My phone--which I reluctantly carried once I became a parent--was used to make phone calls, period.&nbsp; I didn't even text.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>The landscape of online selling platforms has changed drastically in the past several years, catering their marketing capabilities and visual formats to mobile users.&nbsp; In order to stay competitive, I caved and joined the ranks of iPhone devotees.&nbsp; Here is how my iPhone helps me market and manage my online art business more effectively:</div><div><ol><li>&nbsp;<strong>The <a href="https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/sell-on-etsy/id860815329?mt=8">Sell On Etsy App</a>.</strong>&nbsp; This app is specifically for mobile devices, and allows me to manage my shop on the go.&nbsp; My phone now notifies me with a loud audio CHA-CHING every time I make a sale, as well as allows me to post Shop Updates instantly from anywhere, linking my update directly to any item in my shop.&nbsp; Honestly, this app is worth it for the "cha-ching" sound alone. <br /></li><li><strong>The high quality on-the-go camera.</strong>&nbsp; Now, I don't take my print photography on my phone, but my iPhone camera allows me to take artfully exposed still life images for my shop updates, <a href="http://www.galleryzooart.com/blog/st-louis-springtime-flower-tour-via-iphone/">blog</a>, and social media posts--I can even edit them directly on my phone if I want to crop or tweak the exposure.&nbsp; This saves me EONS of time as I don't have to use my slr camera, hook it to my PC, download the images, then edit them in PhotoShop just to get a quick image.&nbsp; Plus, the images are so high quality I can use them as references for my art paintings.</li></ol><p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;
