Website Consultation for Artists (or anyone)
— four hour one-on-one intensive —
The purpose of this consultation is to assist in setting up a website (in a blog format) that you can eventually manage and change yourself. Simplicity and ease are prime directives in this process. Once you master the basics of WordPress then you can maintain your own website.
Website will be made on wordpress.com and set up ahead of time prior to a four hour one-on-one intensive to refine the design and function of the website/blog, a facebook art page and and twitter site. Additional follow-up questions and guidance will be given to assist you in maintaining your own site. No website design software is required. WordPress sites are basically free, unless you want to opt for the pro status which allows for more control of design.
(Note: wordpress.com operates differently from wordpress.org, which requires that you have a hosting program to support the site.)
Consultation fee is $250.
Additional fees could be registration of a domain name for about $5-12/year,
$13 annually for mapping the domain name to the website/blog,
or $99 annually for premium level for more design control, domain registration and mapping.
