Skilly Magazine presents 5 reasons why every artist needs to have their own hosted website. 

#1. You need to build an e-mail list of followers


A lot of bands don’t have a mailing list, which they should; it helps to keep your fans posted with upcoming gigs and any products you have coming out. By creating a mailing list this will ensure your fans get all the information from one source, rather than having to go to several different sites. You can give away a free download of a track or one of your live videos; this will give your fans an incentive to sign up to your mailing list.
