There’s no doubt that one of the most important things you have to be doing is creating interactive content for people to find and engage in. You’re already doing that with all the music you’re creating, and you probably have gone the extra mile and started posting videos to YouTube, pictures to Flickr, and are using the various social networking tools like Facebook and Twitter.
All this stuff probably seems overwhelming, but imagine what it’s like for your fans? They have to seek and search for all this content. And what about blogging? If you already have one set-up, it’s probably just another thing you have to worry about pointing your fans to. Your content is all over the place at this point, isn’t there an easier way to organize it all?
There is, and the answer is building a dynamic website using a CMS; luckily, it won’t cost you an arm and a leg, and in just a few minutes you can have one up and running.
In this very important module, we’re going to teach you how to take the free, open-source WordPress CMS and make it your home base for all your band’s content.
