Some "To Do" tips for the year ahead...

A new year is upon us & many who are serious about their music career have already put together a plan of action. Remember that a team can move a mountain, going solo will eventually tire you out and drain you for your creative flow.

First, have a look at all of your websites and make sure that the content is up to date. Next, never mix business with pleasure on any of your websites. Blog appropriately, meaning, there is content and info that your fans want to hear and then there is content that the media & industry would be interested in. Check for spelling...make sure your photos look fantastic, after all, this is a BRAND you are slowly building. A bio should be extremely short and to the point. Definitely have a contact number and email address visible.

You want your best videos showcased and no, not 20, two - three maximum. Where do you reside and what is your genre specialty should be clearly indicated. What are you doing right now? talk about it...what is upcoming in the next few weeks? Your biggest music credits should be showcased, (ie: your opened for a huge well known act or you just performed on a well known TV show or you are working with a high profile producer or publicist).

Normally visitors will be on your site for a maximum of 30 seconds, so draw them in, there is plenty of competition. Have a team? List them clearly and concise with name, title, email address.

And finally, ready to hire out for some assistance? Think about budget, be sure to present yourself with links and updated bio, what you would like to achieve through marketing efforts, what you are personally doing now to achieve those goals.

Good luck! contact me for a free consultation.
