Wanna get more media exposure? Have you run into roadblocks in your search for publicity? Perhaps you don't even know where to start.

Section 3: Internet Promotion Strategies
Forget all the techno-babble and complicated crap you've read about marketing on the Internet. Bob shares his unique perspective on using the Net to seek out the music fans most likely to be attracted to your distinct style of music -- and how to use simple, affordable tools to communicate with them online. Using basic e-mail, simple web site strategies and common sense, you can become an Internet marketing powerhouse.
Section 4: Empowering Ideas and Mental Kick-Starts
Ask any professional athlete and they'll tell you: The mental game is every bit as important as the physical game on the playing field. If your mind is cloudy, if your ideas are stale, if your attitude is sluggish ... you'll have a tough, uphill battle ahead of you.
