Clearing Up a Misunderstanding
I recently announced the publication of my newest book, Guerrilla Music Marketing, Encore Edition. Most people realize that this is a brand-new title. But some apparently think it is simply an updated version of my longtime best-seller, the Guerrilla Music Marketing Handbook.
The Truth: Encore Edition is indeed a completely new title -- filled with material that has never before been available in book form. And best yet, the feedback I've been getting on it blows my mind.
Check out some of these early remarks from music industry pros:
"A mother lode of proven techniques to give your music the competitive advantage it needs. Two thumbs way up!" -Peter Spellman, director of Music Business Solutions and author of The Self-Promoting Musician
"This new book is a must-have for musicians who want to work at success, and not just dream about it." -Michael Laskow, CEO of TAXI
"Bob delivers the goods to grow your fan base, sell more music, and build your career. Apply these tips and succeed; ignore them and fail. It's that simple." -Jeffrey P. Fisher, author of Ruthless Self-Promotion in the Music Industry
"Powerful, useful tips that are sure to generate results for any musician."
-Madalyn Sklar, GoGirlsMusic.com
Another cool thing: Order the paperback version of Guerrilla Music Marketing, Encore Edition this month, and you'll get a bonus one-hour audio CD of a live workshop I did in Nashville (which many people forked over $299 to attend).
Are we clear now? Of course, we are :-)
