mobile_marketing

This week’s Rock Star Life Lessons podcast features Dale Adams, owner and operator of Architek One, a music management and marketing company based in Atlanta.

During our chat, Dale and I discuss the possibilities for music marketing using mobile devices, which kinda blew my mind at the time (when I still had a regular cell phone).

Since this 2010 interview, Apple’s iPad (and other mobile tablets) has become popular for multiple uses, I finally upgraded to an Android Smartphone, and I always think back to this conversation with Dale, as his predictions came true. Tune into this interview for some mobile music marketing inspiration!
