If your items can't be seen, they can't be sold! This month, we'll hear from industry veteran, J. Michael Dolan, on getting your work out there.
Don't forget your items in our marketplace! The FNO Marketplace is a great way to start out selling online without worrying about start-up costs.

The Internet provides us with an opportunity to do it all ourselves. However, there's a downside: unless you're an expert, whole-brained "multi-tasker," you run the risk of completing production on your record, book, painting, script, video or big project, then failing to market it effectively, pitch it properly or "get it out there." One of the most common frustrations I hear from clients: "I'm an artist not a salesman. I can easily produce creative ideas, I'm just not good at Internet marketing, social networking, or manifesting my work in the world." Truth is, somebody's gotta do the "left-brain" work that you're not doing, otherwise you'll be sitting alone in your castle with a stack of unseen, un-pitched, un-distributed, unsold, genius works of art and worthwhile ideas!

We will pay you $5 for every new paid member you send our way. You can make money by simply telling others about FNO. Refer two friends, get $10, refer four, get $20... Take the cash or apply your earnings toward next year's renewal! We have tons of widgets to choose from on our new Affiliate page, and have made it easier than ever to use.

Word of mouth is the best form of
advertising, and we'd like to thank you for spreading the word about FNO. You could be earning
extra cash just by referring fellow vendors or festival participants to FNO.
Quick info about our affiliate program:
Be sure to hand people your business card or a custom FNO Affiliate Flyer
when you refer them to be sure you get credit when they join as a Pro Member. If you want to
learn more, go here - where you can print your own flyers to hand out (to do this, you
must have an affiliate number, all Pro Members automatically have one, if you are a free
member, you must request one).
- We pay $5 for each new pro member you send our way.
- We pay quarterly via Paypal.
- You may apply your affiliate credit towards next year's renewal.
- Referrals can come in via word of mouth or through special tracking links you use in
emails or online.
Get a Link to Your Page in Our Members Link!
Pro Members! If you have a website or blog and link to Festivalnet.com, we will link to your site on our Member's Links page!
The Member's Links page is a great way to get more traffic and exposure to your site. It's a total win-win.
Before getting in touch to swap links, visit your 'My Account' area and click 'Affiliate Tools' on the right to get your code for linking to FNO. Once the link to FNO is live on your site or blog, let Julie know to get added. Be sure your website is listed in your 'modify profile' area. Also, if you do not see 'affiliate tools' in your account area, that means you are not a Pro Member or an affiliate, just get in touch to get started.
