Hey everyone – just a brief update on the plan for a contest. I used to love our old “street team” approach to my last two War & Peace releases where we would use message boards to get the word out with art & info for people to email, print & post all over their towns. It was cool! But today, we have a tool to help us… social media. And while I’m not always savvy to the best ways to leverage these tools, I thankfully have a friend in Michael Regan to help me with a cool fan-based contest.
So what is it? Let’s try this…
I’m looking for a “fan of the day” who will take the Amazon link and share it on their Facebook, G+, and Twitter pages. I’m looking for fans who really get into this, and I will do my best to randomly pick one fan each day and I will thank them on my fan page and tout what they are doing so everyone can see how much I appreciate each and every one of you who helps me share this music with more fans!
On the day before the release I will pick my top 3 fans that have really gone over the top and send them a War & Peace fan pack, including a signed copy of the brand new Flesh & Blood Sessions (with new bonus track) and some goodies I’ll toss in just for fun!
I really appreciate you guys getting into this, and I’m looking forward to seeing how creative you all can get with your promotions. War & Peace fans have always been an enthusiastic group, and I know this is gonna ROCK!!!
Just a heads up – the W&P discs have come in from the plant and a box of CDs will come to us this week, so I was thinking… Lets set up a little contest to get the ball rolling early!
We’ll run everything on our Facebook Fan Page so check back there starting tomorrow for more details!
And by the way… just checked Amazon and its already listed there, including artwork, with an April 23 release date! in the spirit of our old “street teams” maybe you can throw that up on your Facebook wall or Twitter feed to help us spread the word… Thanx!!
