You're loaded up on MySpace - tons of friends and fans with pictures from your most recent shows, flyers for your next tour, and comments from the peanut executive email list gallery on everything from the outfit you wore last week to the person you just broke up with. But as much as this is working, it's limiting. Hugely limiting.With your own website, your band goes to executive email list the next level. First, there's the credibility. MySpace is for basement bands, kids who practice after school when their drummer isn't grounded. When you have your own website, you executive email list can actually be a basement band with a drummer under perpetual house arrest, but to the rest of the world, you are a professional group of serious musicians, each member with an email address that includes your band's name.
Include a link to your website in every email you executive email list send out, list it at the bottom of flyers, put it on business cards and attach it to the demo CD you send out to record companies. Reviewers can get information about you from your site and, in turn, executive email list you can post comments they print. Give bios of the band members and ways to contact you. List lyrics to your songs and tour schedules. The more you have on your website, the more street executive email list cred you get - and anything is better than a little spot on MySpace.
Next, there's the possibilities. What can't you have executive email list when you've got your own website? You can sell your new album, t shirts in a variety of styles, hats, posters, patches, pins. You can upload samples of your songs, making a pseudo-demo executive email list tape available for fans, club owners, recording executives, and potential agents to listen to. Have a variety of forums for your fans to meet each other, get rides to shows, ask you questions, discuss executive email list your music - all conveniently separated into categories that would be impossible in the endless list of comments on MySpace.
