Conquer the College Market – By getting radio play at local colleges, playing shows at the colleges, and cafes and coffeehouses that are nearby your band will conquer the college market. It may take some digging to get the proper contact information for booking college gigs but it is extremely worth it. A group can earn easily enough to live off of for a year one in the college market.
Open Mics and Paid Venues – Open mic nights are a great starting point and testing ground for new musicians. They are open to everyone and you get your chance to show the venue owners and bookers what your band is made of. This should open up several opportunities for your band to start to receive paid gigs as a result.
Internet Promotions and Marketing Campaigns – Utilizing your email list and social networks your band can really start up a buzz. Your band should be constantly marketing to your target demographic month after month, year after year. This works well for companies and will work well for your band too.
Active Email Lists – The larger the better. Email lists keep you and your fans in constant communications. This is a great way to make online sell because those on your list usually are your hardcore fans.
Freebies and Other Swag – By giving out freebies and swag items with your band’s url address you are exposing more and more potential fans to your band. This works very well.
These are just a few of the easier tactics your band can tackle whether you are just getting going in performing and marketing your band or a seasoned veteran. There are many other ways you can quicken your success factor and gain more exposure, but these are most of the main ones for making a splash in your local market. Once you conquer your local market you can simply magnify these tactics to your entire region, and then the nationally and then…possibly…internationally! Take good care and utilize all of these high speed music career tactics and look to see your music career excel.
