Alex's Independent Artist Marketing Tips

I often find myself helping out fellow artists with tips and tricks I have picked up over the years including everything from design to social media to tools I use in promoting The Jive Aces. 

I love to help friends and fellow artists succeed so I have started this blog with some tips, tricks and hacks to help to make promoting shows and artists easier and more effective. I am by no means an expert or social media guru, these are just some things which I have found useful and/or successful and hopefully, it helps some of you out!

Feel free to leave me some feedback in the comments under each blog entry. You can also contact me via the form below.
