And I’ve drug out the “cute puppy” ploy to get your attention!
You see, I released my new album a couple of weeks ago but being the “one-stop shop” that independent labels are, we ran out of time (*and money) to get the website built and current for the release! So, now that the album is out, Lisa and I are working on making some updates to the website and I am here to ask for your help… complete with pleading puppy dog eyes….
Yes, we know it’s a mess right now but before we make a bunch of changes we want to make sure we are meeting your current needs & what you look for when you go to a website versus following a social media page in today’s world of instant gratification….
First off, can you let us know what pages you go to from the home page on band/musician’s websites?
Secondly, what do you like to find on websites & what do you tend to skip over?
Thirdly, Why are you going to the site? To make a purchase, see a schedule of appearances or learn about an artist that is new to you?
Lastly, how important are photographs, videos, and news articles? What about the bio & discography? Do you read their blogs?
Do you look for certain things in the “store” pages and do you download songs from an artist directly or from a major supplier like iTunes or Amazon?
All comments are welcome as this is an investment that we want to do right! I look forward to hearing what you want & creating a fun place to visit!
