Turn your website into an effective marketing engine for your photography business.

Are you proud of your existing website? Or want to build a great one from the start?

Photo websites are often ugly & messy, they have technical problems or simply don't serve your business goals. And don't forget that your website is not meant to please you, but your audience. Your design preferences might be detrimental to your site's goals.

I'll teach you about the possibility of better, of going beyond the basic industry practices and building a truly amazing online presence that you're (finally) proud of.

You'll know precisely why and how to improve your photography website, inspire trust and attract more clients. Each course lesson covers one website-related topic at a time, with "Take action" blocks to nudge you in the right direction.

Small changes can add up to really big wins!

Simplicity and small design details

Simplifying the design of your website (and why that's important), and taking care of the small design details that turn it into inexplicably “eye-candy”.

Typography and readability

Another important user-experience factor: improving the way text content looks on your website (and how easily it can be read by your visitors).

Creating a nice “flow” through your website using CTAs, in order to improve user-experience and conversions. This lesson also includes CTA pro tips and FAQs.
