How to increase public traffic to artist websites?
In the present generation, making an online presence on the web and becoming an active member of social networking sites to expose your talents and skills has become inevitable, neglecting the disadvantages of technology. It has emerged as a big boon to the upcoming artists, particularily, who considers the online platform as a mean to showcase their art works and introduce them to the open public. Equally important it is to update the contents of the artist’s website to position themselves in the first page of the search engine page results.
What most of the art-lovers expect from an artist website is “simplicity”. Whatever is the art work or the website design, keeping it simple, straightforward and ensuring that it is a non nonsense website must be the foremost thing to be kept in mind before you create the artist website.
“The must have’s in an artist website”
• Do not torture the online visitors by creating cheap websites
The bonus that you get from free web hosting services and domain registration is the unwanted advertisements and the graphics that appears in almost four corners of your website. The ultimate result is that the public gets offended with the site and never thinking of visiting the website on “second thoughts”.Moreover, it shows the attitude of the artists towards their work and the importance that they give to their skills.
• Develop platform-independent websites
The responsibility of a good web designer is to create a website that works same on the different web browsers; otherwise the art works would be displayed in different ways in different platforms and this creates a bad impression on other’s mind.
• Advertising related to the website
Advertisements can surely gain you a penny, but the website must feature pay-per clicks ads which has some co-relation with the art world and must not distract the visitors in any ways; otherwise your talent will lie under the black shadows.
• Social networking feature
Online businesses succeed today mainly because of the social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter etc.Each “like” and “comment” is a valuable turn for them and the public extends their support in promoting the business, unknowingly.
This same strategy is applicable in designing websites for artists. Artist’s gets popular and renowned with the encouragement of the people and with advanced technology, the art works gets maximum exposure through the “social networking feature”. So you must keep in mind that links to the most popular sites must be kept in your website.
• Display the contents from the viewer’s prospect
The website not only show casts the exquisite art works, but the whole portfolio of the artist. The designing work must be technically good but not so much advanced that it becomes difficult for the viewers to understand what actually the content means. So the website work must be thought from the viewer’s prospect.
• Avoid the “logging-in credential factors”
The real success mantra of the artist’s website is the measure of the people traffic towards it; that means you must avoid all the features which distracts the public attention. Registration processes or logging-in credentials falls under this category and unless it is an online art works shopping website, must be excluded from the website.
