  8. 13. Now let’s plan your online tour…
  9. 14. <ul><li>Get ‘known’ </li></ul><ul><li>Get ‘gigs’ </li></ul><ul><li>Sell ‘stuff’ – merch, tickets, Cds, downloads </li></ul><ul><li>And ideally…. </li></ul><ul><li>Earn money – lots of it! </li></ul><ul><li>Become famous! </li></ul><ul><li>Get lots of media </li></ul>What most bands are probably trying to do through promotions… Does this sound like YOU?

  11. 16. DEFINE YOUR OBJECTIVES/GOALS PRIORITY 1
  12. 17. PRIORITY 1: Business plan & objectives <ul><li>ASK YOURSELF: </li></ul><ul><li>Market position Where are we now? </li></ul><ul><li>Goals and objectives - Where do we want to go? </li></ul><ul><li>Strategy / actual plan How will we get there? </li></ul>Let’s share….
  13. 18. So what are your SMART goals and business objectives?
  14. 19. “ I want to be a rockstar!” UN-SMART GOAL....
  15. 20. I want to secure a minimum of 1 paid gig per month, with a total of 12 paid gigs by the end of 2011, averaging $500 per gig. SMART GOAL....
  16. 21. <ul><li>You have to do this. The difference between a dream and a goal is written words. If you are not writing down your goals, they will remain dreams. </li></ul>Don’t just think about goals – write them down and tell those close to you why these goals are so important to you.
  17. 22. <ul><li>EXAMPLE: </li></ul><ul><li>To get 2 paid gigs per month in the local area </li></ul><ul><li>To gain 500 ‘likes’ to our Facebook page in 6 months </li></ul><ul><li>To sell 100 cds by December 2011 </li></ul>When it comes to business objectives – keep it simple – no more than 3 core objectives.

  55. 62.

  56. 63. Use Notes and @replies <ul><li>Facebook allows tagging within status updates on both profiles and Facebook Pages. The functionality is similar to twitter, in which when you include the &quot;@&quot; symbol in front of someone's name, the name then becomes clickable and links to that person's profile. </li></ul><ul><li>Promote a recent post on another companies page, using the @ function to tag the person in the note on your page. When you tag another page, your whole note will then appear on that companies page. Be careful though: spamming can get you banned, and if you're a competitor trying to appear on another companies Facebook page, they may do the same back to you. </li></ul><ul><li>If you're a new band that is opening up for a larger band, you can take the opportunity to get in front of new fans by announcing, and tagging, the other band in an &quot;upcoming events&quot; post.  </li></ul>
  57. 64. Encourage comments <ul><li>Post questions and polls and post timely information to encourage current fans to comment, share, and &quot;like&quot; your posts.  </li></ul><ul><li>So who went to the x gig last night? What did you think? </li></ul>
