4 Ways To Promote Your Website

Here are a few helpful tips on ways to promote your website and generate more traffic.

Ways To Promote Your Website

Join Forums

Join forums that you like and participate in discussion. Put your URL in your forum signature or create an animated banner that links to your website. Here are 9 Music forums.

Comment on Blogs

Leave good comments on blogs that you like. Many blogs ask you to enter your name, email address, and web address. This is great because this gives you an opportunity to link back to your site. Also, when more websites link to your website, you will have a higher search engine ranking. This will make it easier to find your site through search engines.

Join Social Communities

I’m not picking one more then the other, but there are a lot of online communities you can join to possibly generate more traffic. A lot of the sites allow you to enter your URL in the profile.

The goal of joining these additional communities is to become a active member, gain friends and interest, and getting them to come to your site.

Here are some social sites I think you should look into:

Make Youtube Videos

Well don’t just make a video for Youtube, there are plenty of other video site around.
Start a video blog, make some beat making video, do a music video, do a tutorial. Do something. But make it entertaining, and put your URL in the video and on the side bar of the video.

Good tips to shooting some videos

NOTE: Do Not SPAM!

People hate spammers. I hate spammers. Don’t Spam! Don’t post a million Myspace bulletins of the same thing, don’t just post a crappy comment to post your URL. By doing these things your are building a bad name for yourself and the URL you are posting. So STOP IT!!!!

    Great article on music website promotions! I am working with a music project called Blastbeat that really utilisies all the social networking tools for sharing and promoting music. Blastbeat began in Ireland and is now happening in New York, LA, South Africa and many countries in Europe. Blastbeat has it’s own social networking site blastspace.com which allows members to share music, gig video and resources. Full details can be found on http://www.blastbeat.org

  5. Good article, direct and to the point. Social networking definitely seems to be the name of the game in promoting your site. Useful content that updates frequently also can not be overstated to get repeat visitors.

  7. dude, thx for the info. I’m taking your advice & postin on forums, blogs etc.
    I’m beginning right here with your blog.

    Keep doing your thing, as it helps us.

    It seems like you know what you’re talking about.

    Alot of people don’t want to help others. I’m glad there are people like u out here who are willing to help aspiring beatmakers/producers.

  8. also Alpyne music. tell us how u made a success out of your website..

    i’ve made my own website, been promoting it day n night, but not sold 1 beat with my website, while.. i have sold 30+ beats with mybeatshop.com etc.

    i don’t quite understand this..

  9. alpyne, since u have a successfull website, could u write an article/give info about how you made your site what it is right now..?

    i mean.. i got my own website, but i’ve not been able to sell anything with my website till now. I know it must NOT be the beats, cuz i’ve sold 30+ beats without my website… this is very strange and i don’t really understand it..

    I’ve been promoting my website on forums, banners on websites, myspace, twitter, soundclick and alot of other sites..

  10. Well, that was a great blog and I enjoyed the read, you should note though that some of those youtube videos have been removed by the user, just thought you should know.

    Im currently using this list to promote my site: mediamach.com so thanks for the help :).
