Hi everyone! I'm Jason Yarrow, the A&R and Band Submissions Director for Bandivious and Asst. Editor at Tru Rock Revival Magazine. I am also a professional musician (guitar and bass) and like most of you, I've played in several bands and have spent countless hours working on the music and trying to balance family responsibilities, working a day job and promoting my bands. It is a very difficult challenge just to make great music. But, combining work, family and promoting the music....it's unforgiving.
So, to alleviate the promotional responsibilities, my bands often hired a PR company, and, it could be expensive when you're just starting out and are struggling to make ends meet.
That is why Bandivious appealed to me; Bandivious works with your PR company (if you have one) as an affordable ($6.99 a month!) adjunct to what they do for you, or if you do your own PR, Bandivious is that extra force helping to promote your music, shows, well, basically anything band related, across a ton of social media, including our 1400 media partners, which includes PR, Management, Labels, Tour Bookings and of course, fans. Bandivious is an organization made up of musicians who are also huge music fans. With us, you're not another number, you're part of our family. So, when I was offered the opportunity to join Bandivious, I jumped at the opportunity. I saw a lot of respect, support and value they were creating for such an affordable monthly fee.
So, with all that said,
All you bands .....how many hours a day, week or month are YOU putting in to promote your band, your music, your social media? How many other hours are you working a day job? How about family responsibilities? Think about it. It's a lot to balance. And, it's valuable time lost. Time away from your music and your family. And there's a dollar value on that time lost and an emotional value. What if it was costing you $6.99 an hour to blast your music and updates across a huge section of social media. What if it took you an hour a day, 7 days a week? What about an hour a day for 30 days a month? That's easy math. $210+ a month. Bandivious streamlines it for you through some pretty cool SEO that's specific for your page and includes about 2 paragraphs of keywords and tags, for $6.99 a month, not $200.
Remember, Bandivious is not here to be your primary tool for promoting your band. We are that extra hand and extra set of eyes and ears, doing a lot of the tedious work you don't have time for. As a band, you should be devoting as much of your time as possible to write, record and perform. Think of us as your personal assistant for promoting all of your social media and band related activities. A butler of sorts.
That's why we're here with Bandivious, to help give you back a lot of that time. We'll do a lot of the grunt work for you and your band. You continue to make your music and watch your fans and followers increase every day and your social media grow.
Not sure if all of you are aware but there are tons of amazing rock bands out there who are so close to becoming household names. We are here at Bandivious and Tru Rock Revival Magazine to help these bands (you) become those household names. There's also a lot of great Cover and Tribute bands who are trying to get more gigs and gather more fans along the way. Hit us up. I'm busy searching and finding a lot of you every day as part of my responsibilities with Bandivious and Tru Rock, but help me too. Show us your magic! Show me your magic!
Let's get a lot of you on Bandivious. It's really a no brainier. No contracts, month to month, stay on as long as you like or cancel whenever you like, very affordable. Bandivious is also charity driven, as we automatically give 10% each month to different charities. We promote the hell out of all of you and we love doing it.
If you're an original band, you'll be featured in Tru Rock Revival Magazine as a full interview. And, this interview goes out to our over 1400 global media partners, including PR, labels, management and tour organizers. You'll have your own SEO driven page, listed by State - City - Genre. You'll also be listed alphabetically in THE BANDS section too. Your page will include one of your videos, band photo, bio, links to all of your social media, your contact information and what service you are seeking, whether it be PR, Management, Label or Bookings. This way, when industry people go to your page, they will know what you need!
In Tru Rock Revival Magazine, our "New Rock Video" page gets over 250,000 visitors a month, by itself. You will have an original band video on a similar but separate Bandivious Video Page in Tru Rock. You'll also be a featured interview in Tru Rock Revival Magazine. Seriously, all this, plus promo to our global audience at Tru Rock Revival Magazine. Again, you are not signing a contract with Bandivious. Your contract will be with your PR, Mngmt and Labels, not us. Our commitment is to help get your band noticed.
If you're a Cover or Tribute band, don't worry. We strive to promote you just as hard as the Original's bands. You will also have your own SEO driven page in Bandivious, with a video, links, bio and contact information. How many of you work with a booking agency who does all this for you on their site? I'm going to go out on a limb and say zero. I've been there. I know how they work. They put you on a page that lists all the bands they represent, showing the band's names, no active link to your website or social media. In Bandivious, you'll be listed the same way as the original's bands are, so you'll be easy to find.
Bandivious is here to help bring that balance to your life, save you time and money and let you focus on your music!
