Onesheet.com allows bands to create a simple, effective website. The application works by asking bands to verify who they are. This is done through Facebook or Twitter. The user must log in to their band page using the social network they choose to prove that they are a member of the band. After doing so, Onesheet automatically pulls all of the information needed from the social networking profile to their Onesheet profile. The user can edit this information as necessary. Next, the user can select from a number of third party applications and services they wish to link to their Onesheet profile. Onesheet pulls information from all of these third party websites and builds the user’s Onesheet. The user can then customize the look of their Onesheet page by adding a background image. Bands can edit their concert and location information as they want to after generating the Onesheet page.
Onesheet was founded in June of 2011 by Brenden Mulligan. The application was intended to provide bands and musicians with the simplest way to build their own website. The site uses Django Zoom for hosting and Send Grid for email services. The current version of Onesheet allows bands to build their own websites complete with their information in a matter of minutes.
Onesheet takes a lot of the time and energy out of building a band website. The user only has to link their band’s profiles and accounts to Onesheet. The application automatically gathers the information needed and places it on the user’s Onesheet page. Although the service is mostly automated, it still allows the user to customize with a background image and content editing capabilities.
A Onesheet page has a very organized appearance that works well for the intended purpose. The Onesheet includes a small box that features band information, audio clips and any other relevant details below the band’s name. The user can upload any image they like, which will become their Onesheet background.
Setting up a Onesheet page is extremely simple. A band member or manager can click the green and white “Create Your Onesheet” button found along the lower portion of the homepage. The form on the following page asks the user for a username and password. After submitting the information, the user receives an activation email which must be accessed to complete registration. To set up a Onesheet, the user must log in to Twitter or Facebook to confirm that they are a member of the band.
Onesheet is available to all users for free. There are no subscription fees or other expenses associated with using the application. The user can sign up and verify their band membership at no cost. This is definitely a good thing because the application includes somewhat limited editing tools.
Onesheet.com is meant entirely for bands and those who manage them. The user must be a part of a band to create a Onesheet page. The application allows users to include all the information that a band might want on a website, so there is little reason for anyone else to create a Onesheet page.
