My newest promotional ideas

Postby mistertroll » Wed Jan 28, 2009 12:28 am

1. How about a referral forum of some type? We all seem to listen more or less exclusively to independent music and artists. What if we had a forum in which we could post links to artists we are impressed/touched/moved by in order to share them with the group? On listening, if one feels so moved, s/he might drop that artist a note reflecting on where the referral was found and inviting him/her to drop in and hang out.


2. Our Myspace page now includes 343 "Friends". Why don't we go out amongst them and listen to their music, and encourage those we find interesting to drop in and hang out?


We're not gonna grow, move forward, get anywhere, or be anything without some new blood/fresh meat. I think we need to get more pro-active in drawing people to us. We need to add to the "energy pool".

Good idea troll. A mate of mine's son is in a band in Dublin and they have a scene going with twenty or thirty of their mates, where they turn each other on to different indie bands...it's amazing how that kind of thing can spread. And you're right...a new injection of energy would help move the thing forward.

Good idea, Troll. Are we insisting that the artists we share are independent?

before we place the new forum into the fold, how about a catchy name for it ... and a short description? I can write 'em both but maybe ya'll have something in mind?

as well, I think for this forum, yeah - let's try to stay indie in nature. not that anybody'd be drawn and quartered for mentioning a label artist in passing but I believe the basic concept of troll's OP gears the direction to independent music. tho, on myspace for example, sometimes it's hard to tell.

if there's a big call for it - we could always add another subforum for sharing stuff, old and new, from the grimy hands of the majors.

anyway, discussion about what is and what isn't aside ...

how about "Indie Music Exchange" for the forum heading?

content being something like ....

"Have you heard some independent music you love so much you gotta share? Do it here. Leave the moon and the sun out of it please, just the little shining stars out there that need a little attention."

Am a total noob here, so anything I say is offered with the greatest respect to those who created, developed and have participated meaningfully in this site.

Let's not get bogged down about how indie an artist should be for inclusion.

I think this is such a good idea. I'm so looking forward to hearing what you guys can show me... and I have a few gems to share too.

Can we all agree that we'll use a 'loose' defintion for now? Put up artists that you feel are independent. Use common sense and a respect for the Forum's ethics. Songs you wish you'd written from artists that most of us have never heard of.

If it doesn't work, you can always pull it down.

My concern is that the to-ing and fro-ing might result in us not getting the thing going.

Again, my first sentence refers.

it's no problem chris ... in fact, I think kimmer knew she'd be starting a bit of a "thing" by her post. I think she was feeling frisky today. in fact, I know it.

but THAT debate is still active - signed vs unsigned, indie vs major or what was major or whatever ... but we're gonna press on and please lefty (that's what I'm gonna call 2LF from now on unless he pitches a fit, every group needs a lefty).

but - one things for sure, no sense in using the forum as a place to talk about the latest GNR's cd ok? no madge, no mel torme and no pete. (legends can never be indies). simple stuff. even radiohead and prince - no go. if we want another forum to discuss those major release bands, we can discuss that. but if a band is touched by a major label or for that matter - even distributed by one, let's leave them out.

and no top 40 from any country except transylvania.

I'm creating the forum now, with headings ... complaints - talk to roxi.
