I go to a lot of concerts here in NYC with bands that come from Europe and whenever they don't promote, they get a half full venue which is sad and bad for them. Last time I saw that was at the Sabath concert and I felt bad for them and angry with the so called fans for not showing up, but the band apparently had not promoted much. And this was a reunion of a band that's been around for ages.

I think VAMPS is lucky to have such loving fans, very lucky because otherwise they wouldn't sell any tickets at all with the kind of promotion they've been doing.

Sorry everyone, didn't mean to ramble. I'll stop now. If I offended anyone I apologize.


Spamming MySpace bulletin isn't also that effective.

1. All the bulletin will be received by Friends of VAMPS which probably, 75% of them are already going. No point.

2. Only J is running this MySpace page of VAMPS, atleast.. that's what it seems. Like you said, hire an assistant, but you have to understand, assistants aren't always helpful and especially this late in the game, it would be hard to fill that person in on everything about promotions. And besides, problems could involve things like money which they are probably on a tight budget.

It's really hard to promote a foreign band especially one that is as new as VAMPS. I applaud to those that are constantly calling those Radio Stations. I guess I will help put in a few calls this week.

I have also wondered that myself I mean they do have promoters here but they can't start promoting a month before the concerts and expect tickets to sell out I mean you saw how long it took for some people to get their fliers. People need time to save up money if they are going to go to a concert especially right now when everyone is nearly broke. If i hadn't already had some money saved up there no way I would have been able to attend the shows at least without selling an organ or something. 2-3 months notice isn't much time to get money together to travel especially for people with families to take care of. A tour this big should have been announced sooner it would have given them more time for promotion and fans more time to save up money to attend the shows.



-------------------------

I'm really sorry to hear about your cat Tracy. I really don't know what to say in a situation like this except, "I'm sorry." However, please do know that I really do mean it. I can't imagine what it's like to lose a pet (I've honestly never really had one before). But, I should imagine it's like loosing a friend, so for what it's worth, I am truly very sorry.

I also agree with your statement about there not having been enough time in terms of preparing to buy the tickets. *sigh* I think, though, we'll just have to work harder, then. However, I understand your circumstances right now, so no worries. We'll still be here when you're ready to return. :)

Much VAMPS-love,
H.P.

----------------------

I agree with you that promoting a foreign band is indeed difficult, but it's not impossible (I'm not saying that you think it is either). However, because we are running out of time, we need to utilize ALL resources at this point. While MySpace may not be 100% effective at the way we have it right now, if VAMPROSE is willing to pay for better advertising (i.e. like the movie advertisements that always dominate the home page), then it could very well work. I mean, even if the advertisements stay as they are now, there is still a chance that people who don't know about the tour will see it. Even if it's a small percentage of people, at this point, we need as many people as we can get to buy tickets for the tour.

Oh, and thanks in advance for making phone calls. ;)

Much VAMPS-love,
H.P.

I have been calling radio stations and sending requests online everyday but I agree we do need EVERYONE to do it everyday until they agree to play them.

I'm really sorry about your cat.
You've been doing a huge amount of promotion anyway. Devote some time to your kitty.

A half dead profile doesn't help either. That was really my point. People don't like spam and I agree on that for sure, but people also have a very short attention span these days with so much information overload so a constant reminder helps a lot. So yes, there is a point to posting bulletins. :)

Assistants can be super helpful if you do things right and ahead of time. Now budget limitations is another story and as you said it can limit what they do of course.

It is exactly because VAMPS is so new to many people that they need all the help and promotion they can get. This is why I think they have awesome help from the fans that post in this forum. :)

Couldn't agree more. If worst comes to worst, atleast we will be much closer to VAMPS. ;) As good as that sounds, tickets being sold out is better of course.

Question: Is there a day where they stop selling tickets? If not, Anime Expo would be a great place to promote VAMPS. It would be a last minute deal. I don't know if it is possible to set up a BOOTH (though I think it's too late) or just a small stand somewhere, and have people like us talk about VAMPS to others and play their music.

When is AnimeExpo? I believe that the tickets will remain on sale until they are sold out. I think setting up a booth or having someone there promoting VAMPS would be a really good idea. I'll let Ai know about that as well. Thanks!!

AnimeNEXT is coming up in New Jersey next weekend, I'll try and promote VAMPS then some, not sure if there will be anything else done to promote them, but I'll try. :/ (Waiting in line for a few hours for the concert will give me plenty of time to talk to people. >D)
