Book Your Band-Tricks to stay on top of the booking game
Here are a few tricks for staying on top of contacts and chaperoning your assignment sheets into shows!
Follow up your initial contact. This can be done with an email or a post card. I really like postcards. I have a Moonstruck postcard that I send after making contact with a new person. A post card in this world of electronic mail and text messaging makes an impact. It is also a VISUAL reminder of you, your band and your music. Be sure all information is on your postcard. Keep your message simple.
Hi Jason- enjoyed talking to you on the phone. Your Loving Wife is excited about the possiblity of playing in Charleston. Thanks for your time!
Be sure you are logging date and time for each communication with the talent buyer or venue.

Be disciplined about your tracking.
