Can Finally

Start Feeding you

In Ten Easy Steps.

RESEARCH domain names.

%

Done

WHY?

Gallery owners will take advantage of you.

The year’s 2020. For a few bucks, you can make your own gallery.

Use GoDaddy.com

and research names.

 

TIPS

Simple = memorable

Taken = improbable

Cater the name to what your audience cares about.

Choose a name you can design a logo for.

Don’t give up.

② ESTABLISH your art gmail.

%

Done

WHY?

You need an email to segregate personal from business.

Start with gmail: it’s free.

If your business fails, at least your name isn’t attached!

ALWAYS

First try your domain name.

NEVER

Change the domain name you found in step 1 just because gmail doesn’t have it.

TIP

Add “.artistname” if your domain name is taken.

BUY the domain name.

%

Done

WHY?

You found it on GoDaddy. Now make it yours!

Congratulations. You just bought an art gallery.

No one else can take it unless you fail to renew your new domain.

TIPS

 Get Honey.

It saved me lots of money.

You don’t need any “extras”.

If budgetable, buy 10 years of renewals, so you don’t have to worry about it.

If not, buy 1 year.

DESIGN your logo.

%

Done

WHY?

This is your brand. Be prepared to see it a lot.

You’ve named your “baby”. Now give it a face.

A logo, alone, should one day bring instant recognition to your work.

TIPS

You’re an artist.

Don’t waste money on a designer.

With a smartphone and Adobe Capture, you can make a logo in seconds.

Save in .png or .svg.

Make it fit in a “square”.

Keep it simple.

⑤ JOIN cloudways.

%

Done

WHY?

Now you need hosting.

Cloudways is the best hosting company.

If a domain is your gallery name, hosting is your building. For $10 a month, you pay rent on the Internet. That’s it.

(This very site is on Cloudways)

TIPS

Don’t get bogged down by technical details. Follow the four videos in this step.

Time is now money: pummel through to step 10 to start selling your art.

But, don’t fret.

You have much more time than signing up for something else like Wix.

⑥ SET UP your site.

%

Done

WHY?

You are seconds away from owning your own art enterprise.

Remember that domain name you bought in step 3?

Now you just need to connect your DNS in GoDaddy to Cloudways, and there’s the end of this technical stuff!

TIPS

Bookmark your Cloudways Login Screen.

Bookmark your GoDaddy Login Screen.

⑦ GET divi

%

Done

WHY?

Recall the best art set you own?

Divi is the equivalent, except for website design.

Instead of hiring a coder, renting a site builder, etc., Divi is easy and is a permanent purchase. 

At $250, you have a lifetime website-building kit.
This site was built in two days with Divi.

TIPS

 Divi not only gives you a lifetime website builder, it gives you a library of tutorials to use.

You have 30 days to get your money back.

Even if your site fails, you can reuse this purchase as a web design kit or for another venture.

It is good for life.

BUILD your enterprise

%

Done

WHY?

This is the BEST part: your art creating an experience for users.

Your website is like a house. Your visitors are guests.

Start from your audience’s perspective, get a handle on Divi, and let your creative juices flow.

Photograph and display your work.

TIPS

 Install a WebP Plugin before uploading your art.

Follow along quickly. Make the site your own. You’ll learn details later!

DRAW customers

%

Done

WHY?

 You have the premise. Now start catering to the people. 

Gaining your first customer is the best hope your art gallery can have. Go for it.

You will adapt, upgrade, and improve. But you need momentum.

TIPS

Add a footer, where you should put your email, and add social media as you go.

Try Pinterest and YouTube:

both free and excellent platforms to draw huge crowds.

⑩ EXPAND 

%

Done

WHY?

You’ve done it.

You’ve made an online business.

Now you get to tinker and improve your website, to show all your art, build ideas…

and even make more websites.

Add the polish you can as an artist.

TIPS

WooCommerce = Your Online Art Store.

Try Dropshipping your designs as new brands with Printify, which creates and sells items with your art at your profit – all on your site.

Self-publish an art book, etc., the sky is limitless.
