Ah, the Internet...

In the old days promoting a band was all about word-of-mouth, posters and touring, touring, touring. I guess it still is in a way, but most people are using the Internet for greater exposure.


Now, instead of a poster lost among a myriad of others on a wall somewhere in a blind alley, you can have a profile among a myriad of others on one of the many social networking sites. Or many profiles.

The difficulty is keeping the content fresh, but we've only got so many songs recorded and so many photos. It takes one hell of a lot of time and effort too.
