Doug Marlowe Helps Harness The Power Of Technology For Individuals And Businesses, With A Specialty Niche For Artists. “teachITnow” Alleviates Frustration And Confusion

Doug Marlowe describes himself as “a curious sort”. His passion with art began at age 10, with the first roll of film he developed. That led him to the Rochester Institute of Technology with a degree in Photo Science and Engineering. He pioneered many of the processes used to go from the camera to the computer and from the computer to the printing press. Doug moved to telecommunications and was a “midwife” at the birth of the public Internet. Doug’s communication skills led him to decades of engineering project management and workplace education. Who has not dealt with some type of  technology issue?  Through teachITnow,Inc., Doug can help individuals, groups, and businesses corral their technology dysfunction and move forward with a sense of confidence toward success.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Could   you   benefit   from   Technotherapy?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

With the rapid development of the Internet, computers, digital cameras, and cell phones, Doug was driven to educate those who are confused and frustrated with these technologies; especially artists, whose existence revolves around communications.

 

 

 

I don’t know if anyone else – no matter how creative she might ”think” she is – doesn’t arrive at the Wall of Exasperation! “What am I missing? I need a new set of eyes!” That’s how I felt when I called Doug to walk me through some various social media platforms for my very busy real estate career. Two days later, I took all my questions, my media campaigns, branding questions and sat with my ever patient brain trust named Doug Marlowe. Whether its formatting local or global campaigns or analyzing where the “new frontier” of promotion might be, I thank Doug for opening some areas to explore.

Doug’s company, teachITnow, Inc. has been helping the “bewildered and confused” harness the power of their technology since 2008. 

 

 

 

Doug Marlowe has been my IT guy for ten years. His creative and patient teaching style has enabled me to feel confident in my ability to control the technologies I need to create my art. I trust Doug implicitly with many aspects of my gallery’s operations, social media, and marketing. I recommend Doug highly.

I was in desperate need of revising my web site in time for my SOLO show and knew it needed professional help. My anxieties were dashed within days and my web site looks great at a reasonable cost.  I will continue to call on Doug for help with marketing on social media.  He was a pleasure to work with.  I highly recommend Doug!

How Online Art Galleries Can Help You Market Your Artwork

By John R. Math

In the last 5 years online art galleries have become a popular means for artists to market and sell their art. If an artist is not taking advantage of this platform they are at a very distinct disadvantage in terms of marketing and selling their art. There are several types of online galleries and using them has numerous benefits for the artist.

 

Print on Demand Online Art Galleries:

These type of galleries provide a profile page followed by gallery pages for the artist’s artworks. (They may or may not charge an administrative fee). The gallery acts as a “go between” for the buyer and the artist. They print and ship the artist’s work for the purchaser, which is how the gallery makes their money.

 

Online Art Galleries that Market and Sell Art:

This type of gallery sells the artist’s art and collects a percentage of each sale (much like a brick and mortar gallery when they sell an artist’s artwork). They usually provide the artist with a profile, a storefront and the means to charge and collect from the buyer.
Hopefully, these online art galleries do a lot of marketing and promotion to bring traffic to their website in order to help sell the artist’s art.

 

Online Art Competition Galleries:

For an artist’s work to appear on these sites, the artist will go through a judging or a competition process. The selection of the art is the result of a themed art competition. Online art galleries (in any form) provide artists with very low costs and wide-ranging exhibition opportunities that were not available in the past.  “Brick and Mortar” art galleries have built-in overhead and expenses that make them less able to compete with online art galleries regarding artist entry fees and exhibition costs.

Online galleries offer ease of submitting and managing electronic files versus physically shipping entire works. Using online galleries is both a time-saving and cost-effective alternative for the artist. Matting and framing, shipping, and storing are no longer issues.
The Internet offers broad international exposure to artists who compete, win, and exhibit their artwork. This exposure can be tapped into by both “brick and mortar” and online galleries. It is critical for any gallery that an artist partners with, is to make full use of available marketing and promotional opportunities.

 

What are the advantages and benefits for an artist to enter and compete in an online art competition? The following are the top benefits for an artist when entering online art contests:

• Ease of Entering/Posting Art
• Cost of Entering/ Membership
• Online Promotion & Marketing
• Low Administrative Costs
• Unequalled Exposure for the Artist

 

Choosing the Right Online Gallery:

When selecting an online art gallery, be sure to ask about their overall marketing program. Online galleries tend to have digital marketing expertise as their entire world is electronic, but not all galleries are the same.

As an artist, you want broad and quality coverage for your work.

What is your desired market?

While the whole world is available to you, partnering with an online art gallery that caters to those who like your art is essential.

Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery conducts monthly themed online art competitions and art exhibitions for new and emerging artists on a worldwide basis. It is the Gallery’s intention to help today’s artists to successfully market their art to a worldwide audience.
