Rock Star Rewind: Making Mojo . . . (May 2019)


Mojo Momentum

It’s not our intention to brag about ANYTHING that is happening now. We TRULY want to share that we are in awe of all that is happening for us in hopes that it will inspire those of you who may believe that it can’t happen for you.

1. Coaching 3 clients now: It’s amazing how creative folks want to know how to realize some of the gains that we’ve made. We’re excited to share specific strategies to move the needle forward. (If you need help with social media marketing or branding for your band/artistic project, call us for help. The number is 734.252.6221.)

2. Fresh off SXSW 2019: Check out our video posts and blog posts that have been created as a result.

3. Song a Week Challenge: We’re at Week 13 of the Challenge and so far, our streak has not been broken. We have posted both one seed of a song (on all of our social media accounts) and a full-fledged finalized song (to SoundCloud) each week. (If you want to know more about why we’re doing it, check this post out—"19 for 2019 Goals.")

4. Record Store Day Release: In honor of Record Store Day 2019 (April 13, 2019), we are sending our favorite record stores an exclusive CD release of an all-acoustic set. The “Honey-Dipped Acoustic Set” is a limited release and will only be available through local record stores.

5. Friends and Family Week on Facebook Groups: In an effort to welcome any and all people in who might benefit from the knowledge, resources, mindset shifts, and growth hacks that we share to move your musical/creative vision forward in our Be the Next D.I.Y. Rock Star Facebook Group and to join forces with folks who LOVE—and can’t choose between—genres of music in our Funky Happy People (Who Listen to a Variety of Music Genres), we are sponsoring a Friends and Family Week. For the member who invites the MOST members—for EACH group—there will be prizes. We LOVE prizes, don’t we? So, what are you waiting for? Let’s get to clicking!

6. Music is in the running for 3 advertising placements: One our big goals for 2019 (see “19 for 2019 Goals”) is to get more song placements in movies, tv, stores, restaurants, etc. To that end, we’ve been submitting and pitching like crazy. We’re happy to say that we’re in the running for 3 pretty notable placements now. –But, of course, we won’t stop submitting until we KNOW something has landed…. –Remember, no more putting all our eggs in any ONE basket.

Here's our assessment of the value of SXSW for newbies like us.

Having said that, we have appreciated all the support that we have gotten from you all. And if there is any way we can be of service to you, drop us an email and let us know.
