When you go to an art software website, what do you usually see? Lots of great art by users of the software.
Yep, it’s marketing. And I think it’s effective. Attractive compelling images are important for selling.
Here’s an example.
Surely this has a beneficial sales effect. How could it not.
We all like to think marketing doesn’t work on us, but it does.
Jan, have you ever thought about collecting stuff from users and creating a user art gallery?
multiple uses for user art -
New page on the website showing off nifty user art, to help convince others to buy. Attach information to each image to explain what it is/what feature was used?
Occasional Twitter posts calling attention to some cool art while boosting awareness of PMNG with appropriate hashtags and links. Build up dat social media marketing presence! (that’s what social media is for)
Random selection displayed on the PMNG Home Screen. It’s fun to see what the other boiz are makin’. I expect most would like this, but for those that don’t a switch to turn it off is probably advisable.
Yes, you’d NEED to curate and quality control the artwork and only include the best of the best. Even seen an ugly underwear model? haH
I think you may need artwork release forms from contributing artists so they can’t randomly try to make you remove their stuff after they send it to you.
