Are you trying to look like a professional music artist?
A great way to do this is to create your own website. Many have been asking us lately how to start one up and in today’s blog, we will give you the basics to start one up. You can either create the website yourself, which will be cheaper, or you can get a professional to create one for you.
Yes, you will have to spend money, but they will end up getting a much professional look for you and make you stand out from the crowd.
The first step is to HAVE A PLAN!!!!
Plan out what you want your website to look like and where you want everything to go.You want things like your Bio, a place where they can listen/buy your music, blog, upcoming shows, pictures, graphic header, etc…
If you are having a hard time with this part, think of you most favorite artist right now and check out their website. This will give you some idea of the things you can put on your website. After your done planning the next thing you need to do is to buy a domain name.

From there you need someone to design your website. We highly suggest getting a professional to do it because creating one yourself is a pain in the butt and doesn’t look so great. That is how our website started off, and we learned quickly that it is better to get someone who knows what they are doing.
How do you find your web host?
At the bottom of every website, it will usually show who has done their website. So maybe you stumble upon a really amazing website, and you are looking for something similar. Just scroll down to the bottom of the page and usually, it will say who did the design.

You will then talk to one of them about your plan. Make sure you set your mailing list up on your website, so your fans can join. You need a pop up opt-in. If you are not sure how to do this, ask your web host if they can help you set it up.
