I need you to help make my "Impossible Tour" happen. We have 10 days left to make sure all 10 shows sell 100% and I really want these shows to happen! They only happen if we reach 100%. This touring model has HUGE implications for musicians everywhere. I really do believe that this could work for many bands.
So here's my exclusive blogger deal (valid through Tuesday August 30th):
Write a blog about me, my music, and my pre-sold tour. You can come at it from any angle you like: the music, the innovation of the pre-sold tour idea, how pink my hair is, how sparkly my shoes are, whatever it is that you connect to.
For your blog I will answer three questions via email: kim (at) kimboekbinder.com
I will also take an exclusive photo JUST FOR YOUR BLOG.
Once the blog is posted I will post a link on my sites to your blog.
AND I will mail you a thank you package. In the real world mail. For real.
It doesn't matter if your blog has 2 readers or 20,000 for this. And you can cut and paste the text below, or write your own post. The post can be any length (as long as it talks about the tour.) Anywhere between 100-1000 words is great! I just want to get the word out as much as possible.
1) Email three questions to: kim (at) kimboekbinder.com
2) I'll send you an exclusive photo along with the answers to your questions.
3.) Post your blog with an embedded Kickstarter video from one of my shows and links to all ten shows.
4.) Send me the link to your blog so I can post it. Send me your postal address so I can send your thank you package.
You can post the blog anytime this week but I have to have your postal address by midnight on Tuesday if you want me to send you a thank you package.
Here is an example blog by Eric Parfait: http://www.theparfaitreport.com/2011/08/sharing-music-kim-boekbinder-is.html
Here is my press release text you can cut and paste into your blog if you want:
Kim Boekbinder Redefines The Rock Tour
Iconoclastic New York musician, Kim Boekbinder, has set the internet abuzz with her passionate rant about the state of the music industry and how she's decided to circumvent the broken system by using her vibrant social media presence to pre-sell her shows BEFORE they are even booked. Kim's first test run of the idea was launched on Kickstarter and she got her funding for a show in New York City in under 24 hours. Now she's doing a 10 date US tour: http://kck.st/pIcXeH
Ms. Boekbinder's "Impossible Tour" idea has been featured on CCN Money, BBC Radio's World Service, and BoingBoing. http://www.boingboing.net/2011/06/14/crowdfunding-the-tou.html#comments. The attention generated from the story has her email inbox flooded with thank you messages from fans, musicians, and venues; as well as offers from internet startups trying to address the very issues that she is dealing with.
Kim Boekbinder is The Impossible Girl; a performer, composer, musician, and visual artist who defies genre. She has travelled the world, stealing hearts and changing paradigms with her indelible live performance and her excitingly original and unforgettable music. http://www.kimboekbinder.com/about/
For those of you who are not inclined to blogging, posting helps! Put a link on Facebook, Twitter, Myspace, Tumblr, whatever your preferred form of internet communication is. And appeal to your friends directly with personal emails inviting them to be part of making the show happen.
Let's get the word out and make art happen!
