This is just another reason to learn Wordpress.. considering there is a plugin to get tourdates onto Google, Wordpress allows for an Artist to have a "white labeled" web site without the branding of Reverbnation, or BandPage. However, not all musicians have time to learn Wordpress. This makes sites like Reverbnation a no brainer. Still, why not have both? Any serious Artist can learn Wordpress for free through tons of tutorials available on YouTube, or Google search. Of course, an Artist with a decent budget can hire someone to help with building a Wordpress web site. Another option is to simply find a college intern you can pay through posting an ad on Craigslist for a "Wordpress Developer".

"Market to the niches" is something that stands out of all 100 tips. This is what can make a musician stand out.. find a niche and stick with it. Even with only a small number of fans, if an artist has a niche, the fans are very loyal. Trying to be simply another Pop Artist is a bad idea if you want to stand out.

Bandzoogle has also implemented Google's new Knowledge Graph. So all musicians/bands using our Events feature are getting their upcoming show dates sent to Google automatically:

Indeed, using a data source like Songkick makes absolute sense in order to not end up maintaining different data sets. However, being forced to include some kind of "widget" might prevent many web developers to include this data into their website. I have created a web service that pulls the data from Songkick and returns the raw JSON-LD representation, which can be included into a website without changing the layout. That is, concert data in Google's Knowledge Graph via Songkick, *without* touching the visual appearance of the website.
