There are lots of ways to boost your band profile with more than music, although that is the most important part there are more ways you can be spreading the word.
Here are my top five ways to boost your band profile…
1, Have a great and memorable logo.
A great logo is one way to stay in peoples thoughts, something that can be easily drawn can end up everywhere from bags and pencil cases to club walls and your subconscious.
2, Take cool band photos
Kind of obvious really but the more interesting and visually stimulating the photo the more it will stay with people. Add a twist and give your band press shots an extra boost to stand out. Spend a bit of time planning with your photographer, make mood boards to get your image across to them.
3, Create amazing CD packaging, T-shirts and merchandise
Another way of standing out from the crowd is to put that bit extra into your album packaging and/or merchandise, make it something people would be interested in even if they have not heard the band, good graphics and typographically strong lyric t-shirts are a great way to share your band name
4, Conduct free giveaways through your website, newsletter, and social media platforms
Get your existing fans spreading the word of your music for you either through being a great band or by running give aways, free ticket competitions etc, use your imagination, what would your fans like from you?
5, Shoot a music video that is worth sharing
This is kind of all the above points in one hit, Strong logos, artwork, lyric videos, creative story telling, visually creative interesting music videos are a great and easy way to have fans push your music around the internet and social media spreading your music, message and band across the world
