Why Carrd?During my experience in the fandom I’ve seen a lot of artists trying to build a website using a bunch of web builders. The most frequent problem I’ve seen on this website are mostly lack of design, due to lack of experience or a limited builder, and even worse, a giant banner of self-promotion, which, it can be annoying if you’re trying to look professional. Through all these free platforms, Carrd to me looked like the most complete one, with a lot of free features, possibilities of expansion for a low price and a non invading banner of self promotion.Why shouldn’t I do it on my own?You SHOULD do it on your own, give it a try and take your approach to the web building world. This will help you get a rough idea about how the builder works, other than giving you the possibility to get a base of your design. The real problem eventually is not the cost of the service or the experience, but mostly the cost of your time, so make sure to measure how long it takes for you to get to a result that satisfies you, and valutate if it’s worth the effort of if it’s better to get some external help, in order not waste your time.What are the limits?Currently, Carrd free plan limits you to 50 “elements”, which is kinda hard to translate, but to put it in simple terms, it’s a good amount for a classic website with even multiple pages.Which package is right for my needs?Smart: this is a good, if not a perfect start, I will build your website using the basic function of the free plan of Carrd, based on your necessities.
Advanced: if you want to look a bit professional with this package I can help you setup a custom domain, managing configuration and the external service provider.
Professional: here we go in more professional web designer territory, we won’t use Carrd but WordPress to build a fully working website, this may involve cost from external (but needed) services like hosting and domain, but it will leave you with a fully working professional website. Here we’ll need to discuss in advance what work we’ll need to be done and stipulate a contract.What is a References website?Like in the example provided, a references website is a place where you can put all the references for your character to then link to artists, so you can provide a fully organized library of content for them to reach, cutting down time in commissions, errors and giving direct access to any content the artist might need for your commission.What is a Badges website?Think of it like a Linktree… but way better and personalized. This is a website you can put on a QR code like behind your badge, for people to scan it and directly access all your social links, information (example: pronouns/region/spoke languages/etc…), giving such a way better presentation, like no other!What material do I have to provide for the website?I usually work with a shared account made on purpose for a project:
Gmail address (so common email and drive space where to host all the files)
Carrd account (if required by the chosen plan)
All the images you want to use for the website (and where you want to put them!)
If needed, copy (so text/descriptions/T.O.S., etc…) to put on the website.
Since we’re going to use accounts made only for the project, I won’t have to ask you for personal information, yet you’ll keep access to everything if you need/want to modify something by yourself.For any other question you might have, feel free to contact me and ask!
