Marketing Art

The Artist's Market is an opportunity for you to promote and sell your works and services on line - the following step by step instructions will help you get going.  

Step 1

What am I offering for sale?

Is it competitively priced priced?

Have I taken into account the cost of postage, packaging?

 Am I able to dispatch orders on time?



Step 2

Creating the right impression

Badly photographed images will discourage potential buyers.

Ensure pictures displaying  your items in the shop window are in focus - symmetrical with straight edges and free of distortion anything superfluous to the item should be cropped. 


Step 3

Making the sale

Simply uploading pictures on to a website is not enough, we have to sell our wares.

For example if you are selling a work of art the customer will wish to know - The name of the artist - the title- the medium - its size in cm - framed or unframed - price - how and when it will be delivered.

Go to the Market and see examples.  

Step 4

Launching my product 

A participating member may display up to five items in each category.

Each item should be submitted separately by email to staffordartgroup@gmail.com with descriptive notes and photograph attached.

Ensure that text and photographs accurately describe the items offered for sale.

Step 5

Filling an order

At the time of purchase the system generates a 'Purchase Order Confirmation'  copies of which go via email to the buyer and the seller.
The seller is responsible for delivering goods within the timeframe promised.
In the event of a credit sale (PayPal)  the artist will receive payment on confirmation of delivery.
