At SoundOps, we are always looking for stuff that will help our clients make the most of their music. If you’re serious about your career as an artist, you’ve probably noticed, you actually spend more time marketing your band than you do writing, recording, and playing…
For us, running a mastering studio is very similar. We spend a ton of time marketing our services, because if we didn’t, our engineers would all be twiddling their thumbs.
We recently discovered MailChimp, a great company based here in Atlanta. They offer the email services we all need for less than the other guys. In fact, for most artists starting out, it’s FREE! You don’t pay unless your email list is pretty big. And on top of that, their website is so smart, you don’t even need to know what the heck you’re doing
If you are having a hard time keeping up with your mailing list, and maintaining a regular newsletter, MailChimp is the ticket. It won’t just make your life easier, it will actually add hours to your day. Which means you can chase your dream as an indie musician and still sleep in!
The best kind of laziness is the kind that makes you more successful – I think that’s a quote…
If your band has tried services like aweber, this will be a breath of fresh air, and not just because it’s cheaper. Trust me – check it out, and sign up for free! That’s a special link, so you’ll also get 30 bucks and a cool bonus too if you ever upgrade your account
Good luck, and happy emailing!
PS: One more thing – while we’re on the topic of being lazy… MailChimp.com is full of tutorial videos, so you don’t even need to read the instructions. That’s been my favorite part so far.
