Websites for Artists
Do you want to improve the business of your art, or do you want simply to produce it?
Actually, it’s possible to do both.
Imagine a new website for yourself where you can not only display your art but also offer it for sale directly from your website. Imagine a new website where you can produce your own Art Shows whenever you want.
Design and functionality standards for websites change at least every two years. If your website is older than two years, you’re out of date. If the only updates you make to your website are the additions of your new work, you’re out of date.
A new website:
- Built on the WordPress platform
- With a Visual Builder installed that makes additions/deletions/updates of both images and copy as easy as writing an email
- And with a custom template prepared to your specs for producing your own art shows whenever you want
will help keep you current in the online world and position yourself favorably for not simply showing your work but selling it, too. And by selling, I mean selling it yourself, without gallery owner commissions, directly from your studio.
