Promotion & Marketing Experts

Over the past couple of years I’ve been doing quite a bit of research in the area of Internet Marketing strategies and techniques for Independent Artists.

With two projects to promote (my CD “Old Sax Nu Soul” and my book “The Saxophone Survival Kit, A Guide for Aspiring Professional Saxophonists…or just anyone!”) it seemed like a good idea to get some solid professional advice about how to proceed.

I’ll spare you the gory details of  the countless virtual encounters with so-called marketing “gurus” that have popped up all over the Net selling their wares. (It’s really become a jungle these days, to put it mildly!) It’s very easy to get overwhelmed and confused.

So, if you are looking for solid, no nonsense, straight up info on how to promote and market yourself and your music on & offline, I highly recommend the following experts… they are the real deal!

Here you go:

Derek Sivers (Founder of CD Baby.com)

Bob Baker (Author of “Guerilla Music Marketing Handbook”)

Seth Godin (Author of “Unleashing the Idea Virus”, authorized free download is here)

Ariel Hyatt (Founder of Cyber PR, a New York based digital PR firm)

Of course there are others but if you check around, (and by all means do check around for yourself)
I think you’ll find that these 4 sources will be more than enough to get you headed in the right direction towards achieving your marketing goals on or offline.

Have a Happy and Productive New Year!

See you soon,
E.
