Is There Any Hope For The Unsigned Artist ???

As an independent musician and recording artist, NO one knows better than you how it really goes…

You spend months, maybe even a couple of years, writing and producing the most incredible music you ever have, then getting it manufactured on CD for sale.

The first time you see the finished CD, it looks incredible and you think of all the radio stations that will play it…all the print newspapers that will want to interview you as an artist and review your music…and, most importantly, all of the possible sales as a result of people hearing your music, seeing, hearing, or reading your interviews, or reading reviews about your music in their favorite local newspapers and music magazines.

You consider using the do-it-yourself approach to make it all happen, and to save yourself both time and money, but doubt (and maybe, even fear) starts to set in as you quickly realize what a big job it is going to be, just in your own local or regional area.

And, since promoting and publicizing your music on your own in your own local and regional areas is already becoming challenging, you also soon come to realize that you can probably never make enough people know about your music on a worldwide/international level by doing it all alone and on your own.

So, logic tells you that if you are going to make your music known around the world and internationally, you are going to need some major help.

And, you are going to need to get the help of an experienced professional promoter or publicist who already does it fulltime, who knows all the inside tricks of the trade, and who has all the connections to make it happen successfully that you don’t have.

So, having come to this conclusion, you begin to seek out and contact promoters and publicists.

Then, the nightmare really begins…

Depression starts to set in with your truly feeling alone and helpless with the actual cost of promotion and publicity as you realize that the high-dollar, expensive rates and fees that the promoters and publicists are quoting you could operate a small country.  And, you realize immediately and instantly that you cannot possibly afford these rates.

So, at this point, the fear of, possibly, never being able to get your music out at a competitive level starts to hammer and eat away at you.  In fact, you may start to wonder if you will even be able to make back your costs and expenses of your production.

With not having the time, energy, or money to promote and publicize your music on your own, or having the money to afford to pay professional promoters and publicists, what can you possibly do?

Do you simply let all of your hard work, time, and effort collect dust in your closet or on your shelf? Or worse, do you start to give away your music as simply promotional pieces?  After all, this wasn’t what you had in mind or ever intended, was it?

Well, is there any hope for the unsigned artist?  For answers, please <click here>
