Build Your Own Artist Website with this GUIDED Course!

It has never been easier to build a fantastic, responsive website for your art business.  Artist Website Academy is a comprehensive website design Course / Process that will walk you through, step by step how to create your own Artist website… PLUS  you’ll learn skills to use in your ongoing marketing efforts, as well!

Have you tried creating your own website for your art business, without success?

Have you held back from doing so because it seems like an overwhelming feat?

If so, you aren’t alone… and guess what?  It’s not your fault either!   I have no doubt that you have the creativity to design a website that reflects your unique style, because, after all, you are an artist!  The issue is in the technology and the confusion on which solutions to choose and which approach to take.   There are hundreds of sites offering solutions and promising you a quick and easy way to create a website.  But you are tied to their designs and their platforms and as it turns out … it’s not so easy. There are a lot of moving parts and wrong paths to take.

In Artist Website Academy, I guide you through a proven process. I’ve made all the technology choices for you… based on what I know works.  I’ve been building websites for over 20 years.  I started back in the day when everything had to coded in HTML, PHP and Javascript, so I know what works!  I provide quidance and best practices on things like layout, search engine optimization, eCommerce, image formatting, logo design, intellectual property concerns and much more!  Luckily now solutions have evolved so that anyone can create a website using visual tools and  some guidance… allowing artists, like you to focus on what you do best… create and design!

I built Artist Website Academy with artists in mind.  I want you to be successful with online marketing and I’m a strong believer that success starts with your own dedicate website…one that you have ultimate control over!

Without this program my website would still be sitting in cyber space stagnant.”

“I’m participating in Laurie Trumpet Williams BETA program of Artist Website Academy Without this program my website would still be sitting in cyber space stagnant, several years ago I created my site using WordPress and struggled my way getting it started with one of the provided templates. After a few months of frustration, I gave up. With Laurie’s program and her professional assistance, I have a classy updated and functioning website with actual pieces of art listed. I have learned so much as of to date taking her program and looking forward to continuing in development of my site. Joining Artist Website Academy, you can learn to put your personal touch on your site to promote and market your art. Thank you Laurie for offering your program.”
