If you are working to build your fanbase using every tool at your disposal then these tips from the panellists at last week’s CMJ conference are going to give you an edge.

Collated by the folks at Digital Music News, it’s full of great ideas – some you’ll know and some will be new.

After a long week in New York, we strongly questioned whether CMJ was actually helping artists by simply doling out endless DIY marketing tips. But the tips themselves were often quite good, though the real question is whether it makes any sense to be a full-time marketing specialist and musician at the same time.       

Anyway, alongside that debate many just wanted to review the tips and judge for themselves. And, not just artists, but also managers, indie labels, consultants, and lawyers. So, here are 40 that we wrote down – which really is just a fraction of the overall stream of information from last week. And, this goes beyond DIY and into highly-related areas like publishing and music supervision. Enjoy.
