The music industry is changing. Once upon a time the only way to make and sell records was to get a deal with a record company. Today, more and more musicians are going it alone. Building their own studios, recording their own albums and doing the marketing for themselves. The advantages are obvious--total creative freedom and a greater slice of the retail price finding its way back to the musician. There is one big disadvantage, however--without the power of the record company how is a musician going to reach the public?
What's new, and what makes it possible for a musician to reach the greatest possible market is the Internet. With your own website you can join the ever growing number of musicians and bands who are marketing and selling their music on the Internet.
Creating a Music Website takes you through the basics of setting up your own site, points out some of the pitfalls, and helps you to produce your own unique presence on the Internet. It introduces HTML, shows you how to brighten up your site with graphics, tables, and frames. You'll learn how to add files of your own music, even a band video, and if you fancy selling your music off your website, the book addresses the vexed question of selling on the Internet.
Written by a man who's been there and done that
