These sites give you the ability to do things that once would have cost you tons of money. As a musician, how do online communities benefit me? Hosting music MP3s and music videos When you sign up for one of these site, most of them give you the ability to post your free mp3 downloads, and music videos on their free web hosting plans. You get a website address where you can post a bio, some band photos, show dates, and mp3s/videos. This allows you to distribute your band’s music for free! All you need to do is create business cards or stickers with your band’s website URL on it, pass them out, and there you go. You can also use message board forums to promote your band’s website, which will get your music MP3s and music videos to even more people.
