One thing has not changed much at all in the history of popular music. And that is that if you want to get a buzz going about your music you need to make sure that you do everything that you can to get the word out. The artist has always been the one that has the most at stake in their careers so they have to take the bull by the horn to get noticed. What has changed is the method by which that message gets out.

In today’s world of electronic media and information delivery instead of mailing postcards to everyone that night be interested, people post informative posts to web blogs. They send solicited and unsolicited emails to large mailing lists. Ones that might have come from website visitors or may have been aggressively purchased from an online area that sells such lists.

The thing you are trying to do here is to generate more traffic to your YouTube video channel and your MySpace account. As silly as it might seem when you start. The larger your friends count on places like MySpace, the more things that will actually come your way.

If you have a couple hundred friends then people will just think you are another band. If however that friends count is 25,000 or 50,000 the all of a sudden visitors think you must be good. You get more people wanting be friends and sponsors actually showing an unsolicited interest in you. Record companies and booking agencies start to throw out feelers and court you. The whole thing gets a little easier.

So how can you generate this kind of interest? Believe it or not one of the most effective is also one of the easiest to do. Use it. Have the information put on any promo material you have. That means post cards, websites, email, band banners, CDs etc. The more places that you can get you information the more chance you have that people will find that information.

Send postcards and mail outs to record pools. If your band is going out of town, send promo packs, CDs and free tickets to local radio stations. If one DJ picks up a tine and plays it you can sell a lot of merchandise.

Another key to the promotional end is to make sure it looks as good as it can. You are more than likely not a wiz at everything so find a freelancer that is and spend a few bucks to get the stuff professionally designed. You’ll be glad that you did when you see the results.
