Art (or any other Niche) Websites for Free
Art is a beautiful expression of how a person interprets shape, colour and texture. Original art has always been something that I have been drawn too. Here at Cake at Vic Falls, local artists have been featured to help them become known worldwide. These are humble, talented folk, simply trying to earn a steady income with their artwork.
As I have been working with the Artist in Victoria Falls – the same two questions come up in every conversation…
How can I create my own website? Can I create it for free?
To make it easier to explain, I thought I would put up this post so that I can direct anyone interested in starting an art website here. Or any other niche website 🙂
So, can you start a website for free?
Yes, you can. And initially, I did with Siterubix. They have –
- an excellent choice of themes to select – including themes for an artist to display their work.
- It is hosted by a reliable server.
- Has training and technical support and a supportive community.
- You get two free websites.
While I started out with Siterubix, I later I decided to explore further online opportunities and chose to go premium for the year and register a dot-com domain name.
As an artist – this could be a good option as you would earn an income from your website while promoting your art. How? you may be wondering. By promoting art products you are using or have used at some point in your artistic career. Or at the very least, you could earn from advertisements.
I am no expert, so this is not a post going into the details on how to create a website and supplement your art income. I got all my training here and am still learning something every day!
If you are an Artist in Vic Falls and are reading this, know that –
- You can start a website for free. One that you will have full control over and won’t need to pay anyone else to maintain!
- You get all the help you need from the beginning – a first level course that will get your website live and indexed into Google, Bing and Yahoo. This stuff needs hand-holding – It is a step by step approach and at the end of the first level, you have exactly what you need to have an online presence. (If you wish to pursue further opportunities you will need to go premium to get the other levels of training.)
Contact me about featuring you on Cake at Vic Falls – it’s also free 🙂 and I will send folk from my website to your awesome artwork online! If you would rather not worry with a website, but would still like to be featured – get in touch!
Any questions? I will be happy to answer them below. All the best.
