Quick Tip: How to Create Your Song List

Posted by Drew Stoga on February 15, 2011

If you’re a musician, impersonator or tribute act – a song list really helps clients see the range of material you cover. A DJ member could certainly use this, but it’s not completely necessary considering DJ’s typically have thousands of songs in their database, and can easily obtain a requested song if need be.

Adding a song list to your Profile is more important than you may think. Although clients will have the ability to see which styles of music you perform in other areas of your Profile, a song list will give them a definitive list of your repertoire. Some clients are looking for performers that can play certain songs. If they find your song list and see those song listed, you’re very likely to be contacted directly for a quote. So make sure you add every song you perform, and keep it updated!

GigMasters offers two ways to add your song list. You may add songs one by one, or as a complete list.

How to add songs one by one:

  1. Log into your Control Panel
  2. Go to the ‘profile’ tab
  3. Choose the ‘Song List’ option
  4. Type the song title under ‘song title’
  5. Type the performer original artist under ‘original artist’
  6. If you have more songs than the maximum allowed, or are finished adding songs, click the ‘save’ button.
  7. If you’ve reached the maximum and would like to add more you’ll be given more space after you click the ‘save’ button. Repeat until finished.

IMPORTANT TIP: Once you’ve finished adding your songs we can sort them alphabetically for you. The ‘to sort alphabetically by Song Title, click here’ button is located below the ‘save’ button. Make sure you’ve already saved your songs before clicking that link, or else the information you’ve entered will be erased.
