Band Website Extreme Makeover Part 1: Demolition Derby

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Live critiques of band websites! In this interactive session, bands submit their websites for review, then each site's design, organization, content and functionality will be assessed. How does the website fit with the band's overall online strategy? How successfully does it achieve their goals? Reviews will be ruthless and diplomacy left aside, but everyone in attendance will learn how to improve their websites. Plus, one winner will be chosen to have their website redesigned and used for part 2 of this session on how to build an effective band website!
We're welcoming early website submissions through dcool@bandzoogle.com, subject line: Band Website Extreme Makeover.
