Our research has shown that 50% of our artists have their own independent web presence, primarily websites or Tumblr accounts, and are open to easier ways of exposing their Society6 portfolio within that web presence. As such, we want to explore options to facilitate this need.
The task set is to provide analysis on how other sites/people service this or similar needs with their users. The analysis can take any form suitable and should explore reference sites within our space (e.g. Cafe Press, Etsy) as well as those that might have applicable lessons from other spaces. It should explain to the reader what needs these examples serve, how they go about it and offer some opinion on the pros and cons of their selected approaches.
