This photogenic dog is a family member of my brother’s family. The kids love her greatly. In a post 2 days ago, I talked about starting a new site (within my regular site) for my enhanced animal images that I make. I take a photograph of an animal companion (this one is supplied by my brother) and put them into a field of flowers or butterflies.

Yesterday Neda responded to my post with, “Good idea. Want some suggestions for the new business? How about â€œPetprojectâ€ or â€œYourpetprojectâ€ or â€œdigi-petâ€?? Submitting these just for fun!” Thank you, Neda for being enthusiastic and having suggestions!! I appreciate your ideas!
I hadnâ€™t thought about having a new name for this part of my business. I have been using â€œEnhanced Animal Imagesâ€ for these images. I have also been using the words â€œanimal companionâ€ rather than pet to show the significance animals have to many people. What do you think? What would you like to see on a site? Maybe pet is more direct and honest. But I have a fawn and bear cub too.
But I hadnâ€™t gotten further than that. This new site it not set up yet – but I am planning to use www.dianeclancy.com/animals as the address of the new site. It may not be quite as effective as a whole different site and url, but it is more cost effective.
I would love to get your feedback on these issues. Do you think it should be clear the animal images site is part of “Diane Clancyâ€™s Art”? Or should this little site look totally different, as if it is an unrelated site? I remember when I took that day long internet workshop, the people running the workshop were marketing multiple sites for people to purchase. Of course, they showed samples of their success stories. Often people’s sites had a similar “feel” if they were marketing the same item with just a different slant.
Would it be useful to have links into my main site (as this blog does)? How about linking from my main site to this animal portrait site. (Notice that all of a sudden they are portraits …) I have a section of my main site devoted to these images. Do I leave that section there or just send people to the other enhanced animal portrait site?
Thank you for your help – again – in setting directions!
