Tom Bertram Street Team Mission Statement
Who We Are
We are a group of people that love and support Tom Bertram. We are recruiters, advocates, thinkers, and doers. We are here to spread the word and help Tom Bertram get his music out to the world. Our goal is to work together, as a team, to spread the word about Tom Bertram, and help him achieve his dreams.
The goal of the Tom Bertram Street Team is to actively promote Tom as a serious artist under the direction of Tom and/or his management. We, as his Street Team, will work hard to promote Tom’s music and keep his name out there to help develop and expand his fan base.
What is our role?
The Tom Bertram Street Team aims to promote UK Singer/Songwriter Tom Bertram, his live shows, and his music. It seeks to raise awareness of Tom Bertram worldwide by means of practical promotion, such as:
(1) Word of mouth – Create a general, constant buzz about Tom; spreading the word about Tom’s concerts, album releases, and other media appearances.
(2) Attending local music shows and encouraging others to do the same.
(3) Passing out handbills (“Flyers”) at shows, putting up posters in public places (that allow it); and
(4) Setting up and running merchandise tables at shows.
All while having fun with fellow Tom Bertram fans!
It seeks to help delegate promotional tasks to any and all willing, thereby “lightening the load” of the Artist himself so he may continue to focus on making good music. We welcome everyone who loves Tom Bertram and his music. While we know how special he is, a great deal of the general public will not know this yet, and he deserves for us to come together under one large umbrella and promote him as a unique, up-and-coming singer/songwriter trying to make it in the business. The best way we can do this is to follow the vision of Tom and his management and the goals they have set for Tom’s career. We’re here to support HIS goals, not our own.
We also need to remember that the actions and internet presence of an artist’s fans can give potential new fans just as much of an impression of who and what the artist is as the artist himself does, especially in the early stages of his career. Therefore we need to set the tone for the impressions new fans will get of Tom. We need to be able to draw the line between enthusiasm and zealotry, between a genuine appreciation for an artist’s work and a skewed belief that the artist is the be-all and end-all in today’s music world, and between sharing our love of an artist’s work with others versus forcing their music on others.
Our Greatest Obstacle
With the ever competitive music industry and the deluge of new artists, we need to increase awareness of Tom and let people know why HE is the one to listen to and support.
Our Greatest Strength
Tom’s fans are some of the most creative, energetic, fun and inspired fans in the world and we have faith that you’ll be able to help attain the goals set forth by Tom and his management team, and we’re very excited to be working with each of you!
