Creating a Website for Musicians

   0   43

In the modern world, it is important that musicians have their own websites. That is, of course, if they seek that kind of exposure. It is perfectly fine if you want to try to get your music out there through different means, but having a website is an advantage you shouldn’t pass on. And it doesn’t even cost that much to make one and run if you think about it. Of course, if you want to spend a lot of money, there are ways to do that, but a good website can be made for the cost of a few hundred dollars, and even less if you are skilled in making them.

There are basically two things your website needs to do, and that is make you money, and spread the word of your music to the masses and make you new fans. And that’s it. Nothing more, nothing less, and your website is doing exactly what it is supposed to do.

And there’s a tried and tested way in getting yourself in the right position for those things to happen.

You need to get a domain name

Probably the easiest and simplest way of registering your domain name is through GoDaddy. There are a few things you should mind. Think about not having any slashes or underscores when registering your domain name, it would be best to go for a simple (dot)com. Also, getting a domain name which is a match to the URL on your social media platforms is a great move, because it will help your fans find all your stuff more easily.

You need to choose the build of your website

There are basically two main ways in which you can choose to build your website. You can either hire a professional to do it, or you can do it yourself. We suggest doing it yourself. Hiring a pro can do a lot for your website, but it most often costs a lot of money. Learning a bit and educating yourself, and then doing it yourself is a cheaper way, and you have more creative freedom.

Design your homepage

Your homepage is usually the first thing your visitors see, and it needs to be designed well. It needs to summarize your music and what you are all about. Keep it simple and neat, but attractive enough so visitors want to explore your website further when they land on it.

Blogging and musicians

By creating a blog, you are giving yourself a great way to connect and communicate with your fanbase, and it is one of the best ways of building your brand. It’s also a really good creative outlet.

Contact info

On a final note, you should think about leaving your contact info somewhere on your website so your fans can get in touch with you. An email would be great, so if someone wants to contact you, they can find a way on your website.
