Let INXS – KICK start your Blog

As you may have seen in the Australian Media, INXS have recently been boosted to the top of the Music Charts in Australia due to both a mass marketing campaign for the recent TV drama based on the story of the rise of INXS, and the music shops that are playing the amazing KICK album that sold out Wembley Stadium in July 1991.

INXS are a Perth band who due to a lot of hard work and media attention broke into the American and European music screen in the late 1980’s with their album KICK. I was one of the lucky Teenagers that got to see them live at the Nottingham Concert Hall in the UK before the Album really took off.

In the 1990’s Social Media was unheard of, and the only way to break into the music industry was to draw attention to yourself either via the newspapers, radio, or TV, and also have some great music and public appeal. Michael Hutchence helped this along by dating famous celebrities such as; Helena Christensen (Supermodel), Kylie Minogue (who was famous at the time for her lead role in the hugely popular Aussie Drama ‘Neighbours’), and Paula Yates (UK TV celebrity and ex-wife of Sir Bob Geldof).

These public relationships Let INXS Kick start their world music domination, and threw the band into the spotlight in the UK and USA, and created the attention the band needed to get their music heard outside of Australia. So why not Let INXS – KICK start your Blog?

How to create Blog Traffic

INXS haven’t been this famous since the lead singer Michael Hutchence died, and young people are discovering their great music for the first time now thanks to both traditional media channels and Social Media, and writing about current trends and media topics will grab the attention of those searching to find more, and is a great lesson on How to create Blog Traffic.

Today INXS have a presence on the leading Social Media applications; Facebook and Twitter, and probably others. This has helped them to stay in the spotlight and created hundreds of threads and comments regarding the actors, story-line, and reality in the recent TV drama. It has also hugely increased their following, which has since driven their KICK album to the top of the Australian charts again.

One way you can kick start you Blog Traffic from the recent attention, is to right relevant articles, which can either be controversial, or informative about the band. You may then want to add a product from the Amazon store (INXS – KICK Album), or other memorabilia.

Writing Reviews

Writing reviews of the show, or of their Albums / Concerts / Band Members, is another great way to draw traffic to your Blog.

Be careful to make it relevant to you Blog topic though, as INXS and cookbooks may not work well together, and Google will not see the relevance. However a Music Blog, or Fan club Blog may be more relevant as long as you can tie it back into your recent post. There are always ways to make it relevant to a cooking Blog, such as researching what food the band like best, or a Cake iced like one of the Albums! By doing this you can Let INXS KICK start you Blog Traffic.

They got me with that INXS telemovie. Haven’t bought any albums but still find myself quietly singing Original Sin at some point each day

They certainly wrote a lot of classics, I fully recommend you buy / get hold of either the Kick album, or Listen Like thieves for some rockin’ tunes.
