Why Advertise On TheRealMusician?

Traffic Stats

TheRealMusician Recommends:

If you want to take marketing your music to another level, then I can't recommend enough John Oszajca's music marketing manifesto. My favorite aspect of his complete program was his stance on email marketing, where he really leverages the that "1000 true fans" philosophy.

His website is a bit hokey (Flaming guitars? Seriously?), but his program really shows independant artists how to get a leg-up on signed artists.

TheRealMusician has a wide range of topics relating to music. The main focus of the site is to help musicians develop themselves until they are mature and successful in their craft.

We receive 50,000 page views a month, and a low 8% bounce rate.

Note on paid links and the no-follow tag: All advertising links on this site are professional, google-policy abiding no-follow links. Advertising on this site is available for the exposure to your brand and traffic to your website. 

It is not available to illegitimately pass on PR to you or your clients websites. You may feel this is unfair, but I'm simply trying to follow Google's rules on this, so that my site can continue producing high-quality traffic without being penalized. 

I also want to keep your site from being penalized (as Google catches on when you make a habit of purchasing links for PR, and they will penalize you sooner or later, wasting your money and time). 

For more info, see Google's article on No-follow links for advertising

Direct quote: "
Google works hard to ensure that it fully discounts links intended to manipulate search engine results, such as excessive link exchanges and purchased links that pass PageRank. If you see a site that is buying or selling links that pass PageRank, let us know. We'll use your information to improve our algorithmic detection of such links."

About The Writer

My name is Andrew Muller. I love creative art, music, television shows, movies, video games, and a good story.

If you had to find me somewhere, you would probably find me down at O'neils home cooking eating an organic sweet-potato bun breakfast sandwich with ham.

Among my friends, it's a "Muller Classic Move" to eat Mcdonald's at 2am because it's cheap and open 24/7. The joke here is that I'm an idiot. 

I play drums, guitar, piano, and I write & perform music for My Goal Is Telepathy. Take a listen to the latest sound here.
