Business Software for Artists from Artful.ly

Wednesday, August 19 2015. Posted in Arts Organizations, Business Tools and Resources, Technical Assistance

Artful.ly is an intuitive software program that allows artists or arts organizations to sell tickets, take donations, and track donors and patrons on their own site. It works with Mail Chimp and your own website to allow artists and arts organizations to connect with and manage their relationships with their patrons and fans in a more organized way. The best news is, it's made possible through Fractured Atlas and is FREE!

ACI TIP: Seems to be an awesome tool for bands or small performing arts companies, but other artists should check it out to see if it might be useful for them too.
