: Anyone got an idea of what a promo pack should contain? I know that it needs a picture, resume, and a recording. I am just wondering what to put on the tape, how long the resume should be, and how many pictures I need.
I worked with a group of people assembling a compilation album of local music before, and the one thing that a lot of folks forget is that the people who receive the promo pack do not live the same life the sender does. They do not always know the same people, speak with the same expressions, have the same beliefs, etc. In other words, be careful that what you include is sort of context neutral. If the people you send the kit to have no idea what you are talking about, something that may be funny, clever whatever in your area or in your group of friends, may fall totally flat with them. That said never be afraid to take risks.
