If you know how to work a computer mouse, you can design, build and publish your own website.
This live video seminar, in conjunction with the New York Local MORE Committee, will provide a basic overview of creating your own website. Not a technical tutorial but an overview for those who have thought that a website might be a great asset but don’t know where to begin. No technical knowledge required. We'll go over:
- Just what is a website and why does an actor need one?
- What a website can do for your career
- The basics of getting your website off the ground (domains, hosting and other frightening terms explained)
- Do I need a professional web designer?
- Social Media and your digital presence.
- What's it all going to cost?
