  1. Create a Website

The obvious focal point for all of your online marketing efforts. In order to build a good website, you must consider two factors:

Content is essential.

The material must be both captivating and conservative, which means it must be well-written and free of exclamation points, curse words, and other offensive language. Your audio/video samples should be accessible from the home page and, ideally, start playing automatically when visitors arrive. Client testimonials from the past are needed. Set lists should be divided into genres and be as extensive as possible.

You can create a website yourself using a website template service, or you can hire a web designer. Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is the process of improving the visibility of a website on (SEO). This is how the website appears in search engines, and it is determined by a variety of variables. One factor is content; a simple guide is obvious; how relevant would the text on your website be if a potential client types a search query into Google or another search engine? It’s critical to identify relevant keywords and phrases and strategically place them throughout your website, not just in the main text, but also in page titles, picture captions, and other areas. The number of links pointing to your website from other relevant and high-quality websites is another important factor in good SEO. As a result, link building, which entails registering your link on other websites, is an ongoing task. There are a variety of good places to start, including local/musician directories. Search engines can lead you to a plethora of useful SEO tutorials for beginners. Choose the highest-ranking ones; they must know what they’re doing.

  1. Become a member of a musician agency.

In the United Kingdom, there are numerous high-quality music agencies that accept artist submissions. If your application is accepted, the agency will request music/video, photos, and a brief biography, as well as client testimonials. Most agencies are free to join and charge a percentage commission fee for each gig you book.

  1. The Internet and Social Media

It is critical to create and manage social media accounts these days because people’s behaviour as ‘consumers’ has changed; they now expect contact and attention before making purchases. Your information should be posted on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and other social media platforms, with each page pointing to your main website. For example, I use my Facebook page to collect client testimonials from other Facebook pages, which serve as a genuine source of positive feedback on my work. Every time I interact with a Facebook ‘fan,’ I automatically reach out to the fan’s friends, increasing exposure in a natural and cost-free way.
