As a musician or other artist you know if you want to get your art out into the world you’ll need to come up with a marketing plan. There are now a lot of online marketing courses out there that are designed specifically for musicians and other artists that claim they will get you results. Often the price tag for these courses are high. I was one of those people who bought an online course only to find the marketing techniques taught did not align with my values and was not a fit for my personality.
You as a person and an artist are unique and your marketing plan should be unique as you. There are lots of similar products out there but each company needs to personalize their brand and marketing to reflect their values. This holds the same for musicians and other artists.
In this video I share with you how I started devising my marketing plan. The answers to two questions helped me construct a comfortable and solid foundation for my soon to be implemented marketing efforts.
If interested, please grab a snack and have a look!
I know there are a lot of you musicians out there wondering if the online music marketing courses are worth the money? Back in 2016 I took the Savvy Musician “Online Musician 2.0” course and in this video I will share with you my thoughts regarding online music marketing courses.
If you are contemplating purchasing one please pull up a chair and hit “play” for some insights!
See you soon!
Oh geezzz, this update is seriously late and you have my regrets. The good news is that the music project is coming along quite well…the bad news, well I see a time management class in my future.
Hope you are all working on your art and everything is coming together for you as well. I as you might agree it’s great being in the “zone” but wow, the time goes by fast. I am in the process of deciding my marketing plan for this project. Once I have a plan that makes sense I’ll share with you how I arrived at creating it. I am guessing it will take time to see the results but hopefully following my trial and error will help you with your own plan.
In the video I share what this concept album is about, where it’s at in production, as well as letting you hear my upcoming thoughts for some marketing. Lots to do but admittedly a fun journey!
Looking forward to chatting again soon…
Hello My Friend!
Hope you are doing well and working hard on your art! It’s been a long winter and time to ramp things up! It always feel good to step it up in spring, doesn’t it?
Things are starting to get exciting with the music project. I have been faithfully meeting my three month goals and we are “a movin’ forward!”
There is so much I want to share with you. There are many things that I am doing differently now than in the past that I feel are going to make this project so much more successful. The new techniques I am implementing are changing the game for me so perhaps if I share them they will for you too!
Here’s an update on the music project, so if you’d like, please pull up the couch and tune in!
Best to you all and talk again soon!
I hope you are having a fantastic start to 2018! For me, so far so good and fingers crossed it continues! I was only going to take December off due to the holidays but I missed January as well. I had gotten sick, had to do some traveling, blah, blah, blah…so now I’m back. For the moment I will provide updates on my music project monthly. I may do more later on as I progress but I think monthly is the right pace at this point in time until things get rolling at a quicker pace.
In this video I recap the end of December and share with you my end of year goals (and if I attained them?) and also share my new 2018 ones. I like to set three month goals because they are a bit easier for me to manage and seem more attainable to me.
I really hope you are working hard on your own art whether it’s music or something else! Feels so good to be creative, doesn’t it!
I’ll see you in March!
Just wanted to give you a quick update before I take a few weeks off over the holidays! Not too much new to report but I am on track to finish my fifth song on my concept EP by the end of December. I have to say that enforcing some discipline on myself helped me “stay the course” to reach my goals.
I will have new and exciting things to share in 2018! Once I am done writing the “meat and potatoes” part of the songs I will start to fill them out in Logic Pro. I will also talk with my friend Matthew about putting together a live production and probably start marketing a little harder too. I also am contemplating adding a short film with this concept cd so lots on deck!
I hope all of you have a great holiday! I celebrate Christmas and a Merry Christmas to you if you do as well! If there is a different holiday you celebrate I hope it is enjoyable!
So here’s to what was a great 2017 and to an even better 2018! Look forward to chatting again in January!
Best to you all!
