Marketing My Music and Band

Howdy Peeps! Chad here.

Its been a few weeks since I’ve been able to post . . . been out on the road with my band. . . trying to live that Xtraordinary life I’ve been blogging about here for the last couple of months. Talkin with a bunch of different folks about taking my music to the next level, ya know? Tryin to come up with all kinds of ideas….like, thinking outside the box as they say (by the way. . . who are “they” anyway?)

I’ve got to figure out the best ways to market myself, my song writing, my music in general, and of course my band as well. Well, we’ve done the T-shirt selling thing. . . we’ve done the CD release party thing . . . we’ve done the “do every live gig we can find” ,and wear ourselves out, thing. And all of that has done some good as to getting our name out there and marketing ourselves.

But. . . it’s got to be about learning how to work smarter and not harder – – yet getting bigger and better bang for our buck from  efforts we are putting in. Don’tcha think?

Ahhhhh . . . finally the big epiphany has dawned on me! I’ve got to start utilizing the internet more to put myself out there to a broader audience. Ya think?  Duh! I’ve just been slow to warm up to the idea of utilizing the massive promotional POP that can come from having a strong online presence. Well, after talking with my buddies over at Real Results SEO —  a local agency here in town, I’ve decided to finally take the big plunge . . . and go all out to have them create a kick ass website for me. At least that’s what they say– I know, I’ve got to trust and believe, right?

Since I don’t know much about it ( and don’t care to know, frankly), I have no idea what’s involved with that . . . or how long it might take to complete. I mean, Dude, I can barely figure out how to login here so I can write this crude blog! I know I need to take the time and be more consistent with it —  at least that’s what all my online geeky Bro’s tell me. But man, sometimes I’m so busy with chasing down my Xtraordinary life . . . I don’t have the time or energy to remember to log in and post something

But a change is gonna come . . . I PROMISE . . . at least I hope. I will make more of an effort to  post here more and more. Imma gonna chill  out and let them figure out to how to effectively market me online. Hopefully, the site will be able to offer merchandise, free music clips, concert tour dates, fan pages . . .  all the usual stuff you would expect from a RISING STAR like me ( umm . . .full sarcasm mode now with tongue planted firmly in cheek).

Com’on Man . . . it will be fun, right? A little exciting, eh? (for our two Canadian fans). Another step down the long and winding road (thanks John and Paul)–remember we are seeking the Xtraordinary life here . . . we hopefully, won’t run into lions, tigers, and bears, oh my! Wait just a darn minute . . .I believe I just mixed up my roads, didn’t I?

Anyhoo, I’ll keep yall posted as to the progress and launch of the new site once its up and running. Okee dokee?  But, as usual, if you Bozos want to comment about something on this blog, then fire away at me here.  Peace Out!

Chad . . . the Chadster . . . the Chadorama . . . the Chadmeister . . .  well, you get the picture.
