|How do you sell yourself? What has been your experience with record companies and representatives?
don't have that experience with record co.
Internet marketing. I have no interest in record companies and reps.
just played with pro's didnt do much studio work, Wish I could though.
I have absolutely no experience with record companies. So far the extent of my career has been playing at open mics and posting my songs on facebook/youtube.
I am (and have been) a do-it-yourself all the way.
No luck with record labels. Not too eager to pursue them either.
I haven't done much about selling myself and have no experience with record companies and representatives. If I have a concert it is usually advertised by whoever engages me.
Prior to the big online era, personally meeting record contacts, representatives and physically sending out demos was the key (and something which I spent a lot of time doing).
Nowadays it's mainly about mastering the art of social networking. You need every possible profile going (Myspace, Twitter, Facebook, Youtube etc) and you need to update them constantly as well as have new material on a regular basis.
Time's are changing but you have to put the effort in to reap the rewards. I've also found that giving away free releases occasionally can help raise your profile (as well as featuring videos and material on places like Youtube)
Hmmm the interraction I have had with companies etc was a bit sketchy and they are always looking for that something that not everyone has.
It was annoying, we definatley had seomthing in Lo Ego and maybe we just didnt do enough to nurture it to become a great band, but the labels were to blame aswell.
We did lots to sell ourselves, the usual promo cd,s we even gave away free vodka jelly at a Christmas gig, maybe that wasnt such a great idea after we watched the video of ourselves!
It all depends on the record companies, I know many people that are doing very well with the label they are on even when the first label that signed tham has gone under and theyve been left hanging...
Well I can't really answer that question, because I'm just one of those girls in this world that is still trying to get signed to a label, but I am sending my application to a couple of different labels soon, after i finish my demo.
None, I have had no experience with ither.
word of mouth works for small time local DJ's just fine. Otherwise, I put an occasional ad in advertisers, I have a website and now a days: facebook, myspace and twitter are extremely helpful
I sell myself as a drummer, in search of a band to sesion for, to tour with, or to perminantly join. I would also say that I'm perfect for any studio work such as for TV, radio, etc etc.
well i haven't really had any experience with record companies. only with my band trying to get as many gigs as we can. and same with my solo career as well.
