2. Introduction

Welcome to the April Indie Contact Newsletter.

This month Publicist Ariel Hyatt presents a very insightful
article that will help you to understand that in order to be
successful, you need to think more like an "Internet" Marketer
and less like a "Music" Marketer. You can also watch a video
Marketing series put on by Ariel. The link can be found in
the General Resources: Education section in the online
section of this newsletter.

CD and T-shirt sales are great for selling at your gigs, but how
do you use the power of the internet to maximize artist-to-fan
sales? theBizmo is new digital tool that can help. It is the first
360 degree “microstore widget that enables you to sell all your
digital content and products, right from your social network pages
and websites. Right now, subscribers of this newsletter can get a
free bizmoPro ($49.95 value) with custom-designed skin until
June 30th.

Also, please take a moment to check out our updated affiliate
program
for the Indie Bible and Indie Venue Bible. It's an easy
way to generate a few extra dollars each month. We'd love to
have you as a partner.

Remember, If you have a service that can help out artists
or songwriters and would like to be listed in this newsletter,
please don't hesitate to get in touch. Just e-mail your details
to indiecontactnewsletter_at_rogers_dot_com
