    Ladies,

    What are you doing currently to promote Passion, Pain & Pleasure?  Trey made a valid point in his interview with Angela Yee, basically that there is so much focus on first week sales that many times the cd drops significantly down the charts weeks after it's release.  Considering that many of us are cool with meeting up with those that live in the same city/state do you think we can do something together to promote his cd?

I just checked billboard.com and his PPP is number 2 on the r&b/rap chart and Ready is number 22. not bad. bottoms up is number 2 on the singles chart. number 7 on the top 200.

We have to get his cd back up on the charts. We have to make Bottoms Up #1.

Oh that was cool. I'm glad he played it.

I like that idea.

We didn't hire a DJ. We kept asking the DJ that worked at the rink to play it and after a while he got tired of us asking and just told us to give him the CD lol. It was in the Galleria mall (which is one of the biggest malls in my area) on a Saturday afternoon so A LOT of people heard it.

And if we are able to do something, we should have some type of "Trey Day" global Angel events. Like...if we were to do the skating we should try to pick a day where different cities can all try to go and promote. Same for visiting stores and whatnot...if possible. Like one month hold a certain event...then the next month or the month after do something else, but still do things within the city whenever possible.

I honestly do believe that we can do something to promote his CD. This is definitely something that all of us should get together and pursue. I live in District Heights, MD which is in the DMV area. Anyone willing to do this can contact me. Twitter: @iSparks87 AND Email: KittyRiley143@gmail.com DM me on Twitter if u want my cell number. LET'S MAKE THIS HAPPEN ANGELS!!

sheaa:

Thanks for your response. Yeah I like the idea of street teams. Passing around flyers or whatever to promote his cd. Having people take a listen to the tracks is good.

I like the skating part, but I'm scared I might fall and bust my butt. So you hired a DJ? I'm sure we can convince some people to buy his cd. :) I think you all had some wonderful ideas. I'm sure we can come up with some good ideas.

I definitely do think thats a good idea. Promoting online is one thing because you never really know who buys what but in the street promotion is 100% more effective! Even if they don't buy...people get the opportunity to listen to a few tracks and then maybe it'll convince them to buy after.

A while back when I went HARD for B5 what we did was have one big fan club, but each city where there were enough people, we had our specific street teams. In those teams we would have little events when we made our own fliers to promote the CD, we went skating and asked the DJ to play the entire CD (we had to supply the CD of course) and that generated some buzz, went to the CD stores and tried to bribe people to buy it by holding conversations with each other...just praising the CD for what it was. It often got some good feedback. We made our own t-shirts and whatnot. Since we were all around 15-17 there wasn't much that we could do but since Trey has a much older fan base, I'm sure there are some other creative things that people could come up with.
