Thank you for doing this. As always, you have your finger DIRECTLY over the pulse of what indie musicians most need to hear.

You are the best!

Thanks Bob - short, concise, to the point. I think many people are confused as to the fundamental function of a band/artist site and lose focus. You've given us a great baseline with which to build on.

MOST splendid, Bob. Relevant, and brief. I JUST got through listening to a 90-minute teleseminar that could have been presented in 20, which, of course, is another lesson for songwriters, as well as teachers of all kinds.

This message was truly a helpful explanation of relationship between social networking sites and the artist's own personal web site. Mr. Bob Baker redeems the term "marketing" from the swamp of commercialism and makes it a natural part of the creative person's life and work.
