When you make a website for your band, you want to offer content for your fans, but you should also offer clear and accessible info for music industry and media people. On the Hypebot blog Dave Cool from Bandzoogle sums up the essential elements of a digital press kit:
- a bio: it can be a good idea to have multiple versions of different lengths
- images: vertical and horizontal options, low and high resolution (if used for print)
- music: make a few tracks downloadable and place clear information on who people can contact to get a copy of your album or EP
- press articles/reviews: pull the best quote from each review and include it underneath the link
- contact info
You can read the whole post here. At the end there are a couple interesting links to a series of ‘musician website quick fixes’.
