Google is the first place you should turn to when you’re in need. Google is your friend. I know I talk a lot about getting your art noticed, but I tend to shy away from the more technical topics. I may have gotten my own website up and running, but that doesn’t mean I can teach a large audience to do it too. It’s more specialized than that.
But who can teach you? Google!
So when you’re struggling to figure out techy mumbo jumbo, don’t hunt for a tech guy. Don’t pay someone to do it. From websites to social media platforms to Etsy, Google can answer your questions.
Let me give you a ‘for instance’. When I was setting up this website, I couldn’t figure out how to incorporate a shopping element in a way I liked. I tried countless “shopping carts” thinking that was the direction I needed to head in. But when I googled “adding ecommerce to wordpress” I discovered the perfect solution within the first page of search results.
So remember, when the going gets tough and you can’t figure out how to set up your Paypal account, just head to Google.
