Social Media Gets M3 Client to SXSW in Austin TX Tech & Music

Carl Dylan Fans Show the World & SXSW Loyalty & Love with an iphone & a Song!

Kudos to our friend and M3 New Media client Carl Dylan from Gainesville, GA for qualifying to play at SXSW

And to the Social Media Influence from his Fans who LOVE him! 

How does one man, one band beat out hundreds of bands to play one of the main stages at the Live Music Capitol of the World, Austin, TX at SXSW? It’s called Social Media love from loyal fans! Carl Dylan and his band proved to the world just how powerful social media influence is with a fan and his iphone.

I got the email from Carl on February 29th about the competition with hundreds of bands battling to play in Austin, TX at SXSW Tech/Music Festival Carl needed exposure and votes. Carl Dylan Music has been a Twitter client of M3 for a few months @CarlDylan and with over 18,000 targeted followers for him to get the word out (we had a ‘leg-up’ on the competition)
He had less than 1,000 followers when we started working with him.

Here is what I shared with Carl via Facebook Email in February:
