Campaigns
Campaigns are not just for politicians, they're for anyone with a campaign and an agenda. Unless we make our own campaigns, we are destined to be the poor souls being pulled this way and that by soap commercials.

Therefore, organize! Answer the following with a ball point pen:
1. What is your objective? Be specific
2. What is the road to get there really going to look like? Be brutal.

With this information, OnAxis Music assists with Marketing Campaigns such as:

General
- increasing mailing list subscribers
- increasing event listings in local press
- increasing hits to website
- increasing # hits/followers on YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, etc. (though note the numbers in themselves don't directly translate to fans or sales, but in the right context this is useful)

Albums 
- creating/designing one sheets
- sending album information to local press, radio, etc.
- developing album marketing campaign
- soliciting album reviews

Singles
- developing marketing campaign specific to singles

Booking
- plans of attack for booking strategies

and so much more. We can lobby for you.

This all sounds great. Is it affordable?

Promotion seems overwhelming, but in the right hands it is manageable. Trust us, as independent freelancers in the current economy, affordable to you means the same thing it does for us. We understand that some musicians are eating sandwiches out of garbage cans, so we definitely allow you to keep your well-earned sandwich cash. We actually, in turn, sometimes accept payment by sandwiches.

What About Graphic Design?
We provide graphic design for poster, fliers and layout of EPK and other materials. We provide custom artwork as well.

Our Shared Goal:
To bring your music and/or company to a wider audience.

Why it's easier than doing it yourself:
We offer an objective ear and create something that sets you in the right direction. We are easy to work with, flexible and do promotion to let you focus on your music- which is after all, the point!
