A widget is an embeddable chunk of third-party code that can be installed on an HTML-based web page by any user; it does not require special programming access. The OnCampus widget is a flash widget that displays a piece of your artwork that is for sale through OnCampusCreations.com, along with a link to buy and sell art at OnCampus.
The OnCampus Portfolio widget provides registered artists with a block of flash code that they can place on any blog or social networking profile, such as MySpace. This code displays a flash widget that randomly selects a piece of your work to display from the gallery of artwork shown at OnCampusCreations.com. The OnCampus Portfolio widget also provides two links: one directing art collectors to “buy my art now” and another telling fellow student artists how to “sell your art now.” Clicking on the first link brings customers to your page at OnCampus, and the second brings new, unregistered artists to the OnCampus signup page.
Placing widgets on highly trafficked sites, especially ones where the users know you personally, will drive buyers to your page and help you complete more sales. By actively promoting yourself as an OnCampus artist online, you’ll be able to attract more attention from family, friends and alumni. Best of all, it’s free.
