Welcome to this; the site that exclusively deals with my commercially-orientated 2016 release entitled
* The SiteGround Rap *.

SiteGround_Rap_art[218]

I was inspired to create this, having become an affiliate for SiteGround Hosting Services that year.

As I’ve said before (In fact I wrote an article about it on my main site.); I would never endorse and promote something that I myself wouldn’t use; and I can tell you that this site, indeed all the websites I own, are hosted on SiteGround’s servers. After having experienced the service, and, at times, the lack of service, of many of its competitors; I’ve come to believe in SiteGround, and I rely upon them for great customer and website services.

I jumped at the chance to become one of SiteGround’s affiliates. I enjoy being affiliated with a company and/or product that I believe in.

In fact, if I stop believing in a product then I can’t sell it any more. I’ve given up whole marketing schemes in the past for that very reason. – Even my career with the Utility Warehouse.

A while after I’d started as a SiteGround affiliate, this rap tune appeared in my head, as if someone had planted it there. I eventually created some music for it and synced the lyrics up with the beat. Eventually I recorded it when I was in my studio one day. I thought that this was going to be a good move, as I’d been listening to the online-music-marketing tutors – who have to this day never helped any budding musician get anywhere further with their career; but have made a lot of money not doing so. Fortunately they haven’t made a penny off me because I can easily tell that their tutoring is useless in the light of what they have claimed it can achieve, and I tell them so after I get my fees payment refunded.

– Well they advertise that their course will kick my music career up a gear and have me making and marketing my music like a professional… So I take up their course; and it’s a course on how to build a website using WordPress and Optimize Press. Followed by copying & pasting pre-written materials and quotes, written in American, that they stole from a 1960s redneck musician. – ‘Been there, done that.. Well the website building part anyway. Optimize Press is a good tool; if a little geeky, but it’s not the right one for building musician’s sites from:

‘Money back please Mr Conman. – Thank you, and by the way your course is a total waste of money and time. – Bye.

Yes you do need at least one website to centre your music business around; but you don’t run it like an online marketer. – That’s an entire article in itself, which will go on a different website if I ever write it.

Anyway I can’t remember which con-artist… I mean ‘instructor’… said it; but I heard from somebody that they had made a lot of money creating music for commercials, and that it was a good idea to create said music for commercials. – I mean everyone in the music business trots down to their local industrial estate every day, and comes home with a case full of contracts, right? Winking smile

Anyway I was going to give this a shot in the dark: Usually, I assume, the musician approaches the company in question and offers their services. I was doing this arse-about-face. – I’d already created the tune for SiteGround… Well maybe someone planted it in my head by whatever means; but whatever the case I’d created it and it was good enough for purpose.

I now had to pitch it to them – even though they hadn’t asked for it – and make them want to use it.

This was a case of awful product-market fit: There wasn’t a market for this rap; I had to create it and hope, having done so, that the product was right for that market.

I stood almost no chance.

Full of enthusiasm I donned my sales hat and emailed SiteGround along with a sample of the music.

In short it was a good pitch but it obviously went to the wrong person. Basically their reply said that they couldn’t afford it at that time. – Which was strange, because I never even mentioned money at all. I replied, but I wasn’t going to play that game. I stated that whenever they felt that they needed; music for their promotional materials in the future then they had an example of what I could produce and they had my contact details on record as their affiliate. Again I appear to have spoken to the wrong person, as I very much doubt anything got passed on. That person was very unlike most SiteGround staff, and I doubt that person stayed working for them much longer after that.

You thought that this was going to be a story of amazing success against all the odds didn’t you? – I’m sorry to disappoint you.

Whatever the case; their loss is my gain: I used it myself in my affiliate advertising. I also put it up on CD Baby only for sale. I haven’t made a fortune in sales from it, and neither have I made a ton of commissions as a result of using it in my advertising. – But it helps. – And it’s another release that wouldn’t have been released otherwise.

…And so to the purpose of this website: –

…Which you could describe as a twofold purpose, or even a double-whammy if you want to get all ‘drama-queen’ with a political flavour about it.

The purpose of this website is to advertise, to promote, even to extol the virtues of, my * SiteGround Rap * single, on limited release on CD Baby for a fraction of a US Dollar. – Which could end up being around £10.00 Stirling if Brexit goes tits-up. – But let’s cut the politics and lap on the the tap that runs the rap.

Also on the agenda is the subject of the scintillating rap sound; that of course being SiteGround Hosting, of whom I am an affiliate and won’t say no to a few sales of quality product if such become available.

Do browse the other pages and partake of whatever is on offer. – Enjoy.

About

…And so to the About Page: A Page about this website and why I created it, and also, primarily, about my single
* The SiteGround Rap *.

sgrap big logo

Well as you may be able to tell about this site from the website’s URL; this website is a sub-domain of my main website. You’ll also note from the big illustration above – on a totally different subject – that SiteGround can host your website in a country near you.

I had the idea of creating a website as a sub-domain in this way for all of my releases; but that really is too much work, so I decided to practice with a couple or three existing releases, and then do it for every future release, including the pre-release campaign, buzz-generators, offers and previews, the lot.

…And, as you can see here, one of the existing releases of mine that I chose to promote on a subdomain website was * The SiteGround Rap *.

The band have gone home.Unless you’re a regular CD Baby visitor or customer who visits my CD Baby page, or you regularly observe my personal Facebook feed, I don’t expect you’ve even heard of * The SiteGround Rap *.  – That’s because it’s on limited release via CD Baby only.

Below is a player that will play you the original music video, as it appears on You Tube but hosted on this site. Although you get the full works right here; I would ask you to support me by heading over to CD Baby and purchase the track for the few US Cents that I’m asking for it.


I was inspired to create this, having become an affiliate for SiteGround Hosting Services that year.

A while after I’d started as a SiteGround affiliate, this rap tune appeared in my head, as if someone had planted it there. I eventually created some music for it and synced the lyrics up with the beat.

Eventually I recorded it when I was in my studio one day. It sounded just the thing for getting the message over and promoting SiteGround’s services; but only having aired on Facebook and You Tube to date, with very little other promotion, it hasn’t really had a chance to be effective yet to date.

 

I’m hoping to get good at knocking out these small websites. At the moment it takes me about a week to get everything sorted as far as the sub-domain site is concerned. Obviously the process will be somewhat different when I’m preparing for a release. – We live and learn.

As you’ll note from the video above; * The SiteGround Rap * is a classic-style rap tune with commercial wording. It’s not particularly elegant in any way: In fact it’s quite simple, and is designed to send a simple message.

That’s about it then. – And so, like the gardener said when he was referring to an onion:
“ That shallot.”.
 
Have a great day.

Contact


 
Well that’s looking good: On this site I have a home page, I have a blog page, I have an about page, and I have this contact page. I also have a blog post too. Anything else that appears as a page or post on this site has been added, either by me or by hackers, since I wrote this piece.

*Note for my own future reference: It took me a few days of part-time work of average intensity to create this site as stated above in late August 2017, and more so in early September 2017.

This is, like, meant to be a contact page; but I’m not adding any forms plugin for the purpose. – I’ve added enough plugins already – and I’m not going to write and debug my own routine either; that takes too long, and I don’t want to spend ages creating this sub-domain site.

There is a contact page on my main website. There’s also a terms of service page, a testimonials page, and privacy policy page. Those are just as applicable to this site as they are to my main site; so guess what: I’m going to link to them, at the main site, below, on this page: –

* You can also find these links in the footer of pages and posts on this site.
