Fine Art Connoisseur 2020 Marketing Guide

“Whenever my work appears in an ad on, traffic to my website doesn’t just jump; it leaps! What is particularly encouraging is that the people who come to my website through Fine Art Connoisseur are most likely collectors and art galleries, as well as other artists.”— Katherine Galbraith

“I want my advertising plan to keep a long-range focus. Regularly scheduled magazine and banner ads have not only introduced me to a broad audience and provided repeated visibility, but working with the Fine Art Connoisseur marketing team has resulted in very positive exposure at significant art events and to motivated buyers.”— Jason Drake
