20 Free Art Portfolio Websites to Market Your Art | Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery | Social Media MarketingStrategy for Artists | Scoop.it

Every month, at least 10% of the artists who enter our art competitions do not maintain an art website. I am not sure why, but it may have to do with the artist’s perception that an art website must have potential costs, or that there is a lack of time to maintain an art website or it is the fear of not knowing how to set up an art website? I am not sure if these assumptions are correct, as only the artist could tell us their reasoning for not having a website.

Top 20 Image Bookmarking Sites | CMYBacon

Top 20 Image Bookmarking Sites | CMYBacon | Social Media MarketingStrategy for Artists | Scoop.it

Image bookmarking sites are a great source of visual inspiration. People post interesting images they find on all corners of the web and link back to their source, introducing you to new blogs and websites that will inspire your creativity. There are lots of lists of image bookmarking sites out there, but I’ve found that many of them aren’t necessarily relevant because the sites they link to are no longer in existence. At some point this list, too, won’t be relevant but for the time being it should point you in the direction of some great places to check out.
