Resources

Here you will find links to some of the resources to help you in your efforts to GET MORE FANS and SELL MORE MUSIC!

I thought it would be helpful to build a page where you can find links to all of the tools and services we talk about in the Artist Promotion Blueprint. I’ll add to it as I discover more so I recommend you bookmark this page for future reference.

Disclosure: Please note that some of the links below are affiliate links and I will earn a commission if you purchase through those links. These are all things that I have experience with that I am recommending because they are helpful and are companies that I trust, not because of the commissions that I may earn from you using these products. Please do not spend money unless you feel it’s for something you really need and will help you reach your goals.

Website Tools:

 

  • Bluehost.com – This is my preferred web hosting service. All of my websites are hosted with BlueHost and I have never had a single issue with the service. You can have unlimited domains on a single account! This means you pay once and you host as many unique websites as you wish. The cost is cheap and the control panel interface is excellent! (No need for an FTP client to upload files) Also, they have a “one click” wordpress instal feature. This makes it very easy for the unexperienced to get started.

 

  • Hover.com – Hover is a domain registrar. Their simple and clean interface makes it very easy to search for available domain names and their prices include domain privacy (normally an extra $10 or so). Visit Hover through this link and get 10% off your domain name!

 

 

 

  • WooThemes – A great source for both free and premium wordpress themes. If you’re not a web designer but want to up your game, this is a great place to look!

Promotion Tools:

 

  • AWeber – This is the ultimate email list management service! As well as managing your lists and generating the extremely valuable opt-in forms for your website, Aweber allows you to setup email “auto responders” to automate the process of building relationships with your fans by providing them with valuable content that “drips” out over a long period of time. THIS IS A MUST HAVE!

 

  • TweetAdder – This is my favourite Twitter tool ever! With TweetAdder you can completely automate your Twitter campaign. Create a list of tweets and TweetAdder will “drip” them out to your stream over time giving the impression that you’re sitting on twitter all day! You can also use TweetAdder to automatically follow people base off a keyword search or people who follow certain other people. You can tell TweetAdder to unfollow people who do not follow you back (if you want) and much much more! This tool is a huge time saver and worth every penny.

 

  • Welcome Gate – Encourage new visitors to opt in to your fan list the first time they visit your home page.

 

  • Social Review Engine – The Social Review Engine is a powerful and feature rich website and product reviews plugin built for WordPress powered blogs. Simple to use, easy to setup, and installs in minutes.  An Instant Review solution which can provide Rich Snippet Microformat SEO Optimized Reviews or Testimonials with Social Media Integration which can power a massive increase in Search Engine Rank and Social Traffic.
