How Can We Help – 7/12/13

Wanna get your DIY music promotions questions answered and promote your music?

Do you have questions about promoting your music or building a fanbase? Leave it in the comments and we promise to get back to you or even write a post featuring you that answers your question. If we think your question would benefit our readers we’ll post a YouTube video of your song on top of a post that answers your question. No matter what, you will get an answer this week as long as you leave an email address (so we can let you know when we answer your question) and a YouTube URL for your video.

All we ask in return is that if we answer your question, please help us spread the word about our book, Get More Fans: The DIY Guide To The New Music Business.

    I recently went to Fanbridge to sign up my band and start putting together a mailing list. However, some time between now and when I last visited, they have gotten rid of their free member option. For a relatively new band (less than 500 likes of FB), do you think it is worth the $20/month for the basic Fanbridge package? I know of a few other services that are free such as Mail Chimp. Is there any particular service you would recommend above another for bands?

    Thanks!

      Mailchimp and ReverbNation are both great.

        Thanks, Jesse! I went with RN for now since we need to have any account their anyway.
