Various Cheats and Hints
If you are a beginner, start with Europe as the territory. It is slightly easier to get into the charts and earn some money.
Have at least one day free, with nothing on. If you book everything all the time, your members will be unhappy and quit.
Have at least one day of the week for training. If you do not train, they will become unfit etc. Sometimes money is needed for singles and albums, so have training at least once every two weeks.
At the beginning of every territory, bring out singles from the section that you did not create, already pre-made ones. For some reason if you get in the charts it is more likely that these ones have more chance at the beginning.
Try not to have more than one interview type thing a week.
If you get the chance to go on A Music show and you have an interview on the day, delete the interview and have the music show. You will get more singles sold on a music show rather than an interview.
Even though it is costly, try and have at least one Live Performance once every two to three weeks. It will boost your singles sales. However, do not have a live performance on the first time of every territory until you have at least got in the charts with a single -- it will just be a complete waste of a space for the week and money.
As for Live Performances, start on the lowest place and work your way up. Do not push your luck too quickly. It takes about seven singles in the charts to get a decent show up.
Do not waste money on marketing a single. You need to become known first; getting to number one is not the first priority.
Change the band members clothes every month to keep their happiness from going down.
