33 musicians participated in the first blogging challenge, 18 completed it, and I was so inspired and moved I could not choose so 10 contestants won a campaign!
A complimentary campaign isn't the real reason why you should take the challenge. The real reason why you should participate in the blogging challenge is we will work with you as you spend 9 weeks taking yourself out of your “musician” head and spend 9 weeks focusing on your “business” head and see how attention to your marketing and promotion and social media will transform your relationships with your fans forever.
The rules are easy...
