In order to make it easy to advertise your promotion on Facebook and Twitter, there are links to both of those websites at the top of your promotional page. Just click on those links, and an announcement will instantly appear on your Facebook wall and Twitter feed. Your friends and family can also click on the links to help spread the word.
In order to alert IP visitors about your promotion, your promotional print will appear on a special page of our search engine:
This page only shows active promotions. If you've ever felt "lost in the crowd" on IP, this is a great way to stand out. Each IP member can only have three promotions running at any given time, and as a result, the number of images that appear on this special page of the search engine will be quite limited.
For example, if you run a promotion for one of your images which depicts the New York skyline, it will probably be the only image on that particular search engine page...
... even though there are hundreds of New York skyline images on IP:
Please note - there may be a delay of up to three hours between when you launch your promotion and when it appears in our search engine. Don't worry - it will show up.
The whole purpose of these limited time promotions is to allow you to offer your artwork for sale at a discounted price... increase your visibility on IP... add a sense of excitement to the buying process... give you a great reason to promote yourself to your friends, family, art collectors, and online friends... and, hopefully, increase your sales!
To get started, look for the new icon on your behind the scenes page which says "Limited Time Promotions".

To get started, just click on the "Discount Codes" icon from your "Behind the Scenes" page.

Each member of Instaprints.com now has the ability to create customized HTML e-mails which you can send to your friends, family, art colllectors, business acquaintances, and more!
What is a customizable HTML e-mail?
It's a beautiful e-mail with graphics - just like the ones that you receive from Amazon.com, HomeDepot.com, and other retailers.
What is customizable about it?
Absolutely everything! You can include your images from Instaprints... you can include your headshot... you can include links to other websites... you can include images from other websites... and more! Best of all, you don't need any HTML experience in order to put together a beautiful e-mail.
Who can I e-mail it to?
You can upload up to 10,000 e-mail addresses to Instaprints.com and then e-mail all of them directly from our site in a matter of seconds. Each person on your list will receive a personalized e-mail (i.e. not a bulk carbon copy), and each e-mail is sent from your personal e-mail address (e.g. email@example.com) - yes, we can really do that!
Why would I want to send out a bunch of beautiful e-mails?
Beautiful artwork deserves beautiful e-mails! There is simply no better way to keep your friends, family, and potential art collectors informed of your latest works, upcoming events, and more! Imagine - every time you schedule an appearance at an art fair, every time you finish a new painting or photograph, every time you offer a discount on your artwork... you can create a beautiful e-mail in a matter of minutes and then send it to everyone on your list!
You can now proactively drive people to your web pages and increase your sales!
Is there anything else that I should know?
Yes - when you send out an e-mail, you can track to see if and when it gets opened! Yes - we can really do that, too!
Does it cost anything to use this feature?
No - it's 100% free for all members. A feature like this typically costs $100+ per month from other online retailers (e.g. http://www.constantcontact.com/pricing/index.jsp).
Why is it free?
In 2009, Instaprints is dedicated to becoming the premier online venue for professional and up-and-coming artists. We have a wealth of features which do not exist anywhere else in the online art world (e.g. automatic location detection, high-resolution previews, stretched canvas previews, and more), and this is one more to add to the list.
Are my e-mails and e-mail lists secure?
Yes - your e-mails and e-mail lists are always kept private. Instaprints.com will not send e-mails (e.g. newsletters, promotions, etc.) to anyone on your e-mail lists unless they have voluntarily registered to be a member of our site (i.e. registered as an artist, gallery owner, or art collector).
How do I get started?
If you're already a member, simply login to your account and click on the "E-Mail" tab. You can create your e-mail right there in a matter of minutes.
If you're not a member, just open a free account, and you're off!
