Lonely Oak radio Is a Big Fat Scam!
Yes, I’m going to go straight out there and say it, Lonely Oak radio is a scam. You saw a radio station asking for music and you dropped your link! (You should stop doing that by the way). Only for a short time later hit with an alert from the poster to send your music to an email to an address. This account that has asked you to do this is most likely fake. Go ahead check it. The next step is very important. DO NOT SEND THEM AN EMAIL. The email address might be their main one or it could be of an individual but always it will be a Gmail address. What’s wrong with Gmail I hear you ask? Well, nothing, but this is supposed to be a radio station that can reach thousands of fans. It’s all, well a bit fishy. Of course, I send my music to smaller radio stations all the time, but they never charge and they never claim to get my music out there to thousands of fans. Once you have sent your email to them they will then try and get you to buy their ‘Services.’ Please don’t. Please don’t send money to get played on any radio. Not only is this considered ‘Payola’ but it’s just a terrible idea. They also try to get you to buy playlist promotional services which I have covered before. Again another scam. They don’t even include Spotify or streaming links. So what exactly does this playlist even do? I have no clue. Don’t assume because you haven’t given them money think that you are 100% safe because they are sure to bombard your inbox with tons of spam emails. Who is behind this? I have no clue for certain who is behind this. I have no idea if it is one person who has multiple fake profiles, or multiple working as a team. I do know that this scam is appearing in a lot of Facebook music groups and it seems that a lot of musicians are unaware. This little ruse has been attempted before under the name ‘College underground radio FM.’ I believe it is the same person or team behind that. My reason for believing that is because it’s the same method being used as before — fake Facebook accounts posting asking for music and giving out the same replies but also for another reason. When trawling through my inbox and the spam emails they sent me, I managed to find this interesting line from both emails. Music submissions — “Get on the playlist” For them, both to have the same tone and also include the same sentence word for word shows the proof. College underground radio FM looks like it doesn’t exist for the most part now. Not that it ever really existed. Not that it ever had 2.4 million website visitors. I do believe that it has morphed into the new scam that is Lonely Oak radio. What can we do to protect ourselves? I personally still message a lot of small radio stations with my music. I like to support them and I like what they offer. When messaging radios most of the time I use a separate email just in case they flood my inbox. I would never ever pay to get on the radio and if they were offering something too good to be true I would stay away from them. Smaller radios are going to have a tiny reach. There’s nothing wrong with that. You’ve just got to accept that and move on. If you’re on a bunch of smaller stations eventually you’re audience will increase. Things take time; nothing is easy. Stay safe out there, especially on social media.

Want To Write A Song? Here's How!
Musicians are strange creatures, cursed with melodies spinning around in their heads constantly. It's hard to recognize what words are brilliant lyrics, or just fleeting thoughts. The mind of a musician is a jumbled mess, with little bits and pieces of melodies and broken love songs constantly dragging behind them. My newest effort premieres at the end of this post! So stay tuned if you want to learn how to write music, and where these tips can get you. This card was inspired by @buddyesd and our conversations about music and songwriting over the past few days. 1. The first step is to know your music! Videos: Some of my favorites. I've been a musician my whole life. I started singing in my terrible two's and ended up getting a guitar at age 11 and starting my first rock band at 12. My life has always centered on what band I was obsessed with at the time. It all started with Green Day... Then the Ramones... Then My Chemical Romance... Thirty Seconds To Mars... The Sex Pistols... The Libertines... Neil Young, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Pete Doherty and on and on. And so on and so fourth. The point I'm trying to make here, is that you have to go through a lot of music to gain the inspiration and the fortitude to start making your own. Influences are a huge part of songwriting. They help you form what kind of identity you want as an artist. 2. Know that the perfect song won't come overnight. Your development takes time! (Video 1: One of the first songs I ever wrote (2009) "The Way You Talk" / tried and true pop-punk) (Video 2: A later rock song, 2014 "Tourist" a little more sophisticated, deeper lyrics, more passion, messy garage-rock feel) I didn't wake up and just know how to play the guitar and write songs, it took time. I sat in my room for hours on end, plucking away, humming, writing down and recording things and ultimately a lot of the stuff I wrote early on was complete shit. It just now, feels like I'm writing really meaningful stuff. So, just give yourself some time, and know that every musician goes through an evolution at every level. I started out writing simple, three chord punk songs in the vein of Green Day, my favorite band. That slowly evolved into more anthemic and stadium-like tunes when I started getting into bands like The Rolling Stones, U2 and so fourth... Now I've evolved into this heart-wrenching raw, indie influenced folk-y sound that is directly linked to my love for Pete Doherty's solo album Grace / Wastelands, a collection of melancholy tracks dedicated to love and confusion. My new song, Counselor (heard here), is a haunting acoustic ballad influenced by more singer / songwriter acts since I'm solo right now. So things have to evolve with the times. 3. Do some research. You have to know where you came from in order to know where you can go. This being said, every musician's routine is different. I just like to pick up my guitar, start strumming a few chords and a melody or lyric will come, and I'll go from there. Some people sit at a keyboard and bang out a melody, Others just jam and find a chord progression they like, to start with and build a melody on top of it. If you're not that experienced, you have to do some research. Look up the greats: Lennon and McCartney, Richards and Jagger. The classics are a great way to look at song structure. Then, look up your favorite artist's songwriting routines and experiment with them, mix and match styles until you feel like you can get somewhere. Like the lead singer of Green Day, Billie Joe Armstrong writes his melodies first, lyrics later. Both come at once for me, melody and lyric, almost always. So it just depends on how your brain works, and you won't know until you try. 4. JUST GO FOR IT!!! Music isn't perfect and most of the time it isn't beautiful or polished. So if you want to start creating your own, just start doing it. Hum melodies, listen to your favorite artists, pick up an instrument and do it! If you have the passion and you want to learn, anything is possible. I'm here to help too, if you have any questions or thoughts. Do not be afraid, because you could write the next number one single in your bedroom...you never know ;)! My newest song, written and recorded on August 12th, 2015 is up on Sound Cloud now, here's the link if you're interested. See! Songwriting isn't hard! ;) "Lying To The Wind" By: Tess Stevens

You need influencers for marketing your business and for promotion for the following reasons: Build Awareness - If people are not aware of your business, they cannot become clients.

Even complete strangers may be questioned in the feed regarding their shoe orders, shipping times, satisfaction with the shoes, and other details. Grow Affordably - Although social networking sites shouldn't be utilized as a platform for aggressive sales techniques, you shouldn't ignore the opportunity to close deals when it presents themselves since they are useful as a marketing tool.

Why Promote and Collab With Influencers It provides you with important information about the company's management style and corporate culture, and how they might benefit you as a client. More than three billion individuals use social networks each month worldwide, and since this market is expected to grow even more in the next few years, your company should start utilizing them as soon as possible. The following are some justifications for why social networks are essential for business marketing and promotion: 1. Build Awareness - People cannot become your customers if they are unaware of your company. Social networking sites increase your visibility to potential clients and enable you to reach a huge audience with little time and effort expended. Additionally, there is no risk involved in setting up a company presence on any of the major social media platforms. A fact is that people pay attention to social networking stuff. However, with all the noise from businesses attempting to promote their products on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and other social networking sites. It is quite simple for a customer to get overstimulated. In such a saturated market, how can a business provide pertinent content? 2. Communicate Authority - Customers are becoming more knowledgeable and pickier about the companies they support. They will quickly search your website and social media platforms before choosing. Will they discover a barren shop or a wealth of knowledge? Building the authority of your brand through the creation of strong profiles that you regularly update with pertinent content will ensure that you create a favorable first impression on social media, demonstrating that your company is reliable, knowledgeable, and approachable. Look for ways to establish yourself as a thought leader in your field by publishing articles that pertain to your area of expertise or developing the purpose of your organization. You may win over potential clients' trust by demonstrating the services and principles of your company. 3. Show Authenticity - Customers are not interested in companies that post on social networks in a corporate, dry manner. Instead, let the personality of your brand shine through in all of the content you post on social networking platforms. What does the voice of your company sound like? In what ways does it reflect who you are? While brands should be kind and sympathetic to their customers, it is crucial to have a voice and speak up for what you believe in. Practice finding the perfect tone, whether it's informal and humorous or formal and kind. Don't try to be someone you're not; instead, be loyal to who you are. Your social media followers want to see actual individuals behind your pages. Let them see. 4. Encourage Engagement - A social media post marketing a pair of shoes, for example, may occasionally get a lot of likes, comments, and shares. Even strangers might be questioned in the feed about whether they have received their shoes, how long it took for them to arrive, whether they liked them, and other things. Social networking platforms facilitate quick communication, the development of relationships, and client loyalty. According to Josh Krakauer, founder, and CEO of Sculpt, "it's crucial that businesses have the appropriate organizational structure to accommodate social networking sites." A product development team and a customer care team are frequently quite productive. Some business owners find this rapidly changing environment scary because social media platforms are continually offering new capabilities. You do not, however, have to accomplish everything. Try out different approaches to engaging your audience, and allow yourself the freedom to pick up new skills along the way. You may publish several Instagram Stories one day to take customers on a behind-the-scenes tour of your workplace. Next, you may use Facebook Live video streaming to organize a brief Q&A session. You'll develop a better understanding of your followers' tastes with time. 5. Grow Affordably - Yes, social networking sites shouldn't be used as a platform for excessive sales tactics, but since they serve as a marketing tool, you shouldn't pass up the chance to close deals should they arise. The mainstays of social networking platforms include sponsored content on timelines, videos with CTAs, cross-channel retargeting, and shoppable posts. Because marketing expenses can mount up, not every company can afford extensive campaigns. But with social network advertising, you can receive a lot of your money. No matter how big or how much money you have your company. Ads on social sites like Facebook and Instagram, it has the potential to expand your audience and accomplish your goals. Even while engagement is the main focus of networks like Instagram, there are proven strategies to boost sales there. Work With Influencers To Promote Your Business and Products The majority of businesses rely on statistics, but social networks aren't an exact science. For instance, you can swipe through an advertisement that features an image of a massive scoop of chocolate ice cream melting on top of a mountain of whipped cream. You might not give it a second thought, but three days later, you might decide to visit Baskin-Robbins because you were in the mood for a chocolate ice cream scoop. That kind of influence from social networks can be seen in the purchasing decision-making process. According to Steve Pearson, CEO of Friendemic, "Social networking sites, unlike traditional types of advertising, may be notoriously difficult to track." The majority of customers claim that it takes many interactions before they make a purchase. There are surely plenty of them on social networking sites and online review sites, but customers may not always mention them when they enter a store as their most recent interaction. Know your target audience and the outcome you hope to achieve when creating an advertising campaign to avoid wasting money on ineffective advertising. Choose information that educates or entertains rather than excessively sales-oriented adverts.
