Put Your Best WEB Foot Forward with Branding Expert Marjorie R. Asturias
As a professional in the performing arts, your brand is your calling card and what distinguishes you from the crowd. In this interactive workshop we will discuss what effective branding is and how to accomplish it. Then we’ll walk through the steps to create a basic website to reflect your brand and will leave plenty of time for questions and assistance.
Should you choose, you can leave this workshop having created your very own website! Build and manage your personal brand online with a WordPress.com website. WordPress.com lets you create, customize, and launch a user-friendly website without having to know a single line of code. Even if you’ve never heard of HTML, if you can use a smartphone, you can build a beautiful website for your portfolio, video reel or media gallery. You can also create a contact form for agents, producers, directors and other to reach you directly.
