The omissions are mentioned inside the Kindle edition, but I didn't understand I was buying an incomplete version until I had already done it. I opted to return the ebook.
Following her advice we hired and trained a woman to book us who then built an agency (Elite Audience! in San Diego) by adding more artists to her roster.
We've recommended this book to many artists, several who have thanked us after, and we've bought three copies to give to our support team. The forms included are worth the price of the book alone, and the guidance for designing a press kit, writing your bio, how to use press to get more gigs ("It's not what you get, it's what you DO with what you get") will make you thousands of dollars.
Our website (cocolafe.com) is the center of our promotion and booking materials which were created following Jeri's advice.
You can use the book to tour regionally or nationally. You can use it to become the specialist, the 'go-to' musician or band for a niche market, or you can use it to plot a path to a steady, full time income playing music.
It won't do you any good if you're not ready to sweat; this is not a motivational book, it's a how to get to work and get paid. Well written, clear and with no wasted words or hype. If you're good, get this and earn what you're worth.
Even with over 50 years experience in the business I still learnt a few things. If you don't want to learn you don't want to earn.
