A release strategy, or at least a good release strategy, has to be more than checking off boxes. It takes developing relationships and providing value to fans, long before the announce ever hits their ears. Partnerships are a key part of success in today’s music industry, and continuously create new channels for artists to make an impact. But how do you make it happen without breaking the bank? Julie Sturdivant, SVP of Marbaloo Marketing, sits with fellow panel guests to talk about how to think outside the box and give the fans what they really want.
