You are the promoters!
Your are our best promoters!
I decided to open this tumblr profile for “all my faith lost …” because a web-site is great if you have the time and the skills to properly update it and design it. A blog is probably not as beautiful as a web-site but is easier to keep up to date with our activities and more effective for comunication with fans.
This is very important to us because our fans are our best promoters. In this post I just want to suggest you a short list of things you can do to help us. I am not talking about money, I guess it’s a hard period for a lot of people here in Italy but in a lot of other countries too. In this case I am talking about little things that may appear not so useful, but that really can help other people to find our music, to know our music.
First: Talk about us
Yes, talk about us, about our music, about our songs. If you have a personal blog and 10 minutes of free time post something about us. Just a few lines describing why you like our music, how you discovered our music. Or talk about your favourite album! Put a link to our Bandcamp page (http://www.allmyfaithlost.bandcamp.com) so people can listen to our music and can eventually buy something.
Put some tags to your post ( all my faith lost …, music, gothic, ethereal, acoustic) and publish it!
Are you listening to our music right now? Have a Twitter account? Why not tweeting about the fact that you are listening to all my faith lost …?
Put a #listeningto tag (or not … ) and tell your followers what song or album you are listening to! Then follow @no_faith_left and @allmyfaithlost_ and probably I will find you and retweet you :)
Second: Write reviews of our releases
Hey, wait … I’m not talking about professional reviews on music web-sites or blogs (of course, if you run a music web-site, do it!).
In this case I am talking about iTunes, Amazon and every other online store that sells our music and lists (discogs.com) our releases. I don’t know about you, but before buying something (online or not) i like to read reviews, compare them and try to be sure that I am about to buy something I will enjoy.
Third: Use our music as soundtrack!
Do you enjoy shooting videos, shorts, or movies? Do you enjoy making “How To” videos for YouTube or Vimeo? Yes! Well, put our music on them. If the videos or movies are professional and will be released via big companies you need to contact us for copyright stuff / permissions but I guess that who makes this kind of movies knows perfectly how it works.
Talking about YouTube or Vimeo … well, just put our music and, if you can, put the credits at the end of the video. If you don’t have a couple of seconds on the video for the credits put them in the description of the video and don’t forget the link to our Bandcamp page!
These are just a few ways to help us, if you have other ways in mind apply them!
Thanks for reading. Feel free to share and re-blog.
