Websites for Artists

Here is some work I have been doing on a non-profit basis for painters and artists. Most of them are very creative , but especially the smaller artists need help with making a showcase website for their art. This is also a much more professional option than Tumblr for Websites.

  1. Create a WordPress.com account for the artist
  2. Encourage the artist to take the 18$/per year for custom domain name
  3. Exmplain how you login to http://yourwebsitenamehere.com/wp-admin with the username and password you created in step1
  4. Bulk Upload their high quality images in the Dashboard > Media > Add New
  5. Chose a theme like http://www.dessign.net/fontfolio-theme/ because it showcases art work from several posts on the front page
  6. Create a different post  for each painting. At bottom right of the post- set Featured Image. Insert Art work from Add Media button on top> from Media Gallery
  7. Change the About Page by WordPress to add contact details of gallery and information about artist so customers can buy the art
  8. Publish the Website for that painter

Some Websites I have created in less than hour each for artists, for free , are below

  1. 4 – Then offer a solution in your network marketing
    products. So many people get involved only to have their hoped
    crushed 2 weeks later. Those around you start avoiding you, even the ones
    close to you.
