This interactive session will feature web experts offering live critiques of musician websites submitted by members of the audience. They’ll look at the design, organization, content, and functionality of the sites. They’ll evaluate how the site fits with the artist’s overall online strategy. Our reviewers are extremely knowledgeable about best practices and deeply allergic to bad design. Reviews will be candid and thorough; don’t come with thin skin! The goal is for everyone to leave the room with tangible information on how to improve their websites.
