4over’s Zarik Megerdichian Creates New Media Sharing Service, ArtArena
A new media sharing service called ArtArena, where anyone can buy, sell and share their media with fellow ArtArena members and guests, is now available. More than just a stock photography site, the new website and app gives contributors 70 percent commission on everything they sell. Other sites may only offer just 30 percent or less. In addition, contributors have the freedom to price their own art. They can match ArtArena's 99 cent stock photo price, or choose a price of their own. It's up to the contributor.
"One of the primary benefits of ArtArena is that the majority of the revenue goes back to the artist," said ArtArena founder Zarik Megerdichian. Megerdichian is known by many as the founder and CEO of 4over, a successful online printing company. "I wanted to bring the same innovation and accessibility to the stock photo industry that I brought to print." ArtArena is easy to use, and people all over the world have access, so your photos are seen by millions. The site also offers full API connectivity, so web-to-print businesses can add ArtArena's content to their own sites.
ArtArena's extensive media library boasts millions of high-resolution stock images, with six million costing just 99 cents in any size. Creatives are signing up daily and contributing, so the site is growing rapidly.
With an ArtArena account, users each receive 2 gigs of personal space where they can store images privately, sharing only with family and friends if they choose, or they can keep them public. Content contributors will have a full bio page that they can link to their own website, in turn helping to gain new customers every day. The app is easily accessible from most handheld devices, so anyone with a smartphone can share or purchase photos and videos, taking full advantage of the site's features and functions while on the go-any time, anywhere.
