Art, Artists and the Web: Part 3--What to Put on an Artist's Website
What to put your the website if you are an artist.
1) The art work
Try and think like a gallery hanging a show. Would a gallery put 20 paintings of an artist's art work on one wall? No, because the visitor would be completely confused and not be able to focus on any one painting. The same rule applies to artist's websites. If you cram 20 pictures on one page the Web visitor will move on. Feature a few paintings on each page.
The opposite is also true. Do not put only a few pictures on your artist website....

Fear the unknown no longer!
Don't feel inferior and don't let that notion frighten you... that's why were here!...
The Topic Of Your Website
The first thing you will have to deal building your website has nothing to do with the web design itself, it's me related to content writing but it must be defined and will effect the rest of your actions. So first of all you need to decide what the topic of your future website is. Topic is very closely connected to another web design issue: keywords. The keywords you select will depend upon the topic you have chosen. When thinking about website topic ask yourself a few questions: What is the goal of the site you are making?...

I had a 'rep' in yesterday who was telling me he had a website, not realising I'm a man of many talents he was telling me about all the new companies he was working with and the great products he could offer and reminded me to go to his website.

Your goal should be to get an online presence. Remember, most surfers are looking for information. Dancing cartoons, streaming video and other interactive features are, in the great majority of cases, unnecessary.

Failure, just like success, is measured differently by each and every one of us. What one man treats as success another may view as failure. For the purposes of this article a website that fails is one that fails to attract and convert enough targeted visitors into paying customers.
