Music website launched for the Midlands

A music news, reviews, and entertainment website has been lauched in the Midlands.

Electric Banana offers media students and amateur writers an opportunity to gain music journalism experience. While offering a platform for young writers, the website also hopes to promote Midlands venues and gig promoters to an audience right across the UK.

Are there any organisations that would be able to support us? We don’t require funding, but help spreading the news would be fantastic.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.



How To Get New Fans To Your Music Website From Facebook

As a musician do you find it harder and harder to get new fans to listen your music? You’ve  probably been using social media like Facebook already to promote your music. If you are wondering if there are ways to improve your success in getting people to check out your music then you are in luck because here are 5 ways that really do work.

1. Use Facebook To Build Your Fan Base By Actually Using It For it’s Intention!

Do not make the mistake of using Facebook personal pages like many musicians used Myspace which is by treating it like a bulletin board to advertise your band. You may get banned and people will get annoyed with you or worse by just ignoring your page. The truth is most people are not interested just because you are in a band. The good news is that once new facebook friends get to know you they may find it interesting that you are in a band and want to know more. Timing is everything. Yes, this process takes longer and has to be genuine but it really works to build your fan base when people can become interested in you as a person first. Start to think of fans as friends who like your music and you will be way ahead of the game. Often times your new friends will want to help you build your fan base too as a bonus!
