Official Website for Music Marketing and Promotion

Filed under: General Musings — ian @ 10:49 pm

This week I was lightly scammed by Jacco Wijnia of Positive Pose (a crap fusion band who I assume is from Barneveld, Gelderland, Netherlands) who is a 20y.o. music (muzikant) student at The Dutch Rock Academy which is fronted by finger lickin’ good Gerard Boontjes. Under the guise of doing an interview, Jacco Wijnia asked me some questions to help him with his homework - as if I haven’t got enough trouble with my eight year old son’s, we’re doing the bloody Vikings!

But, out of the darkness came light in the form of the words "Gerard Boontjes Official Website"!

Revival Of The Official Artist Website - Music to my ears (a good read). A digital renaissance by Martin J. Thörnkvist. Do you know, it’s funny how words seem to stick in ones head while surfing the ‘net - "Official Website"

Jacco Wijnia is doing Music Marketing and Promotion today, and had he been more up front with me I would have been able to tell him; at the heart of a band’s successful marketing and promotion campaign should be their website, a networking style profile page just isn’t good enough, plus, owning your own website demonstrates to the music industry professionals and your fans, Credibility, Control and Professionalism, and if that’s not enough, I’ve written 101 Reasons Why Your Band Needs A Website - I didn’t do that in a day.

If you are in a band, get yourselves an official website, and make it your Hub. Setup accounts in: Bebo, Facebook, iLike, iMeem, Last.FM, MySpace, ReverbNation, Twitter, Virb and YouTube. Send your new found fans, friends and followers to your website - to gain more exposure, to ply your marketing acumen, to demonstrate your creative and artistic talents.

Go to the top of the class,
Unsigned Band Promotion
~ helping musicians and artists get their websites noticed by fans, search engines
and the music industry in half the time they could do it on their own ~
