Advantages of FASO ~ What a FASO Website will do for You

You’ve worked hard to create your art. Now you need to decide how best to present it on the web.

A FASO Artist Website will display your art to the world professionally and will display properly on Desktop monitors and Mobile devices.

FASO sites are full-featured, stand-alone web sites, not simply a "portfolio." Combine our artist website templates and color palettes for over 2165 beautiful design combinations.

To fully market your art online, you need a website and web host, a domain name, a blog, an email provider, email newsletter software, social media integration, and more…..

FASO simplies your life because we are all of those things! You'll only have one account to deal with, and, when you need help, you have only one company to contact. How simple is that?

Alt tags

Alt tags (short for alternate) provide a text alternative to an image.

Search engine crawlers use alt tags to decipher what an image is or what it is representing.

Our software creates alt tags for all your art images during the upload process. The 'alt tags' contain the image title, your name, the medium and the size of your pieces (taken from the info you input).

They pop up when you hover over an image.

You will not find an 'Edit' option for these alt tags. Our database is designed to include these tags automatically in the code.

For more info about alt tags, see this FAQ:
Image Alt Tags

Buy Now buttons are automated on all artwork images. Simply attach your paypal account. Visitors will stay on your site during the shopping process and only switch to paypal's site after they have made all their selections and are ready to pay.
