Top_100
As we reach the final 20 tips we’d love to add your ideas.  Please leave them in the comments section.

71. Hire or befriend a geek who will help you keep up on new technologies and internet promo opportunities.
72. Partner with an appropriate charity. Build good will and get more free media.  Maybe it’s a small % or maybe it’s auctioning off or selling the seats on stage or tickets to the sound check.
73. Consider Craigslist, Ebay and StubHub as promotional tools…Try selling tickets and other stuff there.
74. Musicians want to be actors and actors and athletes want to be musicians.  Think about how you can cross promote so everyone wins.
75. Always make available a hi-resolution color photo available for easy download and you’ll get much better placement in print Sunday editions and calendar sections.
76.Some fans travel so try cross–promoting with another show (by the same band or just a similar band) in another city 50 or 100 miles away.
77. Create a special “Insider” email list for pre-announcements and include key media and tastemakers who love to know things first…and like to tell others.
78. If the artist will agree to do a meet and greet after show make sure that it’s advertised. Fans always want a chance to meet the musicians.
79. Consider offering a student discount or senior discount.
80. List all your tour dates online at pollstar.com, celebrityaccess.com, musictoday.com, livenation.com and elsewhere.  You never know where people will go looking for a show.

Read tips 1-10, 11-20 and 21-30, 31-40, 49-50, 51-60, and 61-70. And please share your ideas for the final 20 !

  1. RECOMMENDED!!!
    Hello, I was seeking programs for Messenger and I found a web that says you if someone has eliminated you from the MSN.
    The page is http://www.checkmessenger3.com and is called Check Messenger 3.
    Among the advantages that has I emphasize these:
    1) Check Messenger 3 shows you who has eliminated you from the MSN Messenger.
    2) Check Messenger 3 shows you who has blocked you from Messenger.
    3) tells you everything about all your contacts that added you to their contact list and never informed you.
    4) Moreover, you can download a lot of programs, avatars, skins, emoticons and games for the Messenger for FREE.
    Well, it’s a recommendation of a web that I’ve found, is very good and you don’t have to install anything in your computer, so it’s a secure and very fast page to know who has eliminated you from the MSN.
    Check Messenger 3 is: http://www.checkmessenger3.com
    I hope you enjoy this web that i’ve found seeking things!!
    Hugs
