Welcome to the discussion area. There are some helpful topics listed on the Need Help Start Here tab located on top of the main forums.

Please take a look as the rules to the discussions are located there also.

You will find a Search feature which also contains links to many previously answered questions you may have.

Best of luck to you!

Put marketing in the search here in the discussions and you will find many hundreds of threads devoted to that very subject

As an artist, half of the work is marketing yourself.

Here are some good links to discussions in our forum and elsewhere about marketing your work

Be sure to stay active on Fine Art America: join discussion, contests, etc.

We have an entire Marketing section for you to utilise to help sell your work. Try using those tools to help you.

But the best place to start is telling your friends and family.

Search takes into consideration many different factors when determining the sort order of the images.

It takes into consideration:

1. the relevance of your image keywords
2. the number of times an image has been sold
3. the number of times an image has been favourited
4. the number of times an image has been commented on (by others. Your own comments on your work do NOT count)
5. how long an image has been on the site
6. the number of times an image has been featured in a group
etc...

There are more than 25 different criteria that the search engine evaluates.

Hope this helps

 

Contact Support is here http://fineartamerica.com/contactus.html You will need Technical Support for help starting out

We do not do Technical Support by telephone

Everything you need are two links when you log in.

They appear in the top middle of the page. One is your name. That leads you directly to your profile.

The second link you need is your Behind the Scenes link, situated right next to the name link.

Behind the Scenes are all the tools you need to work with on the site. Everything you need is in there.

I strongly suggest that you spend a good half hour, playing around in your Behind the Scenes, familiarising yourself with the layout and what things are when opened.

I know this helped when I first joined.

A very warm welcome Max.

Jeffrey has given you some great links which are also helping me.

Some great advice from Elizabeth also.

I am still trying to find my way around and have made lots of mistakes and now I am beginning to learn from them. Just too bust this weekend to sort things out.

I have found people to be very friendly and helpful. Good luck and have fun.

Welcome to FAA, Max! You can get plenty of help right here in the forums. So many successful artists are willing to share their hard earned advice with you.
