Beginner’s Guide

Welcome to our Beginner’s Guide section where we hope to share plenty of practical advice and how-to guides.

We’ll be adding to the guide as we go and recommend you subscribe to the site to get updated whenever we add a new post.

Tools We Use

Building a website

Free

  1. WordPress.com – Get a free address at “yourbandname.wordpress.com”. It’s not the most professional, but it’s free!

Paid (DIY)

  1. WordPress.org – Download the free “self hosted” version of WordPress
  2. Bluehost.com – buy cheap hosting (there are others out there, but we use bluehost)
  3. Themeforest.net or WordPress.org for some themes to sexy up your site.

Paid (easy)

  1. Page.ly provide a hosted WordPress service – similar to all of the DIY but they make it super easy for under $20/mo

 There are other paid options out there, but we build all of our artist’s websites with WordPress.

Selling Your Music

  1. Tunecore – Submit your music to iTunes, Spotify and dozens more and keep 100% of the royalties
  2. CDBaby – Ditto!

We mostly use tunecore, but CD baby is cool too.
