Wendy has ordered art supplies for over 25 years and knows where to get the best art supplies at the best price. In addition to ordering supplies for her own use and her art workshops, Wendy keeps a small stock of art supplies on hand for sale to artists. If you live near the studio, she probably has what you need at a better price and will save you driving time and fuel. She is placing orders frequently, so can order anything she doesn’t have in stock. The studio is in Wainfleet, Ontario – 10 minutes from Port Colborne and Welland, and 30 minutes from St. Catharines, Fort Erie and Niagara Falls.
Wendy taught small business owners how to market their businesses for 10 years. She did weekly business training webinars with people attending from around the world. She is now using this experience to market her own art business, as well as help fellow artists. She helps artists with website design and marketing by building websites, creating marketing materials or teaching how. Resources and more information will be added soon. Contact Wendy if you have questions or need help.
The way a website is built is extremely important. Although the “look and feel”, or design of the site are important, even more important is the navigation of the site and that it is designed properly to be found by the search engines. If not, you can have a nice looking site, that is quite simply an “expensive business card”. No one is finding it, unless you direct them to your site. Wendy has used a lot of different website building software over the years, but now uses WordPress because of the ability to integrate your blog with your website for convenience and best search engine optimization. The availability and ease of adding plugins for galleries, e-commerce, and many other features make WordPress an optimal format for artists and small business owners. Some of the websites Wendy has built:
- This website
- Wainfleet & Niagara Artists website
- Kathleen Thorsen’s website
- The WorksTeam website
- Homeschooling Freedom website
- Marketing Materials: brochures, posters, etc.
- Online Marketing & Social Networking
- Photographing Artwork
- Record Keeping
