Solo Arte

Brick-and-mortar generation business owners with no knowledge of marketing forced to adapt quickly to a new industry trend – exhibit and sell art online

Website case
studies

Their website is their new art gallery

The redesigned website properly showcases the art, providing lots of interesting information and value for website visitors. The difference between the experience on the new site compared to the old is night and day – as evidenced in the average time spent by users before and after the relaunch.

Overall problems they were facing before working with us

  • 1.

    A brochure website with no online shop, SEO, that didn’t effectively showcase the work of the artists they represent
  • 2.

    With no implementation of SEO, the website failed to attract enough new monthly visitors
  • 3.

    Slow to adapt to the urgent need to sell online due to COVID restrictions on auctions and galleries, or studios. Their competitors in Ireland took advantage with effective websites and already experienced a huge surge in sales because of this.
  • 4.

    No knowledge of marketing, or how to become visible online in target markets (USA, China and Europe)

The art industry is going online

For some art dealers, artists, galleries and auctioneers, the transition to selling art online is already complete. Aware of their competition is getting ahead, Solo Arte is finally focusing on online marketing. The owners are from an older generation, so our step-by-step process to competing online makes it perfectly clear to Pat and Claire just what has to be done – and how.
