Holiday Cheer

It's that time of year again.  Let me guess, you have an Holiday CD and you're wondering what to do with it?  You've gone to a lot of work and don't want to just put the CD out for people to use in their shops and parties.  A few dollars for one CD is crazy for all that effort you've put into it.  You've worked for months to write the songs and produce them, so why just hand it away for all to listen to....

It's a hard time of year to actually sell that CD, especially in December when you have finally put it together, right?  But, think again, there are plenty of locations looking for original music rather than the standards. Shops need to bring people in...ask them if you can perform and sell CD's in their business.  This way you are performing, offering support to a local business and getting your work out to the public.  There are customers looking for something different to give during the holidays and what a perfect gift is an original, wonderful CD that can be shared on that special holiday when gifts are opened and shared.

Get your CD's, go to the local shops or public spots and perform!  Bring your CD's and sell them.  Everyone will enjoy your wonderful music and will happily buy your CD as a gift and for their holiday events.  And, of course, don't forget that as the months progress through the year, your name and music will remain in their hearts.  You will have a new following and house concerts will be organized for the months ahead.

So don't be shy, get out there and offer your performance time as long as you are able to sell those CD's...You only have a short time to sell those songs, so join the "shop local" movement and support those small, independent locations and get your work out there for the public to enjoy!
