    The Rock Star Branding Podcast Ep. #38

    When Does A New Band Need To Start Thinking About Branding?


    When do you start piecing together your brand identity? When do you build your online presence?

    Photos, logos, websites, videos, blogs, social media, song samples, videos, merch, rehearsals, live performances, showmanship, stage presence... there's so much to think about.

    What's the process? Is there a strategy to follow?

    How you create and define your brand will determine on whether people will take you as a serious professional band… or just another local, weekend-warrior, party band.

    Get people involved right from the beginning.
    Start creating an audience now, months prior to the release of your music.

    Press play or download this 15 minute podcast below to hear the advice that me (Brian Thompson), Michael Brandvold and Steve Jones have for new bands or projects just starting out...
