How Music Promotion Works

When artist get started doing music and when pursuing music they jump in head first; and don’t realize the dynamics behind how their music careers are suppose to work.

Most aspiring recording artist start off going to the studio and doing songs investing their music into getting their music produced & doing music video’s on You Tube & doing shows that they are not getting paid for. There is a right way to do this now let me explain:

Now if you want to learn about how to brand yourselves and want to become a household name properly than that’s what I’m here for. My information is down below!!!

Now what I’ve heard is how artist are promoting whole albums or doing 8 song EP’s instead of getting a whole album produced I encourage you to start investing in your music career into a radio campaign and have your Marketing intact.

Make sure you have your music copy written, you own the masters & if you do have samples of your music make sure you have all your music cleared and you are covered and will not get sued for Copy Right Infringement.

Now let’s talk about promoting your music on Royalty paying stations that pays royalties. This will include Internet & FM Campaigns build your spin history because major record labels execs and real music industry Producers will see you as more serious artist than the artist with just hot music. This puts you on a whole notha level in the music game..

Real radio promotion entails building your spin history, royalties, paid shows, exposure, sponsorships & being signed to a major record label & getting endorsement deals. At the end of the day the music business is all who you know so when you ready I’m here 4U!

Business Before Pleasure

For the past 5 1/2 months have been working for the company 4UEntertainment/Universal I always deal with so many artist trying to hit on me but men sometimes enough is enough. “Everyday is a new day in today’s new music age. Now I know lots of you get at get a little excited, and whether you wanna learn the business side or become a recording artist. Always remember business before pleasure some people don’t know how to separate the two focus on your music career and if someone catches your eye handle the business at hand. He or she maybe so business oriented that this could destroy any business deal so it clearly not worth it so focus on the business.

You are always going to be in the studio making music, and spending the majority of that time recording songs. You may have met someone attractive and articulate who know the business very well. It is possible they may not be entertained with that so do what’s important and stay focused on the business. I can’t stress that enough.

Let’s say you have a meeting with a potential manager or Producer and you have the potential to be a big star if the person that you have met is trying to make it personal if you are not asking for that this may not be a great situation. This is a male dominated industry so ladies or gentleman please come with your A-game every time what you do don’t know makes you the weakest link.

Your a struggling artist trying to make it, get a record deal and your just want the right person to discover your talent. Or your might even be attracted to the business aspect of it. Being personal with someone could arise conflict and mess up a wonderful business relationship. My vocal coach use to say don’t #uck your money. He always kept it real and at the end of the day I couldn’t do nothing but respect it.

Based on my own personal experiences, the best plan of action is learn the music business from both sides. There is empowerment in knowing all the tricks of the trade. You in essence protect yourselves from the evildoers in the music industry that don’t have your best interest at heart. If you have met someone that has your best interest at heart keep it business!!!

Attention Recording Artist there is so much that some of you don’t know, so it is best to learn everything about the music business that you can. You certainly don’t want to become the victim of a bad record deal or worse. Being personal and having a work relationship isn’t advised especially if you are looking to make a lot of money together not everybody is going to be the next Will & Jada or Bea & Jay.

If you have interest in someone it’s not worth to become personal with someone you work with. Women we are emotional and at times our emotions run wild from being intimate with someone that you work with and this could a bad situation and a definite no-no

Learn about the business so someone your working with won’t use this against you trust yourself and do your research and learn as much about the business that you can.

People will take your kindness for weakness and may use it for bad based on their knowledge base. Better yet always study the concepts of contracts, Publishing, Copyrights, Marketing & Promotions & that includes music Promotion.

I thought it might be a great idea to create a blog about the music business and mixing business with pleasure. I’ve realized that I like to empower people. Don’t be so blind-sided for fame and Fortune especially if don’t have an entertainment lawyer to handle this matters for you & don’t mix business with personal if you can help it. You will save yourselves from so many headaches! heartache and drama. I’m sure we all could live without chaos in our lives I know I can.
