music, general music press and other media, as well your fans /
followers etc/... Please be sure to mention that your work can be
purchased on line - this gives you a better return! It will also
allow people to browse other artists' CD's on the site. Remember
that if everyone does this, everybody's sales should increase! Give
them the exact address (URL) of the web site, which is www.nightcafe.co.uk
You may wish to add a link on your web site to the above address, or
contact us for a rather nice banner graphic to link to us with!
we promote your products / our web shop:
We are regularly in contact with music and more general
publications to promote our shop, we also like to think that all our
artists and record companies make people aware of the shop. In
addition we are registered with many shop portals like Shopping
Village, who send customers our way, we have also submitted our
site to the major search engines. From time to time we undertake
more general advertisements in magazines and periodicals (this is
partley what we do with our 40%)!
also have a large supply of "stickers" in the best
traditions of the music business and we would hope that you and
yours stick these sensibly, but remember that "all the worlds a
shop" and that the Night Café can ship globally! - If you
