Wanna know what it feels like to get punched in the stomach?
Go start yourself a company. Have it do pretty well. Well enough to the point where you can advertise in major music magazines. Then go do an ad buy in one (or more) of those magazines.
We just purchased a bunch of ads in Future Music and Computer Music, and spent a whole lot of money on a whole lot of nervousness. I'm reasonably adept with graphics-related things, but I don't have a lot of experience with making color ads, so I'm really sweating bullets on this submission, because it is a lot of money.
Which brings up an interesting point. It doesn't really do any good to have products if no one knows about them, right? Plus it is generally accepted (and who am I to argue?) that the average consumer needs three impressions of a product before they'll even go look at it. We're basically betting the farm on this advertising buy, so here's to hoping! If you're in the mood, now would be a good time to buy an Audio Damage product, because I've just drained our checking account.
