Website help please?

Post by CountryRex » Wed Sep 17, 2014 11:44 am

Some friends and I started up our own band a few months ago and we're thinking of setting up a site we can use to promote ourselves. As the appointed 'tech guy' I've been tasked with setting it all up, but I could do with some advice on how to go about it - which kinds of hosts I should be looking at, how much to pay, what will be easy to maintain, etc. I've found but would like to know if anyone else on here has used them before, before I go and sign up. If not, what do people use and what would you recommend? I just need something straightforward that doesn't require any messing about with coding or anything. Any tips would be great.

Sorry, I'm a complete technophobe.

Not a complete technophobe, you are using a computer to access this forum after all.
Rex, have you had a look at weebly? It's a website building program. See video ukulele group uses weebly for our website and we're no computer whizzes. Have a look, it's come out pretty good. If we can do it, anyone can.

Initially keep it simple, clear and uncluttered.
Don't go overboard on images and graphics - they only get a glance.
We surfers are a fickle lot and if we don't like the page we will move on.
Don't put up too many embedded or Cloud tracks to begin with.
Don't put up too many links.
When you have created a Web following you can fine tune your site based on 'hits'.
