A Onescreener is a page where all your most important information is visible at once. No scrolling, no subpages – everything on one screen. It makes sure that the information you want to display gets noticed.
When you've finished this set-up guide, your Onescreener will be live and kicking. It will then take a few weeks for search engines to index your page. Once this has happened, though, your page will be search engine optimized.
And now, let’s get your Onescreener out into the world!
Step 1: Sign up
You can log in with your existing Optune account (in this case proceed to step 2 and choose a theme) or create a new account.
Create a new account by entering your name.
Then enter your artist information and click on Create Page.
This will also create an Optune Artist Profile for you. What is Optune? Don’t worry, it’s free and it’s awesome!
We’ve designed all of the features to function independently, but you'll harness the full potential when you combine Optune and Onescreener.
Step 2: Choose a theme
Now, that you have your profile, choose one of the following four themes to act as the foundation of your Onescreener:
- Display links to a playlist/album etc. on Soundcloud/Mixcloud
- Display all of your upcoming and past gigs
- Display a YouTube video showing you in action
- Display your bio/text letting people know more about you
Step 3: Edit your page
Let’s edit your page. We will work top down starting with the background and finishing with adding links to your Onescreener.
You can always save your changes and see a preview of your current design using the buttons at the bottom of the page.
Start with a background. Upload the picture you want to have featured on the page, and set the focus point by clicking on the image.
Choose if you want to have the picture displayed in full-screen or presented like a poster.
If you go with the poster format, define a background colour.
Then, upload your logo. Choose its size and set a position by clicking on one of the nine boxes. Select a transparent file format (PNG) and check if it’s right using the preview button.
When you're happy, click save and go back.
It’s time to design your main content by clicking on the + button at the bottom of the content box.
You've already chosen the theme. If you want to change it, just pick a different one from the list. To position the content, click on the first box and drag your cursor to select the parameters of it.
Colours: Experiment with different colours for the items until you are happy with the preview.
Links: Choose a set of links to complete your Onescreener, and set their position by clicking on the box. You can also choose the size and appearance of the link by experimenting with form and line style.
You can add up to seven links, but keep in mind, less is more!
For example, if you have a YouTube video as your main content, it makes sense to add a Soundcloud link, your most important social media link and one link to your Optune profile or Booking Request form.
Step 4: Publish your page
Now it's time to get real! If you're happy with your design, publish your Onescreener with a starter domain, or use your own domain by opting into the pro account.
Enjoy setting up your flashy Onescreener! And don't forget to share it far and wide.
