Indie Industry Advice

I've been in and around this music business for sometime now. So I remember the days you had to get your band into a major publication in order to get word out about your music. Fast forward to today, it's as easy as an add, friend request or follow. Artist and industry people do yourselves and fellow up-and-coming counterparts a favor. FOLLOW, FRIEND, FAN each other. Help spread the word! I can't stand to see independent artist not supporting one another. And a huge middle finger to upstart, independent artist on Twitter who have 100,000 followers but only follow 20 (Celebrity) people. And I'm only speaking to those artist who use the social networks to advertise and promote their brand, but won't promote other brands. "So you're not a fan of nobody?" F*#k outta here! Who do you think you are... Little selfish so and so's.... Word of advice to Twitter lovers unfollow (www.unfollow.com is a real site) those selfish F@#ks!! Not hatin'.... well maybe I am, call it what ya want! But on a more positive word... do follow for follow. If someone is cool enough to follow you, they're helping you. So follow, friend or fan back. Offer constructive critisizm. Collab with people, if you have a little studio rig. Listen man, collaborating is not just some cliche crap industry people do for fun. It's also a business move. You might have 50 fans in Texas. Well collab with sombody in Michigan or Canada even. That person might have 100 fans that dig you.So now your fans become his/hers, and their fans become your fans. Simple math. What could it hurt? -NUMBAS
