Artists are able to display useful, up to date information, such as a profile, introduction, images (either individually or in albums/slideshows), contact details, links to examples of your work (for example Youtube, Soundcloud etc), a blog (for news, events, special offers etc), a calendar and even an enquiry form.
And best of all, each artist can easily make any changes using the easy to use tools built into your web page, with us here in the background to provide initial training and ongoing support.
We recognise that it is easier to add to some content that is already there than to be left with a blank canvas so to speak, so we'll add your initial content for you, and then show you how to add, edit or delete it.
All you have to do is supply some initial content!
If you supply an initial profile/introduction, contact information and a few images, we'll create your page, add your content and then send you instructions on how to add, delete, amend and generally manage your web page. We'll also use your information to optimise your web page for Google and other search engines. We then monitor you and provide ongoing help as you need it.
It's incredibly easy to use and you can login from anywhere, using any device to view and edit your web page. You don't need any technical skills or special software. Just an up to date browser to view the web!
Your page is fully responsive and mobile friendly too, which is essential now that more than half the world's Internet users browse via a mobile.
The easy to use elements you'll use include:
Text: To display profile, contact information, or to embed html code (for example for Youtube videos).
Images: Either display individual images or create albums and slideshows. This function also includes an intuitive resizing and cropping tool to ensure your images display quickly and neatly.
Blog: To add news, special offers
Files & Links: Upload PDFs, link to other web pages Enquiry Form: online form they submit which prompts them to give you information you need in order to answer their enquiry.
Calendar: You can add a calendar of events.
The cost is only $99 per year. Just complete our online form and send your initial info through. We'll get back to you by return and will set up your web page within 48 hours.
By joining Chesapeake International Arts you automatically get your own personal page through the CIA Artists Directory.
