First of all

Short introduction info about our website "".

So,a few years ago I decided to created this website to share all the knowledge that I 'I've gathered through the years. I always say that I can't learn how to write a hit song, because if there was a recipe for hit songs, every one would writing hit songs, and hit-songs would become normal. Compare it as if everybody would know the winning numbers of the lottery..and hit the jackpot..

What I do is giving advice on how to promote, and record your songs as a professional would do. Also, I try to find resources that accept demo submissions, and that's probably the biggest work, and also very highly targeted by our site's visitors..

Our site "" in numbers.

Our website has 190 pages online..home page included.

article: Music promotion versus music marketing.

This month newsletter will point-out the difference between music marketing and music promotion..

Simply explained this means nothing more then soft promotion and hard promoting machine.. Music promotion can easily be done for free.. Mouth to mouth is also promotion.. The social networking sites are an excellent way to promote your music for free..Promotion is not always for free.. There are promotion companies that ask a fee to do your promotion..

While music marketing is a promotion in a higher gear..Music marketing can be done by you to promote your newest CD, but in most case it's done by music marketing companies..They find out what the markets wants and start to deliver as fast as they can..and as much as they can.. The whole aim is to sell..nothing more nothing less..

Music Marketing...

Good marketing must roll like a good oiled machine..and hope the money is rolling in as much as possible..

Music marketing is mostly the job of record labels,entertainment companies,management companies.. They will try to market the band or music artist as best as possible.. Music marketing cost money, and the goal is to win the money back.. Music business is a hard business, so it's normal that music marketing is hard too..Not every one will win the money back,it can be a failure too.. So, music industry is a case of kill or cure, or sink or swim..

Music marketing is also more a case for bands and performing artists..They sign to a record label, and then recording a CD, and then they go on tour.. Then the music marketing train is on it's wheel to go on and on without any rest..People who win television contests as there are : Idols, talent, X factor,....these sort of contests.. Winners are drop down in the middle of a music business make let the money roll in..That's music marketing on it's best.

Promotion can be done by everyone who wish to get a level higher on the music business ladder..It doesn't has to cost a lot of money (but money surely can help..), and it's the best way for songwriters to promote their music to the industry..
