 We Need Your Feedback !

If we were to tell you that you could have all the information you need to market and promote your music career and new releases - ALL IN ONE PLACE?  Right by your side in an easy to use handbook format?   Would you consider purchasing it if the price was awesome? 

Well, if so --  We have good news -- It's on it's way.  Our team and associates are currently in the process of authoring the most comprehensive and complete manual for promoting your music career that's ever been released.  Sure - we know what you're thinking - Another Music Marketing Book?

Well - This is just not another book. 

Benefits and The Difference From All The Others ....

I will grant you this – There are many books and websites written individually on any given subject regarding advancing, marketing and promoting your career as an independent musician.  We have authored and published some pretty amazing websites and blogs full of valuable information.  Some of the information found on the Internet is very good free information just as our network of websites, promotional newsletters and musiczines - all offering a ton of helpful information.

 

There Are Books on Marketing ....
There Are Books on P/R, and P/R Sources ....
There Are Books on Marketing Plans ....
There Are Books on Distributing Your Music ....
There Are Directories With Industry Contact Listings

Yup - There's Literally Every Book on Every Subject of Music Marketing and Music Promotion Available Out There Individually .....

 

 You can buy each and every one of these books individually and eventually accumulate most of the information contained in the Ultimate Indie Hand book – the difference being is that you’ll pay the same amount or close to the same amount for just one book on a particular subject as you will for the entire Indie Handbook which will contain all that same information, resources, etc  -- All in one place.  Not only will you find the all information previously published in a multitude of different places, but it's all contained in far more detail in the Indie Artist Handbook.  We are literally leaving no stone unturned.

Primary Benefit

 

The main benefit behind the Ultimate Indie Handbook is exactly as it is named – A Handbook.  It’s a reference guide where you can very easily refer to any subject-matter of promotion at a glance, rather than utilizing 20 different books or surfing 20 different websites.  We preface the Indie handbook with the work ULTIMATE – because it’s exactly that – absolutely everything you need to know – and how to do it – with resources to help you do it.  All In one place – at your side for easy reference.
