Bob Baker's The Buzz Factor
Music marketing tips and self-promotion ideas for independent songwriters, musicians and bands.
This Special Report came out a few years ago, so I've taken it off the market until I can publish an updated version.
149 places to submit press releases,
get reviewed, uncover PR connections and promote your music on the Internet
The Internet is big. Really big.
You know you need to use online publicity sources to promote your music ... but where do you start? There are so many. How do you know where the most worthwhile music web sites and e-zines really are? Now there's an answer ...
"As an active self-promoter of my music, I have scoured the Internet seeking places where I can get the word out and win over new fans. Even though I've spent hours researching, I didn't come close to finding all the resources that Bob has listed in his Online Music PR directory. These media contacts will help expand your existing network and promotional avenues. I highly recommend it!." -Laya Fisher, singer/songwriter, www.layafisher.com
