Step – 4 Some Other Considerations

Written by Admin on March 13, 2008 – 7:21 am -

Do Not Use MySpace.com as your Website

MySpace is an unbelievable music-marketing tool and a great starting point, but it’s only a starting point. If you just have a MySpace page you will not be taken seriously as a professional band.

Your Website should have more information than can fit on just one page. Use MySpace to make friends and drive traffic to your web site.

Obey the “8 second rule”

If your web pages do not load within 8 seconds, most visitors get frustrated, and move on to other pages or sites.

Think about how long you wait for a page to load. Count the next time, I bet it’s not more than 5 or 6 seconds and that’s if you really want to see what’s on the page.

Use SPELL CHECK

Sure, you’re excited to share with the world your each and every musical endeavor. It is the very reason why you continue to browse through this report. Everyone is guilty of disregarding the use of SPELL CHECK from time to time, but it is an integral factor that mustn’t be overlooked! It doesn’t stop at spell checking either. Proof read the content of your web pages to make sure that you don’t miss the little things. I am guilty of this a lot. For example, using “You” instead of “Your.” Little things like this can be very damaging and will display a grossly low level of professionalism to your current and potential customers. Your Website is your band’s novel. It mustn’t include grammatical errors or the improper use of the English language. It is absolutely preposterous!

Web Counters

No more web counters! Stop putting those little mileage-readout type thing’s on your sites. They were cool in 1996, but they are stupid and can be quite embarrassing too. Almost every single web host company provides detailed visitor information that you can use.

CONCLUSION

Creating a great looking, easy to navigate Website is a necessity for any musician who is serious about making money with their music. It is a responsibility that every artist and band must commit to now! There is more competition now then ever before, but it is also a very exciting time for determined and dedicated musicians to make a lasting impression with their music.

If you ever have any problems building your Website the right way, please feel free to send me an e-mail any time to lee@porkpiepublicity.com. I would be more than happy to help.

REMEMBER: YOU MUST CREATE REASONS FOR YOUR FANS TO RE-VISIT YOUR SITE!
