With attention grabbing professional graphics. You need to make sure all you mixtape cover designs, single cover designs flyers, and logo designs are hi quality and brand you the right way. Once you have a designer that you work with they will naturally get the feel of what type of overall look you’re going for instead of having to contact a new designer for every single project and hoping they can match the feel you’re looking for.
3.Publicist-Its funny how you never hear artist mention their publicist and how they helped them catapult their career to the next level, but the music publicist is a key player when it comes to building an artist brand and music career. The publicist job isn’t to book you shows or get you a record deal they work the media and control how your image is portrayed to the world.A publicist already has connections with major music blogs,magazines, and radio programmers and they will create you press presses, and help craft you a custom bio so you can get your story to all of these outlets.Having a publicist or running a Pr campaign is mandatory if you want to get in front of thousands if not millions of fans quick.The good thing is that it’s not that expensive to run a pr campaign or even hire a publicist to try them out.
