Your website is the ultimate self-promotion tool. Bob and Kate Burridge will discuss the importance of having a website, along with how to create one and how to design the “storefront” that is necessary to show your work, tell your story, and make sales.
Topics will include:
- Domain names and your brand
- The beauty of clean, consistent design
- How to organize your images
- Navigation do’s and don’ts
- Webmaster? Or DIY?
