Download cards are a great way to get a fan or music industry professional to listen to your music. They contain a link to an MP3 music download of one of your songs or albums. In an age where everyone relies heavily on technology, download cards are a powerful new music industry marketing medium.
Promoting your band with the use of download cards can be done in many different ways. You may want to use them as business cards to hand out to music industry professionals, so after the conversation has ended they have a physical, visual and musical representation of what your band is about. Give them away for free to fans and music festival attendees. This is a great way to entice and grow a new fan base. When fans buy merchandise at your shows include a download card so they feel appreciated and like they are getting even more value for their money.
Included on your download card should be the music, website and any other promotional information you want your fans to access. QR codes can be used on download cards too if you have a lot of information you want to share.
The design and graphics of the download card are important as well. Like any print advertising medium you want to use something that is eye-catching and edgy. Your bands logo or a photo of the band are great designs ideas to incorporate. Create your own design or use our free easy to use templates.
