As a songwriter you’ve spent a lot of time crafting your stories into songs. Now it’s time to get them out to the world. The first step is to create a professional website so your songs have a place to live.
The most important website page for a songwriter is the Homepage, followed by a great bio. Using the Vesper website template, Bandzoogle member Sarah Siskind does an excellent job with both pages. Sarah adds all the essential elements to her Homepage like a great pro header image, mailing list sign-up form, and visual links to her songwriting page. With song placements on MTV, HBO and Lifetime it’s a great idea to display that on your homepage.
Another must-have is a great bio and Sarah has this on her About page. At the top she has a great slideshow feature with quotes from the artists she’s worked with. Then a nice long bio and some info on her latest album as a solo artist. If you scroll just a bit further down she has a more extensive bio which is great for media and industry professionals to use in blogs and press features.
Bandzoogle member Lacy Green is a full-time staff writer for a notable Nashville publishing company, but also a gigging musician.
Lacy shows us another example of a nice Homepage. Using our Manhattan website template, she has a great header image, and keeps her fans up-to-date with tour dates and a blog.
Another Bandzoogle member doing big things in the industry is Academy Award winning composer Donald Markowitz.
Besides his success in songwriting for Disney and other fantastic projects, he has also composed tracks for several commercials.
To exhibit his work, he’s created a nice, organized videos page. Adding video to your pages allows your audience to connect in a more visual way.
Even when you have a lot of projects, you can still set up a nice clean website. Songwriter, Multi-Instrumentalist, and Record Label owner Brendan Lucas has hit the right balance of this on his website.
Featuring our newest template Prismatic for his design, he let’s his professional image set the tone for the simple, yet sleek website.
When you’ve done a lot to be proud of you want to show it off. A great way to do this is with a Discography page.
With built-in in Videos, Photo slideshow, and image features, it’s a breeze to create an organized layout. This allows you to display all of your projects and link them to other pages if you’d like.
Member Joe West has written songs for many notable artists like Tim McGraw, Keith Urban and Toby Keith. When you work with so many great artists like Joe has, it’s fun for fans to see that on a Photos page. Here you can upload studio photos, gig photos, and even fan photos.
In addition to making hits, Joe’s also in a band of his own. He’s done a great job with his store page. You can easily buy his CD, individual songs, t-shirts and autographed photos. With our built in Store feature it’s easy for members to sell merch in different styles, sizes and colors all without having to leave the website.
As you can see these successful songwriters have made the most out of their websites. Using Bandzoogle’s built-in tools you can have a similar site up and running in no time. For more design inspiration, check out our Website Examples page and the Beautiful Website Templates category of our blog.
