What is the best way to promote my group?

The Internet has become a vast web of people from all over the world building relationships, engaging in conversation & ultimately expanding their networks. The following are the five most useful online communities you can be a part of to begin expanding your network and building solid artist-fan relationships:

1. MySpace Music


On MySpace you can post songs, videos, pictures, have blog entries, tour information, band information, etc. It’s almost like an electronic press kit resume of sorts all on one page.

2. Facebook
Although Facebook hasn’t yet developed a full fledged Music section like
MySpace has, there are still thousands of users you can connect with, many of
whom are not on MySpace. On Facebook you can create a fan page that
functions almost like a group for users to join. Similar to MySpace, you
can post pictures, videos, discography and allow fans to write on your Wall.



3. Create a Website
Many musicians start off with a MySpace Music page and eventually create their
own website. This helps legitimize yourself (or selves) and allows you to
do more, such as creating a forum, for your fans to discuss your
music/concerts/news/etc. Having your own website allows you more freedom
to get creative and provides a way for people to find you via search
engines. For example, if you create a blog on your website and use key
word rich text, there is a good chance someone searching for your style of
music will land on your page



4. Twitter
What’s unique about this micro-blogging social network is that it allows your
fans to get a further glimpse into your life/recording process/recommendations
and anything else you can fit into 140 words. Especially now with phone
applications, your Twitter followers can get updates sent directly to their
phones that way they can stay connected with you at all times.

5. AGQC Social Depot Platform


provide various tools and widgets, musicians are allowed to spread
their music and information. The more people you invite the bigger the Depot
will grow. AGQC can be integrated with Facebook (over 400 million users) and
twitter.



Ultimately you should get as creative as possible with your social networkingAnd remember to always give your fans a reason to come back by posting as frequently as possible, giving them downloads or allowing them to stream your album before it releases.

The purpose of the American Gospel Quartet Convention is to re-establish Jesus as the foundation of our music. We further want to return to living what we sing about. Next, we want to learn more about the business of music and finally, we want to promote wholesome fellowship. The American Gospel Quartet Convention's purpose remains intact as attendance has grown from serving several hundred in 1993, over five thousand in 1997 and 1999.

The mission, as the Lord directed, is to call the gospel quarteters back to our foundation - Jesus Christ. In doing so, twenty conventioneers have been saved and/or baptized during the convention. We have also created a learning environment for quarteters interested in learning about the ins and outs of the music business. From this environment, much beneficial information has come forth, enhancing the careers of the attendees. And finally, the wholesome fellowship of The American Gospel Quartet Convention has been responsible for providing an opportunity for hundreds of lifelong relationships to be formed.

Through the unselfish support of The Advisory Board, Record Labels, Promoters, Announcers, Managers and The Gospel Quarteters and their supporters, The American Gospel Quartet Convention is making a tremendous impact on the quartet field. We have come a long way, but the wonderful journey will continue until every quarteter is on board.
