A great online promotion tool is the new website http://www.frestyl.com. It allows artists, venue owners and the general public to create a profile and list events they will be performing/hosting/attending.
All the events are then viewable from a map of the area you’re in, making the info rather easy to get to.
Frestyl is an AWESOME tool for artists to promote their live events. The only problem right now seems to be adoption. It looks like they need more artists to advertise their events so the software will be more effective. Ha..their problem is they need artists to advertise their own events for free..why is that hard? If you’re an artist, try it out, this software has a lot of potential to take off.
