I first starting reading Bob's advice when I bought a hard copy of his Guerilla Music Marketing Handbook a few years ago. This is absolutely cram-packed with tips on every aspect of promotion - definitely highly recommended! Also, sign up on Bob Baker's website for his buzz report.
5つ星のうち4.0Nice reminder - but don't expect revelations!
What I think is very important to mention: If you are already actively working in the field of music (no matter if you are a songwriter, band, label or other service) then you will NOT find any NEW information in this book. When I read the first activity I thought 'OK.. I just spend some money in vain for a book with 151 Captain Obvious activities' (it was something like 'be sure to have your own CDs in your car').Why do I still give it 4-stars? Because the author, Bob Baker, mentioned this himself (..in the book). The book can be used as a reminder or a guide to quickly use some free-time productively, because I think everyone knows the feeling of wanting to do something productive and having some spare minutes. The activities are mostly very short & easy and might lead to more ideas from YOUR part. In cases like this I think the book is, as mentioned, a nice reminder for some spare-time productivity. Because of that fact and because of the low price I still think it might be useful for different kinds of artists. Still, DON'T expect revelations and things you did not know before.
I love this book for several reasons, it is very informative, it is an easy read and if you put some of the suggestion to practice you do see results, in my case it was almost immediate on what was my super neglected Twitter account I put to use a couple weeks f the suggestions from this book and within an hour I doubled my followers, I like the fact that a lot of this suggestions take just a little bit of time but actually has a punch, I would recommend this book to anyone that has published or released a CD or book. And it is true we don't have to spend hours and hours on marketing a little bit with consistency goes a long way like a drop of water every 10 seconds adventually will fill a bucket.
