Most Powerful Feature Yet

Posted by: Administrator on 03/16/2010 - 4:48 PM

This is, by far, the most powerful feature released to date...

Effective immediately, all POD members now get their very own websites for promoting and selling their artwork.

I recently purchased the domain name "artistwebsites.com". If you take the URL for your FAA profile page and replace "fineartamerica.com" with "artistwebsites.com"... you'll be on your very own website!

Examples:

http://mike-irwin.artistwebsites.com/
http://1-eg-cleveland.artistwebsites.com/
http://karin-kuhlmann.artistwebsites.com/
http://elizabeth-edwards.artistwebsites.com/
http://scott-listfield.artistwebsites.com/
http://skip-hunt.artistwebsites.com/

Your website has all of the powerful features of FAA... but dedicated specifically to you:

-- The artwork page shows only your artwork.
-- The search engine searches only your artwork.
-- The events page shows only your events.

etc...

It's your very own FAA!

Plus - it's fully customizable. You can change the header graphic, header font, etc.

Your website stays perfectly in-sync with your FAA profile. If you post something to your website... it appears on FAA. If you post something on FAA... it appears on your website.

Take a look at some of these beautiful pages from some sample sites:

http://skip-hunt.artistwebsites.com/art/all/texture+and+color/canvas+prints
http://barbara-keith.artistwebsites.com/art/all/butterflies+and+bugs/canvas+prints
http://helena-nelsonreed.artistwebsites.com/art/all/goddesses/framed+prints
http://scott-listfield.artistwebsites.com/art/all/all/greeting+cards

Visitors to your website can purchase prints of your artwork with custom framing and matting (just like they do on FAA)... without ever leaving your site!

I could go on and on... but I'll end with this:

You've now got the power of FAA all to yourself. You've got the FAA search engine... FAA image rendering... FAA order fulfillment... FAA search engine optimization... FAA events calendar... etc... all dedicated to you and your artwork.

Best of all - your website is included at no extra charge to all POD members.

If you're a POD member, please give your new site a try and post your feedback here. Your login name and password are the same as what you use on FAA.

This is only the beginning. Like everything else on FAA, these sites will continue to get better and better (i.e. more features, more customizations, etc.)

Brian

WOW!!! Very cool!!

That is the most wonderful news, especially for sorts like me that have a www address connected directly to FAA (no other site of my own) and now I can have my own site courtesy this facility, when I join POD and when I work out how to set up, etc. THANK YOU, Brian. Also, thanks for the new home page that appears when I log in: all so sensible, legible, usable: kudos again. Sincerely, Vivian

 

Posted by: Sean McDunn on 03/16/2010 - 5:09 PM

Vivian,

Once you point your URL to your new website, let me know. I'd love to take a look and show everyone what you did. That's exactly what I hoped people would do.

Basically... for about $5, you can buy any domain name that you want (e.g. worldsgreatestartist.com) and then point that domain to your new FAA website (e.g. elizabeth-edwards.artistwebsites.com).

Once you do that, you can send people to http://worldsgreatestartist.com... and they'll see your new website.

Brian

 

Posted by: Roxy Riou on 03/16/2010 - 5:10 PM

Brian, that is soooo wonderful!!! THANK YOU!!! Brightest Blessings to you!

 

Posted by: Sean McDunn on 03/16/2010 - 5:12 PM

Roxy,

You're welcome.

Here's a page from your site:

http://roxy-riou.artistwebsites.com/art/all/floral+photography/canvas+prints

Just put your own header up top, and you're in business. It's a beautiful page of just your artwork!

I'm very excited about this feature, in case you can't tell.

Brian

 

Posted by: Roxy Riou on 03/16/2010 - 5:14 PM

I'm jumping up and down, Brian! :D Very excited too!!! lolol...Thank You Thank You!!!

 

Posted by: Liza Faucher on 03/16/2010 - 5:15 PM

I have to hand it to you Brian. Brilliant idea. For us as well as for you. Such a lovely symbiotic relationship between FAA and Artist

 

Posted by: Yvonne Ayoub on 03/16/2010 - 5:22 PM

Cool! Cool! COOL!! THANKYOU, Brian!! X

 

Posted by: Julie Lueders on 03/16/2010 - 5:24 PM

Super excited Brian!!!! Wahoo wahooo!!! Thank you!! You must work 24/7, you'll soon need a vacation!!
Awesome!!

 

Posted by: Judy Westergard on 03/16/2010 - 5:27 PM

Wow! This is wonderful. Thank you, Brian.

 

Posted by: Christine Till on 03/16/2010 - 5:28 PM

This is way cool!
I'm going to play with it never ending.

Thanks a million.

Do you already know if and how these very own websites will show up in Google and other SE's?

 

Posted by: Scott Hovind on 03/16/2010 - 5:32 PM

Brian, thank you very much. I just have to figure out how to incorporate this into the website I already have and play around with this but I think I'm going to love it. And two weeks early.

 

Posted by: Sean McDunn on 03/16/2010 - 5:36 PM

With these new websites, I'm trying to solve all of the problems that make it difficult for artists to sell online.

Most artists do not have their own websites... or if you do, you face the following problems:

1. It can be very difficult to sell prints via your own site... not anymore.
2. It can be very time consuming trying to optimize your website for high rankings in Google... not anymore.
3. When you post new artwork on your website, the only people who know about it are the 10 - 20 people who visit your site each day. Not anymore... now the entire FAA community and our 3+ million monthly visitors will know about it.
4. It can be very difficult to display your artwork in various configurations (i.e. different frames, stretched canvases, greeting cards, etc.)... not anymore.
5. It can be very difficult to design an internal search engine that finds your artwork quickly and easily... not anymore.

etc...

In order to be successful online, you need a website that's very user-friendly, visually-appealing, and makes it easy for visitors to make a purchase. That's exactly what these new websites are designed to do.

I'm committed to making these websites the most powerful, affordable artist websites anywhere on the internet. They're only going to get better from here.

Brian

 

Posted by: Shelley Jones on 03/16/2010 - 5:40 PM

Brian............you are awesome. I don't know what to say other than Thank You so much. I'd kiss you, but I don't know where you live. LOL

Posted by: Judy Westergard on 03/16/2010 - 5:49 PM

I just customized my own header. This was easier than making a peanut butter sandwich! Again, my thanks.

 

Posted by: David Lane on 03/16/2010 - 6:03 PM

Thanks for your efforts. I really like the new sites. i sent you an email ... ignore it I missed those big buttons at the top somehow!

 

Posted by: Karin Kuhlmann on 03/16/2010 - 6:08 PM

Brian this is sooo cool! For me it's now a little bit late in the evening but will have tomorrow a closer look at it...thank you!

 

Posted by: Micheal Lemus-Fletchall on 03/16/2010 - 6:09 PM

Simply amazing, I can't wait to work on it tonight :)

Big Thanks, Brian!!!

- Micheal

 

Posted by: Larry Ricker on 03/16/2010 - 6:10 PM

This is Super, Brian!

Just one thing I noticed off the bat... Formatting (eg. line breaks) that I have in my bio on my FAA page don't appear on my website (paragraphs run together). I also have some HTML in my FAA bio (links to my website, facebook, etc.) that gets ignored on the website bio. I tried changing my bio via the artistwebsite site... It changed the FAA bio but did nothing on the website bio.

Overall, I really love this new feature. Keep up the great work!

 

Posted by: Scott Hovind on 03/16/2010 - 6:10 PM

You can now add google analytics to your store by pasting the code in your bio. It seems to be working, I'll know for certain tomorrow.

 

Posted by: Patrick Anthony Pierson on 03/16/2010 - 6:17 PM

To loosely borrow from that famous Eggers title:

This is, 'A Groundbreaking Work of Staggering Genius,' by Brian McDunn.

Positively brilliant!

 

Posted by: Frank Wilson on 03/16/2010 - 6:18 PM

WOW!!!!!

Somehow, I just knew that something this was in the works and waited patiently.

THANK YOU!

 

Posted by: Barbara White on 03/16/2010 - 6:21 PM

Thanks Brian........this is wonderful!

 

Posted by: Debi Peralta on 03/16/2010 - 6:23 PM

Brian, it is because of developments like these, plus all the hard work you put into service to the artists here on FAA, that keeps me directing my followers to FAA first before anywhere else. You do such awesome work here.

 

Posted by: Jean Booth on 03/16/2010 - 6:26 PM

Oh, WOW! Thanks so much! I was just thinking this morning (again) that I should do something about a web site!

 

Posted by: Viktor Savchenko on 03/16/2010 - 6:31 PM

Wind of changes again. Thanks. Waiting for more customized futures.

 

Posted by: Michael Geraghty on 03/16/2010 - 6:38 PM

Five Stars Brian, no doubt you will have a few hiccups, but an absolutely brilliant feature. Well Done.

 

Posted by: Wingsdomain Art and Photography on 03/16/2010 - 6:49 PM

Too cool Brian, thanks!

 

Posted by: Micheal Lemus-Fletchall on 03/16/2010 - 6:51 PM

<---- was overwhelmed by PURE AWESOMENESS.... recovering slowly.... :)

 

Posted by: Thomas Young on 03/16/2010 - 7:02 PM

Thank you so much Brian! I have been thinking of getting my own web and now you have given me one. THANK YOU -THANK YOU!

 

Posted by: Deborah Benoit on 03/16/2010 - 7:02 PM

Thanks Brian this is just awesome. Did I say I love this site!!

 

Posted by: Charles Peck on 03/16/2010 - 7:02 PM

http://charles-peck.artistwebsites.com/index.html - I think mine is working fine and shortly I'll have some help changing it around...Karin got me this far, thanks Karin.

This the biggest thing yet - POD & your own website for only 30 bucks, it is an out of this world deal...........here's too you Brian, once again showing the way.

 

Posted by: Deborah Benoit on 03/16/2010 - 7:03 PM

Me too Thomas I was also thinking of getting a website.

 

Posted by: Barbara McDevitt on 03/16/2010 - 7:05 PM

Brian this is wonderful ! Thank you. Now I haven't read all the posts before mine but see that I need to add my own website to the bio information and re-do the address and links on my website plus my business cards. Looks great though I'm lovin' it.

 

Posted by: Juergen Roth on 03/16/2010 - 7:25 PM

Wonderful news Brian ... thank you so much! I am considering to get rid of my primary website, keep my original domain name and just link over to the FAA one ... can't get easier.

 

Posted by: Mary Ellen Mueller Legault on 03/16/2010 - 7:26 PM

Brian, (or pseudo-Brian or CyberBrian) This is a wonderful feature and I love it and thank you for the technologically advancement it affords, I repeat, it is wonderful.... however, I do have one question. If I am on my own personal profile page here at FAA and I poke the website link on that page, should this not take me directly to this new featured website? Am I being too picky or is my computer not up to scratch or am I missing a link? I don't want to be compared to the missing link so please help me.

FIVE MINUTES LATER.......
O.K. I have figured it out, sorry for having disturbed you.....for those who have not figured it out, you must go back to your profile page, under contact information, and enter the address in the website link box..... (that is all in layman's terms).

 

Posted by: Richard Rizzo on 03/16/2010 - 7:31 PM

This is awesome news thank you Brian !!

how do I sign in? :?

Found it, Thank you !!! :))

 

Posted by: Linda Sannuti on 03/16/2010 - 7:32 PM

WOW>>>Very Awesome Brian! I was gonna make my own website but now this is exactly what I was hoping for since I was going to use the shopping cart anyway..Super excited, getting ready to do my business cards and now I have a private professional website to put on them..THanks so much!!!! :) Looks awesome too!

 

Posted by: Michael TMAD Finney on 03/16/2010 - 7:51 PM

i have already got mine all jacked up looking sweeeeet!!.. love the features brian.. http://michael-tmad-finney.artistwebsites.com/

 

Posted by: Anne Norskog on 03/16/2010 - 8:12 PM

Brian McDunn you are a prince among men! Bless you! What a fabulous gift you have given all your artists on POD.

 

Posted by: Jessica Jenney on 03/16/2010 - 8:20 PM

Thanks so much, Brian! It's a fantastic new feature and I'll be using it as my main website! I noticed that on the artwork page, the artwork is listed backwards, meaning that the first image is the last one on the website! Can this be changed?

 

Posted by: Isabella F Abbie Shores FRSA on 03/16/2010 - 8:24 PM

Brian, I have now purchased a new domain >>Elizabeth Edwards Art<<
I have forwarded WITH masking so when you go to that site, my new domain, you see FAA custom shop but its on MY domain :)

 

Posted by: Mary Deal on 03/16/2010 - 8:34 PM

Mine is up and running. What fun! I intend to play with it a little more, especially when some new features are added.

Thank you, Brian !!!

 

Posted by: Wolf Daughter on 03/16/2010 - 8:58 PM

I just signed in and noticed all the new changes. And a website! Awesome. THANK YOU!

 

Posted by: Paul Anderson on 03/16/2010 - 9:04 PM

Wow, I've been working all day on my new website that will allow credit card purchases of my art and then this...blows me away.

Thanks Brian. I'm convinced now I did the right thing to resign another website that can come close and yet charged a hefty price.

I'll connect to this new site for the prints and cards and hook back for the sale of originals.

 

Posted by: Mary Deal on 03/16/2010 - 9:08 PM

I've been playing around with all the features on these new sites. It's incredible. Your viewers can now see what your art will look like as a canvas, poster, greeting card. All art has a border. The features are endless.

Then, play around with your Tags. I will need to change a few, but the Tags bring up different art when you're in canvas, or poster or greeting cards. "Red" will bring up any art in red, for example, if you've Tagged it that way. So now I will need to add Tags pertaining to colors of each piece, etc. The possibilities are limitless.

Now we need to get people to our new sites. The sites offer so many new advantages for capturing a viewer's interest and their sale.

Wow, Brian!!!!

 

Posted by: Sandra Bronstein on 03/16/2010 - 9:28 PM

Hi Brian:

Just got home and saw the big changes. Wow - looks really interesting! Can't wait to play around and see how everything works. Thanks so much for your efforts. So very much appreciated.

 

Posted by: Angelique Bowman on 03/16/2010 - 9:42 PM

Brian, I discovered this before I saw your posting, and I am so extatic about this! I pretty much use this site as my main artist site, and it's always a little tricky giving people my page, but this makes things so much easier and looks more professional. Thanks so much!!!

Posted by: Ann Horn on 03/16/2010 - 10:06 PM

What a marvelous gift you have given to all of us! I can't begin to thank you adequately! Brian, I am soooo very grateful!

 

Posted by: Tony Rodriguez on 03/16/2010 - 10:06 PM

This is by far the coolest and amazing add-on you've done Brian. I've just changed the name on the forums I frequent, business cards, and everywhere else I had the other one on, to direct clients to the new one. BRAVO!!!!!!!!!

 

Posted by: Heather Hennick on 03/16/2010 - 10:07 PM

So would my website be.. 1-heather-hennick.artistwebsites.com?
could i change the name to something simpler?

great work!!!I just need a little help to understand the technical stuff before I put it on my business cards.

 

Posted by: Jeff Breiman on 03/16/2010 - 10:12 PM

Thank you Brian!

 

Posted by: Min Wang on 03/16/2010 - 10:46 PM

Outstanding Brian....this is wonderful....I will change my website forwarding to the new one. Just one question...will this new site turn up on a google search ?

OK. This is pretty cool. Maybe I won't renew my own domain and just go with this as my web site.

Can I edit the CSS file for my own site?

Posted by: Ricky Sencion on 03/16/2010 - 11:18 PM

Thanks Brian

looking forward to the new features down the road. I've been with FAA for less than 2 months and it's been a motivating feature in my artisitc journey.

ricky

 

Posted by: Georgiana Romanovna on 03/16/2010 - 11:28 PM

Brian, I just logged in to FAA and read this, put my name in how you said, and I sincerely have no idea what to say. This is such a beautiful gesture on your part, and a gift to us all, now its up to us to do some more hard work in promotion.

Huge Sincere Thank you!!!


Now for some serious deleting of works I do not want in my store :)

Posted by: David Dunham on 03/16/2010 - 11:49 PM

I got to agree. Way freaking WOW! Brian you never cease to amaze! Got to go customize! Maybe, kind of like it like it is!

 

Posted by: Kathy Garcia on 03/16/2010 - 11:50 PM

Wow this is just great Brian! Thank you so much.

It seems that you are working very hard to create a place possible and affordable to all artists around the world. I wish I could put into words my deep satisfaction that you have given us. Thank you and keep up the wonderful work.

Hi Brian,

this is a really cool feature. I love it! :-) And the nice thing is really I can modify the design of my homepage as I like it. I am looking forward to the new features to be even more flexible regarding the design of my homepage.

Thank you very much for your work!

Posted by: Mario Donk on 03/17/2010 - 3:18 AM

I came across it today, I like it, it looks great so It is up and running from my own website, all a customer needs do is go to the button that says Giclee prints, it scrolls down and you click the Fine art prints and the new FAA website opens. I set the link to target _blank so it opens a new page in the browser without losing my own site which now stays open as well. Thanks Brian, its very good.

 

Posted by: Karin Kuhlmann on 03/17/2010 - 4:21 AM

Brian, this is such a BIG step into the right direction for all who want to avtively market their works. I love it!
here is mine: http://karin-kuhlmann.artistwebsites.com/index.html
Now I have to work hard to point all the links from my homepage and other art sites to my new personalized portfolio...but it's worth every effort :-)
Thousand thanks!

Concerning the galleries. Before we can create a new gallery we have to make a description for that gallery. But the text doesn't show up. Is there a way to have it with our galleries?

Thanks

 

Posted by: Tom Hefko on 03/17/2010 - 9:30 AM

Great work Brian!

http://tom-hefko.artistwebsites.com/index.html

In the past i have linked images on my personal website to images on the FAA custom shopping cart. Now that this new discrete website feature is on board, i'd rather link to the images as represented there, as i think purchase options are better presented than on the shopping cart. This will involve a lot of tedious work. Any suggestions?

 

Posted by: Diane Merkle on 03/17/2010 - 9:47 AM

Brian, thank you so much. Things have just started really booming for me and this is just going to move that along. Will have to re-do business cards but I can live with that!

 

Posted by: Lois Bryan on 03/17/2010 - 10:19 AM

I love it!!!!!! I'm only sorry I just had new business cards printed up ... would have loved to have included this new site instead ... oh well!!!! Just means I'll have to start giving the ones I have now out at a faster rate!!!! Thank you very much for this professional place to display our work!!! YAY!!!

 

Posted by: Brenda Phillips on 03/17/2010 - 10:33 AM

Thanks Brian.This is aewsome!

 

Posted by: Susanne Van Hulst on 03/17/2010 - 10:33 AM

This is now the BEST what ever could happen to us artists here on FAA. THANK you all who have worked on this project and made it so perfect. I know how hard it is to do all the SEO work from my other website - here I have it for free, or almost free :)

Thank you guys!!!

Susanne

 

Posted by: Terry Groehler on 03/17/2010 - 10:50 AM

Brian..I just virtually adopted you. Look forward to KidzArt and Art Innovators flooding FAA and ArtWebsites. When I'm not wearing my lazy pants I will link FAA and AW all over the net.

This is wonderful, Brian. I have two domain names I have been waiting to use when I can take the time & money to get a personal website up....now I don't have to wait anymore! I'm very excited about the possibilities. Thanks so much for doing this for us!

Thanks again Brian for this wonderful powerful feature! I matched my Website Header to my headshot! Check it out, it looks great!

Posted by: Mike Irwin on 03/17/2010 - 3:48 PM

until FAA, there were two categories of these types of sites on the internet:

1. sites where you get what you paid for
2. sites where you paid and got less than you expected.

now thanks to FAA, there is a third:

3. You pay and get much more than you realized you were getting.

so Brian, thank you. you are not only a great web developer, but you've displayed a business model to be reckoned with, and you are truly in a category all your own. FAA is twice the site i thought i was paying for.

I just updated my home site and created my new FAA home page. Also created links from each image at my home site http://artsgraphics.com to my new site! Now there is really no need to do the custom shopping cart!

Here's the new FAA site:http://arthur-fix.artistwebsites.com/index.html

This is great. I was just about to join a web hosting site for $100.00/ year, now I can have it for $30.00.

VERY cool, Brian ... I know it's been said before ... but A BIG THANK YOU for doing such hard work for all of us - for helping each of us try to better sell our art ... You're one in a million!! {{{xxxx}}}

I too was just asking someone about starting a new website for myself ... sometimes I swear that, you - Brian, can read minds. ;-)

Everyone ----- I've looked at each one of your websites as they were posted here and I have to say .... they all look amazing!!!

Thank you again, Brian. I know I never used the .org for some reason; now I know why :)

Changed things around to make it look better, at least I hope so anyway. Working on making sure the tags are filled in. Again, thanks Brian this is so wonderful.

Congratulations Brian,

Great idea and a great job with establishing the artistwebsites.com

Just customized my header - piece of cake.

Note that I was fine with the default header that was created but couldn't resist the temptation to play.

Great job Brian.

Jim, http://jim-plaxco.artistwebsites.com/

 

Posted by: Mike McMurray on 03/18/2010 - 12:04 PM

What a fantastic new feature! I've been waiting for something like this to show up =) Thanks Brian and all of the FAA Staff!

I love being able to customize the header as well. Definitely gives a more "personal" touch.

absolutly amazing, I'm so excited about this and the possibilities. Great work and thank you!

 

Posted by: Robert Jerore on 03/18/2010 - 8:31 PM

Brian:
This old man is about as dumb as a rock. (Now, you don't have to go around repeating this.)

After banging my head around in the new site a few times, I seem to have gotten the knack of it, and I've also learned a few more things about using fineartamerica because of it. My only hope would be for a little more leaway in the height of the header. Maybe to be given a choice of height size...within reason of course.

Other than that...I like what it offers. As other artists have done; I thank you too.

Wonderful news Brian, this is great news. There have been a lot of nice changes to FAA......WTG!!!

 

Posted by: Ken Powers on 03/19/2010 - 12:59 AM

I am very excited about this feature and am tempted to dump my regular website and point my regular domain name (http://www.powersfineart.com/) to this new page. As it is, when I am finished with a painting it takes nearly an hour for me to create all my marketing pages on my main site to promote it. I then have to update my blog, news, and facebook pages to reflect the new artwork. Now, with one fell swoop I can cover all my bases. Very, very well done Brian. What an amazing time-saver this could be for me. I can't wait to see what is around the corner next.

Posted by: Antony Galbraith on 03/19/2010 - 3:18 PM

Brian,
It never ceases to amaze me at all the hard work you do for us artists. No other artist POD website offers the attention and care you give to providing quality service for the artists and their customers. Thank you so much for what you do! I love this new feature, I look forward to using it, though I have to admit I am still catching up with all the other great additions you have added.
Best wishes,
DoAn

Hi Brian,

As redundant as it may be ... Thank you!!! Not only is your hard work at putting this together appreciated ... but sharing with others is so appreciated .... sadly .. not seen often enough... although I firmly believe that helping others just helps ourselves ... Karma ...what goes around, comes around. Thank you again~! Shannon

 

Posted by: Jim Coe on 03/19/2010 - 5:19 PM

Posted by: Pauline Ross on 03/19/2010 - 6:52 PM

I emailed the new address to an org. I belonged to in NY of about 300 women in business I was part of years ago. Hopefully they will network and share a past presidents webpage! lol Good timing for their 30th year celebration and past presidents recognition too! Ya never know.
