My Portfolios is one of the most helpful tools we offer here on Artist’s Market Online. It is a record keeping tool that artists, designers and photographers can use to track the status of their submissions to multiple markets.
The custom folders in My Portfolios allow you to store favorite market listings in customizable folders that make sense to you. Here’s a quick tutorial to help you start adding your work and tracking your submissions:
Part 1: Add Your Art to My Work
Part 2: Track Your Work in My Submissions
Once you’ve added a work, you can track it in My Submissions. There are two ways to do this.
First Way: Start with the Market
Select a market that you’ve already saved to a My Contacts folder (there’s a “Save to a Contact Folder” button on each individual market listing). Here I’ve clicked on A.T. Associates in the My Markets folder. From the pull-down menu I’ve selected the work I am submitting: 2012 PM. Click submit.
Second Way: Start with the Work
Create a Submission
Now you will be able to track this submission in the My Submissions folder.
Pretty simple, right? To get even more out of your Artist’s Market Online subscription, check out this tutorial for saving your market searches to receive automatic market updates.
