Here's some ideas on what you can include. *Biography *Demo Songs *Pictures *Reviews/Testimonials *Sideshow Of Photos *Video or Film Footage (Windows Media or Quicktime format)
Create a biography with pictures in .pdf format and make it available for download. You can use Writer program contained in free Open Office Suite http://www.openoffice.org to do this. Open then program type (or paste) in your biography and insert pictures. When your done go to File > Export As PDF.
7) Lyrics Allows fans to get more familiar with your music. Also adds content to your site which will get picked up by search engines if it has an incoming link form your main page or somewhere else.
8) Biography On your bio page sections fans read about you and see your pictures. A sideshow of your photos sometimes adds a nice touch.
9) Concert Listings/News Keep your fans and site visitors updated with latest news about your concerts/shows, interviews, appearances ond other topics of interest.
10) Forum A discussion forum is a great place for you to interact with your fans and street teams. An excellent free script to set up a forum is phpBB http://www.phpbb.com.
11) Blog Blogging is a good way to syndicate your artist/band news and generate traffic for your site. Search engines love this kind of stuff. Later on in course I'll go a bit more in dept on setting up a blog. A nice fully featured blogging script is Word Press http://www.wordpress.org .
Make sure your each page of your site is cross browser functional, meaning it can be viewed properly by different web browser programs. Two of most popular ones are Internet Explorer and Firefox http://www.mozilla.org/products/firefox . Sometimes a site will show up perfectly in IE but will be all out of whack when viewed in Firefox, or vise versa. Have both browsers installed and check out every page.
