ArtRave on the Go~!!

Using ‘ArtRave Categories’ Free Classifieds ~ For Family Friendly Arts & Crafts promos~!

The ArtRave Categories menu is also published on other websites affiliated with ArtRave & ArtRave blogs.

Members are free to use the comment text box to promote and sell their art commission free, direct to buyers.

Use the little tool bar atop the text box that has a camera icon, to place an individual pic of your Art/craft/handmade jewelry etc., along with editing in the Description of your art : Title, medium used, size, shipping info, price, contact info etc, added along with your art picture so that you can show or offer your art for sale, commission free, on ArtRave Categories.

All submissions have to be ‘family friendly’ suitable for all ages to view as we do not filter art.

No nudity, profanity or illicit art is allowed and must not be submitted or you could be banned from using the site..

The ArtRave Categories menu is a java script menu which I post to numerous websites.

Viewers of other websites and pages can then access the category from anywhere online by clicking on any category/ topic. They will then find your ads instantly and be able to connect them to your mini webpage here on ArtRave.

Your free mini webpage given free when you become a member of ArtRave, has text boxes that you can customize to promote your art.

You can use it as your homepage .

Your webpage is a very valuable tool and asset when starting out online, especially if you do not have your own website.

It also is a good home base ‘hub’ to use if you as an artist have multiple websites.

You can list all your internet art related sites, blogs, shops, galleries & contact information on your own customizable home web page, including placing your own paypal payment receiving.

[Learn how to make a Paypal button in the Forum]

Keep all your internet sites, links etc here in one easy to access place. Make it a wealth of information to any viewer seeking to know more about you and where you sell your art online.

I have developed this system to provide free promotional advertising for all artists.

Originally I built this site specifically to be a hub for all my own online art & websites, but later opened it so other artists can join and promote their art alongside my own.

I made instructional forum posts including how-to-do’s, tutorials , where to advertise, how to advertise and more so any artist can use the resources here to develop their own websites as well.

I advertise online so other artists can learn to do likewise or piggyback along with my ads which offer viewers a variety of art.

This site is ever evolving as I learn new venues for us as artists to use online,therefore there will be changes along the way that will be designed to making each member’s art more visible to the public and easier to find in search engines to those seeking to buy art.

I share the info for the do-it=yourselfers, it is labor intensive and very time consuming for me but for artists wanting more specific custom attention I had to develop several upgraded membership levels , which I now have in place on site .

Check here: COMPARE TYPES OF ARTRAVE MEMBERSHIPS

These levels of memberships began to evolve when my current hosting company started charging money for the site, so I have to pay extra for each feature.

Using the groups/club feature to showcase art, didnt raise the costs that I have to pay monthly so, so I developed this feature to create the ArtRave Categories & clubs for cross promotion links to other popular art print sites. I have been telling members to use this FREE feature to their benefit.The more art listed there, the more viewers it will attract which will benefit all the artists who use the feature.

ArtRave Categories currently remains free to all members.

The ArtRave Gallery feature includes slideshows & include off site web hosting, This include the monthly fee on the bandwidth usage we have to pay our hosting company.

As a result of the hosting charges which I pay monthly, it is necessary that the cost be paid by those using the Gallery feature here at ArtRave by the creation of various levels of membership.

I strive to keep ArtRave to include free memberships as well as to be affordable for all artists,

Donations from viewers and members will enable poor artists to post their art into the ArtRave Categories and for some to keep their current Gallery simply by requesting a waiver on subscription costs due to economic hardship.

Currently many Gallery members are being supported by donations, however donations currently being received have not met the costs of ArtRave and we are running at a deficit and need help. I am working without salary and have personally devoted over 8,000 working hours to development of this site to help other artists!

I want to invite all art promoters & art advertisers to come and advertise here on ArtRave, to help offset operating costs and will gladly accept any size donation to help keep the site running.Using the Paypal Donation button makes supporting ArtRave easy with a click of the button provided and the amount is up to the individual as to what they would like to donate.

Members, Supporters & Advertisers can help by ordering a banner ad which is a low cost ad displayed on our front page & included on other websites, blogs & more.

Lowcost Ad prices are the most economical anywhere on the internet~!!

My slideshow banner ads start at only $3.50 a month and these slideshow ads get promoted on numerous websites online so you can advertise any site where you sell or your ArtRave webpage that you can post all your sites at~ so the advertising here can have phenominal results.

Artists wishing to advertise on and offsite, can buy an annual banner ad which will automatically promote and advertise their art online, I have developed some ‘Top 100’ sites that are exclusive to 100 artists per site which will bolster any artist’s presence in search engines to those seeking art.

Here are the current sites and memberships available for only $25/year

1.]TOP 100 FEATURED ARTISTS

2.]TOP 100 PORTRAIT ARTISTS
3.]TOP 100 SPACE ARTISTS
4.]TOP 100 ETSY JEWELRY MAKERS
5.]TOP 100 Pet & Wildlife Artists

6.]100 TOP ABSTRACT ARTISTS

7.]BEST ACEO’s ONLINE

I am just a single artist like the rest of you, trying to work online and have devoted most my time over the passed two years in free labor promoting all ArtRave artists.

ArtRave is growing and getting better known all over the internet but needs help & support so each poor artist can show & sell their art.

I do not charge any commissions for using the site to sell art and

allow artists to show and sell direct to buyers.

.

The basic Gallery membership includes uploading up to 60 pictures into the gallery part of this site for only $3 a month through Paypal subscription which can be canceled any time ~

For those seeking to be part of the elite family friendly ArtRave Gallery who have alot of art to display, a Premium Gallery membership allows up to 200 pictures to be posted for only $7.95 a month hosting fee~! This includes the use of sharable slideshows we host all over the internet~!

APAS Gallery memberships include more personalized labor on my part to specifically promote members of APAS, for only $12.95 a month that I will advertise and promote your art here and elsewhere online~! This includes up to 200 pictures in the ArtRave Gallery as well.~!

This is for all artists that basically can use the forums to do their own promotions, but enables the artist to have up to 60 pictures hosted here and to also helps the site to grow. AS a gallery member you can then use the slideshow feature to ‘share’ and copy the embedded code to post anywhere online you want, although it is hosted here which means I have to pay the hosting fees to the hosting company which happens to be Ning.

I also have several other sites linked to this one that have free galleries on them that you can upload your art to that have no current hosting fees. I try to find and develop as many free sources for artists as I can.

ArtRave is unique among Art network sites as you are allowed to promote any art site you belong to. Many other art sites wont allow cross promotions but here it is encouraged as the purpose is to help artists collectively. We have had over 32,000+ unique visitors since starting and some of our artists, such as Nan Wright & Murphy Elliott have had sales through being listed here in our clubs and using links to their POD sites.

Please take some time to explore ArtRave Supergroups & Clubs Directory .and our How-to do self help FORUM

List your art topically in the ArtRave Categories that apply. List them also in the Art by Price categories. See some of the current clubs an sign in to post links back to the appropriate clubs, such as Fine Art America, Imagekind, Zazzle and so on [ if you belong to them ] or go to their sites, join and then come back and post links to those galleries or shops. The more you can promote, the better it is for you to get known online and the better known you get, the better the chances of meeting the promoters or buyers that would be interested in your work. Art online is extremely competitive, so making your work stand out is accomplished by promotions.

I can hold uploaded submissions in the approval bay for 24 hours, in case you wish to upgrade to one of the gallery memberships, which in that case can then be approved and posted.

If you do not wish the basic gallery membership ] $3 month subscription through Paypal ] or an enhanced membership, there is no pressure to do so, however your pictures can not then be in the Gallery due to hosting fees.

If you can and do decide to upgrade, just choose which level you want on the comparison page and go through the Paypal button checkout. Paypal then notifies me and I can approve up to 60 pictures [3 gallery pages] and add your name to the Artists ID list and provide you with an artist id that is designed to help get you into google searches.

Have a great day 🙂

ArtRave is evolving as a new resource for promoting decent Art worldwide~!

ArtRave: Ave Hurley Illustrations ~ Featured Artists Network
I have been learning how to advertise, make banners, do simple html, java etc. and as I do I make a blog or a forum that shows how to do it so others can be helped as well. It is not easy for most artists emerging online to show & sell their art. With so many huge POD’s sucking up all the profits & banner ad co’s charging so much per click, it is very costly to get known online ~ except when you learn how to do it yourself~!

Thats what I have been doing for the last 3 years & now share what I have been learning with other artists & crafters FREE. After all I am an artist first & foremost & looking to sell my own art.

Sharing my network with other artists, provides more choices for the viewers to be able to decide what they will to buy.

If my art isn’t what they want, perhaps they will want something one of my member artists has available.

I believe there is strength in numbers and the more artists that join my network to display & sell their art, the better it is for them & also for me, in the long run.

Viewers benefit as well, since we as artists are not having to spend a fortune on advertising & promotional costs, which save the viewers money if they choose to buy any of our arts, crafts or prints.

While I spend countless hours promoting my own art, it is just as easy to include others for variety. The only thing that might be considered any sort of drawback with seeing so much great original art from around the world is I then forget to promote my own work sometimes, lol especially as I find artists whose work o surpasses my level or scope, so that .I begin to focus on promoting that artist instead.

I love art & promoting good clean family friendly art~!
I now have over 283+ fellow artists & counting who are from all over the world and do amazing artwork~ showing & selling their art through my network !!

I want ArtRave to be the place where viewers of all ages can safely come & see fine quality art.

You will not find any form of nudity or unsuitable art on any of my networks, as all work is pre-approved to be family friendly. That’s my promise to viewers~!

Since I work hard creating ways to promote & advertise, for those artists who for whatever reasons do not have the time or enough skills to follow my lead, I can do it for them,for a nominal price to offset my own costs & continue building the ArtRave networks system.

While anyone can post their art into the Categories for sale, free, IF they wish to post into My ArtRaveGallery which includes transportable slideshows for viewing & posting anywhere on the net, that takes alot of bandwidth which I have to pay for.Because of this, all artists that have galleries on my site now have to pay for the usage.

Upgraded Members can have up to 60 pictures in Gallery & separate it topographically into 3 galleries for $3 a month. If they want to have up to 200 pictures they need to pay $7.95 per month. This is very nominal.

With currently less than 5,000 pictures on sight and having had over 30,000 unique visitors, ArtRave member artists already average more traffic than artists on larger sites like FineArtAmerica~!

The unique profile page for members has added features that enable html & javato help them to set it up as their own website within the ArtRave Networks, which can serve as a hub for all their online activities & include links to all their other websites , shops & auctions.

Believing in n the traffic generating, advertising power of cross promoting, I have also set up an Artists Directory of the most popular Art POD Sites online. If a member belongs to any of those sites, they can put in direct links to their stores, shops, auctions & blog sites.
This enables viewers to go to their other sites directly from ArtRave ~!

I am currently working on creating banner advertising sites that will be for the top 100 artists of each genre & category. Comparable banner advertising costs an average of $99 per year plus up to $.35 per click, which would be VERY costly and is beyond the budgets of most emerging artists and each banner can only serve 1 site. Artists also would have to supply their own banner or pay an other company to create one for them to use.

My alternative to this form of banner advertising is a renewable annual subscription of only $25 with FREE per clicks~ which could save thousands of dollars a year in advertising while accomplishing the promotions of the artists.

My Top 100 Ad Campaign is already taking shape too. & some members have already signed up. Each banner site can hold up to 100 banners for the category they are set up in. Once filled, no more applications are accepted unless a member drops out at the end of their subscription year. I will create a total of 101 sites to which the 101 will be a banner listing of each of the 100 planned category banner ad sites. Therse then will be placed on permlinks all over the internet and can potentially draw hundreds of thousands of viewers to each banner each year which can lead to more more sales for the artist while getting them known and established online..

To multiply the effectiveness, I also offer a landing page for the banner which I call “Boutiques” on ArtRave, where the artist can post all the links they have to everything they sell online~!!

This brings the viewer who clicks on the banner to everything the individual artist is doing and enables the viewer to make their purchases on any of the artist’s sites, such as Zazzle, Fine Art America or Redbubble to name a few..

ArtRave Boutique pages cost as little as $20/yr for a basic set up. [but I can customize them with added features as needed for a nominal fee].The artist can even have a simple button paypal checkout system installed enabling customers to pay them directly~!! Again the artist is now selling commission free, direct to their customer~!

Some artists can print their own art or have POD sites do it for them where they make an average of 10% for pictures sold.

On ArtRave I can do individual giclee printing for members, while paying full price for my materials, I can still keep prices competitive with the POD sites and yet give the member 30% of any sale of their work in print form.

Unlike most POD which make a member wait sometimes for years to receive their royalties which have to reach $25-50 before being paid out~ [ my own experience with Imagekind owing me $24.75 for over 3 yrs now~!]

I release their money to them in credits as low as $10 and will release smaller amounts on request, usually within 24 hours of the completed sale.

I work for the artists benefit first and foremost.I even can facilitate lower cost wholesale printing for members with with ‘Vista Prints’ through my account or referral , OR the member can join Vista through my link and set up their own account to do it themselves.

As for me personally, I paint land & seascapes in miniature, up to mural sizes~ life size & large as well as architectural illustrations in pen & inks, sign painting & make theatrical play sets on occassion. by commission.

I also do promotional advertising for other artists all over the net who upgrade their memberships!

All Members are invited to show & sell their art FREE in the ArtRave Categories, which is published all over the internet~!

There is even more happening on ArtRave, so much that it may even confuse some members initially, but if they begin to ask questions in the forums and in the comments sections of the turorials, I can address them and answer openly so others with the same questions can find the solutions.

So, Please Visit me at my network~ http://www.ArtRave.com~!

[but I can customize them with added features as needed for a nominal fee].The artist can even have a simple button paypal checkout system installed enabling customers to pay them directly~!! Again the artist is now selling commission free, direct to their customer~!

Some artists can print their own art or have POD sites do it for them where they make an average of 10% for pictures sold.

On ArtRave I can do individual giclee printing for members, while paying full price for my materials, I can still keep prices competitive with the POD sites and yet give the member 30% of any sale of their work in print form.

Unlike most POD which make a member wait sometimes for years to receive their royalties which have to reach $25-50 before being paid out~ [ my own experience with Imagekind owing me $24.75 for over 3 yrs now~!]

I release their money to them in credits as low as $10 and will release smaller amounts on request, usually within 24 hours of the completed sale.

I work for the artists benefit first and foremost.I even can facilitate lower cost wholesale printing for members with with ‘Vista Prints’ through my account or referral , OR the member can join Vista through my link and set up their own account to do it themselves.

As for me personally, I paint land & seascapes in miniature, up to mural sizes~ life size & large as well as architectural illustrations in pen & inks, sign painting & make theatrical play sets on occassion. by commission.

I also do promotional advertising for other artists all over the net who upgrade their memberships!

All Members are invited to show & sell their art FREE in the ArtRave Categories, which is published all over the internet~!

There is even more happening on ArtRave, so much that it may even confuse some members initially, but if they begin to ask questions in the forums and in the comments sections of the turorials, I can address them and answer openly so others with the same questions can find the solutions.

So, Please Visit me at my network~ http://www.ArtRave.com~!
