Essential items every artist should have: (Part 5 of 5) Where is your dedication?

Now that you have your demo, business cards, a team and an online brand it’s time to use these tools to network. You must make an effort to use them every day. This is your job! A lot of people use the same tools, so how do you use them to your advantage and get a step on the competition? Dedication & Persistence.

You have to keep your brand updated. Come out with new songs or projects and release them strategically. Timing is everything. Use the launch of a new album to pursue radio and print interviews. Launch your album with a show. Just remember that every opportunity you take to market and promote yourself gets you one step closer to your dream. Make sure you set achievable goals and stick to them. Without a short term goal like “release my album by June 2010,” nothing will ever get done. You don't want to be 80 years old and have nothing to show for it.
