This isn't your typical gig, so read closely.
To quickly introduce myself, I'm a one-of-a-kind MC: I'm a nonprofit leader by day and hip-hop artist by night. You can consider me to be the Batman of social impact.
After a big 12 months of shows across New York and speaking engagements across the country, I'm approaching the release of my new album...and that's where you come in.
I need a publicist who will ensure that my new album will reach maximum awareness and engagement. You will craft a customized strategy that reflects my brand and unique role in the intersection of hip-hop and social innovation. More specifics:
-I'm envisioning a three month project where you work on retainer to prepare for the launch, execute the launch, and manage follow-up
-Potential outreach includes placement in blogs/publications, album reviews, airplay, etc
-I'm expecting reports (at least bi-weekly) on agreed upon metrics for success
-Customization is critical. I will not work with publicists who have a standard method of promotion, e.g. blasting a press release to random contacts and hoping something sticks.
-The more personalized and unique you can be, the better. I'm open to suggestions on how we can deliver a powerful campaign.
-Max budget is $1,500/month
-I'd prefer to work with someone independent or a small team, as opposed to a larger company with large clientele. In short, I expect frequent, personalized attention!
I'll be honest - my momentum is moving in the right direction and my hip-hop is unlike anything you'll hear on the radio, but I'm not famous. I'm not like other MCs who will promise loads of money, girls, etc.
But - I will promise that you will be joining a true social movement at the ground level, and we have incredible opportunities to grow.
If you're interested, send me:
-One paragraph on what makes you unique for the role
-Two relevant examples of your prior work
-A price quote
If you don't fulfill these requirements, you will not receive a response. Your initial response is the first step - a chosen few will have a conversation with me about my brand and music, and then you will need to submit a full proposal.
This is an ideal opportunity for someone who is looking to prove themselves on the big stage - just like me. Let's make history.
*Note: I am also seeking a social media strategist. Check my profile to see that posting if you're interested.
