Don’t Lose Web Traffic Through Your Email
I was reading the FolkBiz discussion group today and once again noticed a tragic error that happens to too many musicians.
It’s a simple error. One that will ensure you get web traffic and only requires seven simple characters to make it happen:
Yup! That’s it. Pretty simple huh?
Fact is when you add your URL to your band’s signature you need to add http:// before your domain name. It may not look as cool, but EVERY email program I use requires that simple piece of code in order to activate your URL and make it live.Imagine for a moment. How would you like it if I said, go visit my band’s website at www.brobdingnagianbards.com?
That means you must either learn how to spell “brobdingnagian,” OR you will have to copy and paste that URL into a browser. And you will… IF you REALLY want to check something out. But more likely than not, you won’t.
I can vouch for that. I’ve seen one folk musician in the FolkBiz group for years. I was about ready to find out more about him. But his URL wasn’t live. So instead, I decided to come complain about it here.
Lack of Education Will Cost Your Band DearlySubscribe to The Bards Crier to learn how to successfully promote your unsigned band's music. Your musical success depends on it.
