The Power of DIY Marketing in the Music Industry

I want to take a moment to share a little story that perfectly illustrates why we believe in the power of using specific, do-it-yourself professional marketing tools, especially when reaching out to media outlets to publish your project and story behind the music.

You see, a while back, we were assessing an upcoming new release for an artist who submitted a project to us for marketing. It was a debut single, and Sylvia had poured her heart and soul into her music, and we wanted to make sure it reached the right people in her targeted audience. The goal was to not only introduce her as a rising artist, but to spread her message of hope and faith.

DIY Marketing

Instead of going the traditional route, we decided to consult Sylvia at a very reduced fee (under $50) so that she could save money and be a fisher of men herself, as the Bible illustrates in Matthew 4:19. We explained to Sylvia, unless she had no time to spare in her schedule, paying for the specific services she requested was not necessary.

It doesn’t require a degree or extensive training to reach out to her target audience. She could take matters into her own hands and create a do-it-yourself campaign with the right tools, resources, and explanatory videos. We guided her to the perfect partner to get her set up!

We knew every dollar mattered, and we wanted to make the most of Sylvia’s limited budget. So, after providing an hour of consultation, resources, and encouragement, we turned her over to our partner, Constant Contact. We knew they could take over where we left off. Sylvia teamed up with a leading company / partner in mainstream marketing that provided her with marketing tools, easy training videos and the confidence to do-it-yourself!
