Your website is your online home. All your best content, from your bio to your music, should be organized nicely across your pages. You have your own domain name, and people can find you there. It’s a presence that you control completely.
As part of your online strategy, once you’ve built your music website, add social media icons to your pages. This offers a way for your website visitors to discover your music on other digital platforms. They can also connect with you on social networking sites.
Social media icons are important to have to help grow your overall online presence. To achieve a clean, uncluttered look, add the ones that you are most active on, but not too many in one place.
To help with this, we’ve improved the look and feel of the social media icons - called ‘My Sites’ icons. You can add social media links site-wide (so they appear on every page once you add them), or page by page. This update applies to the page-by-page feature - so you can customize the look of your icons on any of your pages.
By default when you add the new social media icons, they will take on a flat color determined by each networking platform’s branding.
You can go with this, or set them to match the other buttons (the play button, for example) on your website. You can also choose to change the icons to all black, or all white. To completely match your website branding, try using a custom color that you’ll select from a color wheel (you can input the exact hue by using a hex code).
To give your website page a fresh look, switch your social media icons shape without having to re-add them. You can try the circle or square options to see how they look on the page. You can also try both circle or square with an outline to see how that suits your website’s design.
Alignment and sizing
Once you’ve settled on the colors and shape of your social media icons, place them where you’d like on the page. You can adjust the sizing up to 100px to make them larger or smaller. You can then set the feature alignment to the left, center, or right side of the page.
Using the My Sites feature
Adding your social media icons to your music website can come in handy in a few ways. For example:
Add all of the streaming platforms where your music is available to your Music page
Add your most popular social media platforms to your EPK page
Add your most actively used social media platforms to your Contact page
Add your Facebook or Instagram icon to a live streaming or Events page
Try customizing your social media or music icons to give your website a fresh, modern look. We hope you love the new options for your social media icons!
