There are plenty of ways through which you can market your band. You have to first make yourself known. However, do not go about marketing your name all over the place. You need to do it tactfully. Otherwise, your marketing afforest will not be rewards.
Talk to your fans. They will get a feeling that your band is real and human, and not some robot out their trying to get their attention by sending those tons of promotional messages.
Social networking sites provide a good venue to accomplish that. Make friends on these sites especially people who have the same musical interests as you do. Talk to these people.
You should work to establish a relationship with them. Once you are successful in doing that, drop them a link to your webpage. You should also provide your visitors a chance to register at your website. If they register, allow them a chance to listen to some free music of yours as a token of your appreciation.
This is great bargain. You will get to know many people this way. You will get their e mails, and you can get in touch with them regarding any new updates. Do not ignore these subscribers. Write to them every once in a while.
Perform live. It is a great way to promote your band. You might think that this goes without saying. Yes, it is obvious but many bands give a really substandard performance when they get onto the stage as they are not well prepared. This should not happen to you. You should work hard on your live performances.
Other than that, you should also set up a table or something on the venue. From there, you can sell your music and other related things. Also ask your guests to sign up. The information they should be asked to leave should include names and e mails.
The above suggestions can really come in handy. Be sure to try them, and you will not regret it.
