or pretty much any other magazine for publication…but FAA is the top seller of framed art on the web to folks using Google in their searches although still getting the word out. For anyone so inclined, I’ve added a link in the menu on the right to my page there.
I have a lot to learn about using their services, but the key, as with most things in sales, is self-promotion…like mentioning it here, in emails, knocking on my neighbors’ doors, etc. How quickly your images show up in searches is based on sales. The more you make, the higher your ranking and the quicker people see them. I’d rather do my own printing and be able to sign the prints, but most people these days are looking for one stop shopping and that is what both FAA and my webhost, PhotoShelter, offer.
I opted out for shooting this morning. Mary Beth had the annual MLK breakfast, so I stayed home, tended the fire, kept the Murph company and read about soil ecology. In lieu of something current, here is a teaser of our next up season….Spring!
