The StarMentors “POD” Publicity On Demand Program

Put a professional Top Publicist in your corner, anytime, anywhere “ON DEMAND”


Every successful professional Entertainer, Band or Artist at the right time of their career must incorporate and partner with the right media relations person. This Publicist MUST be someone who knows how to open the doors to the media, news, magazine, TV networks and the entertainment industry in a whole. Behind each and every fulfilling career in the entertainment business there is a great talented Publicist behind the scene directing the success.

Our “POD” program was created for the bands, groups and independent Artists that are serious about getting the right exposure, accessing the power of the media to further their career and making a strong impression on the industry. Having good public relations can be the limiting step to success.

The StarMentors “POD” Program was added to our “STARPOWER” outreach to provide our artist clients and bands with the top resources to help their careers move to the next phase. The “POD” program puts a powerful partner in your corner that will create the result that can make the real difference.

The primary function of the publicist in the music industry is to handle all media and public relations on behalf of the Artist, band or performing group. All Artists should consult with their publicist before any communication with the public. The music industry publicist usually works with the musician's booking agent, manager and lawyer to ensure that the artist's image is always maintained and the correct information that will help their careers is always maintained. That is why you need to join the “POD” Program.

Most Artists, groups and bands do not generally need a full time professional publicist. However, All Artists that are serous in building a successful organization should include a Publicist at some point to put the right activities in motion. This is where the “POD” Program comes into play. Our seasoned, knowledgeable, proven and professional Publicists are here to help and provide sound and solid advice, support, coaching and mentorship on how to connect with the right media.
