Hello I am a (Ba) Music Production university student who is currently doing a research module on self promotion and marketing strategies for the freelance composer and i would really appreciate your time to answer some questions.
'When starting your career in music, was it the use of the internet or making contacts through face to face networking that gained you work?'
'What do you believe to be the most important features when developing a website, e.g a good photo, or good presentation?'
'Do you feel that it is important to have professional representation such as a manager or agent?'
'If so, when presenting yourself to potential agents or managers what do you believe is the best form of promotion e.g a demo disk?'
'Do you advertise yourself using social networking sites and forums, if so how effective do you find them to be?'
'Thank you for your time, it is very much appreciated. Can you offer any advice to people who want to start a career within the industry?'
