Why You Too, Should Have a Music Blog

Are you looking to expand your fan base, while keeping your existing fans interested and excited about your music? Could you use an easily-accessible page where you can list your band's history of gigs, news, song releases, and everything else? Would you like to share more in-depth info with your fans than what you can post in a Facebook update or Tweet?

Many popular artists and bands keep a running, current blog page on their websites, and if you don't already, you should consider starting up a blog page too! A blog can be an invaluable tool not just for your fans, but for you personally as an artist/band.

Your blog can include anything and everything about you as an artist, from your official updates, news and upcoming releases, to personal thoughts and statements you'd like to share with your fans and site visitors. A blog is also a great archival tool where both your fans and you can look back and check important past information, or just reminisce on your great experiences and history as an artist.

Our friends over at Music Think Tank recently posted a great article about why your band needs to blog. They list 4 great points about how having a blog page for yourself as an artist/band can really benefit you and your fan base. Click Here to read more..

Check back often for more industry news, tips & tricks on how to make the most out of your promotion on Radio Airplay!

I think any kind of communication can upgrade your fan base along with each day doing something to add to it. Especially playing out. But yes, a music blog is something your fans would love as they like hearing from the actual artist not the firm to which they are signed. Or if not not the intern. :)

I have seen very few useful comments here. Most are advertisements. When I look to a blog like this for information and see it dominated by ads do you really think I am going to follow those ads.

Let's try to be more useful to each other and less self-serving.

Welcome to the real world. Do you really think anybody is listening?. Radio Airplay is one of the most inventive and clever money making Robots out there. Are your CD sales covering your costs? Have you had any CD sales? It's Ironic that I have to prove I'm not a Robot to enter this comment!!!
