Music Promotion Online – Do Friend Adders Really Work?

Music Promotion Online can be a really time consuming task which is why most bands and Music Internet Promotional Companies will use friend adder software. The question is not does this software work, because it does. I have even used it to increase artist’s (whom I won’t mention here) fanbase to 1,000 per week which is a pretty safe number, definitely do not want to do any more than that. Then there are other programs that will increase plays, claiming to push you to the top of the MySpace Charts. I am pretty skeptical of this claim and anyone using it should be to.

As a seasoned Internet Marketer I know there is an automation software for nearly every online task. For video submission, social bookmarking, article submissions, as so on. MySpace, Facebook and other websites can spot adds that are being done by a bot or human, but that’s not really the object of this post.

The subject of this post is whether or not it works for creating a QUALITY following. The benefit is in the Quality of the Fans not the Quantity of fans. It is better to have 500 die hard fans that buy your stuff than 5,000 + fans that don’t even visit your site.

So… how do you ad quality NEW fans… you need to know your fan… Know your customer. Marketing 101

And you need to go where they hang out.

What is their age range, ethnicity, sex, where do they hang out (meaning what sites do they visit)?

Here a couple of tips for getting this data: Check out Quantcast register your site/sites; its free and you can start tracking the demographic of your own visitors… while you’re at it I would also register with Alexa.

Another thing you can do is conduct a search in Quantcast of a site you think your fans would frequent and gather data that way.

But the best way is really to survey… this can be tricky as there are definite ways to conduct a successful survey. Through this method you can really get to know your fans and then go were THEY are and deliver to them what THEY want.

Combine all these pointers with a good friend adder and you may have yourself a good way to increase a QUALITY fanbase and increase sales.

Commercial Loans – Take All Aspects In Consideration

As the saying goes, taking a loan is easier than surviving with it. A shrewd businessman is one who borrow but with an eye to repay it as soon as possible. Sometimes, business requirements arise because you get a new business order hat is hard to manage within your own business funds. You obviously cannot afford to lose big business opportunity only because the funds are not there.

These and other similar situations force you to take help of external sources of financing. These sources may be temporary or permanent, depending on the nature of funding. Large body corporate often have huge financial needs, and therefore, they resort to public financing by inviting deposits or going for a ‘rights issue’ meant for the existing shareholders. On the other hand, a new business concern or sole proprietorship undertaking would obviously not be able to take benefit of that sort – neither are these meant for them.

Before applying for commercial loans, first of all decide the type of debt financing that your business firm will be comfortably able to get. If you do not own any property in the name of firm, secured commercial business loans are out of question. You will have to rely on loans that do not require any security. These loans will offer you a limited amount – upto £25,000. The interest rate is likely to be little more than what you can get by pledging some property. The amount of loan that you can qualify for can be increased by involving some property in the loan transaction.

Here Are 3 Reasons To Build An Information Products Business

1) One way to think about the internet is millions of units of information. No matter what type of page or site you go to, there will be some kind of information that’s aimed at targeted visitors. In many cases, information can be just what you need if you have a certain problem and need a solution. If someone has a skin problem like acne, for example, there are lots of websites that can suggest cures. You might wonder, however, how you can tell if the information on any given site is reliable. When you start looking at many different sites, all offering a different answer, you can get frustrated and confused. That’s why many people like information products, as they offer digestible solutions in a single place. Selling your own information products can be very lucrative, and we’ll be discussing three benefits you can enjoy by starting this kind of business.

2) One of the best part about marketing on the Internet is that you can test and track everything easily. So when you’re aiming at selling products online, you’ll see how easy it is to test new ideas and track your performance, and tweak it for improvement. For instance, you may want to market an info product that you hope will appeal to people in a certain niche. You’d be able to do some testing in this market before investing too much time or expense into it. You can use various online resources to track how your product launch performs, such as website visitors, click-through’s and so on. This tracking ability is one of the biggest advantages to marketing on the internet, as you can plan your strategies very precisely. Do not even worry if you are not any kind of expert in the niche you are working in. Keep in mind that you have to get all the other parts right such as the business end of things. However you plan to market it, then that is what you have to take care of after the book is written. You do not even have to research the book, you can have the writer do it.

3) An information product business can be run largely on auto-pilot once you’ve set it up. Once you’re done with the initial setup, you can easily put it on autopilot and let it take care of itself 24/7. Your automated tools can take peoples’ orders, thank them and send them their products while you go on vacation somewhere. No brick and mortar business can give you that level of automation.

Hopefully, you’ve come to realize from this discussion that marketing your own information products is something you’re capable of doing. The main consideration is to always provide your target market with information that it needs and wants. This will help you stand out from the competition and at the same time help you establish your business in no time. Just take it one step at a time; do your research, create your info product and start promoting it.
