  • 9. 2013 Australian smartphone owners • 67% have used their smartphones every day in the past 7 days • 90% of smartphone users have looked for local information • 86% have taken action as a result • 56% Look for local information at least once a week Source: Ourmobileplanet.com You may read the full study on: http://think.withgoogle.com/mobileplanet/en/downloads/ (see Australia) (Some of the many reasons why you should have a responsive website.) satyamorrison.com
  • 10. Some Do's and Don’ts • Navigation and content must be straightforward and user friendly • Keep your text short and sweet • Don't have too many plug-ins, flash presentation, buttons and other unecessary things that will slow down and crash your website. • Remember: the focus is on you and your artworks • Provide a short explanation or story behind your artworks • Avoid too many third-party advertisements, non-related goods (Google Adsense can be used to generate income but be careful to not make your site look too all over the place) • Provide sufficient contact information • Provide clear info on where and how buyers can purchase your pieces • Always optimise your images otherwise pages take a long time to load and you will lose your audience satyamorrison.com
  • 11. • If you are not represented by any gallery, provide a price for each piece on your site • Be able to justify as to why each piece is different from the other • Offer a variety of price ranges • Avoid showing too much "sold" art. This will make the buyers think that the best ones are already sold. Instead show it in a "Past Works" section • "Curate" your own artworks.
