Hey everyone, so I wanted to set up this Blog to list cool links to sites that help unsigned bands promote themselves, to the DIY or get signed, whatever they want.
Please link to me or bookmark because I think this stuff will be useful, and I'll keep adding as much as I can.
Firstly a band must have a web prescence. You have to have a website. If you cant afford one get an Angelfire
site or you might still be able to get your music onto MP3.comSubExpanse
is a new one.
Another cool way to get your music onto the web is through your lyrics. You can post them at Palace Gallery Song Lyrics
, Indie Lyrics
So how do you PROMOTE your site or your lyrics, obviuosly hand out fliers around your town, but on the web, you might want to join a Topsites site like APIG Sites
or Ultimate topsites
Once oyur site is up, you need to get it onto search engines, and best place to achieve this is through Self Promotion
its free and effective for smaller sites.
FOr Google, the most important site Go here
. The other main site, and hardest one is DMOZ
ALso hit up your Local Scene band directories like Local-Bands.net
or Local Bands.net
