Fine Art America is the world's most powerful sales and marketing tool for photographers and visual artists.
Simply open an account, upload your images, set your prices for all our available products, and you're instantly in business! FAA provides you with an e-commerce website, fulfills your orders for you, and sends you your profits each month.
This is, by far, the most powerful feature released to date...
Effective immediately, all POD members now get their very own websites for promoting and selling their artwork.
I recently purchased the domain name "artistwebsites.com". If you take the URL for your FAA profile page and replace "fineartamerica.com" with "artistwebsites.com"... you'll be on your very own website!
Visitors to your website can purchase prints of your artwork with custom framing and matting (just like they do on FAA)... without ever leaving your site!
I could go on and on... but I'll end with this:
You've now got the power of FAA all to yourself. You've got the FAA search engine... FAA image rendering... FAA order fulfillment... FAA search engine optimization... FAA events calendar... etc... all dedicated to you and your artwork.
Best of all - your website is included at no extra charge to all POD members.
If you're a POD member, please give your new site a try and post your feedback here. Your login name and password are the same as what you use on FAA.
This is only the beginning. Like everything else on FAA, these sites will continue to get better and better (i.e. more features, more customizations, etc.)
That is the most wonderful news, especially for sorts like me that have a www address connected directly to FAA (no other site of my own) and now I can have my own site courtesy this facility, when I join POD and when I work out how to set up, etc. THANK YOU, Brian. Also, thanks for the new home page that appears when I log in: all so sensible, legible, usable: kudos again. Sincerely, Vivian
With these new websites, I'm trying to solve all of the problems that make it difficult for artists to sell online.
Most artists do not have their own websites... or if you do, you face the following problems:
1. It can be very difficult to sell prints via your own site... not anymore.
2. It can be very time consuming trying to optimize your website for high rankings in Google... not anymore.
3. When you post new artwork on your website, the only people who know about it are the 10 - 20 people who visit your site each day. Not anymore... now the entire FAA community and our 3+ million monthly visitors will know about it.
4. It can be very difficult to display your artwork in various configurations (i.e. different frames, stretched canvases, greeting cards, etc.)... not anymore.
5. It can be very difficult to design an internal search engine that finds your artwork quickly and easily... not anymore.
In order to be successful online, you need a website that's very user-friendly, visually-appealing, and makes it easy for visitors to make a purchase. That's exactly what these new websites are designed to do.
I'm committed to making these websites the most powerful, affordable artist websites anywhere on the internet. They're only going to get better from here.

Hello fellow artists,
I am brand new here and, for the most part, have found my way around. However, I cannot, for the life of me, find where I can customize my new page. It says that I can change the header graphic, header font, etc. But where do I do this? I need some input please. Thank you. Micki
Thank you Christi - that is what I did but those buttons aren't showing up there. Is it because I only just became a Premium member? Does it take awhile for those buttons to show up perhaps? I wonder why.
I hate to sound stupid... but that's never stopped me before.
I don't understand the difference between this and the basic artist profile and account that exists on the main site. Other than adding a special header, it seems to have the same features as the profile.
