Website Design for Actors: Ed Diaz – Film, Television and Voice Over
As an actor, having a website is essential. It’s a great way to display your resume, headshots and contact information. Ed Diaz realized this and took the first steps toward having his own website by registering his domain name and signing up for web hosting himself. But the next step was unclear to him. He wanted a basic site that would allow him to tell the world who he was and how to get a hold of him, but he did not know anything about web design or developing. That’s when he contacted JL Designs.
The web hosting company that he signed up with offered WordPress, which is a content management system (CMS). WordPress is a very user friendly platform, but to the beginner, all the options can be a little confusing. We installed WordPress for him and completely set it up so that he did not have to worry about any of the settings. His budget was very small, so we helped him select and install a ready made WordPress template theme instead of creating one from scratch.
Ready made WordPress templates may be fine for basic sites, but they lack the individuality of a customized theme that is designed with the customer in mind. Therefore, we would not usually recommend these ready made templates unless you’re budget does not permit for a customized site.
Once the new site was setup, we loaded in basic content that the client provided for us which consisted of his resume, headshots, contact information and even a few of the movie posters from the movies he appeared in.
Ed Diaz has made several appearances in Film, Television, Commercials as well as performed Voice Overs for several projects. You can view Ed’s actor website and professional resume at www.eddiaz.info.
