can help? i how

Thread Contributor: olcyrusHow can I help?

#1
I'm stateside, seattle / portland to be more specific. I've never heard of this label and worked at the major record store doing the ordering for years.

I really like the site and the music here. How can I help? I bump this place and transfer mixes to other websites but is there written materials,stickers, promo cd's? Anything tangable that I can place or distribute?

been at the game for a good while so I know how to make the most of promo materials ect.

Anything I can do in this area of the world to boost awareness?

yes, we're really underground and diy Wink

basically i'm just selling records direct by mail order at a non-profit price. it's tricky because currently it only really works by this method; add shops and the price goes through the roof (postage to shops, sales tax, shop profit). maybe i should press more to bring the cost per unit down, but that means risking more money that i haven't really got

any suggestions? Wave

understand the pressing prices.I was unaware of the whole scenerio.

suggestions?
Might not be a new idea but, get some postcard size flyers with label logo or coolpic and other side put the release info,contact info, label info ect. You can present all that in a generic way as to not date them very fast. Or if you have decent deal on the cards you can always do new ones every 6 months or so.

now you have a box of flyer, great........ Mailing them out to designated people could be good. Can't send them everywhere cause it takes $$, but There should be a good disbursment of people here that live around the world. As always your local shops ect but I'm sure thats on lock. It would be another line on the budget but hopefully you will recoup more than is spent in the not so distant future.

contact any friends in the mag biz, ask to insert there. Same with record dist. Toss a few in with the orders that go out .We would get that stuff every now and then with orders.

do you have a mailing list? I should join if you do.

hmmmm,
