I have been looking at ways to increase the profile of the band in social media and trying to get better at using all the different platforms.
I have started scheduling regular posts using Hootsuite and although this is a simple tool to use I have found it unreliable in cross posting between platforms. I really was hoping that it would be a one-post shop but it is looking like scheduling on the native platforms is a better way to go (perhaps it works better if you pay for it?).
In an attempt to spread the word about he wonderful music being produced by local songwriters I have also started doing a monthly music mix in Spotify that features song writers from the North West of England. I am hoping that this will provide a welcome extra marketing push for the song writers and introduce the North West public to some great new music. It is early days on how to best market the playlist, I have done the usual posting on social media but I think there will be many options that I have not yet thought about. A whole new world of stuff to think about (and divert me away from the creative tasks….boo).
Anyway, here is a link to the playlist, do give it a listen and check the other music out from these great song-writers, and if you happen to be in the North West of England go and find them live at a venue near you.
