Hopes for the blog are high. Our international team have spent the last four months talking and planning, weighing up the merits and demerits of a whole raft of things we know our collectors and uploading artists, in particular, will love. I must be careful not to spill the beans. Suffice to say that month-on-month, the offer of ArtMarketDirect.com continues to improve, develop and focus more on the original inspiration beyond the project. The original question:
“How do we make ArtMarketDirect.com the best option you have?” Sometimes this question seemed like an insurmountable giant leap. In truth, it is not. It is a vast constellation of small steps, small changes until in a moment of magic; the energy came.
At the same time, let’s keep it real. This is only a blog, but we have plans and ideas which include:
- Editors choice pieces of artwork from the market will be promoted
- Events will be shared
- Directory entries
- Some outreach to highlight the work of folk who strike a chord with us
- Some editorial from time to time if we think we can give you something interesting
- Product reviews
- Collectors questions
- Announcements about the site
- Maybe a bit of lifestyle
- Some travel info (especially if that involves a map)
This is where you come in too, where we are constantly looking for your contribution. We like hearing from you and you can comment in this blog!!
You may not know but we are proud that so far, 100% of all suggestions from you have been explored, costs analyzed, played out on our test site and where there is a success, we have implemented those ideas; all based on your needs.
Each year we also conduct a more formal survey looking for your opinions about how we can improve. Again with 100% action.
Finally, we analyse the wider market to see what the landscape looks like today. We have always said that we are not interested in competition. The global art market is big enough for us all to do well and we wish everyone involved, only the very best of success.
So join me from time to time, on this as yet unplanned journey. Keep in touch and above all, lets have some fun!
