And of course, all of that must be run by good management. Hearing management, maybe the ones who are imagined are serious people and think for business. But band management has a uniqueness.
What is needed is not only people who understand how the music industry is going, but also know the band inside and out. So it really can make the inner beauty of these artists come out. Can overcome conflicts that occur in the band. Or make the conflict as something useful for their promotion.
Do not be mistaken for a band split news. Such gossip can actually increase the popularity of a band. Because they are accused of breaking up, people are busy talking about and buying the “last album”. Favorable, right? Are we forming a band? Or already have a band?
In the initial stages, it’s still normal if you don’t have all of it. Gossip makes things worse. So, in short, stay away from it. People will like you for a while because of a “good and positive” gossips. But, you better let the community knows you for your result. This is the best way to have a reliable fan base.
But at least we have started to prepare it. Especially if our band is a year old. At that age, usually the character of the band has begun to emerge. Because Recom is more interested in bands that seem to have character and character, so for a year old bands can already show off there. Character and characteristics are indeed the most attractive packaging at this time.
Make your band demo useful and listen. For the initial movement you can create an account at myspace.com, http://188.8.131.52, purevolume.com, friendster and other free facilities on the internet. And for radio media, pack your demo as attractive as possible. Do not let your demo looks the same as blank CDs in the office, because your demo will undoubtedly be wasted!
Make the media feel valued by making attractive demo and band profiles. You can package it with an interactive CD, an attractive casing (not worth throwing away), an evocative profile along with a photo band with good quality and image.
On the other hand, do not hesitate to get closer to media people, such as occasionally going to the music director (MD) of radios who are competent to comment on your music, print media journalists etc. Do not hesitate to also join various communities, because that is the warehouse for music events.
Active on music mailing lists etc. That way, you will have more links to promote to various parties. After running all that, will luck approach your band? Well, lots of charity and pray! Good luck! Cheers! Good luck!
Now that you know the secret behind every successful indie band. This secret is yours to manage. Make sure you implement it correctly before you lose everything. It happens because not only band community is important for your music industry, but they are also your supporters, if you could manage your band properly.
