Sneak Peek at Vesica Galleries

Filed under: Upcoming Features — Tags: , , — Asif N @ 7:54 pm

The gallery feature for each individual Vesica user has been a long awaited feature. Ever since we went into general beta, we’ve received queries from artists and galleries alike about when this would go online, how hard it will be to use and what kind of marketing and transactional capability it will allow them to have. The "gallery" function is a very big step towards the future and better attraction of potential viewers and buyers, because there is an opportunity to view the works, in a combination of buy cheap articles and useful content, which we then attract on our site, so you can better familiarize yourself with the works, presented on the site.

I am glad to tell you that the Vesica Gallery feature is complete and is currently being tested. Since we’re not ready to go live with it yet, I figured it will be a good time to show you what the galleries look like and what you as a Vesica user can do with them. So, without further adue, here is a screenshot of the gallery homepage that each Vesica account holder, free or paid, can get.

The above screenshot should give you an idea of the scalability and functionality of all Vesica galleries. Each account comes with a dedicated URL which you can choose when you create a Vesica account. So, if you chose the word londonart, you can then have your gallery on http://londonart.vesica.ws. In additon, all pieces can be browsed by type and you can add a variety of other pages to your gallery – so you can do business on your terms. Each gallery also comes powered with a dedicated shopping bag.

You also get statistics for your gallery. You can see how many hits you get on a monthly basis in addition to seeing hits by piece – a useful statistic if you want to see how your copy is performing in terms of SEO, setting up which at the keyword and description level is also built into the gallery configurator.

There’s a whole lot more I could put down about the galleries – after all, I’ve built the architecture for them. But instead of writing a novel on it, I’ll simply leave you with a couple more screenshots and ask that you be just  a little more patient. When we launch the gallery feature, it will be worth it. Hundreds of small galleries and artists will be able to gain an online presence and sell their artwork online. You don’t want to miss this!
