He’s one of the World’s Greatest Living Guitarists.

Facebook Fans

Strategies Used

This required a lot of heavy Facebook marketing & Advertising. We’ve used almost every ad product that Facebook offers, but it all starts with awareness. I ripped all of Joe’s DVD’s and started with video view objective ads and targeted them to fans of similar artists like Eric Clapton.

Joe originally had 100k newsletter subscribers. With my help, he's now up to...

Newsletter Subscribers

Strategies Used

The best way to get people to sign up for a newsletter is to show them there is value in the service. It was a normal practice to give out a free song to the public every time Joe released a new album. I simply packaged all the previous singles into one free ‘sampler album’ and gave that to anyone who signed up for the newsletter. To ensure proper open rates, the album was sent to the email they provided as a link. This not only gained signups fast, but ensured they took the ultra-critical step of finding and opening our email to ensure we didn’t go to spam in future mailings.
