Musicians & Bands
Marketing is the key to taking your band to the top!
Sadly, talent isn't enough to make your music heard. And neither is relying on who you know. If you don't have the right marketing materials, you'll be passed over for the next big thing.
If you're solely relying on social media, you're going to be making your post announcements to an empty room. Not to mention, playing to one! Printed marketing materials are more important than ever before to stand out in an oversaturated industry.
How many times have you been in a situation where you were asked about your band, but you didn't have a business card to hand over so that you were remembered? And if you did have one, you made it yourself on one of those cheap sites that forced you to design your own art. You get what you pay for, and that card would more than likely be lost in the pile, or thrown away, if it wasn't memorable. The items you are handing out to represent your band are just as important as the quality of your music.
Speaking of handing things out, you should no longer be relying on social media event pages. Not unless you don't want anyone to show up. Properly designed quality flyers and handbills are essential for event promotion. So are stage banners, scrims, posters, stickers, and a quality, user-friendly website. The old saying "you gotta spend money to make money" applies to the music industry too.
Stop relying on so-called "band friendly" companies that charge a 10-15% fee just to sell your merchandise. You can do it with your own website and cut out the middleman. But if the design isn't good, you won't get the sale.
