1. PASSIVE (original) articles that include the client. Example, "Access to the fans worldwide for independent bands has increased exponentially since the introduction of the Internet in general, and iTunes in particular. before digital music exploded on the Internet, bands were beholden to getting signed by major labels to gain broad access to the distribution channels required to sell in mass. With new digital access such as YouTube and Vimeo, and socail media such as Facebook, bands are creating their followings. The Raskins, for example, a rock n roll band from Los Angeles, has gotten over 3 million views of their video single Lost In The Dark, and have over 144,000 Facebook fans. The group is currently on tour in the U.S.A promoting their 2013 album release "There And Back," beginning July 6th at the Viper Room (Los Angeles). ANOTHER EXAMPLE: A record review placed in an online ezine, such as Glide Magazine.
