There are many ways to benefit from starting a website. How you benefit from starting a website depends on what you do and what you hope to gain from starting a site.

MP3 clips or videos of you or your band placed on your site will allow your audience to hear and see your work. Make sure you promote your site as much as possible - if you are aiming at a younger audience they will be members of the social networking sites. Use these to drive traffic to your site.
