Three words to describe the new Sleek theme..
Simple, clean and minimalist.
When you’re selling art online, you want to place all of the focus on your images.
It’s important, therefore, to make sure your website’s design is simple and clean enough to keep the viewers’ focus on those images.
This was our thinking when we created these beautiful, new themes that put your images front and center with presentation based on the very latest standards in web design.
Take advantage of the new, full width billboard. Surprise users with a handy and modern ride-along navigation bar that stays with them as they scroll.
It’s all fully responsive to make for an incredible experience on desktops, tablets, and mobile phones alike.
And that versatile experience is important! Our stats show us that many of our most successful artists are heavily leveraging social media – especially Facebook and Instagram – to drive traffic to their sites.
So what does that mean? That means mobile traffic.
When the smart phone wielding, thumb swiping masses of social media click a post or ad you want to make sure you are looking your best.
So what % of your traffic is coming from mobile users?
Do you know how to check?
Jump into Google Analytics and take a look.
Go to Audience > Mobile > then Devices. Then look at the % in the upper left hand corner.
For us here on the ASF Blog, it’s 35% in the last 30 days. Last month it was over 50%.
For some of our most successful artists, we have seen up to 60% at times.
So looking amazing on mobile is not an after thought anymore, it’s a priority.
We are happy to report that the new ASF 2.0 Themes were designed from the ground up to offer an amazing and functional mobile experience.
And, most importantly… it converts.
