Media press releases are the first steps taken towards informing the public of new music, merchandise and events. Most music businesses include all forms of media and press materials such as audio, video, articles and more when preparing content for public sharing. The goal usually includes getting others to download or purchase their media before, during and after a public performance. Those who don’t involve media or press when gathering public attention find it difficult to build the public awareness they seek. Here’s some information to help along the way.

Social Media brings added attention by allowing followers and those who like to share articles, downloads, pictures and videos with others. In essence, our social profiles best serve us as traffic drivers to the web content we choose. We visit websites everyday for entertainment, connecting with others, growing our intellect and more.
