New Year, New website!

by Trust Tree Designs

Is this the year you’re going to get serious about updating or launching a new artist website? We know it’s easy to keep your fans in the know with quick social media posts, so maybe you’re wondering why you should bother with a full website at all? Here are 10 reasons we can think of.

Let fans know where you’re playing

Let your fans know where you’ll be playing this year with a personalized performance calendar. Check out the calendars we created for Celtic harpist Kim Robertson and conductor Gerard Floriano. (Don’t worry, we’ve designed them so it’s super easy to add and edit dates yourself!)

Show off your discography

Do you have a collection of recordings to let people know about? Check out the filterable portfolio we built for flute virtuoso Jeffrey Khaner.

Sell your merch

Sell your recordings, publications, and other merch directly to fans in your own online shop like harpist Angela Schwarzkopf. Or ask supporters for donations like the GroundWork(s) organization.

Consolidate your audio and video

Consolidate all your streaming links from YouTube, Spotify, Soundcloud, etc., directly onto your website like bass player Nadine Traoré. Or embed sound clips directly onto your site like harp virtuoso Judy Loman.

Give clients what they need

Give promoters, clients, and the press exactly what they need with downloadable media links for high-res photos, biographies, repertoire lists, and more.

Let people contact you

Worried about missing a DM? Let fans and potential clients contact you by email (without giving out your address!) by using a contact form.

Tout your testimonials and reviews

It’s okay to gloat! Or at least to let others gloat about you. We can help show off your testimonials and reviews for all the world to see.

Get followers

We know you’re not going to ditch your social accounts any time soon, so why not embed them directly onto your website and gain even more followers?

Build a mailing list

Ask fans who visit your site to sign up for your mailing list. We can route them directly to an email service like Mailchimp or Constant Contact!

Write a blog

Feeling creative? Jot down a few notes about what you’ve been up to or why clients should hire you, and share your posts on social media.

These are just a few of the reasons we can think of to update or launch your new website this year! Drop us a line to let us know how we can help!
