Too often artists think that streaming revenue is going to make the bulk of their music career income. The truth is you can earn way more with your own products & services. The problem is, most artists don't know how to properly implement & market this. That's where we come in!
Most people who visit your website for the first time will not purchase anything. That's why it's crucial you're able to follow up with them by advertisements, email, text, or push notifications. The real key is getting visitors to be interested enough in your content so that they'll want to hear more from you.
Having merchandise available on your website is great! But usually website visitors need to be taken through a series of material before they're ready to buy. We'll strategize the right sequence of pages and content to give your products the best chance at success.
Omari - "There is a HUGE difference between a nice looking website and one that's optimized for MARKETING. You don't want listeners to just visit your website; you want them to support your music career! It's time musicians started treating their career like a real music business with the proper website & marketing tools."
If you have a WordPress website, then you will not need to transfer your domain and hosting. However, we will be updating the theme to Optimize Press 3.0 and rebuilding your website.
For all others, we will need to transfer the domain to Hostgator and use WordPress to design the website. There are very specific customizations we need to have full control over, and WordPress gives us that functionality.
You can request the release of your domain name from your provider and screenshot/screencast recordings of your original website should you want us to maintain any similar design.
Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee results of any kind. Each situation and artist is unique. Factors such as music quality, product prices, brand strength, and demand all play a role in judging it’s success. However, we use our expertise and experience to provide the best results we can.
Currently, yes. This is only for music artists, producers, and musicians.
We will begin web design 2 days after receiving all pertinent images/videos after the consultation. The active duration of time to complete each package is estimated below:
Bronze package: 7 business day delivery
Silver package: 14 business day delivery
Gold package: 21 business day delivery
You are free to do this; however, there will be no partial refunds or full refunds on orders. Micro-managing a campaign will only cause you anxiety and us a headache. We will give you several website templates to choose from during the consultation so that you have a feel of what your end website will look like. There are 3 total revisions included should you decide you want to change the design of the site.
Yes. However, your domain & hosting are billed separately. You will need to pay these bills in order to keep the site current. If you do not wish to use our management/support after the first year, then you also may want to purchase support/theme updates from Optimize Press to ensure functionality in the future.
For Bronze & Silver packages, you can pay the difference to be upgraded to a Silver or Gold package, respectively. If you'd like additional pages for a Gold package, we will send custom invoices.
Once accepted you will schedule a 60-minute consultation to go over specifics of the website and products. After the initial consultation we will be accessible via email support.
We will set this up with you during the initial consultation. The cost is typically around $5/month when you select the longer duration plans. We use Hostgator to buy/transfer domains.
