This is a short but technical and detailed tutorial on how to convert an image graphic into an image map and successfully install it in a traditional website and a Wordpress site.
An image map is simply a graphic that has several, separately selected regions that link to external web pages. It can be abstract (a set geometric shapes) or a real image, such as a picture of five family members.
Image maps make websites more interesting and engaging. Rather than having a boring "Click Here" blue underlined hyperlink in your website, you can direct your visitors to the page you want by having them click an engaging image map; i.e. "Click each person for his/her bio."
Creating image maps and getting them to work can be tricky and frustrating, but after you watch this tutorial, which teaches the concepts of how image maps work and not just how to make them, you should have no problem!
I have a background in healthcare and am trained in digital marketing, having attended my first internet marketing seminar in 2002. Some of the courses I completed over the years include:

I do videography (shooting, editing and producing) primarily for online educational courses, email list building and marketing purposes. I completed the Videomaker Videography course in 2003 where I learned how to organize and plan a shoot. Afterwards, I gained more experience just by doing it.
I am proficient in YouTube marketing, Google AdWords and YouTube video ads; Facebook ads, email marketing best practices, copywriting, Wordpress blogging and affiliate marketing; particularly Amazon Affiliate marketing.
Currently, I am focusing on creating online courses on how to integrate online video with traditional email marketing platforms, and topic-specific educational videos in multiple niches.
