Today professional and even hobbyist artists need websites. They have become the easiest way to direct any interested client to view more artworks. Truly a modern-day business card and something no serious artists should go without.
The number of options that are available can be overawing to the not-so-tech-savvy. Prices can vary considerably for what is essentially the same product.
The idea of buying domains, web hosting space and design and content management and then on top the need to do it all right so that you have some chance that your website will even appear in Google searches, can be too much.
It’s easy to get things wrong at the beginning and end up with domains that go no-where, a half-finished website and a website that is not fit for purpose.
As an artists myself I need to talk to like-minded but knowledgeable people about the steps. Wotwebsite are really the best people to talk to about artists websites and their set up as they are artists themselves.
They can marry the technical side with the sensitive needs of artists to create websites that are simple, classy, artistic and most important of all, self managed.
A self-managed artists site means that the artists is freed from the financial grasp of the webmaster and can upload images and content when they like.
WordPress has proved over the years to be by far the most intuitive and stable platform for a whole range of website needs.
