Music and Self-Promotion - Music artists views
Answers marked with a * are required.

I am a French student doing a Bachelor in the UK, I am conducting this survey for my final year dissertation which question is "Self-Promotion in the Music Industry : a PR tactic ?".

This survey aims  to get the music artists and/or their representative perspective of self-promotion, how they perceive it and what it is for them.

Thank you very much for taking the time to answer these few questions, I know it looks like a lot but it actually shouldn't take more than 3-4 minutes. I really really appreciate it !


What is your stage name or band name ? (This question is optional but I would be happy to listen to what you do on mySpace or if not already done ! )


When have you started to promote yourself or your band ? 


What tools have you been using to do so ?


Which ones have shown the more results ? After how long using them ?

5. Since you have started to promote yourself (yourselves), do these self-promotion tools have changed or evolved ?

9. Would you say that self-promotion requires a lot of personal time and work ? How so ? *
10. What do you think self-promotion can give you that record labels can't ?  *

What do you think record labels can give you than self-promotion can't ?


Do you think it is necessary / important for musicians to keep a part of self-promotion even after they are signed by a record label ? Why ?
