DIY Band Websites

Having your own website today is important if you want to stand out from the crowd and establish yourself as a legitimate business. When you rely solely on sites like Myspace and Facebook, you put your fate in their hands. If they decide to shut down your profile, there’s nothing you can do about it. With your own website, you call the shots. You can still use sites like Facebook to link back to your site and increase your rankings in the search engines even higher.

But many people are intimidated by creating a website. They don’t know how to go about it and figure that it’s pretty expensive to get someone else to do, plus – isn’t it time consuming if I do it myself?

Well, none of those questions need to be true. You can design your own website yourself, save a ton of money and not have to lose a month of your life to make it happen.

DIY Band Websites can be every bit as easy to maintain as your Myspace profile page, but you retain ownership. You can tweak it out as much as you like, and if you don’t want to do it yourself – that’s okay, because there are thousands of designers out there that are willing to work on projects like yours for much less than you’d think.

I want to save musicians and bands from forking out huge dough for a site that might look nice, but nobody will be able to find online. So I put together some sweet training for bands so that they can create their own website using WordPress.

It’s easier than ever to create a kick ass website that is loaded with features for you band, without having to pay an arm and a leg or have to chain yourself to your desk for a month.

I just wanted to share something that I’m quite excited about; I’ve finally been taking the information that I have in my head and have been writing a DIY tutorial for bands to get their own website up and running within minutes for next to nothing. I’m calling this product the DIY WordPress Band Website Training, and you can purchase it right now for less than $5! My personal guarantee is if you cannot build a website after following the steps as I outlined them – I’ll personally set it up for you free of charge.

Now here’s the deal, since this is my first product and I’m testing the market I decided to offer a special incentive to those musicians out there that take me up on this training. This product is going to give you a high quality education on what you need to know to set up and promote your band online, without you having to be chained to your desk for hours each day. Right now I have 4 modules planned, each module will cost $4.95 and as I load up the videos the price will jump up to $6.95 per module. So when the training is complete the whole thing will cost just under $28 or so.

However, if you buy now at the low price of $4.95 – you’ll have access to all 4 modules without paying a cent more. This is a great chance to get awesome training at a fraction of it’s worth if you’re willing to put up with waiting for the content as I update it each week. It’s important to me that I price my products so that real musicians can afford them and that they provide maximum value. By purchasing you’re also doing me a tremendous favour because you’re voting with your dollars and letting me know that you’re interested in this training and hopefully you can give me some feedback on what you like so that I can tweak the content to make it even better for musicians to learn from.

So, if you ever wanted to learn exactly how to build your own band site, where to find affordable and quality hosting and domain names – visit this page and grab your training while it’s still only $4.95!

I can only guarantee that this offer will be available for the next day or so – once I complete the videos for module 1 I’ll be raising the price to $6.95 and once I release module two the price will then go up by $4.95 again – and so on until it’s finished.

Let me repeat again, that if you cannot build your own website within a few minutes with this training that I give you – I will gladly build the site for you! Plus the information I share on where to get your domain name and hosting alone can save you easily more than $100 compared to if you bought band website packages available out there. Being able to build out your own site and save well over 100 bucks is surely worth the full price I’ll be charging, must less the $4.95 that it costs right now.

It’s up to you – this is a market test for me to see whether there’s a interest for this type of training. I don’t even have a sales letter put together yet! So if you’re reading this and you want to get this training for a steal, buy it now.

Okay, that’s enough of my sales pitch. If you’re still unsure whether you want to spend your money on my training, sign up for the Indie Band Alliance list and I’ll send you 10 videos that will explain all about web hosting, domain names and what I think is the best software to use for building your band website (hint, I’m using it right now!). You get all of that for FREE, and you get a chance to get a feel for the way I do things. If after that you feel like buying my actual step by step video and written tutorial guide to installing, configuring and running your band website – well it’ll probably cost a little bit more by that time, so you’ve been warned.

Thanks for reading this!

UPDATE: True to my word, I’ve upped the price to $6.95 because I’ve added 7 walk through videos that provide 40 minutes of guidance along with the module one 23 page report. This is a tremendous value for the money, and you can save yourself over $200 compared to signing up with certain website services online that are aimed at bands. Wouldn’t you rather keep that money in your pocket?
