“Being good in business is the most fascinating kind of art.Making money is art and good business is the best art.” – Andy Warhol
Its a fact, online galleries are good for today’s art business.
Worldwide there are more than two hundred worldwide online galleries with an influence that now plays a significant role in the success for any artist or art collector. Christie’s auction house and Costco recently announced plans to sell thousands of Warhol artworks online.
Buyers often use a new return policy that allows them to evaluate the art and return it if not satisfied.
The Art Marketing Agency unveiled several online art gallery marketing innovations to help meet the challenges in today’s art market. The agency will “post” and categorize artworks and photos to the top performing online galleries. The agency may even set up a salon or website and provide valuable marketing tips and strategies!
In the past, visual artists and photographers have invested their valuable time and money attempting to find the “right” online galleries to sell their work without much success. Museums and brick and mortar galleries have been slow to embrace the Internet and social media market at their expense.
“Online galleries is the ideal medium to enable art buyers and collectors see artwork worldwide twenty four hour a day,” observed Tuck Tucker, Visual Art’s Marketing Director.
The new service is designed to match artwork to the best performing online gallery and its buyers. The online gallery-matching services enable artists to optimize their marketing and efficiently reach the best art buyers at online galleries around the world. Clients can now successfully showcase their art and connect to art buyers.
A recent report from IBISWorld estimates that the online art sales industry in the U.S. was worth about $ 287.5 million in 2011. This figure includes the sale of original or limited-edition artwork through online galleries, online auctions, online art fairs, and online art dealing and trading. The sales figures included data from 716 businesses and covered the sale of paintings, drawings, sculpture, photographs and other media.
According to IBIS World analysts, the market for online art sales has been growing in line with strong demand from overseas markets and increasing access to Internet-based retail outlets.
The growth in art sales through e-commerce and online auctions is expected to continue through 2016, fueled by global growth in consumer spending and increased access through more broadband connections.Mobile apps are anticipated to provide further room for innovation in online art sales.
