Why do you need to refresh your browser and clear your cache?

We get this question A LOT when developing websites for our clients. Especially when there are lots of revisions throughout the process. The reason you need to refresh your browser and/or clear your browser’s cache is because every time you visit a website, the content is being stored on your computer. If you’re not seeing changes that have been made to your site, there’s a pretty good chance that you’re viewing the older stored version of the site – not the site as it actually exists online. When in doubt, if you’re not seeing changes that have been made, the first troubleshoot you should try is to refresh your browser and clear your cache.

I have a lot of Demos, How many is Too Many?

Great! We will happily put as many as 10 demos on your One Page Voiceover Site, as part of the package price. If you have even more than that, there’s just a $5 charge per additional track. Not too bad, eh? We do not recommend, however, plastering your website with dozens of demos just because you can. You want to be sure to showcase your best work, so choosing a select few that really promote your voiceover talents is more beneficial than including all of the demos you’ve ever recorded in your life.

I don’t have my demo yet, Can you still build my Website?

Your demo is the most important part of your voiceover marketing materials, and we always recommend having a demo, or be in the process of getting one, well in advance before we build your website. If you are looking to get a One Page Voiceover Site, it is crucial that we have your demo before beginning the design process. Because we focus on creating websites that effectively and accurately represent you as an artist, much of this comes from listening to your demo(s). Our head designer pays close attention to your vocal qualities, and creates a design that complements not only your voice, but also your specific target market. Your website will ultimately showcase you, your voice, and what you have to offer for a specific niche.

If you do not yet have have a demo professionally recorded, we recommend Edge Studio.

Why can’t I update and edit my own sound clips, and videos?

There are two reasons only ArtistUpgrade can edit these elements of your site: Technology and Integrity.

The Good News:
Every element we use on your website has to be approved by both the client and the designer. You’re coming to us for professional design and we take our work seriously. If we allowed our clients to whimsically upload any and all media elements to their website, the professional integrity of the work could be (and often is) lost. Most images that are posted to your ArtistUpgrade website have been edited in some way by our designers (be it color-correction, resizing, retouching, and more) to create a powerful brand image. All elements work together to create a strong marketing message that results in an original design just for you. If one visual element changes, there is a ripple effect that all the other elements will need to be adjusted as well.

The Other Good News: You CAN edit your text-based information from any computer connected to the internet and also upload and label photos to your photo galleries. Any future edits you need to make to your sound clips and videos are only an email or phone call away! We’ve developed a fast and hassle free system to keeping your site current. Simply email your edits along with any images, sound clips, and videos to updates@artistupgrade.com and your edits will be complete within 24 hours. Not only that, but we also offer rush editing for clients who need updates pronto!!
