How are up-and-coming bands marketing themselves more effectively than signed
artists--and putting the final nail in the record company coffin in the process?
The answer: new online web design platforms like Wix.com that let non-tech savvy
musicians create dynamic flash website and MySpace pages (for free) that not only
rival, but exceed the quality of professionally made websites.
As I’m sure you know, record companies have been taking it on the chin the past few
years with music sales drying up. But their saving grace has been their powerful
marketing arms, which for top artists has always been the best way to achieve market
penetration. No longer.
Web 2.0 has leveled the playing field. Musicians can send e-flyers with embedded
music about upcoming gigs, create customizable widgets for their MySpace page, and
create band Flash websites that match the artistic value of their music.
The result: young and up-and-coming bands are now marketing themselves more
effectively than big name artists. That’s why in just a few months nearly 200,000
musicians have already signed up with Wix.com web design platform.
