Music marketing ideas for DIY artists, managers, promoters and music biz pros

One Way to Energize Your Music Career in 2011
The new Music Marketing Mentorship Program is now live. I created it to help ambitious artists, managers, promoters and other music biz pros energize their careers in 2011.
Please take a moment to see what it's all by clicking here.
I know you're busy, with a hundred things on your plate. So here's an extra incentive to jump on this now ...
Join by this Friday, January 14, and you'll get some great bonuses.
Like my exclusive audio interview with Martin Atkins, author of "Tour:Smart and Break the Band." He's performed with Johnny Rotten & Public Image Ltd, Trent Resnor & Nine Inch Nails, Ministry, Pigface, Killing Joke & has run Invisible Records for more than 20 years.
If you know anything about Martin, you know he's entertaining and filled with lots of punk-rock wisdom.
Here are two other great bonuses you can get:
Dave Carroll -- His "United Breaks Guitars" YouTube video has been viewed nearly 10 million times. It led to widespread media exposure in Rolling Stone, The New York Times, an appearance on The View and much more.
In this interview, Dave shares some great advice on ideas that spread, working with limited resources, what he learned about the media, and more.
Scott Ginsberg has turned wearing a nametag 24/7 into a lucrative career as a speaker, author and blogger. He's appeared on ABC's 20/20, Good Morning America, Fast Company, The Wall Street Journal, and more.
In this interview, Scott reveals his best ideas on how musicians can stand out and position themselves for success.
I recorded all three of these right before Christmas -- and they're good.
Get the scoop on this Music Marketing Mentorship Program page.
So ... are you in?
Happy New Year!
P.S. As I enter my third decade of teaching and inspiring DIY artists, managers, promoters and music biz pros ... I created this new program to satisfy a range of needs.
If you're on a tight budget, but still want to benefit from the program, there's an option for that. It starts at just $9.95 - yup, less than ten bucks gets you in.
If you want a more in-depth experience (including one-on-one advice from me) and are willing to invest a modest amount in your success, there's an option for that.
(Unfortunately, there's not an app for that :-)
There are four or five levels to choose from. One of them is bound to be right for you.
