Thanks for the reply. Not using WordPress, just their template. I started with GD because I could so a 30 trial. Research favored WIX ,but there is no way to determine if there included players are able to do individual songs. If anyone knows ,please update me.December 12, 2016 at 10:27 am #26340AlanParticipant
I added a website this year after much deliberation. $144 per year on Square Space.
I did it because everyone knows how cheap and easy it is to have a web site and I always felt a little embarrassed using free SC to demo my work. I expect no traffic, and get little to no traffic. I have used it to demo my work, and I occasionally put a link at the end of my emails.
A lot of library writers put up art work from shows on which they’ve had placements (as if they actually had something to do with the show). I’m not sure anybody really believes that, or cares, but it looks nice.
I do have a page of pretty logos from all the shows my tracks have been placed in. The page header is “Alan’s original music has been placed in:”
I don’t see a problem with that. All the libraries that place the music do it. People in the business can quickly see that I successfully write for successful libraries.
Considering what I spend on equipment and software, the cost is negligible and I’m glad I finally did it.December 12, 2016 at 11:27 am #26342
Thanks Alan, thats basically what I want. How does your music play? Is there a player that plays all tracks or can you focus specific songs?December 12, 2016 at 1:43 pm #26352AlanParticipant

Squarespace has templates for musicians/bands. I set up “albums’ by genre. My millennial son (a creative marketing major) did my design and made the tracks non-downloadable. I’ll try to PM you a link.December 13, 2016 at 1:15 pm #26369

Bumping this old thread…
What experience does anyone have on these sites with making them searchable so that clients can enter keywords and audition/download resulting songs?
