Websites can show off your art, help you communicate with your fans, find clients and even sell your goods. Getting a website built for you can be expensive but Jay Pierstorff is here to help! In this class, you will build your own website from start to finish without learning to program or writing a single line of code, just bring your laptop computer and get started. Learn to update your site easily and quickly; creating new sites and making changes can be easy. This class will cover domain names, hosting, photographing, creating, sourcing and adding images, email, mailing lists, ecommerce, search engine optimization, photographing your art, blogging, avoiding the most common mistakes and much more. Plenty of individual help will be provided. At the end of this class, you will have your own personal website up and running. Failure is not an option! A portable computer and basic computer skills are required.
