Making the most of the TMAG website
This has been run twice now. If you are interested in either a group session with friends, or in having 30 minutes individual tuition, please ask Lois Wakeman.
Bring your laptop or iPad, words and pictures, and we will help you create your own web page on the TMAG site, learn how to keep it up to date, and also how to add details of your own events. Take the chance to get free publicity and a link to your own web site if you have one. If there’s time, we’ll touch on using Twitter and Facebook as well.
Please let us know which session you will be attending so we can arrange for enough help, or contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Web sites for artists
Lois Wakeman will be sharing her practical expertise on making an effective and user-friendly web site to promote your art or craft. Not just the technical side (“how can I make a site that’s easy for me to change without paying someone to do it for me?”), but also how to plan and write content that will entice visitors to spend time finding out about you – and hopefully lead to commissions, approaches from galleries, or sales. Not to mention the tricky issues of marketing and search engine success.
Free handouts for people attending – simple, clear instructions to take home and use.
Time and date TBA.
Past talks have included Framing your work to sell, and Photographing 2D work for reproduction, The importance of a sketchbook.
