In this episode, we answer a question from long time listener, Wade. He voiced some concerns regarding PR and Publicists and specifically when is a good time to hire one and what can they do to further your career.
Below are the questions we cover:
"My band is currently building a package to launch very soon. We all have a lot of experience but this is the birth of this band. We just finished our EP, built a website, set up an online shopping store, acquired thousands of followers across the big social media platforms (without any audio), etc…Now that we have all our ducks in a row, is now a good time to cultivate a PR relationship?"
"We haven't played any shows. Will this stop a PR from being interested in us?"
"Should we release this EP, play some shows, build more of a following, record our next EP in four months and then pursue PR for our second release?"
We encourage you to send in any questions / comments you may have for us and the podcast and you can email me at AskBlasko@Gmail.com.
