    It’s no secret that money can be pretty tight for indie artists. I’ve spent the majority of my 25 years plus years in the industry as an indie artist, so I get it. At times I’ve had the money for a publicist, but most of the time, I couldn’t afford one.

    So what happens when you can’t afford one? Or you forgot to budget for one, and you are releasing your music as an indie artist? The job falls in your lap, and if you have no contacts and no prior history or relationships, then you will struggle to get any kind of media attention at all.

    In this episode, I give you my secret weapon that will totally change the trajectory of your career! You will never be worried about doing your own publicity again! I use this little secret weapon for every business I have ever owned and will use it for any business I own in the future. P.S.
