Harnessing the Power of Facebook to Build Interest in Your Band’s Website

So many startup bands have websites that remain unseen. So you might ask yourself “why have a band website?” Well, the answer is that a band website is not a standalone marketing outlet for your band. These days, any band that hopes to be successful needs to fully involve social media in its online marketing plan. One of the best (ok, the best) ways to get your band online is through the use of a Facebook page. Of course, you probably know that. But what you might not know is how you can support your band’s official website (and web store) with a Facebook page. The two mediums can go hand and hand to bring you new fans, and added income.

 Have you noticed that you are seeing updates or getting comments only from the same people lately? That’s because Facebook made a change. You only see posts from people you interact with regularly.

Musicians: Get Your Facebook Page Done Right

Today artists, bands, labels, even promoters do their marketing on Facebook. Technology has become “social” and social media can create unforeseen opportunities as a communication, distribution and sales channel. It is not easy to figure out how all this works despite there being millions of social media “consultants” and wanna-be gurus. A lot of knowledge is needed, especially in technology, design (not decoration), psychology and social science. If this expertise is lacking, misunderstandings can happen easily and the potential is wasted.

Facebook and Pages

Facebook is the dominant social network in today’s world; the site allows musicians to fully harness the power of the social graph. What? Well, I mean Facebook friends. Why? Because music is a very social vertical. You would rarely go to a concert alone. If you like a song, it is very likely you will share this experience.
