Tell Your Story with Webdoc
Engaging Stories – it’s what gets people interested. Currently, it’s hard to keep people interested in your story with only text. Musicians are trying to find interesting ways to be heard through the clutter and creating rich media posts is one way to stand out. Last week, I talked about creating engaging content and I mentioned a tool called Webdoc. Webdoc is an easy tool that enables you to create rich media posts in seconds. Musicians don’t have to worry about HTML because the interface is WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get). You can include a URL or HTML if you really want to though.
Getting started on Webdoc is easy: All you have to do is connect with Facebook or Twitter or create an account. Once you are in, you can start creating a post. The blank white sheet can be designed any way you want. You can include text, pictures, music, and video. I think one of the best features is the fact that you can add elements from applications like Facebook, Songkick, Soundcloud, Instagram, Slideshare, Twitter, Vimeo, YouTube, and more. There are various customization options that include resizing posts, making it public or private, and adding different colors and fonts. Musicians can get really creative and create campaigns to release new music, announce show dates and upcoming performances, tell stories, or share whatever they want. I’ve used Webdoc before and I think it’s a great tool for Musicians to share content that can capture people’s short attention spans and caters to people that are more interested in visually appealing posts rather than just text.
Once you are finished creating your post, it is easy to share your creation with other people via social media, email, and embedding it on your site. Various Musicians and companies have used Webdoc such as Nirvana, One Direction, Megan and Liz, Universal, EMI, Sony, InGrooves, and Essence Media. Check out Webdoc’s page and PDF guide that are designed to help musicians.
This video gives an intro to Webdoc:
Since it’s SXSW, Musicians attending can take advantage of the opportunity by sharing Webdoc posts letting Fans know what they are doing in Austin, introducing people to their music, and more. Try out Webdoc and let me know what you think by commenting below. Thanks!
