Peter McDowell and Ari Salomon of PerformSites believe in the necessity of access to effective, attractive, functional web sites for performing and visual artists. McDowell (a veteran of 20 years experience in arts management) and Salomon (a web designer and developer for 15 years) have teamed up since 2009 seeking to provide a low-cost, high quality option in web marketing for artists by creating over two dozen web sites for artists and by training them how to update and maintain their new sites.
PerformSites develops sites exclusively using the WordPress content management system. One of the many great things about WordPress web sites is that they are works in progress, meaning they can be easily added to and refined. Design and content creation packages that we offer are reasonably priced and can be scaled to fit most budgets. The sites are completely modular and user friendly, meaning the user can update pages, posts, images, menus, songs, and video, without needing to know HTML.
