Artful Alerts explained; increase your followers
"MyInformedCollector" Artful Alerts was first rolled out on our BoldBrush Painting Competition.
We now offer "MyInformedCollector" Artful Alerts on all 3rd generation templates (see screenshots below).
This exciting feature allows a collector to sign up to follow (via email) any FASO artist and get automated alerts when that artist posts new artwork.
|NOTE: When an artist uploads new art images in a batch upload (uploading multiple images in one fell swoop), only one New Art Alerts email is sent to the collector. The New Art Alerts email includes all of the images that were uploaded in that day.|
Here's a screenshot of what the button looks like on a BoldBrush contest entry.
Get New Art Alerts are automatic newsletters that are sent every time you post (upload) new art to your website. They work great especially if you post new art regularly, since they don't require the time and effort of more traditional newsletters.
NOTE: See this FAQ if you are using this feature but need to upload art that you don't want an alert sent out about:
How to Prevent Artwork Uploads from Sending New Art Alerts to Your Followers
You will see the Get New Art Alerts icon (small closed-envelope) at the top or bottom of your website, depending upon your chosen template.
When you hover over the icon, this Help Info pops up:
(...using Jennifer McChristian for the following examples)
1. Example of a report an artist gets of all the people who clicked "Like this Artwork" on a particular artwork from the Get New Art Alert email, along with their email address and comments.
This report is aggregated and sent daily.
2. Example of a "Purchase Inquiry".
If a user makes a purchase inquiry, it is sent to the artist immediately, along with the user's email address and question, which is usually, "what's the price?" or "Is it available?"
Art Alert emails are sent by FASO using our "no reply" email address. The "no reply" email address doesn't accept incoming email and thus it won't notify the artist in any way.
If someone replies to an Art Alert email, you will not receive the reply.
