The Virtual Publicist

Hey everyone,

I have teamed up with Rhonda Kelley of Rainmaker PR and Ben Schulkin of 3000K to bring you The Virtual Publicist.

It's a great contact list filled with music press contact information for over 400 music magazines, zines, blogs and freelance writers; and ready-to-use labels for mailing your press kits. It's ideal for musicians, labels, bands, etc who are looking to do their own publicity quickly and effectively. It's only $39.95 which makes it an affordable investment towards your music career. I recommend adding this to your arsenal!

And so you know, I have personally used The Virtual Publicist and can say I absolutely love it! While busy promoting our "Invasion of the GoGirls" during SXSW weekend I wanted to get our press release out to as many places as possible. I was able to quickly send out the release (in less than 5 minutes!) to relevant music magazines, blogs, writers, etc. I'm all about working smarter not harder and The Virtual Publicist allows me to do this!

Rock on,

No matter what the level your ability is, you have more potential than you can ever develop in a lifetime.

Don't think about the things you can't do.
Think about the things you can do.
There is no such thing as no chance.

You have powers you never dreamed of.
You can do things you never thought you could do.
There are no limitations to what you can do except the limitations of your own mind.

Your range of available choices right now is limitless.
Look at things as they can be.
Never say never.

[Madalyn’s Note: this is so absolutely true! Focus on what you CAN do not what you can’t. Can’t is a bad, bad word. Get out there and do something that you thought you couldn’t do before but now have the will to say “I Can”. Rock on!]

Rock on,
