Website Demolition Derby (Presented by Bandzoogle)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This session will offer live critiques of EXPO attendees' websites. Our panelists will assess each site's design, organization, content and functionality. How does the website fit with the artist's overall online strategy, and how successfully does it achieve the artist's goals? Our experts have worked with thousands of songwriters and musicians, from major label superstars to secluded basement composers. They are extremely knowledgeable about website best practices and deeply allergic to bad design, music that auto-starts, Flash widgets and unreadable fonts. Our panelists have been instructed to be ruthless and leave all diplomacy aside, so if you're courageous enough to submit your website for their scrutiny, send a note to Bandzoogle's Dave Cool: dcool@bandzoogle.com.
