New Blog Series: ‘Top 5 Things To Do…’
Like many of the good ideas we all have from time to time, this came to me out of the blue.
I’m privileged to work in what I consider to be one of most exciting emerging gospel music industries on the planet: the UK gospel scene.
I publish and aggregate features, articles, opinion, CDs, DVDs, Books, podcasts, video and more through the UKGospel.com digital platforms (UKGospel.com itself, UKGShop.com, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and SoundCloud – to mention just 6).
I do this alongside a team of friends, all amazing professionals or passionate, gifted amateurs.
I also work for Premier Gospel, one of the UK’s most established Christian media organisations.
All of this activity brings me in contact with many of the UK scene’s best known personalities. It’s an incredibly privileged life, and I’m the first to admit it.
Before you shoot me down for having too much of a big head, I say all of that to say this: I’ve been exposed to (and been part of) some amazing campaigns, promotional drives and marketing activity created by some of the best in the scene.
No more mistakes
I’ve always been a strong believer in the fact that no one – nobody at all – should have to make the same mistakes I did if they’re looking to tread the same (or similar) path I did as they develop their own project(s).
So this ‘Top 5 Things To Do Before…’ series gives you advice, tools, tips, hints and more.
Some of the blog subjects already lined up include:
The ‘Top 5 Things To Do…’
- To create a powerful social media strategy
- Before you request promotion from the media
- Before you even start recording…
- Before you even release your material
A word of caution:
I am not an expert. My word not the beginning and end of media, marketing or promotions.
I’m simply sharing strategies and thought processes I’ve picked up over the years: things I’ve seen work well for other people.
Who knows, they might just do the same for you. And even if they don’t, you’ll get some ideas that might spark something that you can build on and make yours…
Like they say in the West Indies: ‘soon come’.
