There are over 40 million web sites on the internet and the number becomes higher each and every day
Some people are still under the belief that all they have to do is enter their url with search engines and people will flock to their site.
This is a common misconception
You have to work at promoting your site and keeping on top of what spiders, robots, and web crawlers are looking for. The search engines are constantly changing how and what they look for. This means not only must you stay on top of what they are looking for but you must also be submitting on a regular basis.
Search engines are now starting to charge people for listing with them and they do
not always accept sites. Be sure to read before you list, If you do get listed
this could take weeks and or months. To be listed with Art
Space 2000 it is
usually within 24 - 48 hours and you have instant access to over 2 million
visits a month that we receive.
are good but do you have time to be searching and finding locations to submit your banners
to sites that do not hide the banner at the bottom of the page?
Free for all sites are also okay but again more time is taken away from your painting.
Branding your name and work is as important as actually selling a painting.
However as you can see it takes a lot of
time and expense
We at artspace2000 understand that you do not have time for this as it can turn into an 8 hour full time job.
Your time as an artist is too valuable to waste trying to keep your site in the spotlight.
***Artists have traditionally marketed their work by sending samples to art directors or placing ads in talent directories, The rapid growth of the internet is changing all that, Many art directors are turning to online directories to quickly locate, view and purchase the art they need.
When art buyers from all over the globe enter Artspace 2000 (http://www.artspace2000.com) they can locate artist's samples in several different manners.
1. Search by name in alphabetical order
2. Search engine
3. Our Quick find
By each artists name they will see the flag of the country that you reside in to quickly show where you are located. Artspace 2000 is as user friendly as it can get. Art directors and designers can quickly locate an artist, see a sample of their work and even go to the artists web site or portfolio. From there they can contact the artist to negotiate an assignment.
No one can guarantee you will sell more paintings by listing with them but by having your name out there as often as possible you are branding your name and work.
Think of it this way.
If you were to take out an ad in the newspaper or an art magazine for example
you would pay more than $199.00usd for an ad that would last a month. Now ask
yourself how many of the readers would write down your URL and then go to their
computer and go to your web site. It is more likely they would finish reading
the magazine and then forget they saw your work. With artspace2000 you get 12 months of advertising and
people who come to our site come prepared to look at art and are therefor more
likely to go to your site with a click of the mouse.
Artspace2000 can promise you more hits to your site.
People such as Art Directors, Gallery owners, Art Buyers etc. all have 1 thing in common, they are extremely busy and it is rare you will find one with an empty desk and time on their hands.
That is where Art Space2000 comes in. One site where the buyer can come to and feel confident that they will find some of the best and reputable artists from around the globe and not have to waste time surfing the web for that right picture.
They may not need your image at this time but they want to keep your portfolio on file for future reference and they book mark your site. The minute they bookmark your site you have your portfolio on file in their office

A: For one thing, there are increasing numbers of sites competing for placements. For another,
ranking in Goggle/Yahoo is based on "referrals." In other words, your ranking depends on
how many other sites link to your site.
Most search engines are now starting to charge
links you have on higher ranked sites such as a 3 or
higher then the more value they see in your site.
A site with no ranking is of no value as far as the
search engine ranking goes.
Q: So which sites do well in
A: Institutional sites do best... museums, foundations,
virtual galleries. etc. [ larger sites ]

**Art directors would rather go to 1 site with several hundred artists than 100 sites with 1 artist.
The more artists on a web site the more art directors come to that web site. You can have the most beautiful site on earth... but if nobody knows it's there it won't work for you.
