About 6 years ago as a freelancer, I wanted to announce a deal to all my manager / band and label contacts, that I was available at a cool little studio that I had struck a deal with, for a "special rate" (Studio lock out) + me).. So I invented - the "Jules Fax Update". I faxed a one page outline of the 'deal' to about 200 people - IT WORKED! This promo method has now got a sister - the "Jules Email Update". Basically once every two or three months I send out an update on what I have been up to. I try to report on 'cool' things..... If I have been doing some 'trash for cash' / unhip sessions.... they don't get a mention. A&R departments appreciate the info on who has been in band manager clients dig their recording time being announced to industry folk. Promotion is important. What do YOU GUYS do to promote your audio business? Advertizing? Word of mouth? Any cool ideas? Are you a private studio, with a little commercial work sometimes?
