Hey. So I got a rock&roll album coming up in a month or so and I'm wondering how to go about promoting our music. The guys I'm playing with have all recorded albums with other bands before but none of them has any idea of marketing or any kind of promotion. I'm the only one with even a basic understanding of how these things work. Since it's my first time doing an album, however, I've no idea which tools and platforms I should use. When I read andychamp's topic about Drooble I realized I can't try all of them because as someone already stated, there have been numerous experiments throughout the years and a person only has so much time. I was wondering if any of you have any experience with any of them. I already made an account on Drooble and I'm pretty happy with it, lots and lots of musicians from lots and lots of countries, users are very active, post a lot of music, there's free tools to use - all in all they've done a great job so far and I hope hey don't die anytime soon. I also used to be on Giggem before it shut down a while back. Bandhappy was pretty awesome but it went down as well. I know BandLab is one of the really good ones but have never tried it. Same goes for PledgeMusic and Audiomack, which I've heard good stuff about. In terms of quick helpful tools there's also Splice's BeatMaker which I've used once or twice but that's basically it. As I said, in the beginning, the album comes out in a month, maybe a bit more, which doesn't really give us a lot of time to explore every option out there. I was hoping there would be some of you who'd have tried some of the platforms I mentioned and would be able to recommend something. I'm sure you must have experience with other websites I haven't even heard of. Thanks, I'm really interested in what you guys think and any opinion would be highly appreciated.
