Getting found - Help for Artists

The Port Townsend Arts Commission is offering a free class for artists on getting your website found.

From the release:

Please join us for this workshop, networking, and discussion featuring Mark Gerth, Communications Manager of the Washington State Arts Commission, on Saturday, November 14 from 11 am to 3 pm at Centrum, Fort Worden Commons Room A, Port Townsend.
Increasingly, arts organizations and artists are relying on web traffic to drive sales, increase audience participation, and provide vital information to their constituents. Designing your site to be found and rank high within the search engine results is a task that requires knowledge, skill, persistence, a little luck, and the ability to follow the rules. This workshop for artists and arts organizations will provide the basic information you need to compete, avoid pitfalls, and improve your web presence - including an explanation and tips on onsite and offsite optimization, specific do’s, don’ts, and “these will get you banned!”, social networking tools, and other resources.

Mark Gerth has been the Communications Manager for the Washington State Arts Commission since February 2004. He oversaw the redesign and launch of a new agency website in 2007 and publishes a monthly eNews letter that is received by over 3,000 subscribers throughout the State. Before moving to the Pacific Northwest in 1996, he worked as a manager for a firm specializing in fundraising and marketing for cultural nonprofits including the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Dallas Symphony, and The Vancouver Playhouse in British Columbia.
