Building a Website for Your Jewellery Business
In this one day intensive class you will set up your own website using the free and simple to use website creation tool weebly.com.
Have a look at tutor Anna Campbell’s website that was created using weebly.
Techniques covered in this class include:
Setting up your own website with your choice of colours and layout
Creating different pages so you can showcase photos of your work, create a ‘contact me’ form, about me section etc
Practice editing and adding to your pages so that you are confident in doing this at home
Be able to purchase a domain name (a website address) and attach it to your website
Set up a sliding gallery of your images
This class has been designed for new or existing jewellery business owners who would like to set up a website to showcase their work or to link to other websites where their jewellery is for sale e.g. Etsy, Folksy etc.
Please note, if you want to sell directly from your website you will need to purchase a professional weebly account (this is not covered in the course fee). Advice will be given on this and the costs involved and it is simple to do with weebly via google checkout or a paypal business account.
You will have set up your website, attached your own domain name (web address) and be able to make changes to your website whenever you want to.
What you need to bring to this class:
To get the most out of this class we recommend you bring along a flash drive with photos of your jewellery and of yourself ready to add to your website. Alternatively you can also email these photos to yourself or use an online storage space e.g. dropbox
Your email address and password. (This may sound basic but many people have their password saved on their computer and can’t remember it when they come to class! You will need it in order to confirm your registration on weebly).
LJS laptops will be available for use during the class but if you prefer you can bring along your own laptop (but make sure you have charged it).
