  3. I just read a Songstuff article on creating videos rather than simple email or text social media posts for fan engagement purposes. http://www.songstuff.com/music-business/article/fan_engagement/ There is a lot of interesting stuff in the article. Has anyone here done fan any number of fan engagement videos beyond simple music videos? What has been your experience with it? I'd be curious to know if you ended up hiring someone to regularly record your gigs and studio sessions, etc.
  4. I'm looking for some tips on how to use Twitter as a promotional tool. I started following a couple of people who are "big" in the business and they twitter a few messages a day with appropriate hashtags and obviously they get tremendous numbers of re-tweeds and favorites. I'm interested in some general guidelines or experience reports on how to build a solid Twitter community, best practices, things to avoid etc. Looking forward to your answers!
