Artspan / Jewelspan Newsletter
edited by Claire Adas 


Newsletter: September

We hope everyone had a happy and creative summer! We've been busy here at Artspan, getting your work out there with collections, interviews and articles, and making important technical changes behind the scenes.


Mobile Templates

Why it’s important to switch to mobile-friendly templates:

  1. More people access the Internet via mobile and phone than desktop: the difference is increasing!
  2. Many people only use phone or tablets to access the Internet.
  3. Half of mobile internet research starts with Google and other search engines.
  4. Google results favor sites that are responsive in its results.

It’s easy to switch: just log in to your Control Panel and click on Website Design. Then follow the prompts. 

If you would like a little help,  let us know, we havea a lot of experience converting old sites to new ones. Contact [email protected]
