Kevin discussed some amazing tools to use within CD Baby while preparing for your new music release.
So you want your fans to pre-save your song, or like your Facebook page? Well, what's in it for them? I know that sounds harsh but you need to understand that the market is saturated with independent artists asking music lovers to take actions like this. So how are you going to stand out?

As a hustler in the music industry, one of the most difficult aspects of DIY booking is simply finding the email address or contact information of a potential connection! I oftentimes call this “scraping” for an address. There are many ways to do this, but after countless hours of databasing almost the entire country’s venues, I’ve found the fastest ways to find the booking contact’s info below!
#1 - Facebook (Fastest, Most Revealing!)
Facebook is easily the fastest way to score booking email addresses for me personally. I’m not sure if it’s the fact that I basically live on the platform already, but a simple click to the ‘About’ section is typically more revealing than a few minutes sifting through a website.

You probably find yourself turning down quite a few opportunities due to it having an upfront cost like submission fees for festivals or shows or consideration fees for write-ups or playlists. I get it, this industry is known for scams and artists get taken advantage of often.
But you should understand the importance of taking risks every now and then. For instance, any kind of costs in relation to collecting your royalties should be #1!
Songtrust is a Publishing Administrator that collects publishing royalties for songwriters & publishers. And for most of you reading this, this includes YOU!
Even if you are signed up with a PRO like BMI or ASCAP as a songwriter & your own publishing company...... Songtrust can still collect worldwide royalties that your PRO doesn't. It's only $100 per year to ensure your publishing royalties are taken care of.
