What a Publicist Can Do for Your Band
The main job of a publicist is to spread information among the public through unpaid or unearned channels. This may happen by writing press releases, speeches, blog posts, or social media posts. It could also happen by holding special events or launches. Most of the job of a publicist, however, entails cultivating close and intimate relationships with members of the media, which may be editors, writers, bloggers, designers, producers, radio DJs, TV hosts, podcasters, and other gatekeepers.
These relationships are leveraged to make sure that clients’ stories get told in the appropriate places so that the intended audiences can be reached. A publicist can also help you create a press kit—photos, a short bio, social media channels, and press clips—that can be distributed to media representatives that they would like to work with.
Publicists specialize in tailoring their public relations methods to the products and endeavors of their clients, which may be a tour or event, a new release, merchandise, or other products. Much of the work of a publicist is centered around campaigns, which will precede a certain aspect of a band’s work and will last for a pre-determined amount of time.
Bands can benefit from the use of a publicist by saving time that they can use to focus on creating their music. A publicist can help a band identify which audiences to reach, make a plan to get your music to them, and then implement and execute that plan. They can use their knowledge of timelines and content production cycles to make sure that their clients’ music is heard by the audiences that will most appreciate it.
