Do as many as possible of the following, and in this order:

  • Create a Gmail account
  • Create a WordPress Blog
  • Create a Twitter profile
  • Create a Facebook Business / Fan Page
  • Create a Fanbridge profile
  • Create a Soundcloud profile (for musicians)
  • Create a Slide.com profile
  • Register a domain name
  • Create a YouTube profile
  • Create a website with embedded feeds
  • Blog often.
  • Blog even more often

http://mabuvinyl.co.za
http://justinbergh.com
http://blksonshine.com
http://goodlucklive.com
http://rockfest.co.za
http://dc-caterers.co.za

And remember not to agonize too much over the look and feel of your website and profiles.

It is more important to get them live and to start engaging with people.

Playlist Creator & Web Marketer. The son of a church organist father and pianist mother, South African born Brian Currin grew up surrounded by music. In his pre-teen years he realised that he had no real talent for playing music and he couldn't sing, so he immersed himself in the world of music by listening, exploring and researching. Which he still does today. He served in the military for five years, then spent many years in corporate sales and marketing until his involvement in the re-discovery of Rodriguez, opened up a whole new world for him. He was the Content Editor for Rhythm Online, South Africa's first online music store, from 2006 to 2012. He ran Mabu Vinyl, the iconic music store seen in the Oscar-winning "Searching For Sugar Man" film from 2013 to 2019. His voice could be heard on the streaming radio station All Jazz Radio where he hosted the Vagabond Show from 2012 to 2019. He is very involved in promoting South African music, and is the co-owner of a number of music-related websites including www.rock.co.za which he founded in 1999.

  1. Hi Brian:

    Caught your buzz feed just now.

    Are you aware of any widget that would allow me to stick my buzz feed and word press blog updates on my website as live feeds coming into the website?

    Thanks!
