Tips to promote your music in 2012

With the new year it is time to re-think your promotional strategies with your music.

1. Always carry business cards. Get full color business cards printed that include your name, website, email address and phone number. Never be unprepared.
2. Always carry a CD on you. You never know who you may run into.
3. Book as many gigs as you can handle. Promote your music as much as possible.
4. Go to other shows in your genre and promote and network as much as possible.
5. Submit your music to as many college radio and internet radio stations as possible.
6. Do not be afraid to call people. Networking is a necessity.
7. Shoot a music video. Put it on Youtube and your website. Promote the hell out of it. There are many affordable options to record a video these days.
8. Stop making so many mixtapes, record real albums. All original material.
9. Get a story and or review done in as many local and regional papers as possible.
10. Surround yourself with good people who want to see you succeed and know the business. Try not to get family and friends involved in your career. Outsiders with skills work best.
