One of the reasons I follow the music industry so much is because bands have to promote themselves in a similiar way we do in our industry and so seeing what they're doing can help us wedding photographers market ourselves.
Recently most bands are suffering because the labels are afraid to market the bands using the new methods but there is one band that is soaring and doing so many things right and that is Britt Nicole! You may remember I posted about her back in the day.
First off she (or someone) actually uses her email list to keep in touch with her fans. I've signed up for other bands mailing lists and received nothing in years.
Secondly, she uploads new content often. This takes effort and some of the photos and videos are from her very own cell phone. Very cool.
Third, she has a place where fans can upload their own photos - brilliant!
Fourth, she gives her fans free stuff! Yea. Free is good! ...and when I get free stuff I almost always BUY stuff! She's smart...and makes us aware of deals going on with her music.
