Every week, we have had a contest hosted here at Artfire LInk. The winner of the contest gets a free month of fees at Artfire.com up to $13.00. This is completely sponsored by My Father’s Gifts from Artfire. The very last week of each month is reserved for our semi finalists from the first weeks in the month to go head to head. The Collection most voted upon wins.
However, we realized that sharing from our website here can be challenging between several devices. Some older ipads don’t see the poll widget and some do. SO, Next week, we will be doing things a bit different. instead of a poll, we will be counting comments under each collection at Artfire.com. Thus creating more traffic to Artfire, to our shops and hopefully, more sales. It’s a whole lot easier for you to share the collections from the collection page at Artfire, to your social media pages like Google +, Facebook and Twitter this way too.
The collection with the most comments, wins that particular week. There is only one issue. Votes per week, per collection submission.
SO, collections submitted will have to be fresh and within a 7 day timeframe and not 30 day timeframe. This will offer new collections with fresh content. The finalists will also have to submit a fresh collection as well for the finalist competition.
We know this may take a little extra effort, but it will also create more traffic to our main site, Artfire.com as well as teach you great collection creation techniques. Make sure your item images are great! Dark and blurry images for items for sale will not make a good collection component. Use Picasa for super easy adjusting on the first image in your listings for white balance, blur and light balance quality. A higher pixel of images the better..recommend 1000 pixels or better.
You can find tutorials on how to use Picasa in our Tutorials at our YouTube Channel.
