We’ve made some noteworthy updates in the past few months that we wanted to share. You may have missed them in between shows and writing and rehearsing, so here’s a recap!
Put your website into maintenance mode
Are you getting started with your music website, but don’t want anyone to see it just yet? Or perhaps you’re redesigning your website to match your new album, and want it appear under construction in the meantime.
In order to hide your website from view, but leave your .com address active, you can put it into maintenance mode while you make quick updates. Just head to your site-wide settings area, and adjust the title, message, and colors. Then your website will be hidden from view until you’re ready to re-launch!
Add subscriptions seamlessly
If you’ve been toying with the idea of adding fan club subscriptions to your website, but aren’t sure where to start, we’ve added a setup wizard to walk you through the initial steps. Choose the ‘Help me set up my subscription area’ option to get started.
You can choose your rewards and have your text, and page navigation, pre-filled for you. This will create a simple menu structure that will organize your subscriptions area, andshould make it easier for you to get down to the real work - adding the subscription rewards for your fans!
New payment options
Stripe now allows you to accept Google Pay and Apple Pay (for mobile payments). This means there are more ways than ever for your fans to contribute to your crowdfunding campaign, or buy your music and merch, commission-free.
Additional 301 redirect options
Moving over to Bandzoogle? You may want to check out our updated redirect options. A 301 redirect is used to make sure that search engines, and your website visitors, are sent to a specific page. Rather than wait until Google reindexes your site, adding a 301 redirect will make sure that your links keep working in search results.
You can also use a 301 redirect to create URLs that are different from the page-name structure. In your site-wide settings, you’ll enter in your old site link, and choose a destination to redirect that to - it can now be any url, a page on your website, or a file.
We hope one (or more!) of these updates will be beneficial to you as a musician. We’re always working on improving our platform, and there are many more things to come.
