7. Timeline example of December 8th CD release and event:
October 20: a press release (about CD and performance) should be constructed with solid information about the CD, composer, performers and works. All members of the band should submit a list of all of their “special” press names – those already sympathetic to their work, friends, good matches, etc.
October 27: media list is finalized
November 1-5: One-sheet, press release and CD are mailed to media
November 15-30: Follow up with media who received CD.
November 24: Secondary press release and/or reminder email is sent with any new/developing artistic information about Dec 8 concert. Ask media if they would like free tickets to the show.
December 7: Prepare packets to give to press should they come to the show. Packet should include cd, release, postcards, etc, in a simple folder.
December 20: Final follow up is completed
