Artist Room Details
Has the Corona Virus left you with nowhere to sell your products? Get your products for sale in front of online, ticket-buying attendees!
Artist Alley at QuarantinedCon is just like any other convention. You go to the convention hall before it starts and set up your store making it ready for your visitors. Once the convention starts you have visitors in attendance who show interest in your products, come to your booth/store, ask questions and buy your items. QuarantinedCon is no different.
Our system uses the latest, state-of-the-art technology and is set up to give everyone who attends conventions the same experience as attending one in person to the best of our ability. Once you purchase your artist space, you will be given access to load up pictures of your art, descriptions, and set the prices of your products to your booth/store.
When visitors visit your store/booth, they will see a livestream screen, a button to tip you while you stream, a button to commission you, a live messaging chat feed where your patrons can ask questions and/or chat amongst themselves, your print gallery, any news you want to share, and past videos you’ve recorded through your YouTube channel. To support the need for social distancing, we have added “print fulfillment” so that you can load up your print files, and our print fulfillment team will take care of the rest from printing on 80lb heavyweight stock with Archival Inks to packaging and shipping. (You won't have to worry about getting out a bunch of prints during this pandemic.)
Artists are responsible for shipping anything sold other than prints loaded into your print fulfillment store. .All originals are and commissions are your responsibility to ship.
Buyers are no different online than in person. They like to ask questions and have them answered. If you live stream from your store, you can personally greet them from your live stream or simply message them back in the chat box.
Your Artist stores can be used to sell just about anything as long as it follows our terms and conditions. Also, it obviously helps if you are catering to pop culture loving attendees. The people attending QuarantinedCon are the same people who were planning on attending all of the conventions that have recently been cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic and quarantine.
How will attendees be able to find my QC booth/store?
When attendees purchase their tickets, they will be given access to all of the various rooms QuarantinedCon has to offer, including yours! When attendees enter the convention hall, they will see a list of artists with 1-minute Intro videos with a brief description of what each artist’s store has to offer. When the attendees click on your store name they are taken to your booth/store profile with no other distractions.
Your patrons can easily:
Watch your 1 minute welcome video
Tip you while you livestream. (we recommend livestreaming art as much as you can during the convention)
Chat with you
Browse through your listed inventory and purchase your products

QuarantinedCon is hosted on a platform called artfarm. It's a fully immersive ecommerce platform designed to handle all of the aspects of a convention, such as live streaming to interact and engage with attendees, Live chat to see attendees questions and comments, personal "rooms/booths" fully customized to the artist or vendor who sets it up. We also have tech support should you need assistance. It's all user-friendly and very easy to set up. Artist rooms and vendor rooms are similar but vendors can list an infinite amount of items in their store. Artists have print fulfillment options and are limited to 25 print uploads, but they can sell infinite amounts original items such as original art, sculptures, handmade items, ect. through the customizable commission system. Artists are also able to be "tipped" during their live streams. The 15% is an expense that artfarm has to charge in order to cover the various expenses that will occur on the tech side of things from operating this size of an event while accommodating the needs of everybody. This platform is integrated with Stripe, not PayPal. Each time someone makes a purchase from you, your money is automatically deposited in YOUR stripe account minus the 15% fee.
This is a great way for you to not only make money but also hang out with your friends during this quarantine and also make new ones from our attendees.
