Introducing Bounce Site!

ArtWanted.com has created a new sister website to solve a challenge we have seen with our creative members who use multiple websites to promote their work.

The new website is called Bounce Site, and here's why we created it...

THE PROBLEM:

    Most artists/photographers have multiple websites to showcase their work on, because each website offers different features and audience. Between your personal website, your social media websites, your community portfolios (like ArtWanted) and your product store websites, you have many places to see your artwork. These websites are normally very disconnected and rarely does a fan know of each of them.

    It's challenging, tacky and confusing to list a handful of websites on your business card, voice mail or e-mail signature when promoting your work. Also, many apps/websites (like Instagram) only allow you to link to ONE website, which leaves all your other websites unknown to your followers. What can an artist do?

THE SOLUTION:

    You need a single website that promotes and links to ALL of the websites that feature your artwork. A website URL that is easy to remember and simple to share with others. A website that is simple to update and to add/remove links on. A website that is free for life and is always updated with the latest place to see your artwork. This solution has just been created and we want you to participate.
    The solution is Bounce Site!

This new web site helps creative people link all of their various websites and social media pages together. This will improve fan experience and lead to more traffic and potential art sales. This new website is also free to all ArtWanted members!

Click the link below to learn more about Bounce Site or sign-up to get your own personal Bounce Site for free. As an ArtWanted member, we will automatically import your ArtWanted portfolio and official website link when you create your Bounce Site.

Brilliant idea! Impressive general design, site cover, functions and options!

Being impressed like that and trying to create an account right now, I made something wrong, clicked twice on the same wrong link, or something... and it doesn't work for me any more now. It shows 3 wrong links in my account, no link is working, when I try to use or delete them, under the sign "manage links" I see blanc page. Hope all that is the inevitable result of my computer stupidity;or temporary bugs, which are also imevitable on the first stage.

I am a bit more worried also by another fact - too many sites with the word BOUNCE in the Net. My google search failed to find our site, but found quite a namber of similar ones. One of them even has absolutely identical name and link: bouncesite.com...

Otherwise I am really happy to see your creative activity. I believe in your bright ideas and in your final great success. Seriously. Good luck!

Yury, thanks for creating a new account with Bounce Site, we are glad you like it.

It looks like when you added your links they were not formatted correctly, so they created errors. We have logged into your account and fixed these issues for you.

The site is brand new, so it will not be indexed by Google yet. This will come in time, as the site gets used more and more people are linking to their own Bounce Sites. BounceSite.com is owned by us, so that is not another company, it's us.

Let us know if you have any other questions or issues.

WOW! It works now perfectly. Hope it is not a great trouble, but a useful action - to find bugs and to fix everything from the very beginning. It is night here in Russia now, so I'll continue to play with this new toy and tool tomorrow. Thanks once more for this nice present to us and for your excellent job. Good night!

Tried to add one more link. The result is the same - blanc page instead of the working link. I understand that I do simething wrong, but what exactly? Coild you suppose and tell me, please?

Yuri -

There are two problems that can happen with a link and the thumbnail creation: 1) The link is incorrect/invalid 2) There was a problem creating the screen shot of the website.

If the issue is #1, then the link just needs to be corrected. This is what we did with your first few links, they were not correct.

The second issue was happening on the new website you added, they didn't allow for automated screen shots using our software. We have fixed this as well manually for you, so you should be fine now. Let us know if you have any other questions or issues.

I found the site easy to use. This was such a great idea! It is like a search engine for an individual. I am sure fans and customers are going to find this more visually pleasing to use, than just a list of links on our homepage. Thank you!
