3 Tips For A Better First Impression On An Artist’s Website:
I think that a lot of people might be interested in this, so I decided to share with you my recent experience of how to make a website that catches attention. I’m sure that many artists are not good at web design and need some tips.
To do this I had to go through some websites of artists, but the most important thing is that I had to study their own biography and artworks.
So, let’s start! Here are some tips for a better first impression on an artist’s website:
A well-designed website is a key to success in today’s fast-paced business environment. Having a professional looking website that you can update yourself, will help you gain the credibility and recognition that you deserve. A good website design can also be the difference between landing your dream job and not. When people are looking for someone to hire, they’re going to look at your website first. When they find your site to be pleasing and interesting, it’s likely that they’ll call you for an interview. If you’re site is poorly designed, or looks like something a child designed, chances are, the company will choose someone else.
When you make your first impression on an artist’s website, it will help to keep these tips in mind:
1. The most important thing is to help the reader.
2. Let the reader decide what is important.
3. Think about how the information is presented.
1. The Most Important Thing Is To Help The Reader.
Ask yourself: What does my site do for the reader? Does it actually give them something? Or does it just show off? Often times artists’ websites are more about advertising than about art — which is fine, as long as you don’t forget that the point of advertising is to sell a product that benefits the customer — not just to advertise it and hope someone buys it.
The main goal of your website should be to help the artist sell his art, and sell himself to a potential clientele, or patron, or fan base – basically anyone who might buy or commission work from him in the future. If you can’t explain what kind of work he does, so that a colleague can walk into his studio and understand what he’s doing – then you’re not helping him much at all. And if you can’t describe why people should care — well, they won’t.
So think very carefully about this
Artists often rely on their online portfolios to attract clients. This can be a challenge, but it doesn’t have to be. The key is to make a great first impression. Here are three ways to do so:
1. Use a high-quality photo of your work as the main image on your site.
2. Write a well-written artist bio that will help you connect with your audience and attract new fans.
3. Display your contact information in a prominent spot on your site, such as the header or footer.
Let’s say you’re a young, ambitious artist. You want to put your best foot forward with your own website. Here are three easy tips for doing so:
1) Make sure it looks good on all the different devices that people use to browse the internet.
2) Include high resolution images and clear, useful descriptions of your work.
3) Do not repurpose content from social media onto your website.
If your website is in need of some makeover, then read the following tips to create a better impression on your potential clients.
1. Make it clear what you can do for their business. Use information graphics or infographics to display the results of your work and achievements. Make them believe that you can be trusted in what you say. If they are not convinced yet, they will be after checking out your portfolio and seeing the quality of your work.
2. Your portfolio has to be up-to-date. A website with outdated content tells a story of how this business is not really serious about what it does and how it does it. Which means, the business owner does not have enough time for marketing his services or products so he won’t put his effort on making his website attractive to get clients.
3. Have a blog page where you talk about your experiences in blogging world and give time for comments from your visitors about what you have learned about making websites or even ask them if they are interested in having their own website designed by you.
We have to make sure that our portfolios stand out. I know, you already knew that. But how do we make sure that they stand out? There are a few things we can do, and it’s much easier to learn how to than you think.
TIP 1: Make a great first impression
“Having an eye-catching portfolio is like having an impressive resume. It needs to lure the viewer in and make them want to find more of your work.” – Camille Gautier, Artist and Designer
The other day I was checking out a portfolio and came across this amazing artist. Her name is Adriana Sananes. She is the founder of a design firm called Cocolobo Studio, based in Argentina. Her focus is on branding, web design & graphic design for both print & web media. I was immediately interested in her work because she had created a beautiful first impression with her website.
But there was more than just visual appeal that made me want to explore her portfolio further. She had also done an excellent job with providing information about her business on the site. She had a “Services” page with links to read more about what her company did and included an impressive portfolio of her clients’ websites that she designed and developed for them
