Title: Set up my account with Fine Art Aamerica
Post by: Danielle123 on July 07, 2015, 10:39:14 AM
I have set up my account with Fine Art America.  It is under Danielle Potvin-Charette, please let me know what you think.    I  have put a few of my paintings but did not put any of the original for sale yet because I want to be familiar  with the site first.  Just the use of FAA's sale for prints, card. etc.

 :congrats:      :heeha:   This is just wonderful Danielle, so pleased to see the paintings from the challenges. I am going to send a referral to the owner of the Casa de Cafe, I think he'll be surprised and pleased to see your painting. Who knows.....it may even lead to a sale or two....  :gl2:

 :thankyou: Natalie and Jill for the encouragement.
 :thankyou: Val for the encouragement and the photos, (i did enter your name as the owner of the photos.  Don't know if you could see it though.  I did not put a sale for the original but if ever he/she is interrested they could contact me.   Thank you so much for that.

I got as far as setting up my Profile, then my computer got sick. 

I will continue setting up my Fineartamerica site when I get my computer back.

Looks great, Danielle!  :smitten:  :smitten:  :smitten: I think my favorite is the Arum Lilies, but they are all beautiful.

I hope you sell many  prints. I have found more people buying pillows and tote bags from my FAA site, rather than prints. (Which is a shame, because one only earns a very tiny commission from those things.)

 :thankyou: Susan,  yes there is not much money to get from that.  I think you have to up your prices.   I will see in one month if it is worth all the work.

remember you only do the work to add your artwork once, after that every cent you earn is free money as you don't have to lift a finger to earn it O0

Danielle - I set up my account with FAA, too - and told a couple of folks locally who have either bought a painting or liked a painting. Long story short, they've each bought tote bags on FAA of their favorite painting! Mind you, it's only a $5 commission, but heck, it's better than nothing! Anyway, if you have someone who bought one of your paintings that's on your FAA site, let them know they can purchase a tote bag to match - it's a great marketing tool!
