Welcome

- [Voiceover] Hi, I'm Bobby Owsinski. Author of Social Media Promotion for Musicians, Music 3.0, and 16 other books on mixing, recording, and the music business as well as a number of other Lynda.com courses. Perhaps the second most powerful marketing tool for yourself and your music after your website is your mailing list. Because of this conscious opt in, the e-mail newsletter is the most direct link to your fans and clients. Recent studies have also found that e-mail is 23% more effective than social media when it comes to selling goods online.

In this course I'll show you why using a mailing list service is so important, how to select a mailing list service, how to craft a successful newsletter, the best times to send your newsletter to get the most opens, How to get subscribers to your mailing list, and much more. There's a lot of great info in this course that I don't think you'll find anywhere else and it's all there for one purpose, help you get better gigs and make more money.

So sit back and watch as we talk about creating and maintaining a successful mailing list.
