Are you a poets without a website?
As the designer and creator of many web sites, I am often asked by poets "Should I have one?"
As someone who embraces new ways to sell products, my answer would be YES! If you have a book, or CD, or want an area to display all of your work for others to admire, then you should consider having a website.
There are 5 main steps to taking on technology.
1. Establish what your domain name will be
A domain name is the name of your site. For example it can be a cute name you come up with such as apoetsplace.com or your name or anything you want that represents what you do. Then once you come up with a few possibilities, you need to search through a domain name provider to see if the name is available. If it is, grab it.
There are many places to purchase a domain name, but I use www.ipowerweb.com they cost just $6.95 USD for the year, and you can have a free place to host it, plus they have utilities to help you create and market your site.
