ZERO BUDGET music PR & PROMO guide for your next release

In recent conversation, music marketing, promotion and PR have popped up loads. Usually along the lines of being out of budget and not knowing where to start if they were to attempt it themselves, this weeks video is inspired by these talks, I’ve put together a simple guide on creating and building up your network to execute effective promotional and PR campaigns FREE, for yourself as a musician or record label.

These are the same techniques I’ve been taught and thoroughly tested over the years through my label Sans Absence and more recently my self released music on AkitoMart Music Group.

This video will cover the basics once you have your assets finalised for the release, from setting up a press release to private music links, getting them sent to the right people using your new network of DJs & Journalists for consideration to getting your music shared, gaining you the vital exposure you deserve.
