How To Create A Grand Slam

Music Marketing Plan

on Tuesday, September 17, 2013

at Media Tech in Houston, TX

Get a music marketing plan started in one session. Boost the effectiveness of the plan you already have. A great marketing plan doesn’t have to be complicated. A good one can be just one page long. Spreadsheets, graphs and numbers are not necessary.

But you NEED a plan. Lack of a good plan destroys more careers than lack of talent. Good marketing is simply getting your work to the largest number of people at the lowest possible cost.

These music marketing experts give you the facts you need to take your artist to the top in this special NARIP session.
