Entertainment & The Arts
Two identities that I will (likely) merge into one website: 1) Vocal expert for contemporary singing, published author, and Professor of Voice at Berklee College of Music. I have a youtube channel: thevocalgenie. 2) Pro vocalist, songwriter, musician, performer in soul/funk/singer-songwriter/jazz. My target audience is international, anyone who sings or wants to learn how, both professional and beginner; book and ebook readers interested in how to sing; my youtube audience; groups who hire me to travel to them and teach workshops and perform; folks who listen to world-class music in soul/jazz/grooves styles; anyone who needs a seasoned pro teach them how to work with a band and sound great; self-accompanying singer-songwriters. I will also have a blog page with regular tweets etc. The new site name will be jeanniegagnemusic.com
I have two: http://jeanniegagne.com and http://thevocalgenie.com
Cleaner! jeanniegagne.com is way too busy and hard to navigate, while thevocalgenie.com focuses too much on my youtube videos. I want my home page to be impactful, and lead visitors to click through the different pages. Colors: I am thinking about a white background with pictures and text to bring in color. I want each page to be new, but to match the homepage thematically. Also the information and links should be easy to use, while there needs to be enough info to illustrate my 30 years of experience, books, lessons, travel. Drop down menus are good for this. So, I want a basic nav bar at the top that makes it easy to find exactly what you're looking for on my site. My studio where Vocal Genie videos are filmed is pumpkin-orange and light turquoise. More on color: Orange conveys happiness, freedom, creativity, playfulness and confidence. (My favorite color is salmon-coral) White symbolizes purity, peace, and youth: neural, clean. Blue suggests honesty, trustworthiness, calming. Green invites feelings of nature, growth, and regeneration. (My other favorite color is blue-green. Think southwest/island colors) Clear type is important, such as one of the main 4-5 websites use. Keep the mouse-over link colors blue per the standard without underlining. I also like a subtle, curvy design in maybe 10-15% grey on the background page, such as Bob Stoloff has. I built thevocalgenie with WordPress and update both sites. I use hostgator for that site, but I have a private web host for jg.com. I need to be able to have access to my website at all times to update as needed, or to modify. I have been building a new site myself in WordPress with a purchased theme, but I would probably do better to hire a professional who has strong graphic design, and a strong sense of internet marketing, combining sales with the arts. I have been researching what works best for this and have ideas about where to place things on the home page to encourage click-throughs. I am also considering whether to maintain two separate websites, or create one that links to a different site for my two areas of professional life. The ratio of teaching to performing will be about 60:40, or 75:25.
Essentials: social media, logo, contact info, search, ability to link to different content on the site. Pictures, but not the same ones on each page. Consistency between pages without being duplicates. The basic home page should make it easy to direct customers to more information and products within the site. I also need links to a shopping cart for the products on each page, and an easy link to click through to the other products. Upper right corner is essential for success. We can discuss what feature goes there, such as search bar, contact info...
What to avoid
Needs to be creative but not silly, clean but not too corporate. Think high calibre music + self-help + use my products and become very successful at singing! Not too dark for background. No flash. Avoid cluttered pages.
(What happened to jeanniegagne.com? Yikes! It's never been messed up before. Sorry about that.) Once I have selected a designer I can show you what I started on my revamped site, it's not live yet. Or I can send you screen shots by email. As I mentioned I need to be involved, especially afterwards for regular maintenance, so the design needs to be something I can work with. CSS is good but I'm not a coder, so I'd need the ability to communicate to the designer when/if I need to adjust the CSS as my needs evolve. I have many pictures, I'm uploading quite a few. Of course we will work together to select final pictures, but these will get the design started. I work in PhotoShop and should have all my pictures available in that format. Any graphics or composite pictures here have all done by me. That should be enough info for now! Please email me if you need help narrowing it down. Thank you for your creativity!
