Building your email list.
Filed under: Support Feature Email Tags: Email+List

You can review and manage all the email listings registered to your site. The email management feature is found under your "Member Site". Log in, click on the link "Build or Maintain information to Market your site" and look for "Add or update your mailing list information". Pay very close attention to the email address lettering. An email address is a tricky thing. Each address is a unique set of characters. If however, there is just one letter out of place, the email will not be delivered. What is even worse, it might go to someone you do not even know! So carefully write it down, and carefully enter it on your site. What does an email address look like? All email addresses have a @ sign in the middle. They do not have www. Usually they are written as: name@website.com For example, the webmaster of the MyArtClub.Com site has an email address of webmaster@myartclub.com To enter an email address on to your site First you must log in, then click on the link "Build or Maintain information to Market your site" and look for "Add or update your mailing list information". In the next screen, you will see a box showing who is already on your list. To the right of the box you see a space to put the email address just below the words "Enter Email address". Optionally, you can enter the person's name. If you have a lot of email addresses to enter, you can enter them in bulk. Click on the "Load Bulk email addresses" link. You can Bulk Load email addresses by entering them in the box displayed separated by ; (semi-colons) and clicking on the Bulk Add email addresses button. To enter the name, add it first with the email address between angle brackets < > For example: John Smith; J Smith; maggiesmith@hotmail.com Note the ; (semi-colon) at the end of each line except for the last one. When you click on the Bulk Add email addresses button, the list will be processed and your current mailing list will be displayed. You can click on the maintain your mailing list link to return to the first screen. You can delete one or more of the addresses on your list by clicking on the address (or holding down the Ctrl key while clicking on multiple addresses) and then clicking on the "delete email address(es)" button under the box. MyArtClub.Com attempts to keep the email list free from junk emails with a sign up screening however, your list may end up with junk emails that have gotten by our screening. We attempt to validate the email addresses whenever you send out a notice to your email list and will delete any addresses which fail the validation. You will notice an OK at the beginning of the email list. This indicates that the email at least passed the validation list. It may still be a junk email address. When you have added a few names to your mailing list, you can send them a notice about your art or upcoming shows. Just reload one of your pictures on your site. Perhaps one you are showing. (Or replace one picture with a new one - it is your choice). Then use the "Notify Your Fans" and add your message about your show; the resulting email will have a web link to the address of your picture attached to your note, to bring visitors to your site.

Tooting your own horn
Filed under: Images Email Feature Tags: Email+List

In a previous blog Building your email list we discussed how to create and maintain your email list. Also discussed on our previous blog Loading your art images on the web we discussed how to properly size your images for loading on your web site. In this blog, we discuss how to bring the two events together. When you have loaded your image to your website, we present you with the opportunity to send out an email to your email list touting your latest accomplishments. By clicking on the link presented, you can send out an predefined email with links back to your site as well as to the image you just loaded. You can also add your own message to the email inviting folks to view your image or using it as a marketing email to invite folks to your latest exhibition or an art show, perhaps referencing the art image as one of the pictures that will be included at the event. 'Content is King' they say on the Internet, so be sure to keep your site up to date. Go through your pages to remove out of date content. Why not display some of your more recent art? Will you be showing soon? Use the MyArtClub.Com email tool to send your fans a link to your latest works and invite them to your show. Selling art cards for Christmas? Send an image to your email list with your order information. Create some interest with your clients! This article was first published in the My Art Newsletter #8 read more ...

Creating active links on any artist website
Filed under: Utility Email Support Feature Tags: HTML Instruction

The great thing about having a website is you can build in links to anything. MyArtClub.com websites design enables artists and art groups to place links anywhere there is a text box. This is done using HTML code. Please refer to our earlier blog on the many uses of HTML codes, My text all runs together. Whats with that? This blog focuses on helping you make your links active. The way many artists provide a referring web address on their sites is to write out the website or email address. While this is literally showing the link, say like www.MyArtClub.Com, it does not make it easy for the reader to activate the page by clicking on the words, like this version does: www.MyArtClub.Com . To bring the words to life, here is what you do: Link to other sites , use the following html format: Click Here For My Other Site where you substitute your particular web address for "http://members.yahoo.com/myothersite"and where you substitute what you want to be clicked on for Click Here for My Other Site Works for emails too! To create an active link that opens an email addressed to your email address, use the following html format: myemailaddress@gmail.com where you substitute your email address twice in the above, for myemailaddress@gmail.com Note You MUST use the exact symbols and (from experience!) test every time you add a new link to make sure it works! read more ...
