Building your email list.
Filed under: Support Feature Email Tags: Email+List

You can review and manage all the email listings registered to your site. The email management feature is found under your "Member Site". Log in, click on the link "Build or Maintain information to Market your site" and look for "Add or update your mailing list information". Pay very close attention to the email address lettering. An email address is a tricky thing. Each address is a unique set of characters. If however, there is just one letter out of place, the email will not be delivered. What is even worse, it might go to someone you do not even know! So carefully write it down, and carefully enter it on your site. What does an email address look like? All email addresses have a @ sign in the middle. They do not have www. Usually they are written as: name@website.com For example, the webmaster of the MyArtClub.Com site has an email address of webmaster@myartclub.com To enter an email address on to your site First you must log in, then click on the link "Build or Maintain information to Market your site" and look for "Add or update your mailing list information". In the next screen, you will see a box showing who is already on your list. To the right of the box you see a space to put the email address just below the words "Enter Email address". Optionally, you can enter the person's name. If you have a lot of email addresses to enter, you can enter them in bulk. Click on the "Load Bulk email addresses" link. You can Bulk Load email addresses by entering them in the box displayed separated by ; (semi-colons) and clicking on the Bulk Add email addresses button. To enter the name, add it first with the email address between angle brackets < > For example: John Smith; J Smith; maggiesmith@hotmail.com Note the ; (semi-colon) at the end of each line except for the last one. When you click on the Bulk Add email addresses button, the list will be processed and your current mailing list will be displayed. You can click on the maintain your mailing list link to return to the first screen. You can delete one or more of the addresses on your list by clicking on the address (or holding down the Ctrl key while clicking on multiple addresses) and then clicking on the "delete email address(es)" button under the box. MyArtClub.Com attempts to keep the email list free from junk emails with a sign up screening however, your list may end up with junk emails that have gotten by our screening. We attempt to validate the email addresses whenever you send out a notice to your email list and will delete any addresses which fail the validation. You will notice an OK at the beginning of the email list. This indicates that the email at least passed the validation list. It may still be a junk email address. When you have added a few names to your mailing list, you can send them a notice about your art or upcoming shows. Just reload one of your pictures on your site. Perhaps one you are showing. (Or replace one picture with a new one - it is your choice). Then use the "Notify Your Fans" and add your message about your show; the resulting email will have a web link to the address of your picture attached to your note, to bring visitors to your site.

Tooting your own horn
Filed under: Images Email Feature Tags: Email+List

In a previous blog Building your email list we discussed how to create and maintain your email list. Also discussed on our previous blog Loading your art images on the web we discussed how to properly size your images for loading on your web site. In this blog, we discuss how to bring the two events together. When you have loaded your image to your website, we present you with the opportunity to send out an email to your email list touting your latest accomplishments. By clicking on the link presented, you can send out an predefined email with links back to your site as well as to the image you just loaded. You can also add your own message to the email inviting folks to view your image or using it as a marketing email to invite folks to your latest exhibition or an art show, perhaps referencing the art image as one of the pictures that will be included at the event. 'Content is King' they say on the Internet, so be sure to keep your site up to date. Go through your pages to remove out of date content. Why not display some of your more recent art? Will you be showing soon? Use the MyArtClub.Com email tool to send your fans a link to your latest works and invite them to your show. Selling art cards for Christmas? Send an image to your email list with your order information. Create some interest with your clients! This article was first published in the My Art Newsletter #8 read more ...

Create an Artist blog on your MyArtClub site
Filed under: Utility Images Feature Support Tags: Manage+Images HTML Email+List Manage+Site

First, be sure you want to do this, it is a commitment, which we believe is worth the rewards. You build audience, and create a legacy of text based thoughts, focused on your audience. Not sure about having a blog, read our post about why. Best practices are to be regular, so try to commit to what you can do. Content should be authentic, helpful, and targeted. Imagine who you are talking to as you write. Use words that your audience would use to search for help or information about your topic. Activate your artist blog by visiting the artist options. Click on the top bar ARTIST,(as illustrated below) and then select menu item 5, "Artist Site Options". You will then see this page below. Put a 1 in the "Artist blog" square, scroll to the bottom of the page and click on the gray button "Update Artist Options" and you now have a blog! Your artist blog is automatically connected to your website. Posting an artist blog entry: Now that you have activated your artist blog, click on BLOG (see the upper red arrow illustrated below) and come to your main Blog menu. Here you can work with individual entries. On this page you can launch a new posting, see the lower red arrow. After launching a new post, you see this blank page below. Enter your text here. IMPORTANT: create your blog first in a separate word document on your computer. When you have it mostly done, copy the article, and paste it here. This avoids time out issues, and losing the blog post. As well in word programs you have the advantage of spell check. Be sure to hit the gray button "Add Blog Entry" or "Update Blog Entry"every time you change your text, or add an image. Once a blog is posted, the date is registered. Now add some HTML - the basics are simple for example, the most common code is to use to create paragraph breaks. Much more on this here Just as with all the text boxes on your artist website, this lets you create links to other references, and images! Spice up your MyArtClub blog with images! Images can be placed in your MyArtClub blog using the utility we have built in to your blogs. Add as many of your art works can be loaded in, here is how: Enter text above where you want the picture. Click "Update Blog Entry" to save. Click on "to add image" Select image to load Under the image to load, choose "Display on Left" or "Display on Centre" or "Display on right" as you wish You will see you then return to the blog page. You will see some text has been added to your blog text, this is the image data. Click Update Blog Entry to save revised text including the new image. Note you can now add more text, after the image too. Just add text below the image data, and remember to click "Update Blog Entry" gray button at the bottom to save. If you need to add space between image, or to spread out text, use the html paragraph spacer noted above. You can even add more than one image, and text following the above steps, as many times as you like. The effect is like a picture book. Imagine using it to show step by step of your image being developed! Use the Preview button to edit your blog. This is critical. You want to see how it looks, and check all your links and spacing. TIP: When you are done all your edits, copy the entire blog entry box, and save a copy on your word program - then you have all the html you figured out last time for your next time! Manage your blog posts:Click on the top BLOG menu to see your blogs. Here you can see postings by date. One very good promotional idea is to email your blog. This is an effective way to reach out to your community when you have a new blog. Do this using our built in tool available at the above page. Click on Send email. Here you can also manage comments received, and after you have a few blogs, you may want to visit this page one more time, and add tags. Have more questions about artist blogging? Let us know your ideas and issues, please comment below, or write to us at Webmaster@MyArtClub.Com Send us a request if you would like a copy of our word file with all the html that created this blog entry, it can serve as an example for you on using html, and multiple images. read more ...
