WHAT IS ARTTRACK.NL
Arttrtack.nl is a dissemination point (portal) for information about visual arts and culture in The Netherlands. In addition, to artist’s presentations, we also list addresses of galleries, museums, art-related businesses and (government) institutions. In this way, Arttrack.nl provides a good overview of the actual state of affairs regarding visual arts in The Netherlands.
Arttrack.nl is made for, but also by and with artists. The emphasis is on an optimal presentation of the artist. No advertisements are placed on the artist’s site, so no external businesses will be able to profit from your work or web traffic.
Part of an optimal presentation is also optimal visibility. Therefore, Arttrack.nl ensures that member artists can easily be found via the most important (inter)national search engines. Additionally, all artists who have a website with Arttrack.nl receive 40 free business cards showing their (web)address so that they can easily familiarize interested parties with their work. Arttrack.nl does not act as a middleman, so visitors establish contact directly with the artist via their website.
WHAT IS POSSIBLE AT ARTTRACK.NL
Your own Arttrack.nl website
For €75 you get an entirely self-designed website with the following pages: images (maximum 99), Curriculum Vitae (CV), artist’s statement and an information page with your address, agenda and links. You can modify this information as often as you wish. CV update on your own site? No problem. Add photos of your new work? Quickly done. Placing acknowledgements, (temporary) presentations and other modifications are easily done without specialized web design knowledge. The website can be maintained entirely from your web browser. Even placing images or making changes is simple and can be done from any random place in the world with an internet connection. Of course, this also applies to the text, the CV and the 40 businessess cards with your own web address data. A membership costs only €60 per year.
Information page with link to an existing website
Many artists already have a website, but don’t profit from the functionality of an international portal. For them, we provide an information page. On it can be placed links to another website, an email address as well as a logo, or an image and text. Unlimited updates are possible on this page, also. In this way it can be a welcome addition to an already existing site.
Everyone with a listing on Arttrack.nl has access to a personalized information page, so businesses and organizations can also update their data as often as they wish.
This service costs €10 per year for artists and €20 per year for businesses and institutions.
Free address listing
For those who don’t have a website, but want to be found via internet, there is a free address listing service. On here you can place your studio address and telephone numbers. This service is free of charge.
Your own design
Those who wish to have a website entirely of their own design would be right at home on Arttrack.nl, too. We would work in conjunction with you to “build” a site for you. This service is on an hourly-rate basis.
Arttrack.nl ensures that your site has a well-maintained and well-ordered appearance. Because all pages can also be viewed in English, Arttrack.nl is an international and often consulted reference source. Approximately 50% of all visitors come from outside The Netherlands (that means almost 300,000 people in the past year).
Findability on the internet
Due to the well thought-out and constructed technology of Arttrack.nl as a portal, all newly created pages are especially well placed and easy to find via the diverse (inter)national search engines.
DO IT YOURSELF OR HAVE IT DONE
An Arttrack.nl website is simple to maintain yourself. Replacing or adding images, updating an agenda or CV, changes of address--everything can be done by yourself without any specialized web design knowledge. But, for those who don’t want to or can’t do it themselves, Arttrack.nl can maintain the entire contents of the site for them.
Digitalizing and scanning
Images on the internet are in a digital format. A digital archive is handy for making your own quality prints. Arttrack.nl can digitize photos, negatives and slides for use on websites and printing your own documentation material. Expensive, hand-made photo reproductions become redundant.
