Is Social Media Important For Your Band?

Screen-shot-2012-11-05-at-1.01.00-PMYES! Get social or die. It is not just about the music anymore. That ship has sailed.
Tip 1: Start with the basics and set up Twitter, Facebook and YouTube accounts.
Tip 2: Know your audience and have a unique voice. Find an angle. No one wants to hear about how great you think you are or try to get hustled another black t-shirt. Be engaging and be part of the conversation. On the other side of every computer is a human being and a potential fan. Treat others as you would want to be treated.
Tip 3: No niche is too small if it is your own… What is yours???
