Let's face it, the internet is great way to promote your music and get out to the public. On the other hand, it is hard to make your music stand-out on the internet. There are so many internet tools to help promote, distribute, and stream your music. You try to give away a single via, email, blog, etc, but sometimes that just get lost in a technological clutter. It would be great to present your single or song in a very visually and interactive way so that you may stand out from the rest of the crowd.
A new site by the name of Viinyl aims to help bands stand-out little bit more by offering artists and bands to create single song-based website. Think of it as a interactive 12 inch record.
The viinyl platform turns your song into an interactive website - a digital version of the 45rpm single with artwork and videos. viinyl sites are optimized to travel the web, engage fans, grow market demand for your band and increase customer loyalty using marketing techniques for the web.
Here is an example of what a song-based website looks like:
It is definitely worth trying. Currently, the site is in private beta, but you can sign up to be part of the beta at their website.
