    A website.....still worth investing in.... ?

    I run a successful clubnight in another venue as a side project to my weekly residency. My facebook fan page is a superb ,free, marketing tool which is a very busy page. The last clubnight i had sold out within 1 hour of the doors being open. Therefore the Facebook page and word of mouth is working very well.

    The next step was to create a proper website for the clubnight, but not sure if its really needed and maybe id be best investing my money into other parts of the clubnight instead - ie more club decor etc.

    Is a website still a 'must-have' tool to invest in considering most people are now on Facebook ? My Facebook page allows me to do pretty much everything a website would allow me to do.....

    Cheers

    To answer you question, no, it's not worth a heavy investment anymore, but I think its something any business should have. Good question though.


    I personally still look for websites, when searching for something specific. I usually find their facebook info after I view the site, so that could be a good reason to still have one and put some effort into it.

    You could have a nice basic one page website, some graphics, venue name, ect. , then at the bottom state "like us on facebook for more info" with a link. A domain name and hosting costs maybe 40 bucks a year for something simple like that.

    A website is not essential but its also not a big investment at all. If you know anyone with basic webdesign skills you can have it down for $100 and a couple of days.
    Oh whats that you say? You wanna out check my soundcloud?

    I agree with the above. Use Facebook/MySpace/Twitter/Soundcloud/MixCloud, etc. and utilize those. It's good to just have a simple layout if you want your own domain.

    When Facebook is gone you'll still have somewhere for your followers to turn. At minimum create a website with a Wordpress theme.

    ^---- This.

    And you get a personalized email address (Your domain name) which IMHO is sort of a must.

    I'd say definitely make a website. It really bugs me when I'm looking for a business, band, etc. and they only have a facebook or a myspace.

    not sure if srs... Not saying it will never go away but that is pretty spurious reasoning... It's almost like saying "when the traditional internet no longer exists" which would invalidate your argument anyway.
