The days of walking into Tower Records or The Warehouse are long, long gone. Gone are the days of painstakingly reading illegible titles from the titanic wall o’ audio cassettes, gone the days of row after row of CDs which must be lifted from the box before their contents can be known, gone the days of endless columns of shrink-wrapped vinyl LPs. Audiophiles know that all these formats are still available and popular to some stereoheads, but industry movers and shakers also know that there’s no money in hard audio merchandise, anymore. The record store has almost totally gone online.
There are good things and bad things about this. For one thing, it’s just no fun to click around a website (Amazon, say) to check out stuff you’ve never seen or heard before. There are practically limitless amounts of music coming out every day, and without any inside information, you might as well just pick the first thing that comes around and isn’t terrible. After all, you could otherwise be online all day. The old-fashioned way let you pick up an LP, turn it over in your hands, and check out all that awesome artwork. You never knew what the fold-out records looked like inside unless you unwrapped them, though, and that was cool, too! Continue reading
Making this Top 10 list is not easy by any means. In making this list a number of factors have been considered. For 2013, there are 10 new winners in seven categories. Honda was a no-show last year, but it has picked up three slots on this year’s list with the redesigned Accord and the CR-V and Odyssey. Two European automakers return to the list; the BMW 328i and the Audi A6 are those carmakers’ first entries in our winners’ circle in 10 and 13 years, respectively. Also new are the Scion FR-S and Subaru BRZ sports-car twins. And the Hyundai Elantra has returned after a one-year hiatus. No pickup was chosen because GM’s and Chrysler’s full-sized models have been revamped and we haven’t yet tested them.
For Mid Sized Sedan the Honda Accord was chosen for its 2013 redesigned style, and sending this sedan to the top of its class. This new model is roomy, nice to drive, well equipped, and very fuel efficient. With its four-cylinder engine, the Accord squeezes out 30 mpg overall and 40 on the highway, which is as good as the tiny Honda Fit. Higher-trim models have safety features seldom found in this category.
This year’s sports car of the year Scion FR-S and Subaru BRZ co-developed by Subaru and Toyota, which builds Scion vehicles, both are exhilarating to drive, with super-sharp handling, excellent braking, and ample acceleration. Continue reading
The first thing you need to know about selling your music online as an artist is that it’s very slow going for most musicians who try to sell their albums from an official artist’s website. Even gigantic bands playing live music concerts regularly like Metallica and enormously popular pop stars like Jay-Z sell hardly any music from their respective official sites (metallica.com or jay-z.com, perhaps) compared to what they sell from outlets like iTunes and Amazon. This is because selling music online is more than simply making songs available.
Selling music online requires placement on sites who are likely to show up on page 1 of a Google search. This means giant companies like Amazon and iTunes. But how does one get one’s music on iTunes to begin with? The answer is in online music distribution companies. These crews are experts at getting your music from point A to point B, except that point B is actually hundreds of online music stores, rather than just one site (Mondo Tunes boasts more than 750 stores in their distro channels, in fact).

The number of different marketing tactics a company can pursue to attract new clients continues to grow with new avenues opening and old ones closing. Before pursuing your marketing efforts it is a good idea to reflect on the “Raspberry Jam Rule” by Gerald Weinberg. In his book the “The Secrets of Consultine” he states “the wider you spread it the thinner it gets”. In our industry this translates to the broader an audience you try to reach the weaker an impact you will make.
Don’t broadcast a message to a general audience. Instead, focus in on more targeted and specific client. Keep in mind that each client is obtained one at a time. In order to obtain that client you will need to lore them in one at a time much like a fishermen does. Each fish that is caught is seduced into what looks like a tasty meal. When you send out your message don’t use aggressive language. Instead, gently suggest it to attract your ideal client.
One tactic that small business can use to attract clients is by giving them something of value. This can be new facts, new ideas, helpful advice, or anything else that a potential client will find useful. Once you figure out what it is your ideal client needs or is searching for you can use a variety of different mediums to reach them. Your goal when creating your information should inspire them to contact you to learn more. Do not get caught up in impressing your audience. A few ways you can send your message is by video, email/newsletter, radio, blogs, press releases, seminars, article submissions, and web pages as well as a variety of other media. Continue reading
