What Working Musicians Are Saying About This New Book:
"Bob's plan for online music marketing is comprehensive, simple, and clear. With a no-excuses attitude and a hot-off-the-press list of current publications, blogs, and digital distributors, this book is a must-read for anyone serious about making a living as a modern musician in the Internet Age."
-Jack Conte, of the popular YouTube duo Pomplamoose, www.Pomplamoose.com
"A few years ago my wife bought Bob's Guerrilla Music Marketing Handbook for me. At the time I had no idea or vision of what to do. Fast forward three years and I've now built my own website and release all my music myself independently. I can safely say that without Bob's advice, I'd still be in the Dark Ages.
"And with his new book he's done it again. Even though I'm more web savvy now, this book has taught me how to improve my web business and how to connect better with my fans. Thank you, Bob (again)."
-Mike Monday, www.mikemonday.com
