Eventually all artists should hire a publicist to get the word out about them. In the interim, as you're building your status as an artist, getting to know the basics of public relations & marketing (plus some bonus pointers) will help you further your career.
Not every event is big enough to merit the expense of a publicist, but you will be required to pull in audience at all of them nonetheless. A publicist has a brief interaction with you, and in order for them to best represent and market you, it's imperative that you provide them with concise, high-quality, clear information. "Know thyself" becomes more than a maxim, it's how you will maximize your results with a publicist or as your own representative.
