Creating your brand
Well that’s what the essence of branding is! The idea is to be so consistent with the quality and presentation of your performance that it will cause fans and consumers to trust that your project is well worth the purchase! Promoting your online content to fans should produce the same quality affect as your offline event.

So lets discuss some of the key areas where you need to get started building your brand online. If you are like us at Devine Jamz Gospel Network, it will be a continuous endeavor that you will want to work on till the end of time! We should all be willing to learn new ideas and ways to perfect our calling!



Brand Logo

1. Creating a logo that corresponds to your service, product, or story behind the brand:

A. Make a list of metaphors visually and in text!

B. Go through magazines and cut out images that you think are similar of what you are thinking of.

C. Start sketching and see what symbols that you come up with over and over again.

D. You can give what you come up with to a designer to use as the root for your logo image.

2. Important tactics:

A. Test your service or product

At Devine Jamz Gospel Network we use an Internet Sales tactic, which is incorporated with one of our paid promotions that many marketers has been successful with for decades.

B. Make sure your product looks good

If you’re an artist, then you are the product and service that needs to be marketed. That means you should not be using substandard images of your self for a press release or publicity platform. Invest in professional photos of your self because your image can determine if you will be taken seriously.

C. Target your niche

This might require that you receive professional help if you are not familiar with using paid marketing tools by Facebook Ad Campaign, Google Adwords, Twitter Ad Service, YouTube Video Marketing, or Bing. You need to know how to find the people in your audience that likes your style of music and purchase music online. These are the individuals that you should be spending the most time with online. Having a contact list with 5,000 friends and none of them or very few of them purchased your songs means something is wrong with the way you obtained the people on your list.

D. Online videos – A leading tool used to affect your pitch! When used the correct way, we have found it to be very successful speaking to your fans. It will help you get closer to your audience and build a rapport.

E. Responding to social networks – You must find a way to communicate to your audience. Your fans want to build a relationship with you. They require a deeper purpose for buying your music. At Devine Jamz Gospel Network we have a way that artists can communicate with fans individually and personally in an automated and systematic way. We help free up your time so that you can focus on other areas where your attention is demanded.


F. Determine which social media to use for a specific demographic

These are some key principles that will help your brand and eventually build your fan base. Through diligence and patience you will see the rewards for being consistent and providing quality service and/or products!

For more training on this subject a great online course can be seen on the video in this blog post.

Gospel Singer Christopher Gray
[Free Publicity Blog Post] Christopher Gray is a multi - cultural instrumentalist, composer, producer, and recording artist. Being the sixth of seven siblings, he originates from an extremely skilled group of vocalists and artists. Christopher was brought up in the inward city of Jackson, MS USA. Through the difficult times and battles with destitution, Christopher frequently recollects one of the most important moments of his life! It was what he believes a calculated and on time decision that his mother invested in him and his siblings. She obtained a portable keyboard with a wide range of tunes in it that was culturally diverse. This was the beginning of his destiny. 

Amid his initial years, he started to compose and form different works. He received a vast amount of recognition from music programs at the schools he went to from elementary school to the university level. Not realizing that he would one day be an artist, he generally considered himself as "only a pianist". He was really great at it to! But the Lord led him even further. He also took voice lessons not knowing precisely why he was doing so. And then trials begin to test him! While in his early adult years, Christopher was in a battle with himself. He was unable to keep a job and it left him feeling lost in the world.





So Christopher established a relationship with the Lord and it opened his eyes! He received the vision to pursue his purpose. Christopher began to lead the praise and worship services at his church, which he played the piano and sang. It explained the reason why God had him take vocal lessons that he once couldn’t explain why he was doing so. With the added learned skill he rapidly began to grow! He created his first solo collection “So You Can Receive”, which is in stores now. From that point forward Christopher has released 1 single “I Need You”, which also is accessible on iTunes. You can believe that God has more in store for this blessed musical performer! Get connected today!

One of the most difficult parts of the Christian life is the fact that becoming a disciple of Christ does not make us immune to life’s trials and tribulations. Why would a good and loving God allow us to go through such things as the death of a child, disease and injury to ourselves and our loved ones, financial hardships, worry and fear?





So I have asked many, what would you say is wrong with culture, people, the church?
And most everyone agrees. They ask where the healing?

2 Chronicles 7:14

14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

Giving away your music sounds counter intuitive dosen't it?

Recording Studio
I completely comprehend why numerous musicians would believe so! Truth be told, many artists we provided services for did not like giving away their music initially. After all, who wants to give away something that they worked hard at creating and investing money in. I can say the same for marketers who rather get paid for the diligent work they provide for clients as oppose to receiving discount rates or offering free publicity services as we do at Devine Jamz Gospel Network! However there are some advantages to giving out free tracks or offering free publicity services. Let me briefly explain why!




Building A Fan Base On a Tight Budget

Marketing Budget
Although major record labels are not impressed by indie artists giving away free tracks. They don't have to market music as non-mainstream artists do on a smaller budget. In the online course provided by Music Marketing Manifesto 3.0, artists learn Internet sales strategies that suggest free tracks has its purpose. First, it’s great for establishing a rapport with potential fans. Secondly, this methodology increase the likelyhood of fans sharing your music through word of mouth. You receive free advertising that helps push your music. Word of mouth advertising is similar to street teams, which is more reliable when the advertisement comes from a friend. After building a rapport, eventually a purchase is requested.

Now, the procedure is not as basic as I just explained it. In fact, there is an exchange process where the artist receives valuable information first! Likewise, it would be exceptionally hard to truly correspond with huge amounts of fans as the request for free music increase. Therefore, the system includes an automated software tool and specially designed web pages that does the work for you! The process is explained in details in the Music Marketing Manifesto course. So, it’s recommended to go through the course your self.

Other Music Businesses That Teach The Same Strategy

In addition to Music Marketing Manifesto 3.0, we also researched a ranking music business listed at the top of Google's search engines (the video above). And guess what, it includes Internet marketing with the same strategy as detailed in the Music Marketing Manifesto course! Not only that, you will find that Lynda(dot)com offer many other online video tutorials that Music Marketing Manifesto does not offer.

Keep us posted and let us know what you decide! Many blessings and we pray you receive divine favor what ever you decide!

Sales And Marketing in The Music Industry
Lets face it, many of us did not ask to get in the sales and marketing business. 

But it's something we will have to learn if we are trying to market and sell a service or product! Of course, we can always hire a creative marketing team. Still, you should learn some basics to assure you're not being taken advantage of.

Sales And Marketing in The Music Industry
Learning About Cars Saved My Mom Thousands

I learned from my mother that unless I have enough money where that I need not balance my checkbook. I better learn some essential information about what ever I need to purchase and how to reduce the cost. Otherwise I'm going to watch life pass me by waiting on a deal or a freebie! When I was a child, my mother had no intentions of being an auto mechanic. Yet believe me when I tell you she learned early how to service the fundamental upkeep to her vehicle and saved 30 to 60 dollars when her car needed a tune-up. Mom had no problems taking out a spark plug and getting a little dirt on her hands. Why? She despised surrendering cash for basic things that auto mechanics could have effortlessly advised her the manner by which to do-it-herself. I can only imagine how much money mom would have saved if the Internet were around back in the day. She would be a walking encyclopedia. The Internet can give you so much information and access to credible databases where you can teach yourself about the sales and marketing business.

Sales And Marketing in The Music Industry
Don't Be Intimidated By Marketing Terms

Now if you've done a little homework on the Sales and Marketing business, you ought to have some essential thought where to begin with your project. On the other hand, you might be like some who fear the fancy words and info graphs that is used in marketing and haven’t gone near the text. Don’t believe the hype saints! That is, I have discovered that the words utilized are only a trade for normal words we use in our ordinary walk in life.

For example, "Conversion = A sell or some type of result"; "Leads = A contact name and email"; "Direct Marketing = Communicating directly to the consumer"; "ROI = Return On Marketing Investment" etc. Heck, the average marketer has no clue of the basic music terms! Unless music marketing is their niche, they are probably just afraid to go near the subject in fear of looking unintelligent. On the other hand, if they want to make money marketing music they will research and learn the meaning of the terms and purpose used in the music industry. Such as "Indie = Independent"; "Lead Sheet = A form of musical notation"; "16 Bars = 16 measures of the music"; "Beats = Regular rhythmic pattern" etc.

It Helps To Utilize Resources That Broaden Your Thinking


So fear not the sales and marketing business child of God! Simply make the plunge where you require service and start researching using sites like wikipedia for definitions. You can also go to our digital marketing magazine where we maintain updated marketing articles to help broaden your thinking. You will feel confident as you start believing more in your self. Not to mention you’ll save hundreds of dollars on the grounds that marketing can be exceptionally expensive! Let me know how things turn out for you. I'm eager to read what you received from doing a little research. God bless and I hope this blog has been of some encouragement and inspiration!
