Tamarack Foundation U Webinar: Demystifying Website Building for WV Artists & Creatives
emma | April 26, 2016
On Thursday, June 9, noon – 1 pm, we will host Give it to Me Straight: Demystifying Website Building for WV Artists & Creatives, featuring presenter Megan Bullock from MESH Design & Development. This webinar is free.
Whether you’re starting from scratch or have a website that needs a refresh, we will discuss what you need to know to make a confident decision about next steps. We’ll touch on: the best website options to get you started; how to handle costs; considerations for presenting yourself in the best light using language and images; and examples of well-designed artist websites. We’ll explain what a content management system is, and when and how to work with a professional web designer. All West Virginia artists and creatives have the potential to use an online presence to build their opportunities within and beyond state boundaries. Let’s discuss how to get there.
