Hottie has been “poking” you on Facebook, and you’ve been Twittering over their less-than-subtle suggestive late-night texts, while Hottie’s mates keep tagging you in their Instagram pics from those ever-so-slightly embarrassingly tipsy nights out on the town.
Show your band’s personality. Perhaps the most important point to keep in mind. This will effectively communicate how your band is different. Think about your band’s range, and then try to communicate that using imagery. This will help in getting your message across more effectively, and will also help in letting the recipient know what kind of music you play.
Failing that head over to You tube and find someone else’s video that is entertaining or helpfully and share it. Just on a side note. Content on your page doesn’t always have to be strictly about your business. A funny video can sometimes be just the tonic you need to kick off the conversation on your page.
The irony about social media and the internet is that it’s supposed to save you time, but in the end it takes up more time than ever to just get the word out about what you’re doing. So I’ve noticed this transformation of the present day artist. Some artists are so tech savvy and social media experts that they forgot to focus on being an actual ARTIST! If you’re an artist, business owner, musician, etc… take a look at your week. If you’ve spent more time on Facebook, twitter, YouTube, etc… than on your actual craft then you’re falling into a trap!
I agree with the IDEA of social media. It is a great way to connect and share news and information. There are so many solutions that answer the question “How to promote my music”? I posted the fact that I have a show coming up in 2 weeks and all my friends can see it and share it on their profile. I can tweet about my show. I can shoot a video and post it on YouTube. I can upload the flyer to ver perfil privado instagram 2020 and share it there as well. I can use LinkedIn, FourSquare, my blog, my email newsletter, post pics on my Flickr, upload new songs to SoundCloud, add new photos to my MySpace account (does anyone even use MySpace anymore). The list is endless!
Creating your very own masterpiece painting is an amazing experience. Download Fresh Paint, a program similar to paint but with enhanced and additional tools to enable creating a painting with myriad colors. It is more like a coloring book and the UI is so easy to work with that even a kid can handle it.
Price – The Internet will be your best friend and your fiercest competitor. It’s already happening, but in 2012 you’ll see the boiling point reached for consumers who are shopping in store and then ordering online. Smartphone apps like Amazon Price Check, CouponSherpa and Red Laser make it easy for a person to find exactly what they’re looking for and order it elsewhere before they ever leave YOUR store. My suggestion, take 3 seconds to do the same research yourself. How much cheaper is it actually online?
