Advantages of FASO ~ What a FASO Website Will Do for You

You’ve worked hard to create your art. Now you need to present it in the best way online.

FASO websites show your art to the world professionally and are "mobile-responsive" - they look great and function well on desktop monitors and mobile devices alike.

Our sites are full-featured, stand-alone websites, not simply a "portfolio." Combine our templates and color palettes for over 2000 possible design combinations.

To fully market your art online, you need a website, host, domain name, email provider, email newsletter, social media integration, perhaps a blog...

FASO streamlines your life because we offer all of those things and more! 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?

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).
