Denton Website Design using WordPress

You have found the first website business in Denton, Texas, that ever specialized and still specializes in wordpress websites. These sites are designed for ease of use, and being turned over to customers so they can run the site themselves. Nothing is ever held hostage, and all files are yours. It’s not magic! It’s wordpress for those who demand quality and functionality from their sites.

I do sites for all purposes. And as I always say, and as it applies to this crop of University students here in Denton, Texas, “You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make him / her think!” Your professors are not telling you what you need to know to get a job – bottom line. And that’s if you actually are taught by professors! Typically, in the corporate education world (where educational institutions are actually now churning corporate machines), you are taught by adjuncts, you are passed through without knowing what you need to know, and you are not a threat to anyone in your professional field (including those adjuncts) upon graduation. ONE OF THE THINGS they don’t tell you is that you need a professional online presence, and you need it by the time you begin your third year of college (sooner is even better). Feel Free To Think!

I hear horror stories from established businesses and professionals about their websites being held hostage, hacked, ineffective and expensive. And that’s just in Denton, Texas! You think creating a site and doing it yourself is the way to go? All I can say to that is, “If you think a professional is expensive, wait until you hire an amateur!” Denton businesses and professionals are typically way behind the curve when it comes to attractive, professional, functional websites that generate business. Heck! Some of them even still use print advertising! Imagine that? Talk about the most expensive ROI in the world? try print advertising!

 

Websites for Artists and Art Students

Websites for Artists and Art Students

Is art your thing? Are you a student studying art, or already a successful artist working as an artist for a living? It doesn’t matter which you are, you NEED a website if you live in the visual world. And that’s coming from a photographer who relies on his art for a living. You have chosen a difficult path. Why make it harder than it has to be?

I am amazed every year when I get a phone call, or two, from students at the University of North Texas, looking for work in the field of art known as photography. Unfortunately, to this date, none, not one of them has had a website that I could go to and look at while I was talking to them on the phone. It doesn’t matter if you’re Generation X, Y or Z, you need a website if you are taking your education in the visual arts to the world. And you need it BEFORE you graduate from school!

The site featured here is by one of those rare professors, he’s tenured and still teaching and creating new sculpture to this day. Richard Davis is a sculptor and professor at the University of North Texas. He already knew he needed a new website by the time I started talking to him about it, and his needs were simple. He just wanted to be able to tell someone to Google his name and his site would come up. Many from pre generation X, Y or Gap, just rely on Google to be their guide, telling friends to, “Google their name.” Now as simple as that sounds, what if your name is John Brown?

Not only did I create a content rich site for Richard, I also took the time to optimize the site (and some other top secret magic). Within two days, all anyone in the entire world had to do was Google – “Richard Davis Sculpture,” and every page I created for him dominated the top Google spots!

While students are less concerned with Google ranking than working professionals, they still should have their own sites for a plethora of smart reasons. If you are a UNT or TWU student looking for an easy start to your future career website, this is the place. You and your parents are into five figures for your education, and you’ve been true to your creativity, so the cost of an original website by Denton Digital is a tiny fraction of the cost of your education. If you don’t have a website to showcase your art, then you’re stepping over dollars to pick up dimes. There’s just no good reason you can come up with not to create a website that gives you the visibility, access, communication and control that you will get with a wordpress site by Denton Digital.
