RockBandSites.com is pleased to announce the creation of the first band promotion site built exclusively by and for musicians. With strong ties to the Seattle music community over the past two decades, RockBandSites.com co-founders Chad Hanson and Ira Merrill understand the unique needs of musicians and their fans and have tailored their service to meet these needs.
Using technology that allows bands to update their own websites without touching code, RockBandSites.com is able to offer affordable web design, development and hosting packages that are within any band's reach and that allow bands to easily include the features they and their fans care most about, such as streaming media, photo galleries, guestbooks, forums, and mailing lists.
ÂWhen we set out to build RockBandSites.com, we really wanted to provide a service that would specifically meet the needs of local musicians without trying to be all things to all peopleÂ said Ira Merrill, co-founder of RockBandSites.com. ÂWhen youÂve spent months and years trying to produce music and make a name for yourself, you come to understand the challenges in reaching your audience and keeping them informed about where youÂre playing and when you have new music available. What weÂve put together is a way to do all of that in one place without having to spend a ton of time learning computer code or trying to hunt down technical people to help you out.Â
The key services offered by RockBandSites.com are:
Â Site design, development and hosting
Â Admin tools that let each artist update his/her own site
Â Photo gallery automation
Â Guestbooks and automated mailing lists
Â E-commerce capabilities for CD and merchandise sales
These solutions and services are offered to all musicians at extremely affordable pricing. ÂOur main concern is not to get rich from promoting bands Â itÂs to allow local musicians to make the most of their time and money in terms of online promotion so that they can get on with what really counts Â making music.Â Said RockBandSites.com co-founder Chad Hanson. ÂThatÂs what itÂs about for us too. RockBandSites.com is our way of using our technical expertise to afford us the time to be musicians as well. Ira and I have both worked in high tech for a number of years, and RockBandSites.com is just kind of a natural outgrowth of our experience in both areas.Â
RockBandSites.com is a provider of web-based information and promotional sites for Seattle-area bands and musicians. We do complete site design and build-out for a flat fee of $399 plus $29.99 per month for hosting. Add-on services like automated mailing lists, photo galleries, etc. are less than two bucks a month each. Buy only what you need; change items whenever you want, and update your site for free, with no technical knowledge (really) any time, day or night. To find out more about how RockBandSites.com can get your band online and connecting with your fans in a whole new way, please call 206-919-5020 or visit us at http://www.rockbandsites.com.
