Create flyers, which are an easy way to expose locals to your band. Post as many of your flyers as you can. Hit record stores, music shops, concert venues, and bars, along with any other places music lovers frequent.
Create a web site for your band and create profiles on free social-networking sites. An online presence will allow you to reach more people than just those in your geographical area.
Upload your music to your web site, social-networking sites, and public forums. Prepare CD demos that you can give away to people who might want to book your band or sign you to a recording contract.
Go to as many shows as you can, and listen to other bands. Talk to them about what they are doing to book gigs and be noticed.
