Question about art website

Discussion in 'Business of Photography' started by William Kahn, Oct 30, 2019.

  1. Good morning, all,
    I'm looking for advice regarding a website, Art Storefronts (patricks@artstorefronts.com) in Austin, TX.
    It looks like a worthwhile operation, but the number of glowing email praises on the internet also make
    it look like a scam. Does anyone on PNet have any experience, good or bad, with this outfit?
    Thanks for your help.
     
  2. I wouldn't be choosing them. They aren't even willing to show their pricing. I've had 4 different websites and NEVER have I had to fill out a questionnaire to request a price. Maybe their selling that info? I've been selling my photos for 40 years and I'm a member of several Art Associations and I know of no other photographers that sell between $20-100,00. per year on their website. Now, if this company is set up to work for an artist who does the national fine art show circuit then maybe they can reach those kinds of numbers. Or weddings, school sports, etc. I've used Photoshelter, Zenfolio, Squarespace, and Fine Art America. The latter only costs $30 a year and it's a print on demand site, while the others start at around $130 and go up depending on what you need.

  3. I didn't get a good 'feel' from Art Storefronts either. The website doesn't provide any don't pride any info beforehand but wants your info first. There are many other ''storefront'' websites (Wix, Foursquare, etc.) that I'd recommend first.
