Utilising experience in business, marketing, promotion,

publishing and presentation…..


  • Working your music, interest, business in the new marketing paradigm - its different, but fun if get your head around it
  • Using the great, ever changing technology options to be different and attract attention

  • Exposure if not good....... is bad!
  • Dont be fooled - most people dont have imagination - if your image amd message dont fly, your business will die ......... and
    a specific example ..........Is the "demo" a thing of the past? It depends but mostly, yes
