I am a speaker/hip hop artist/poet. I often present with the idea of "entertainment and teaching." I specialize in working with at-risk youth populations, especially foster and adoptive youth. My own personal story of growing up in the system resonates well with these populations. I also occasionally share my stories at high schools and colleges. My current goal is to bring my stories and messages of succeeding against all odds to every alternative high school and foster care conference in the country (and hopefully pick up some more high schools and colleges along the way). So far, I've managed to hit these populations in 6 different states...now I need a web site that will help me reach my goal of every state.
The cool thing about what I do is that along this path I have met some really awesome people. I've invited some of them to join my quest and with a few added artists and presenters I have decided to start an agency called Changing Lives Entertainment (Change Lives At Your Event!). When I am working with high schools, colleges, conferences and event coordinators I want to be able to show off the great people I work with on my agency's web site. To do so, it seems like a great idea to have a profile of each person or group. Kind of like the the simplicity of a Facebook profile, but in a way that showcases each person's talents well. On each presenter's page I would like to include a section for photos, bio, testimonials, presentation topics, maybe some interesting facts, and a promo video if one is available for each person. To be cost effective, the presenter pages might not need to be too code-heavy or intricate. Although I have other artists/presenters that I work with, my personal presenter/artist page as Travis Lloyd will be the main page promoted on the site and will need a little more development. Once a structure is set for presenter pages it can be replicated for each person with updated info. There are only 3-5 people for this. My domain [url removed, login to view] will forward to my profile page on the new web site.
The site in general will need a blog that can be updated. My first thought is to have the blog stream be on the home page. This will allow updates from anyone to be easily posted on the page while enhancing SEO. I would like for the site to also be designed with a marketing focus similar to the Store section in iTunes...this has a banner that has a few other small banners to its right and the large one rotates through the smaller ones. An event calendar that is easily updated would be nice as well.
My idea is to have a sleek professional design and keep it youth friendly and somewhat interactive with things like a YouTube gadget and Twitter feeds, etc. Although it will be a professional site, I want it to feel very approachable with marketing and selling in mind and not a "corporate" vibe. So, things like "Share" buttons should be available for facebook/twitter/linked in and I would like social networking sites made easily available with logo images that link directly to them. I also feel that it is important to have 2-3 spots that are chosen for smaller advertisements and at least one area should be an area where a quote can be displayed. I would like to have different quotes rotate each time a page is clicked.
The main tabs that I have in mind are:
HOME/ABOUT (presentation topics listed and info about the agency on home page..and possibly a welcome/promo video with a collaborative twitter or facebook stream from everyone in the agency and the blog that can double as news feed)
MEDIA (videos, event photos, music, press)
SPEAKERS/ARTISTS (with sub headings for each speaker/artist page)
TESTIMONIES (list of testimony quotes and some testimony videos
CONTACT - Contact form, but also a listed company number and email. Maybe the event calendar could go here to
