I've been thinking about this a lot lately and a buddy of mine mentioned he'd just been picked up by a company...got me even more interested. I'm wondering if fellow TBers could give me a little advice on this, in other words, should I go after endorsements (bass, strings, etc.)? I'm not looking for FREE, I'd love to be able to say I'm involved with a company(s) and be able to give back in that way as well... Here goes: -My band was just named Best Band in a state-wide awards show. -Our debut cd has been named #1 album by one prominent writer for local news and Rolling Stone. -Worldwide radio airplay (All over europe, Japan, We're being interviewed by a rock station out of South Africa soon, very cool!) A huge presence of internet stations play our stuff... -Between my personal youtube and the bands we're at around 2 million views and counting -Facebook/Twitter/Website traffic is absolutely fantastic. -Exceptional press both over the internet and in local/regional news. -Just slews of interviews both over Radio and online blogs The downfall is its hard to really quantify some of these things. Most of them I can definitely give figures in terms of a number, but some not... Thoughts? Should I go out for a deal?
