Bobby Borg has provided us with 8 common-sense practical tips to help you pursue a career in the music business.
1. Enlist quality control standards
Be sure to closely monitor the quality of your promotion and make sure to do things right the first time. For instance, make sure to check the dates and addresses on the posters you create before you send them to the printer, and also have someone check the spelling and grammar of your marketing messages before your post them on your blog.
2. Remember to promote the promotion
When you get that review of your music on a blog, be sure to promote the review by placing links to the blog everywhere you can (on your social networks, on your website, and in emails you send out). Make the most out of every success.
3. Utilize “reminder marketing” techniques
Don’t expect people to remember the show you invited them to several weeks before. Send out several notices spaced evenly over two or three weeks before your gigs, and use a combination of strategies (postcards, phone calls, social media, face-to-face selling, etc.) for maximum engagement.
4. Be consistent
Make sure to communicate a consistent identity in everything you do. Remember that your name, logo, slogan, attitude, and tone all affect the image that fans will form in their own minds. If there are inconsistencies, the fans might get confused.
