Hey everybody this is my first post here and wanted to share an experiement i'm in the process of conducting to build awarness for the group i'm working with. To give you some background I am from Jamaica where there is alot of young talent and so forth the problem is there is very few avenues for promoting christian artiste and that avenue is radio. I started experiementing with the free download for an email recently and that slowly building but wanted to raise more awareness of the group.
I decided to give in and called up the radio station to schedule some interviews for them and want to make most of it to promote our latest single and the free download. The problem is they are not doing any shows and i wanted to host a number of shows islandwide for free so i can get alot of people to turn to the venue and then sell tshirts to recoup cost and so forth. My only fear is that no one will buy anything but Jamaicans love to go the shows.
so was wondering if anybody ever tried doing a group of free shows to build awarness and grow there mailing list and facebook fan base?
Thats the groups facebook page
