How to make it in the music business.
The music business is very complex. Whether you’re a musician or a songwriter, you must equip yourself with various tools if you want to survive. How do you get your foot into such a saturated music industry? I present you with a few tips. Music business tips.
#1: Create a niche market for your music.
You must decide between competing against the big boys in the music industry and creating a new market for your music. Many musicians become successful by channeling their focus to a new market. Instead of ‘fighting’ to get a piece of the existing music marketing pie, they venture out to make the pie bigger. They focus on niche markets which their competitors have neglected or have not considered. The children’s music market is one example of such a niche market. It all depends on your individual situation.
#2: You must have a plan of action.
If you don’t have a sense of direction, you will not make it in the music business. Producers, managers, record companies, booking agents and publishers like to work with artists who have their career goals clearly established. They may not work with you if you don’t fit that criterion. You have to take that first step before anybody can help you. If you have no career goals, you will never know whether or not you’re making progress.
#3: Make an excellent first impression.Whenever you present yourself or your product to someone, you should make an excellent first impression. You will never get another chance to do that. An initial impression can mean a contract, a contact, or sadly, the door. You want the best, so give out your best. A first impression could either make you or break you. Set a foundation for further success and progress in the music industry, by creating an overwhelming and compelling first impression.
