STEP 4 - THE WEBSITE

Once the domain name, branding and content has been finalised, these elements can then be brought together into the website using Bandcloud.

Your Bandcloud account comes with Wordpress (the worlds leading website platform) already installed and ready to select a theme and plugins that will customise and extend the functionality of the website according to your needs. The website brings together all your content, social networks, YouTube videos, SoundCloud playlists, photos and blogs into one place.

Here’s what your website menu will look like:

HOME / ABOUT / MUSIC / GIGS / MEDIA GALLERY / STORE/ CONTACT

The homepage can have a selection of modules featuring: Image slider, Facebook feed, Twitter feed, Soundcloud playlist, Latest releases, Recent Blogs etc. This can be arranged using WordPress widgets.

About can be a simple page with your bio and a press photo

Music is where you can show your releases/ discography, which is easy to upload all your releases using the admin panel

Gigs Is your gig list which is powered using the popular ‘Gigpress’ plugin making adding new shows a breeze.

Media Gallery This can be a video and photo gallery combined, it’s easy to add new photo galleries in the admin area and the ‘Tubepress’ plugin does a great job of displaying your YouTube playlists.

Store This is one of the best features of the system and is powered by ‘Woocommerce’ which sells everything beautifully. Not many web stores offer both digital and physical sales and you can also sell bundles, offer discount codes and much more

Contact You can add a customised web form using the ‘Gravity Forms’ plugin, have a MailChimp integrated newsletter sign up form or just a simple contact form.

Once the designs have been approved, we will then build the website according to our proposal. Once the site has been approved you can log in and familiarise yourself with the admin panel, then you are ready to begin managing your own website. Our websites are reliable and secure, but if anything does go wrong, we are always here to help.
