Making Money with your music! Have you tried building your own email list?

Your mailing list is one of your most important pieces into making money with your music.

Without it, you will end up struggling, unfortunately. With email being the number 1 way to convert, it truly out shines Facebook, Twitter, and all social media sites.  It reaches more people than you ever could on any other social media site.

Now I’m not saying do not use social media.  You can still get fans by using it.  You can reach more than double the amount of people than you can on social media, and that is why we stress it so much.

To get people to listen to your music, you must get them hooked and connected.

Check out this short video:

How to introduce your fans to your music: http://youtu.be/uY41Nt0BbpQ

A great email idea is to tell your story.

What is your song about? What inspired you to write this song?

You want people to develop a connection with the song.You want to create a visualization in the mind of your listeners. Be in depth about it but also brief and to the point.

Another great thing to add is the lyrics to your song. Let them feel the emotion of your words to draw them into every single sentence.Let them feel that empowerment.And lastly, do not forget the link to your music.

With this technique, you will have a much better response from your fans and in the end, more people will listen to your work. The end result, you’re making money with your music!

What makes someone listen to a certain type of music?

 

What makes someone listen to a certain type of music?  What makes someone hate another type of music or style?

Feelings and emotions are the centers to the above questions.   People like to feel certain emotions while others will try to avoid others.  Some might feel as though a certain song may cause certain memories or emotions to trigger and fall away from those.

You may hear things like, that sounds boring, gay, too happy, too sad, too angry, or whatever the reason may be why they might not like a particular song.  A song they might hate might be a song that might be someone’s favorite.  Are we as human beings afraid to feel certain emotions and what has to lead us down this road?

One might question that whatever has happened to us in our lifetime is the reason behind all of this.  Maybe they hang out with a certain group of people and are too afraid to be thought of a nerd if they like something different from them.  It could also be that we as a society has trained our people to be a certain way.  A man is supposed to be manly and does manly things while women are supposed to be girly and do girly things.  This type of programming can affect the way someone views the world.

We have programmed men that they aren’t supposed to like anything associated with anything girly and the same goes for women.  If you do, then there must be something wrong with you as so society has said.  If this is the case, then this would affect one’s perspective when it comes to music.

Could this perspective hurt us and our creativity?  If you are constantly listening to the same type of music verse someone who listens to a wide range of music, then would the second person become more creative in the end?  Listening to a wide range of music could open you up to new possibilities that you may have never thought about.  Music is always changing and for it to change, it needs new ideas.  To gain new ideas, one must encounter all possible scenarios.  The more you consume it, the more ideas that will be brewed.

 I guess in the end when it all comes down to it, make sure to be true to you and don’t be afraid to feel certain things or do certain things.  Trying news things don’t have to be a bad thing.  It for sure makes life much more interesting, then doing the same thing all the time.   Don’t let certain music or style scare you.  Be daring, because you don’t know what you may find or discover about a particular song.  It may make you learn something and trigger some creativity that could really enhance your life.

How A Mentor Changed My Music Career

Hey, it’s Jason Szklarek back with another blog. I’m very happy to bring this info for you today.

Today’s topic is, how a mentor changed my music career. The smartest thing I did last year was hiring Jermaine Griggs. For those of you who don’t know, he’s an online mentor. He’s the reason I’m selling more beats online as well-being being a better person.

I challenge you to find a mentor in 2017 if you really want to be successful. Just imagine,

you find someone who is already successful. They already have done all the homework. It’s pretty much a win, win situation for you.  You could always keep trying yourself, but I know you’re smarter than that.

You see, there are tips and strategies that you can use every day to build your fan base even further. Yes, we all know about Facebook ads. However, what’s the correct way to go about using that platform? You see if you knew the answers to something like that it could really benefit you to the next chapter of your music career.

I mean why would you just want to post your music if you have no fans. You probably would be the same person who thinks nobody will support my music dream.  I really hate if that person is you. Yes, I know what that feels like, trust me.

Another great benefit for hiring a mentor is the one on one approach. Just imagine, you being able to ask questions directly to the main source.  Come on now, that’s priceless. Again, this person has done all the homework already for you. All you have to do is copy and paste his or her program.  I’m keeping this blog post simple and sweet, however, If you need mentorship I can personally help you out a win.

How to get people to listen to your music

 

Today, we will talk about how to get people to listen to your music. I know every day is a struggle trying to get people to listen to your music. It can be also frustrating as a music artist trying to get people to like you and your music.
 So what are ways you can encourage your potential fans into checking you out?
1)  Share your story
 Maybe this could be a potential Facebook status or a potential email idea to your current fans.  Set the stage by telling people the story behind your music.  What encourage you or inspired you to write this song.  Is there a story behind it.  Let your fans connect with you on an emotional level and bring the value into what you do.  When people can relate to you, they will want to listen more and more likely to check out your music.
2.  People will most likely buy from people they like
 An online presence is more important than ever before to the artist.  Since the majority of your fans will never meet you face-to-face, it is important to build a good reputation online.
Yes, there are a ton of artist out there, so how do you encourage people to become a fan of yours?  People like other people, because of how they feel about them. Maybe it is because of your personality that sparks them.  Maybe it is because you are so passionate about doing music.  Maybe you inspire those people through your words.  Maybe you are a good storyteller.  Maybe it is your charisma. Knowing YOU can make a big difference in how to get people to like you.  What is your best quality about yourself and use that to attract potential fans?  The first thing people will notice is YOU before your music.  If they like you, they will be more willing to check out your music.
3.  People buy from people they trust
 If people like you already, they are more likely to tell another 10 more people about you.  If Jill likes your music and tells her friend that they should check it out, well then her friend trust Jill enough to go check out your music. If you deliver what was expected, you gain trust.  People come back to people when they know what to expect.  So keep giving your fans what they want.
4. Be Social
 Your potential fans also want to be heard.  Connect with them.  Read what they have to say.  Comment, like and share and maybe they will return the favor. Wouldn’t you be most likely to check out someone else’s music if they are always connecting with you? You can connect with others through Forums, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, etc…  The possibilities are endless. If someone comments on your YouTube, blog, music, Facebook, Twitter, etc… respond back. Be sure to create an online home, so people will know where to find you and your music which is your website.  Maybe you will want to put a Facebook comment feed on your website to encourage more connection with your fans.  Don’t forget that mailing list either, so you can keep continuing to build a relationship with your fans.

How to get music gigs

Music Gigs: 

One thing you can do is find a local rapper/singer/or group who is already getting music gigs and have fans already. Then you can start building a business relationship with them. Once you have formed a business relationship, ask them if you can open a show for them. When at these shows, make sure you bring someone who supports your dream like a friend, family member, or spouse and ask them to help collect emails for you.

music gigs

While you are performing, have them go around asking people for their email.

They could say something like: “Would you like to join (insert name) mailing list? It is completely free, and we would send you free downloads of their music, ticket giveaways, see when our next show is, how we are doing and much more.etc.”

If they say yes, then have some paper ready, so they can give you their name and email.
Before you know it, you will walk out of that show with a few more emails to keep in touch with your new fans.

For there you want to use software to add them. This is the most effective way to market your music. Once you get this system down you can spend more time making music. At the end of the day, we all would love to create music all day. Having certain systems in place allows you to reach this desire much faster.
