Record Company Self Promo / Band Websites For a multitude of Website promotional ideas (I think the 'Net is one of today's strongest tools AND so easily available to everyone), have a look at a traffic-building package and host.
  • Promo Tip Keep your band and music in mind, but you could use these methods to successfully promote ANYTHING.
  • Promo Tip Build a reputation and strong fanbase for your band powered by a traffic-building WebSite, and it's strong ammo to approach the Record Companies with. If they can clearly see that your serious about your Band and Music, and your already successfully promoting it yourself, they will take you a lot more seriously.

Promote the Band Online

To help promote the band further online you could open your own store selling goods with YOUR design and/or band logo's or photos on them. To give you an idea of what I mean you can have a quick look at some of the Universal-Total-Guitar-Plus-Center Shop items on display.

Be the belle of the ball and turn up in one of your unique T-Shirts. Or how about getting that lazy dog of yours to advertise the band while he's on walkies in his designer top! Yeh - yeh, check the link see what you think. If you click on an image you can see it close up, so your band logo, photo details or artwork is clearly visible.

Here's a close up of the Universal T-Shirt and all product images, just to give you an idea of what you can do. I designed this picture and logo on a software editor but you can use any type of media.

Your fans or customers can order direct from the site online or you can bulk buy as many as you like (the more the cheaper), and sell them at gigs or parties...whatever.

  • Promo Tip Help impress the Record Companies with your Band products.

Record Company Self Promo / Selling Bands and Info Products  Many Record Companies see each band as a product and are in it of course to make money - not on some Artistical Musical Crusade - ah well. But it will help you in your promo efforts if you see your band like they do - as a product which you can promote. So it has to be a high quality product for starters to stand a chance in today's competitive market.

Here's some more info on that subject which will really open your mind to this approach.
