Step-By-Step Instructions

Mail-in form (Part II)
Why create an Artist Studio website?
  • Lower cost than traditional web development. (see explanations below)
  • Fast deployment! Your website can be fully functional in a matter of days, not months.
  • Your website will share the traffic of the MesArt site, as well as being accessible by its own domain name.
  • Your website will have an integrated e-commerce capability from day one.
How does the Artist Studio save you money compared to traditional web development:
  • You don't have to hire a graphic designer and a web developer to create images and HTML for your website.
  • You don't need to hire programmers to create online ordering, guest books and many other features.
  • You manage the relevant content of your site (career descriptions, artwork images and prices) from your MesArt account, instead of having to pay a web developer extra money to make HTML changes.
 Notes:
E-commerce
E-Commerce capability allows you to sell your artwork on the Internet. In case of a sale, we will handle credit card payments for you. A 15% commission is taken on art sold through our website. No commission will be taken if the buyer purchases directly from you.
Accepted cards: Visa, Master Card, American Express.
Setup options:
Self-setup (through Web): (1) Create your account by clicking on the Sign up... button. (2) Prepare and upload pictures, then (3) let us know that you want your account to be activated. (Note: before your account is activated, your artwork is visible only from your own computer). Using our unique MesArt management tools, you can at any time arrange images in your portfolio, set pricing, manage your biography, artwork descriptions, and more.
Mail-in: Send your slides/photographs, personal photo and necessary texts such as biography, artwork descriptions with a SASE (self-addressed stamped envelope) to our address. We will digitize (scan) and prepare your images for the Web and create and set up your account. Our address:
MesArt
P.O. Box 31804
San Francisco, CA 94131-0804
Make sure to include check for appropriate sum with your mail-in setup. We charge $3 per image/slide/photo/text page.
Your Domain Name

If you own a domain name, we can host it at your account. Your web space will be accessibe by a personalized URL in the form of
http://www.<YOURDOMAIN>.com

This will make your account look like a stand-alone website and it will be easier to remember. You will be able to submit independently to search engines and get listed in major directories like Yahoo! At the same time, your Artist Gallery will still be part of MesArt and will be accessible from our MesArt pages, Search and Artist Directory.

Personalized URL
Your web space will be accessible by a personalized URL in the form of http://www.mesart.com/<YOURNAME>
For example, if your username is jsmith, your art will be accessible at http://www.mesart.com/jsmith
If you have a domain name (see above), your art will also be accessible at
http://www.<YOURDOMAIN>.com
This allows you to put this URL on your promotional materials, such as business cards and exhibition catalogs, in addition to providing visitors a direct access to your space.
Can be Featured
The MesArt staff periodically selects artists to be featured on its Homepage. Being featured on the Homepage can increase the exposure of your MesArt website.
Guest Book

Named Series
This feature allows you to assign names to your account pages. Therefore your artwork collection can be categorized into Named Series (For Example: "The Blue Period," "Portraits," "Modern Still Life," "Collages of the 90's"), not just numbered pages.
Artist Directory Entry
MesArt maintains an Artist Directory which is designed to help visitors view artists by name.
Link to Own Website
If you already have a website, you will be able to link from your MesArt web space to your website. This may increase your website's exposure, since people visiting MesArt will be able to proceed to your website.
Link to Launch E-mail
Users will be able to contact you directly through this optional e-mail link. This link automatically launches your visitor's e-mail program and puts your address in the window.
Contact Information
You can choose to show your Contact Information on MesArt, so that buyers will be able to contact you directly.
Visitor Statistics
Comprehensive website statistics show you how visitors find your site and go about it. You have daily traffic numbers, traffic sources, your most visited pages, geography of your visitors, user conversion rates, bounce rates, average time on site, and more.

Remember, if you are not satisfied with your new MesArt account for any reason within 30 days you will be receiving a full refund.


 
We wish all of you happiness and success!
