Course Overview:
Websites are increasingly the marketing tool of choice for visual artists, photographers and filmmakers, and not being online or having a weak online presence risks losing out on this opportunity. Most potential clients will start with google when they want to find or research a recommendation, and your website is likely to be the first "point of call" for these potential clients and is responsible for that all important first impression.

This course is specifically aimed at visual artists who would like to, at the end of the 2 day training, have a fully functioning, fully customisable website that will not only be visually appealing, instantly searchable and easy to manage, but also a site that will work on several levels - an image / catalogue that sells, a portfolio that entices, a platform to deliver news and opinion in the form of a blog.
