Frequently Asked Questions

A few of the questions I’m being asked. I’ll add more as they crop up. If you have a question, please do use the contact form to get in touch.

A: Not at all!

Although to start with I’m focussing on some digital tasks that artists may need from time to time, many will also be of interest to anyone who wants to publicise or share their work online, whatever that work is.

In due course the plan is to also offer short How-To-Videos for all manner of digital tasks, not necessarily even related to business use of any kind.

A: Just the opposite!

Of course everyone is more than welcome to watch and learn, but I’m anticipating the audience will most likely be folk who aren’t particularly interested in technology, they just know it can be useful (or is unavoidable) in many instances today.

People who enjoy learning all about technology will undoubtedly find some of the how-to-videos useful, but they’re more likely to appeal to folk who simply need to know how to get a particular digital task done (so they can then move on to the more interesting things in life!).


A: The aim here is to provide very short and simple how-to videos that just give you the information you need to complete each task; or each stage of a bigger task. No going into extraneous detail. No deep-diving into, or getting distracted by all the other things you can do.

There are lots of excellent courses out there that go through how to use a particular app, or a service, from A to Zee. It’s not my aim – certainly at this early stage – to compete with them. Indeed, if you find you do want to find out more of an app’s capabilities, I can probably point you in the right direction.

A: While I’m slowly building up a catalog of bite size how-to’s, they’ll be added to the site one by one and will be free to access.

When I feel there’s a reasonable amount of content to offer, I’ll be switching to a subscription/membership format, using Patreon, but prices will be kept low, likely starting at around $5/£4 a month.

Of course getting everything up and running here costs money! So if you’d like to chip in and help with some of the costs, please do use the Donate button further down the page. You will have my undying thanks!

A: With pleasure!

If you need a simple, clear, attractive website to publicise what you do, whether you’re an artist or not, please do get in touch.
