Is music your passion? Are you working solo or in a group? Whether you are in a professional orchestra or a songwriter singing in pubs with your guitar, is it easy to find you on the web? Why not take the time to create a website to increase your notoriety? It could surely help you become more popular! Many musicians already did their website with WebSelf.

Why a Website?

There are many reasons why music groups or musician should have their website. First, it increases your credibility. You will look a lot more professional if you have a real website than if you only have a Facebook page. Unfortunately, we need to tell you that the MySpace’s era is over. Take this opportunity to include your story and a presentation. Moreover, a website is useful because it allows you to regroup all relevant information in one place. Thus, although having a place where to present all our upcoming shows, you could add some excerpts, videos or even your merchandise. It is a better option that will allow you to be found more quickly too.

Do you need a webpage to present your album or your EP? It is also possible to use WebSelf to create a landing page. For those who are not familiar with this term, a landing page is a webpage often minimalist used for conversions. In sum, we use this tool to direct a customer to do something precise like listening to a song, watching a video, subscribing to a newsletter or buying tickets for an event.

A Few Things to Remember When Creating Your Website

Did you know that it is possible to add videos or music files to your WebSelf website? You should take this opportunity to present what you do. Make sure, however, to use videos or pictures of good quality for more impact. If you give shows, it would be relevant to have a place with your next events and how we can get tickets. It is indeed something your visitors could look for on your website. Otherwise, do not forget to link your social media to your website and vice versa so people can follow you more easily.
