Show Notes

Digital, especially Spotify, should be used as a marketing tool not as your main focus for generating revenue. – Rob Hirst

This week’s guest is Rob Hirst from Fans for Bands, a PR, playlist pitching and social media company and These Bloody Thieves an independent record label based in Sheffield. 

I came across Fans for Bands when looking for playlisting support for a band I’m working with. Rob came recommended by a friend of the artist. But we first got talking when Rob reached out to another artist I’m working with after recognising him as the bass player from one of his oldest favourite bands.

Rob also does some marketing work for Frank Wilkes from the artist development platform Kycker who was interviewed on Episode 2

What is Indie Music Marketing?

This podcast is a resource for independent self-releasing artists. A place to hear from music marketers, industry professionals, successful artists, independent music champions and thinkers about how to focus on marketing activity that actually moves the needle and advances an artist career. It's so easy to be busy as an independent musician. It's much more difficult to be productive, busying yourself only with the right things at the right time.
