- About / Bio – A page which explains your business and a little bit about yourself to help prospects understand who they are going to hire.
- Press Kit – Include high quality images of yourself playing past gigs, weddings, events, etc. Try to also include some testimonials from past clients
- Contact page – A contact page is a requirement for any website. The contact page is where your prospective clients will be entering in their contact information, like their name, email, and phone number. Make sure to follow up with any contacts you receive
