Posting Prices Online

Should I Post my Prices Online?

When it comes to posting prices for your paintings/sculptures/etc. on your website, there is a plethora of opinions.

Alyson Stanfield has discussed this on a blog post from 2004: http://www.artbizblog.com/2006/04/when-to-post-prices-for-your-art.html

I think it all depends what your business plan is, and the relationships you have established with your galleries. While I am okay with posting my prices online, I would never compete with a gallery that is carrying my work. If a painting is being carried in a gallery, I would not show it's price on my website, making sure that the viewer is directed to the gallery for inquires about the painting.

I'd love to hear your thoughts and experiences concerning this topic.

Linking Social Media Venus Together

How can I link different social media together to make my life easier?


There are many ways to make your life easier when it comes to Social Media, and new ways are being developed every day. The one that I like to use is a combination of Facebook, Blogger, and Twitter.

Whenever I Tweet on Twitter, the message automatically gets posted as my status in Facebook. In addition, whenever I post a blog to Blogger, it gets posted to my Wall on Facebook. In fact, this post will go onto my Facebook Wall.


To link your Blog to Facebook, follow these steps: http://buzz.blogger.com/2009/02/facebook-your-blog.html (Just a correction on the instructions in this video: The Application Settings are now at the top, right-hand corner of Facebook under Account).
You can also find instructions for these tasks and others in the FaceBook Help Center.
