Yamile Yemoonyah

Websites & Marketing for Artists

So I decided to sell my art online instead of offline. I set up my first website and began to learn everything about WordPress, social media, SEO and all the other stuff you need to know to run a successful online business.

Then I started sharing what I had learned on my blog and people came to me for help.

First I helped a few artist friends for free and they recommended me to their friends who became my first paying customers.
