The photographic art marketplace YourArtGallery.com (YAG) is rolling out a new set of marketing tools to help photographers profit from their prints.
Among the new tools is a downloadable calendar of promotional tips and social media templates to help photographers spread the word. A regular email update with advice on selling printed artwork is also in the works.
YAG is also rolling out a promotion for the holiday selling season that will include “YAGSWAG” (t-shirts and such) and wrapping paper with each order.
According to co-founder Heather Griffin , YAG will soon add 17 new print sizes artists can sell and new ways to organize the images in their personal gallery.
Your Art Gallery allows photographers to sell prints online. Photographers can set their own prices and keep 90 percent of the fee–the cost of production and shipping are tacked on after the fact. Photographers can also choose what sizes they want to sell and the finishes. Prints are fulfilled through Duggal Visual Solutions, whose CEO, Michael Duggal, is one of three founders of YAG.
There are three membership tiers that allow photographers to sell 10, 25 or 100 pieces of art for free, $5/month or $10/month, respectively.
Griffin says YAG has over 3,435 active artists from 100 different countries with a library of over 10,000 images for sale.
