Promotion Plans for “The Sound” Release Week!

It’s here, Footsoldiers! “The Sound” is officially impacting to rock radio this week, and we want to create as much buzz and mayhem as possible to attract attention from our friends, and hopefully enough mania to catch the eyes of some rock radio stations, as the song is going up for adds. So here’s what we’ll be doing:

1. Twitter

@reply to your local radio stations at least once this week, politely asking them to play the new Switchfoot song, “The Sound.” Be creative with how you request the song. Refer to this list for all the Alternative stations with Twitter pages that are being targeted! (If none of your towns are listed, choose the station closest to you)

2.  Wallpapers

(Grab your online materials here)

– Post the new “The Sound” wallpapers on your desktop. Bonus points if your computer is regularly seen by those around you!

– Post the banners on your Myspace, message board signatures, and anywhere else you can. Codes below:

4. Profile pic blitz
