On October 10th, I posted an article about the logistics of sending out printed promos. It pointed out the importance of having a link to a professional website. I received a question in response asking how to achieve this without breaking the bank. Here follows both the question and response:
I am a mixed media Illustrator, but do not have a personal website of yet as I do not have the experience or the money to design a personal web space, even the simplest of codes intimidates me. I do have portfolios up on gallery sites like deviantart and facebook and tumblr, but I don’t feel these look very professional. I have the majority of my work already up there though, including many pieces I no longer physically own or have lost the original files to. Is it okay to send you any of these links/use these links in a promo card? I really would like some helpful advice as to what I could do to network better. Thank you very much.
