Simple, but effective promo materials can draw people to your music!
Designing and writing effective promotional materials;
is what I'm talking about.
Here are 3 tips to help you promote your careers, and enhance your chances of being offered opportunities.
Do the following:
Take the time to inventory any accomplishments, positive reviews,
training and awards, past sales, and live appearances, and organize them
into bios and fact sheets.
2) Make your promo materials as compelling, and informative as possible. If you canít write in a professional, compelling way, hire a professional publicist.
done that, take more time to research who to send your materials to, and
to ask each potential recipient what type of information they would
like to have sent to them before sending. No 'generic' kits should ever be sent out to
any gatekeepers in the music business.
