DIGITAL COACHING CAMPAIGNS

We have coached artists and bands in the most cutting edge online promotion techniques for the last 18 months and now we have established a dynamic new system giving you complete access to our database of information and techniques as well as a selection of dedicated staff specialists!

THIS IS WHAT WE DO:

Automation: We are experienced using a wide variety of exclusive software, services and techniques so we can maximise your exposure through many common internet channels, Myspace, Youtube, Google Searches and much more. Our focus is on targeted, useful, fan friendly interaction and functional, efficient content distribution, not thoughtless spam.

Implementation and Support: Often artists have specialised needs, that’s what unique about Kurb. Our experience using all the latest digital and online trends means we work with you to establish all the elements of your online platforms for distribution and sale of mp3’s and other digital products, your website, blogging, advertising platforms, p2p – everything you need to develop online as a serious artist now and in the future. There are also practical areas of photoshop, web coding, copywriting, profile design and other areas of consulting which we can support you with depending on the specific needs of the artists.

Coaching Strategy: Building a strategy starts to happen at least a month or two into promotions. Initially I answer artists questions and offer tips specific to the artist in developing habits that will produce a momentum – for example blogging advice is a biggie.

But once platforms are established and automated promotion tools are ticking over its time to really focus and examine the use of these platforms and tools into strategies based around certain goals, where we want fans to go, what we want them to do, and building hooks and propositions around those outcomes.

Research: Being ahead of the pack isn’t enough for us – our unique and forward looking service is continually developing. New promotion tools, strategies, techniques and offers are becoming available as the digital revolution rolls on and I truly believe one of the best reasons clients should get involved with kurb is not just what we’re doing now, but because we are the promotions company preparing artists for the future.

Also I’d like to add cross promotion to that. Because as we become a fixture in the music industry it’s giving us the opportunity to access and create projects that increase exposure for my whole stable of artists.

People who are passionate about music are coming to me offering help and opportunities. While I’m pursuing opportunities to innovate and create platforms more suited to the modern music industry.

We can provide all your fundamental online promotion needs, homepages, maintenance, mailing lists and dozens of tips and tricks to make your music marketing more modern and INTERACTIVE!

No one in New Zealand knows social networking like us - how it works, how to get results, where its going. Right noew, it's myspace, we've been there since '04, but tomorrow, who knows? We do. If you don't know what the fuss is all about let us show you why social networking sites are creating such a buzz in music.

Kurb's got your back. That means free stickers and other promo material, discounts on all our services, access tp opportunites and contacts. People to talk to, contacts to know, websites to join.

Those waiting for a recording contract these days maybe waiting a very long time. Already most labels are unlikely to take a risk on something that hasn't been seen to perform in its own right. This being the contradiction of the recording industry as it stands: The labels only want you when you don't need them. And what are they generally offering? "If we make money on your record, we'll take at least half of it. If not, don't worry, you can pay us back."

Selling your music online is becoming cheaper and easier and most importantly more profitable all the time. How we establish and provide distribution of your recordings online is not exclusive or costly, but it is time consuming in detail, and most effectively managed and maintained by someone who is aware of what is required - that's us.

Recouping the initial expense is unlikely to happen straight away - it can take up to 3 months before your music becomes available throughout the world on over 40 of the worlds biggest online music retailers including itunes, napster, cdbaby, amazon, and even trademe. We build a broad repertoire of points where your music is available giving you the freedom to release what you want, when you want, however it sounds, and charge what you like for it. true story.

We are currently establishing a comprehensive independent distribution for physical CD's within New Zealand and Australia in 2008.
