This is part two of my Facebook live with Curtis Dewar of Dewar PR. We talk about why your visuals matter and the reason bands don't spend money on their branding.

Australians woke up yesterday to find they are being blocked from accessing news in their Facebook feeds. The problem is, this hasn’t just affected big media outlets like the ABC, SBS or Channel 9 like news outlets are reporting, this has affected small news websites like music media, independent blogs and podcasts as well as some bands. In this episode I’m going to be giving you the low-down on what’s been affected, the impact for you whether you’re in Australia or not and workarounds myself and others have been using.

Danny Bazzi is the owner of Touring company Silverback Touring and has recently opened a bookings arm called Silverback Agency.   Silverback Touring have brought bands to Australia such as Atreyu, Skid Row, Bruce Dickenson, Corrosion of Conformity Hardcore Superstar, Buckcherry and Crashdiet just to name a few.   In this interview, Danny runs us through how the touring industry works, how it's adapted through COVID, the different steps and components to organising and marketing tours and how to pitch your band to be a support on a bigger tour or show.   Between the lines, a lot of what Danny speaks about is also about the importance of relationships within the music industry and best practices to conduct yourself professionally.

We've all been told that saying 'yes' to as many opportunities as possible is key to succeeding in the music industry.  But as tempting as it can be to agree to every gig offer or even a label offer, sometimes doing so can do more harm than good. In this episode, I explain why saying 'no,' can actually help position your band in the market in such a way that makes you more in demand and also leaves room for you to say yes to the opportunities and relationships that are truly aligned.

Hey, your article is a good one. I must say not everybody knows how to write blogs and make them look professional. Being a law student I always look for data points like charts, analysis in articles. Yours seems to give justice to the topic. My personal style includes a lot of graphs, numbers and informative videos. I write on https://www.successmantra.com
