How could you not include AirPlay Direct? Big oversight. By the way ask indie musicians what they really think about Sonicbids? A lot of dissatified musicians is what you would find.

People are really turned off by Sonicbids. Most artist feel out of the thousand who do apply only one is chosen. A lot of times you can book the same venue just by calling. I do like Sonic Bids for the EPK. AirPlay Direct is huge for promtions and it is free to start. Good catch Michael Harnett. A lot of great ideas on this page. Some def work better than others. Def look into TV. Running a commercial is very very cheap. Prime time in my area for MTV was only $40 for a 30 sec clip. It is making the commercial that can be expensive.

ArtistData (http://www.artistdata.com) can be really useful for #'s 16, 32, 80, and 97 .. It can help spread info across platforms and also get listed in local papers.

Sorry for the self promotion, but I thought it might be useful to people reading this list.

Hum. Tip 3: Always think of the fans first when making decisions.

With such tip, Bruce Springsteen would still be singing "Born to run" 2 or 3 times per night (well he would have never written "Born in the Usa" cause fans would have asked for "Born to run").

There is, according to me, the biggest danger of the Direct To Fan Marketing. Let not them killed your creativity by giving them what they really want: "what you've already done".

"Market to the niches" is something that stands out of all 100 tips. This is what can make a musician stand out.. find a niche and stick with it. Even with only a small number of fans, if an artist has a niche, the fans are very loyal. Trying to be simply another Pop Artist is a bad idea if you want to stand out.
