What's In It for You, Dear Artist?
The Artist’s Page will help build an online presence for you and your art. Our job is to spread the word about your talent and get people to notice!
Why The Artist's Page?
We know so many artists who create stunning pieces of art, but have no interest or no skill at marketing themselves.
That's where we come in.
The Artist's Page team will work with you to create the fast loading, mobile-friendly website of your dreams. We take care of all the technical details, including ensuring that your website is optimized for Search Engine Results (so you get found) as well as sizing & uploading your images correctly (So, your customers don’t get fed up waiting for your content to load and leave before they see how great your work is!)
You will also be a part of The Artist's Page website where we will provide our visitors with information about you and links to your personal website.
But we don't stop there...we continue to spread the word about you through social media, events and blogs.
You'll have your own artist's page bio & photo gallery.
It's a great way to begin building your online portfolio, where potential clients can browse examples of your work while they learn more about who you are as an artist and as a person. We know that once they've seen just a little of what you can do they'll be moved to click on that link to your own beautiful website.
We'll start a conversation, and keep it going.
We don’t want to just show your work we want to encourage a conversation around each piece. Let your fans know more, inspire them, get them talking about your work.
By including short descriptions or stories about each piece you give the people who love your work a chance to get a deeper understanding of the piece.
What materials, music, emotion, life circumstance, was your inspiration for the piece? Get the people who love your work talking about it!
We'll promote your events.
If you are participating in an upcoming art show, competition, or other event, we can help you to spread the word.
Our event calendar was created so that you can let people know where to look for you and your work.
We'll help you sell, both online and at events.
In addition to having your products in our store year round, you can also talk to us about how you can use the website to process payments if you are at a show or other event. It's a great way to offer online convenience, without having to manage all the technical-financial stuff yourself.
We'll take care of the website tech stuff.
We know how to make your images really count by utilizing the latest SEO tools when naming every properly sized image we upload to your page
You will benefit from the traffic generated by interest in other artists. When one artist draws in views we all benefit from that exposure.
We work hard to promote you and The Artist's Page... because it's good for all of us!
Through the use of general blogs as well as our popular Interviews with Our Artists series, we bring art enthusiasts to the website, where they can easily discover your original works and find links to your website and social media accounts. We make sure that visitors to our site can easily find out how to contact you regarding commissions, or even buy a piece of your work right off of our online art market or your website.
We drive traffic to our TheArtistsPage.ca website through regular, interesting, and relevant social media postings. Google (and other search engines) loves to see lots of traffic.
Traffic builds Google’s confidence in us, and Google’s confidence is essential if we want to be found out there in the world wide web.
Phew! There's lot's more, but if you've read all of this and are still interested, it's time to get in touch!

Building an Extraordinary Website
Our creative team uses everything we learned about you and your artwork in Phase 1 to design the perfect website to meet your objectives and beautifully showcase your artwork online.
Now it's time to focus even more on your objectives, appropriate calls to action and value propositions. We make sure that your homepage works for you and your customers! This phase includes finalization of the home page strategy and sitemap of your website.

In this phase, our team will populate your website with content and images. We'll work with you to create compelling content then check all spelling and grammar. Every web page will be search engine optimized (SEO) with the right balance of keywords to help you get found on Google.
Once your website is complete, it's time to launch. To do this, you can either give us access to your domain registrar account, and we'll manage the settings to point the domain to your new website, or if you're tech-savvy, you can do it yourself.
