Google Alerts can be a great way to monitor what is being said on the Web about your act or about your band. It won’t work if your artist name is very generic (like “The Lovers”, or “Joe Smith”). But if you have a unique and original name (like “Bass Kleph”), make sure you set an alert for it (and use brackets, so it only searches for your name).
It’s also excellent for monitoring what is being said about your company, and that’s exactly how we found out that a number of our members were building sites on Bandzoogle and blogging about it, as part of Ariel Hyatt’s“Music Success in Nine Weeks” Blogging Challenge. Latest example isMeghan Morrison who, in a recentblog post explains in details the process behind creating the header image for her site.
The Music Success in Nine Weeks program seems like an excellent series of advice on how to market your act, so please let us know in the comments if you’ve read it and how helpful it was. And definitely let us know if you’re blogging about it... before Google does ;-)
