Your potential clients need to have a place where they can check you out and find out what you’re all about. While Myspace and Facebook can be good for marketing and networking, I’d suggest still creating a dedicated website to showcase who you are and what you offer.
It will allow you to post information about the gear you own, audio clips of some of your work, rates, contact info, etc.
Perhaps you produce the album for a fee, then they can make money on the back-end by selling them.
It would be like a fundraiser for the church or school.
If they have a music/choir program, I’m sure there are times when they would like to have their concerts recorded.
In both of these scenarios, come up with ways to make it attractive for the client as well.
They can use them for podcasts and promotional material in the future.
Perhaps they can even sell them at the end of the seminar.
It’s free, and a potential client could easily turn to Craigslist to find a recording studio. One engineer I know gave it a try and booked a lot of projects from Craigslist alone. These sites can be a gold mine if you invest some time into them.
They provide an extra way to connect with area musicians and bands.
