You want to know the real reason you absolutely need a website? Google.
Your search results (and website) are either working for or against you 24/7 and around the world!
Start treating yourself as a product in a competitive marketplace. If you want to go from "artist" to "business", you've got to show the world how you want to be seen.
Get yourself some professional representation! Stop waiting for the next job, perfect content, going the cheap route or avoiding it all together. I'll help you connect all the dots… from your Google results down to your email signature!
Perhaps you've tried Wix, Weebly or Squarespace on your own? They’re not as easy as they seem. Beyond that, having a website isn’t the same as having a website that gets results. If you’re feeling frustrated, trapped, boxed in or stuck—whether we’re talking about your website, career or with technology—I’m here to help.
You can easily create larger audiences, opportunities and offline results. I’ll show you how!

Here's What Past Students have to say...
"If you are looking for a knowledgeable, trustworthy professional to assist you in identifying and executing your brand and making your website so kick ass—then Tony is absolutely your guy. He just gets it. He is a master of the craft of online, web, seo, brand execution, and understanding your viewer. He makes clear what was once a muddy mess in my brain. Tony's services are worth the investment!!"
JJ Ignotz, New York
"Tony brings incredible insight and enthusiasm to everything he does. He's constantly exploring how he can improve his work and bring more value to his clients... what a joy to work with him!"
Allison Volk, Los Angeles
"Tony Howell is THE consummate professional artists media and brand consultant! Not only does he show you how to develop your personal brand, website, social media platforms, and email subscriber list, but also places major emphasis on what you are GIVING to your community. Tony makes the slick self marketing world human and approachable for anyone!"
Alida Michal, New York
Here's what my Private website clients say About me....
"Tony and his team delivered the website I envisioned—clean, crisp, modern, user-friendly and exciting! They’re extremely helpful once the site is launched as well as with excellent customer service, follow-up and analytics. I also love how many visitors to the site remarked at how easy this redo was to navigate. Thumbs up from everyone!"
Lea Salonga, Manila
"Tony Howell is incredible. What an asset he has become in my professional life. I was always of the mindset that someone with a career like mine didn't need a website. Oh boy, was I wrong. Tony helped me to realize that I needed the 'right' website, something especially for me. What a gift he has been—and he's the gift that keeps on giving. I literally have a place where professionals, regular people and employers who are interested in me can go learn what I'm doing and explore what I've done—all in one clean, concise, and very cool place. I only share when I think it's beneficial. Tony Howell's expertise and knowledge would benefit any artist's career. No matter the level—it'll take you higher!"
Nathan Lee Graham, New York
"It's rare to find someone who is both an intuitive, thoughtful, elegant and sensitive artist and a responsible, ethical, visionary businessperson. Extremely rare. I have worked with Tony on two different websites; one for my one person show and one for myself as a professional. In both cases, Tony was responsive, passionate and full of ideas on the one hand but also able to combine his expertise with the very individual and unique person and artist that each one of his clients represents. I don’t feel that Tony has a 'cookie cutter' mentality but instead hears, sees and really creates a new vision for each client. He does this with remarkable organization, meets (and often is done in advance of) all deadlines, sets up extremely clear goals and expectations and to top if all off, includes a way for his clients to learn how to maintain their own sites; he is a wonderful and patient teacher. I have worked with Tony for a period of three years now and every time I connect with him I always feel empowered and enlightened. Plus he makes it fun!"
Kate Fuglei, Los Angeles
"Tony is a wonderful person to work with. I have complete confidence in him, his ideas, and could not have wished for a friendlier and creative person. The ability to control my own site, to update whenever I need and have it look professional and beautiful, I could not be any happier with the process. I’ve already gotten several jobs and emails from the website—from prospective students, performances, to a show on Broadway!"
Dr. Ray Wong, New York
"Tony really understood what I was looking for. I think it is very important to work with someone who can make your vision come true instead of imposing his/her own ideas. Tony is a joy to work with. He is professional, prompt, responsive and always respectful. He has a fantastic can-do attitude. Most importantly, he listens closely to what I am looking for. It is a pleasure to work with him. His energy and enthusiasm is infectious."
Mila Atmos, New York
"Tony, Tony, Tony... he has taken such great care with me and my website and has gone above and beyond to make all the pieces come together in regards to my entire cyber footprint. Marketing? Social Media? Website? Branding? One-stop-shop right here. And he is just as excited to be a part of your future as you are about the possibilities. I am so glad I got him on my team. And we have only just begun!"
Amanda Lea LaVergne, New York
"Tony is so fast, incredibly capable and creative... he is the best. He has helped me build three different websites now and I love them all. They reflect exactly what I'm trying to do and say. I think the teaching aspect of how to navigate/integrate social media is a HUGE differentiating factor between Tony and working with another website designer. What you're getting is way bigger than a website. I'm truly psyched and couldn't be more happy."
Tricia Paoluccio, New York
"Once we started learning what Tony was doing, I realized there were so many more advantages to the current design. Everyone's been so impressed—total raves from many of the composers, producers, actors and general managers I work with, as well as friends and family. The traffic has been great to chart!"
Gabriel Barre, New York
"Tony and his team went above and beyond to make my website exactly what I wanted. It is wonderful, and magical, and I am so proud of it! You guys put heated seats and wifi in my 'Mercedes' of a website!"
Ursula Abbott, New York
"I was so impressed with all of the websites that Tony created. I knew I wanted him to design mine! I've received nothing but raves! Everyone has said how professional my website looks, how easy it is to navigate, how interesting it is when the new photos appear as you scroll down, how thorough it is..."
Kelli Rabke, New York
"Anytime I perform I want to give the audience that 'WOW' factor. It was 100% worth it to me to work with Tony and his team. They always deliver just that very thing! Immediately, people emailed me from my new website telling me how much they loved it! I also had a SERIOUS amount of 'likes' on Facebook and Instagram when we announced it. My feeling is that more and more, everything is being done online. I believe Tony and his team are right at the front (if not ahead of the game) where this is concerned. I am so happy that I went with them because now I have an amazing, one stop, landing spot that is only going to bring me good things!"
Jessica Hendy, New York
"I am thrilled to say that after years of procrastinating, I finally have website! Thank you to my dear friend Tony Howell for making JessicaLeeGoldyn.com a beautiful reality! You did a beautiful job and the experience of creating it was so easy and fun!"
Jessica Lee Goldyn, New York
"Huge thanks to Tony for putting together a sexy, sharp site for me. I can’t say enough. He made me feel like a total rock star. He went above and beyond, was so responsive and thorough, and cranked this puppy out ASAP. I highly recommend you consider him if you’re thinking about a website!"
Danni Smith, Chicago
"I chose Tony because, to put it simply, I wanted the best. Tony believes in educating and empowering everyone he builds a website for—so he gives tutorials on how to maintain your own website! Who does that?! Most website builders charge an annual fee to update or maintain your site. They literally hold you hostage! Tony isn't just about building a website. He's about building a brand and empowering the website owner."
Tonya Canady, New York
"You kept me on track. You were discerning without being judgmental, and you were funny. Perfect combination. The response has been remarkable—and it's affected my confidence level. I've gotten more auditions in the last month than I had in the last six months. I've invested in great online real estate. I'm a happy owner!"
Geraldine Leer, New York
"Tony is extremely knowledgeable and efficient. He works so fast it will make your head spin. What I admired most about him during the process was his willingness to learn something new if he felt it could help your business. He is wonderful! The responses and results have been extremely positive. I am very happy with my new sites and would recommend Tony to anyone with a vision for the very best."
Karen Parks, New York
"Hiring Tony was the best investment I made in my business as an artist. Tony helped me to clarify and create my brand. He not only has the superb technical skills but also the intuition and passion to create a website that says who you are, why you exist and how you add value to your tribe. I love how he made this a collaborative effort. Tony is a heart-centered, online presence innovator and client clarity producer. This experience became a self-revealing journey that helped me to recognize and acknowledge my accomplishments. It provided me with a sense of renewal and helped me to laser focus on my dreams. My booking rate has increased and I'm attracting organic projects as a result of working with Tony and his amazing team!"
Sheilah Smiley, New York
"Tony gave me so much attention, guidance, instruction, and advice. The amazing part of the process was learning so much! I sat with Tony for two hours for an incredible in-depth master class and he made me a library of videos that I continue to use as my reference when I need to update my website! I'm so grateful for his geyser of creativity and the depth and reach of his facility with technology. Tony's a kind and encouraging teacher and truly a Social Media Master!"
Paula Plum, Boston
"I just had my website done by Tony. He was so professional and incredibly helpful with every detail from start to finish. As a social media novice, I needed a lot of assistance and he graciously provided it. I would highly recommend him as a website designer. He's great!"
Debra O'Connell, Boston
"Your work speaks for itself—every one of your websites has ease of use and a reflection of the individual or business represented. I’ve had a number of folks tell me that my website really reflects who I am, which is exactly what I wanted. I’ve also received a lot of comments about the clean, modern lines and its ease of use. Working to refine how you want to represent yourself requires a lot of self-reflection. You were there to help me work through that process and execute our shared vision. It was incredibly efficient, informative and empowering."
Heather Townsend, Chicago
"A great website shares a clear sense of the person, product or service with
manageable information (not sensory overload) and ease of navigation. I felt that you had my back. You very clear in what you offered, how the process would go, and what you needed from me. I also felt that with your expertise you would come up with ideas that I wouldn’t think to think of. I was right. Working with you was delightful! You answered all questions along the way and were fun to work with! I’ve gotten great feedback from those who have checked it out. My manager really likes it!"
Diane Chernansky, Los Angeles
"I tried to do my own website and nothing was happening. I always thought I would get around to it when I had free time… I never did. Tony made the process super easy and totally fun! Once we talked about the look and feel, it just took off from there. It was exciting to get the updates, make edits and see it all come together. I was sad when we launched. I wanted to keep going!"
Jacob Brent, Winchester
"I had a sense that you could help me organize my content in a way that would be tailored to my personal needs instead of a general template or cookie cutter presentation. I learned a lot from the experience and felt I was given all the tools I needed to not only develop the site with you, but also keep building on it once our time together was done. So far, everyone has been very excited about the new site and specifically commented on how easy it was to navigate and how professional it feels."
Ioana Alfonso, New York
"You had your act together 110%. The process was fun, and surprisingly more in depth than I was expecting (in a good way). That beginning paperwork was extremely helpful—you’re excellent at channeling people’s desires and guiding them towards their goals. Also, your work is gorgeous. I feel extremely confident sharing my online presence now."
Jordan Gaches, New York
"I wanted to collaborate with a strong and facile mind that didn't work like mine. I chose you. Honestly, I was a little sad when we launched. I actually had that feeling I used to have when I completed a particularly great directing project when I would look up at my collaborators and say, 'That was cool! What else can we do?'"
Christopher Gurr, New York
"I have absolutely loved working with Tony during this whole process. He has been so patient with my questions and guiding me along in compiling all of my materials and always available for check ins. Our meeting was nothing short of wonderful, he took me through all the steps for everything and we launched my site preview together! He then helped me manage all of my social media! Couldn't be happier with this experience."
Erin Elizabeth Eichhorn, New York
"It was actually an eye opening experience! I learned that we as actors can be neurotic and so concerned with self-image that we get in our own way sometimes. We accomplish so much, and yet we’re afraid to acknowledge it in fear of what others may say. I’ve heard nothing but wonderful feedback on my website. I’ve yet to use all the features, but managing it has been easier than I anticipated and that’s truly due to the diligence of Creative Social Media. They design their sites so that the power to represent yourself is in your hands... and that’s where the power truly lies."
Jamaal Wilson, Melbourne
"Tony is a social media expert on Backstage, which is where I discovered him. After reading his articles, watching his #TellMeTony videos and visiting his website, I knew Tony was the one for me. Tony made the process of creating a website so easy and helped me create my place on the web. I am thrilled with my website and with Tony. He is direct, creative, professional and trustworthy. Not only did Tony deliver a beautiful, well crafted website but he exceeded my expectations all the way around."
Mindee De Lacey, Los Angeles
"You and your team are rock stars. You get it, you’re smart, and I like creating with you guys. I’m happy, my team is happy that represent me, and that’s what matters."
Mark Price, New York
"The process took longer than I thought, but that was my doing. I was slow to do my homework and turn it in. In the end, the website looks fantastic. I’m very pleased with it and it’s getting me more work! It has the professional look that my career needs to move it up the ladder of success. I’m now getting booked for roles without even auditioning. I’ve had CD’s check out my site and then offer me the work. Woohoo!"
Kelly L. Moran, Washington, D.C.
You may wonder...
+ Will this be too advanced for me?
If you can log into our "FaceTime" classes, you can absolutely do this. I'm going to do the heavylifting and have private sessions to give you any additional support needed!
+ Will my website look that good?
It should! With your permission, I will freely offer you my professional design opinions. As I said before, I'm committed to helping you achieve the same results as if I was doing this all for you!
+ Is this really all I need?
Honestly... yes. I'm seeing website strategy evolve from a portfolio of "here's everything I've ever done" to a simple "here's what's next." This keeps your website current and also helps direct people to your email or social media to learn more!
+ What if I miss a class?
All classes will be recorded and emailed out after.
+ What if I’m getting new photos or videos?
You can add them later! Know that, like your craft and career, your website will never be finished or perfect. It should always be growing... so let's get it going!
+ Can I add on later?
Absolutely! I'll teach you how to continue to add, edit and refine your website.
Do know that this is also level one—building a sexy and smart one-page website that shows up on Google, mobile and gets results. I plan to roll out a level two course later this spring—building a larger, more robust, multi-page website... but you may not need to go larger!
+ What if I’m not happy?
If you're not happy by the end of the course, I will happily refund your money, minus the $60 I pay to Squarespace. If I don't deliver the value, I don't deserve your money!
