An Instant Band Page With Onesheet

For a new artist or band, not only is it important to get your music together, but your online presence is equally important as well. If you have the dough you can hire a company to integrate all of your social media on to a new custom website, but that takes time. Most artists couldn't be bothered with programming their own site, and even if they could, that takes time as well. Time which could be better spent creating great music.

Now comes Onesheet, a site that can get your artist page up and running in literally only a couple of minutes. The brainchild of Artistdata founder Brenden Mulligan, Onesheet sucks in all of your social media data from services such as Songkick, Twitter, FanBridge, SoundCloud, Moontoast, Sonicbids, Vimeo, YouTube, Facebook and more and displays it on tabs on the page. You can then upload a picture as a background, then easily tweak the layout and info box to give you an instant band page. The best part about Onesheet is that once you set it up, you don’t need to update it because it’s  fed by your other social media sites. When you update them they update Onesheet to keep it up to date.

There are a couple of downsides that I see with the service, but they're minor considering the positives. First of all, your URL is a subdomain of Onesheet. In other words, it's "onesheet.com/yourname" instead of your own custom "myname.com" URL. The other is that the layouts are all the same except for the background image. Still, if you need something online right now, and I mean RIGHT NOW, this is the one service that will do it quickly and extremely easily. Oh, and it's free too, at least for now.
