Websites – a Presentation at Metal Clay Mojo Retreat

In my last post I mentioned two regional conferences that are being planned for the U.S. next year. Well guess what?! I’m presenting at the Metal Clay Mojo conference next September! My topic is Website Design for Artists.

Yes, the conference is 10 months away but I Really want this to be a useful presentation for you so I’ve been sketching outlines for a few weeks already. What I want to know is What Do YOU Want To Learn About?

Here’s some possible topics to cover (will probably have to choose a subset due to time). What would you prefer, add or remove?

Planning
Should you have a website?
What do you want to achieve with your website?
Design tips (Layout, Colors, Branding, Images)
Navigation
Content

Setting it up
DIY or get help?
Hosting & Domain names
Terminology
Images – resolution, picture quality, sizes
Links
Descriptions

Next steps
eCommerce
Social Media
Email lists
SEO
Advertising

Keeping it running
Maintenance
Backups
Updating content
Analytics

I realize there’s a wide range of stages where people are ‘at’ with their websites (or lack thereof!) so I’m also interested in finding out at what stage you’re at with your website & what you want your website to do for you.

About Kim Paige

As a mother of two young girls, a wife and the family breadwinner, I dream and plan for the days when I can spend more time with art and my business. Until then, I squeeze in as much time as I can in my little basement studio with support from my husband. I’m a techno-phile and information-junkie so when I can’t create, I love to stay up-to-date on the latest Metal Clay news. You can find my website at http://www.RedTree-Studio.com.

  1. I want it all, too! But I am particularly interested in the ecommerce & social media (‘Next Steps’) areas. This will be great, Kim! Looking forward to it!
