Once you have a band, have music, etc how do you go about promoting it? What variables do you think come in to play when you promote your band? Logos, band name, song titles, Facebook/Myspace layouts, contacts, potential management, booking gigs, merchandise, image, etc... I know a lot of bands here do a decent job of promotion, and my little project is at absolute ground one. We're pretty close to having a couple of tracks to put up on a Facespacecloudthing, but that's the extent of it. We don't even have a name yet . So before we hop into existence, are there any steps we can take to assure a safer road? We don't expect to get huge by any means, but it'd be cool to go somewhere as well. That's the thing, we really haven't discussed this at all. But should we worry about logos, website layouts, how aesthetically pleasing/the nature of our band name and how it reflects on us before people hear us, etc?
