#2. Reach out to magazines and media… It’s free promo!

As artists we need to do our due diligence and act for ourselves. Don’t wait for someone to do the work for you. We are all responsible for taking action. One thing most artists have not done is go out on their own to connect with journalists and the media. This is a huge mistake. The media is one of the best ways to get noticed and create your buzz. As a matter of fact, most artists reach fame and wealth from one simple media spot. Look around you. Look how many people get famous from one appearance! I recommend Skilly’s hip-hop blog distribution package. It’s works and they already have the system down.
