Things You Can Do To Help Promote Phil Johnson and Roadside Attraction

Remember when flyers used to work?    Me neither.

Remember when flyers used to work? Me neither.

People often ask me how they can help me promote my work. Especially if they don’t have any money to buy my stuff.  Which is perfectly ok. 🙂

And truth be told, the stuff you do is a million times more effective than anything I can do when promoting.  There are probably lots of artists you’ve ignored until a friend told you to check them out, right?

The most important part of the RA family is YOU.  So I thought I’d give you some suggestions of things you can do to help me spread my music and comedy to a larger audience.

Of course, I’m not asking you to do ALL this stuff.  Pick and choose whichever things you like.  It all adds up in the long run.  Nothing here costs you money and most of them take only a few seconds to do.

Plus… bonus… I always try to reciprocate on this stuff.  So if you’re trying to become more known this benefits you too. 😀

  1. Here in Chicago there’s almost no parking downtown anymore. As a last resort I had to park in a disabled space today and suddenly an angry traffic cop shouted to me…

    “OK, so whats your disability?”

    Quickly I replied, “Tourettes! Now piss off you f*cking c*nt!”
