Unlease your inner Indie Music Dominator! Write a blog!


Marketing is not just about wasting natural resources like florescent pink 8 1/2 x 11 inch pieces of paper.

It is about SEARCH ENGINE OPTIMIZATION.

If you have a band, recording studio, record store or t-shirt company you need a blog.

Blogs are:

web·log (wĕb'lôg', -lŏg') pronunciation
n.

A website that displays in chronological order the postings by one or more individuals and usually has links to comments on specific postings.

That is what they are defined as at answers.com, but what they really are:

1. Current, relevant, topical information posted in bite size chunks
2. Specific in scope.
3. Open dialogs
4. Found by people looking for answers.
5. Published at the rate of 3-7 times a week
6. Written by people are enthusiast and knowledgeable about a certain, specific subject or just plain clever

INTRIGUED? Then leave a comment. Ask me what you want to know.

As a self proclaimed member of the Web 2.0 revolution I ask you to join me! This epic journey into online marketing of your crappy indie band or whatnot will take you to new heights! IT MIGHT EVEN GET YOU THE #1 SPOT ON A GOOGLE SEARCH!!!
USE YOUR REAL NAME or BAND NAME or BUSINESS NAME

When you leave a comment you are getting a hit on the web!

Plus -- we don't have anything to hide here. The internet is not just for stalkers. It's for real people who are living a real life. Leaving comments using your real name or at least a link to your site builds your online reputation. (ask me why that's important if you care!?
