Austin's +Suite 709 is setting iTunes records for indie bands, based solely on word-of-mouth. One of the singles from this album has been featured on an international ad for Google+ ... check them out, please. They've got a smooth, harmonious R&B/Soul sound that crosses into the pop audience. Very refreshing. (Follow the band and +Dietrich Schmidt and +Jirod Greene as they launch their first national tour.)
+Suite 709 Breaks Top 20 on iTunes Charts!

Dear G+ Friends,

We are overwhelmed by the outpouring of support you guys have displayed in the release of our brand new album “Night & Day.” In the last 24 hours, because of you and your sharing, recommending, downloading, and reviewing, Suite 709’s “Night & Day” shot up to #16 in the nation on the iTunes R&B/Soul Charts!!! We are the only independent band up there by a long shot, and we don’t have a high dollar promo team pushing this album; just have amazing and passionate supporters like you spreading the album like wildfire!

We don’t like to send too many notifications, but we wanted to share this news with you guys, say "THANK YOU!!!," and ask for the next day or 2 to keep pushing, sharing, and spreading the word to all of your friends that like music! :)

iTunes Link for sharing:

Also, word on the street is that the iTunes team looks at reviews to determine whether the album is “Hot” or not, so if you have already downloaded, please take a few seconds to write a quick review on iTunes!

This is a true grassroots movement fueled by every single one of your shares, retweets, likes, and recommendations! We hope it’s as exciting for you as it is for us! We love you guys and are so grateful for every single one of you!

Do you need Influencers or Fans?
I think one of the facets of the 'influencer vs advocates' debate that is overlooked is how passionate advocates can be for their favorite brands. Is it better to appeal to an influencer with 50,000 followers that has little interest in your brand, or an advocate that has 1,000 followers, but who actually loves you?

101-year-old woman still drives her 81-year-old car, a 1930 Packard 740 Straight 8. She is quite a character, and I would love to have that Packard. (I used to be in the collector car business.)

Somebody opened the G+ floodgates! Thought I would finally go through my "Added you on Google+" notifications in the 3 weeks since I had surgery. Wow! Almost 1,000 new people? How did that happen?

No way I could make it through that many people. So if you circled me recently and I have not reciprocated, leave a comment below and introduce yourself. Thanks!

Thanks for all the new people who have circled me. Please drop a comment and tell me how we're connected, or just something about yourself. I don't automatically reciprocate followers here, but I'm always open to new connections and conversations. So please introduce yourself--and thanks again!
