interconnected1The 3rd thing that every artist and designer needs for the New Year is …a WEB SITE.

 

Gone are the days of a website being a “nice to have”, it’s a “need to have”.

 

Why?

 

It’s the most immediate method of showing your work to the people that need to see it.

If your plan is to sell more work, display more work or do more freelance work as a designer; you must make sure that the patrons or buyers can view your work when they want to and from where they want. And even if the goal is not to sell your work, you need to be able to show it to your  audience 24/7.

 

I have had so many opportunities come open because I either passed someone my business card that sent them my website, or sent them an email with a direct link to my work.

 

Now, I know that most of you already agree with this. You’ve known for quite some time that you need some form of web presence as an artist or designer. The problem is that you STILL have yet to take action. The paradox about this situation is that many artists that know that they need a website go on the web everyday.
