Many piano teachers probably own a music studio website. If you don’t, it’s a great thing to start building for the new year. Many people think that just putting up a website is all they need to do. The fact is, there are more than 180 million websites out there, and you need to do everything you can to get noticed these days.
The following are a few suggestions to help you make the most of your music studio website:
Write Articles for Your Site – Google outwardly states that they favor sites that are large and well established. If they favor your site, it will be seen more often in the search engine results. If you only have 5 pages, add 5 more with unique and interesting articles. The bigger the better.
Write Articles for Other Sites – The goal here is to build incoming links to your website, and establish you as an expert in your field. One of the biggest websites to write for is Squidoo.com. Consider writing a 400+ word article, and find a place to add a link or two back to your website. Not only will you be driving traffic to your site, but a link from this site will be like getting a big “vote” for you site because they are such a large and well established site. The other big plus for writing for Squidoo.com is that they share 50% of the profits from the ads and affiliate links within your articles. You won’t get rich, but you may add an extra $10-20 per month in passive income to your budget.
Pinterest – Do you have a bunch of snazzy photos/images on you site that are worth sharing? Pin them to a board on Pinterest.com. The links will be valuable in terms of Search Engine Optimization, and will drive more traffic to your site.
Teacher Directory Profiles – Many teachers find students through teacher directory profiles on websites like GetLessonsNow.com and PrivateLessons.com. Both of these websites allow you to link back to your website. MakingMusicFun.net goes the extra mile, and allows you to include valuable keywords within your link that will greatly enhance your presence on the web. (Easy to understand examples are provided.)
I hope you find many wonderful students as a result of your efforts!
