DO YOU REALLY WANT TO SUCCEED IN THE MUSIC BUSINESS?

DO YOU REALLY WANT TO SUCCEED IN THE MUSIC BUSINESS?

When it comes to succeeding in the music business, let us talk about the proverbial “Elephant in the room”, you might be stopping yourself from succeeding.

At first glance, this statement might seem ludicrous, blasphemous, and even outright offensive to you; I mean, who would ever willingly stop themselves from succeeding?
Well, it has nothing to do with being willing at all, but when it comes to getting in your own way, it really comes down to a series of bad decisions that lead to missed opportunities, and some of those opportunities only come around once in a lifetime.
You might be under the impression that the music industry is over-saturated, or that there is no room for your style of music; you might even believe that being an artist in general is a bad career move.
I will meet you half-way here, and agree that there might be a grain of truth in all the above statements, but by no means, is this is the whole truth.

So, what are the most common mistakes that are currently derailing independent musicians, everywhere, from succeeding? Read on and find out.

DO YOU REALLY WANT TO SUCCEED IN THE MUSIC BUSINESS?

WEAK BRANDING (No clear idea of your desired image)

You should be clear on how you want to present yourself to the people. This is not as simple as offering up the music and walking away, this also comes down to imagery, attitude, and overall approach to marketing yourself.
To understand branding, you must first see yourself as a product. This is a tough pill to swallow for any musician that rages against the machine, or might believe that what they bring to the musical table has never been served up before. It is easy to forget that everything connected to money is a product, even the most creative and elusive artist is merely a potential payday for someone. The industry big-wigs are investors, not fans, and they won’t be putting you on a worldwide tour without seeing the inevitable dollar signs in your future; and branding is exactly what they are looking for here.

It is difficult to re-brand without losing some of the public’s faith in your commitment as an artist, so it is important to place some real thought into this. Your logo needs to reflect your sound, the art associated with your music needs to drive the message home, in regards, to what you stand for, and the professional quality of these things must never be compromised.

Your friend might have a camera, but is your friend a professional photographer?
You might know how to draw a stickman with a guitar, saying “Come to our show!”, but perhaps you should search for a skilled artist that understands the true visuals needed to pair with your unique music.
Genres exist as a sellable product, and your music has its own specific audience. Once you know who your people are, market to them, and them alone. Create a product that they will be attracted to, and look to other successful musicians in that field for ideas.
I am not saying that you need to copy, or that you need to chase money by selling out, I am merely stating the obvious fact; that musicians who brand properly, succeed far more often.

DO YOU REALLY WANT TO SUCCEED IN THE MUSIC BUSINESS?

DROPPING THE BALL (Not paying attention to the details)

Promoting your music is a major undertaking. It is not enough to make great music and wait for the masses to show up to the show.
You are going to need to look at the whole picture here, and that means that everything related to your music, your brand; your product, needs to be on point.
I field emails and posts from artists on a regular basis that leave me shaking my head in disbelief. You want me to promote you, to share your music, and to help you build your own musical empire; but the link you send me is broken?
I cannot stress how often this happens, and how terribly unprofessional it looks. When you create a Press Release, promote a website, or comment on anyone’s page, you MUST make sure that your link works. I am not going to GOOGLE a musician to find the real link, so you will need to fix that link immediately. My suggestion, if you don’t want to have to fix a broken link, then make sure to check it before you send it.

While we are on the topic of emails, messages and anything post related, let’s talk about proper English. I get that the English language is not everyone’s first language of choice, and since we promote musicians all over the world, it is not unusual for us to receive an email that reads somewhat broken in its delivery; with that being said, you must make a real attempt at being clear in what you want from the reader, and a heavy usage of slang is going straight to the trash bin.

Publications, music promotion companies, and almost all other aspects of the music industry, have guidelines and requirements before you submit your music. Make sure to look over these guidelines, and do not try to slide anything past their radar. If a publication does not approve of the message you promote in your music, but they like your genre of music, you should not be sending your music to that publication. Respect the industry, and don’t waste your time trying to win the wrong people over.
When you forget to pay attention to the details, you open yourself up to a world of music PR and music marketing hurt.

When you make one change on your website (like a logo change, profile photo change, or other), then you should reflect that update on all of them. Your brand should be cohesive, your message should be clear, and your attention to detail should be found in everything that touches your music.
Consider this, most best-selling books that get turned into movies, usually lose their real power.
Every time the story gets changed, even slightly, to accommodate a new medium, it loses its original essence; and your music is no different. The best an author can do, is create such a compelling storyline, that the essence of that book does not get lost in translation. The best you can do for your music, is to make sure that your branding, your message, and your story, is always being told the way that you want it to be; and that means that you will control the entire spectrum of your music, not just the part
The devil is in the details, and so is the potential success, and potential failure, of your music.DO YOU REALLY WANT TO SUCCEED IN THE MUSIC BUSINESS?

PAY TO PLAY (No money equals no chance)

I understand from the standpoint of a Music Promotion company, that this might seem like a shameless attempt at your wallet, but the hard truth is; if you aren’t willing to invest in your own music, then you won’t be succeeding any time soon as a musician.
There is so much about music that demands payment, and you cannot afford to be cheap or frugal, or whatever word you might use to describe it.

I have known two types of musicians, those that make excuses for why they cannot afford to invest in their music, and those who do whatever it takes to get the money to move their music forward.
I don’t have to tell you which musicians succeed far more often, but I will (the ones who pay up).

When it comes to promoting your music, and expanding your fanbase, there are too many potential places to spend your money to name them here, but a few of note would be; Music promotion, your new music video, merchandise, Facebook ads, travel costs for touring, purchasing new gear, flyers, etc.
The fact is, if you make excuses for not being able to come up with the necessary money, you are only making it easier for the resourceful musicians that focus on getting the money over trying to find the next excuse to avoid spending it.

DO YOU REALLY WANT TO SUCCEED IN THE MUSIC BUSINESS?

 

TAKE BIG ACTION (Being a weekend warrior won’t cut it)

It is great when you finish a project. Having one finished song is often enough for many musicians to impress their friends and family, but we are not talking about a side gig, a little hobby, or some part time job; we are talking about your music career.

Have you ever looked at a musician and thought “I wish it could be that easy for me to get famous?”, well, it isn’t easy for anyone. I don’t care what musician you choose, or how much you think their music is basic and empty; if they are touring the globe, selling millions of albums, and creating a world recognized brand, then you can bet your bottom dollar that they are working their ass off to get there!
Almost all rock-stars, pop-stars, whatever-stars, that you see, have been putting in serious overtime to reach the type of success that you crave for yourself.
They don’t talk about doubts and giving up, they talk about knowing their worth, and how they went after their dreams like a shark to blood.

We can talk all day about how hard life is, how many bills you must pay, or the fact that your boss has asked you to come in on your day off; but all those things are separate from your music, and they should not be tied so tightly to your music career itself.
You will always have bills to pay, and you will always have doubts, and chances are, you will always have to work a bit, so it is not about letting those things weigh you down, it is about working with those commitments, in such a way, that you find a better balance in your life.

Develop minimalistic habits, sell what you don’t need, stay away from trying to impress the world with all of your shiny toys, and focus on making your music a real success (by the way, having a successful music career is not just about the money).
I imagine that you make music because you enjoy it, right? Don’t you want more time to create it? Wouldn’t you already feel like a success if you could manage a better balance between work and creating music? Well, you can, but it takes some real action, and big action at that!

Stop thinking about work, and bills, and the million distractions. Grab a pen and a pad RIGHT NOW! and head to a coffee shop with one purpose, to create a better plan for yourself, so that you can tell the universe that you are serious about your music.
Create a plan of attack, work with the numbers, with your job, with your time, and make sure that they are all working for you and to your advantage. Once you like what you are looking at, commit to your decision and make your first real move.

The sacrifices I have made to write my most recent book, From Indie To Empire, were many; but it was worth it, and I am excited to sacrifice even more for the next book!
Once you start taking big chances, by taking big action, you start to develop a taste for it, and all the possibilities start to present themselves to you.

So, no more weekend warrior attitude for you, if you want to succeed, and I mean, truly succeed, then it is going to take your best effort, anything less and you might want to consider another hobby.

PLEASE DON’T SEND YOUR MUSIC TO AN EARLY GRAVE

PLEASE DON’T SEND YOUR MUSIC TO AN EARLY GRAVE

PLEASE DON’T SEND YOUR MUSIC TO AN EARLY GRAVE

Your music might be world changing and awe-inspiring, but if you handle that gem the wrong way, let me tell you, that gem is getting dropped straight down a six-foot hole in the ground; and good luck finding it after that.
Stand back for a moment, and consider looking at the whole picture of your intended musical journey.
Try to consider, not only the creation of the music itself, but attempt to visualize the process of getting that music to the masses. If you can only see the simple act of offering up your music with nothing more attached to the project, then you might want to consider ditching the idea of a successful career in this fast-moving industry.

If you want your music to be heard, and I mean really heard, then you are going to have to put some real thought into how you plan on releasing your musical children out and in to the world.
Providing you have a professionally recorded song, or song’s, in your possession, you can now plot out a real course of action; but if your music is recorded cheaply and without the care of a professionally discerning ear, then your musical ship is off to rest in Davy Jones’s Locker.

PLEASE DON’T SEND YOUR MUSIC TO AN EARLY GRAVE
Coheed And Cambria

 

You need to consider the full scope of the artwork that you are going to pair with your sound, and this is not a place to drop the ball in the least. In fact, many successful musicians are known as much for their imagery and branding, as they are for their music. I, of course, am not suggesting that you channel your inner Behemoth, Marilyn Manson, or Bowie, to achieve a successful ending to your story; but I am suggesting that you consider the importance of having a clear idea of who you are and what your music is about at-all-times (and especially before coming out from obscurity with your music).
If you look to musician’s like TOOL, Coheed And Cambria, and The Black Atlas, you will see musicians that value the imagery as much as the music, artists that understand the raw power found in a great piece of visual art. Can you imagine any of these bands without their powerful imagery? I didn’t think so.

Now that you have your professionally recorded music in-hand, and the killer artwork to share among the peoples (and cats) of the internet; now you must make a decision as to how you plan on sharing this great new piece of art? What social media sites will you share it on, and do not say all of them, be specific, be focused, and choose the ones that you will continue to share on every day.
Before you let that music out, you should consider the power of the coveted first listen.
If you are a new band, this might be a bit of a hard sell, but if this is your second song or album, and if you have more than a few social media followers, you will want to consider offering up that new release to a powerful publication to share first for you. In fact, you must offer it up if you want to reach people in an effective way, and publications love premieres.

PLEASE DON’T SEND YOUR MUSIC TO AN EARLY GRAVE
TOOL-Lateralus

Imagine trying to build a car while simultaneously attempting to drive it down the road? Impossible, right?
This is very much a proper metaphor for your music as well.
You must have as many of the marketing pieces in place as you can before you send that music down the open highway. No, this does not mean that you have-to know everything, but it doesn’t hurt to have a real plan of action here.
You should know who gets the premiere, and when they are getting it.
You will want to plan your release week, in such a way, that it hits on all the important points of your music.
Where can I hear the music? Where can I share the music? And ultimately; Where can I buy the music?
You want to make the whole process as streamline and professional as possible.
Have your website ready to up-date and show off on release day, and make sure your places to sell the album are up and running on the same day as well.
Make a note of every major new event on your social media, and do not stop in offering up the musical goodness either. Offer promotional give-a-ways, lyric videos, behind the scenes footage, whatever it takes to keep the hype train moving full steam ahead.
Make sure all-of your links are working and ready to go on day one. I cannot stress this enough.
If someone goes to buy your music and they can’t find the album, that sale is gone.
If someone wants to share your new song and there is not share button on your website, that’s one listener stopped from getting you one more.

PLEASE DON’T SEND YOUR MUSIC TO AN EARLY GRAVE
The Black Atlas

Plan to release your new music ahead of time and let people know that it is coming. Give them time to talk about it, and do not rely on Facebook to share it without paying for an ad. Do not mass email anyone about the exciting news, individually reach out to the people, or pay for the ad-space, then it will be seen by many.
Never be afraid to invest in yourself and your art.

Understanding the importance of the setting up the hype before the release date will, ultimately, save you from the heartache of feeling as though no one is listening.
You must tell people how to view your music, without actually-telling them. Treat it like a big deal and so will they; make the mistake of unceremoniously releasing it in secret, and no one will see the importance in sharing what you have-to offer.
It is your music, and your listeners are your army, and they need to be led by a passionate leader.

Obviously, this topic could fill a book in-itself, but for the sake of you the reader, just know this; you should view the first week of your release as a truly special day in advance, and set up the pieces ahead of time, in-order to guarantee that your release week will shine brightly.
If you can do this, you will not make the mistake of sending your music to an early grave.

TOP SEVEN WAYS TO KNOW IF YOUR SONG IS READY FOR RELEASE

TOP SEVEN WAYS TO KNOW IF YOUR SONG IS READY FOR RELEASE

Often, whenever an unready indie musician approaches me about possible music promotion, they say things like “You must hear this amazing song that I made” or “I am ready to explode onto the scene” or worse yet “I have created something no one has ever heard before!”
Look, I get the enthusiasm, I really do, but the on-the-surface excitement felt by a musician hyped on their own new music must be scaled back a bit, in-order to see the whole picture that is.

There are always going to be those who rush to the finish line, those who think that paying their dues, or putting in the effort do not apply to them; but, they apply to almost everyone, and how you craft your song is one part creative, one part skill, and another part industry rules.It is great to have enthusiasm and confidence, but let’s focus on the music here.So, without further ado, here are seven great ways to tell if your song is ready to release.

ONE: DID YOU HAVE IT PROFESSIONALLY RECORDED IN THE FIRST PLACE?

 With today’s incredible technology at your fingertips, what used to cost hundreds of thousands of dollars can now be achieved with a great computer and some software…of course, I am only speaking about the ability to record the music, this advancement is not enough to take over the great ears of an actual music producer or sound engineer.As an independent musician, your funds will most likely be a little, how should I say it? Slightly non-existent.
This might stop you from landing the industry’s big wigs to work with, but it shouldn’t stop you from finding someone who truly loves to record, and has the gear to do it properly; because recording it yourself, without any real skill or understanding in what the recording process takes, is not a good idea, at all.This one tip should take out the need for the next one, but no matter what, you still need to focus on quality control, no matter who touches your music.

TWO: DOES YOUR SONG SOUND GREAT ON HEADPHONES, IN THE CAR, AND ON YOUR STEREO SPEAKERS?

This might seem like an obvious one, but you would be surprised at how many musicians play their music off one source and then release it to the world.
The fact is, you need to test your track on multiple different platforms to get the data necessary to know how your song really sounds.You cannot listen to anything on one device and hear it for what it is, there is simply not enough information to go off here.
So, listen to it on your computer speakers, pull out those twenty-dollar headphones, and crank it in your car. If you are pleased with the results across the board, then you have succeeded in your quality control.
Of course, your opinion will always be slightly skewed when it comes to your own music, so make sure that you bring a couple of trusted friends along for the ride, and make sure they are the type of real friends that will tell you if the song is weak in any areas.

TOP SEVEN WAYS TO KNOW IF YOUR SONG IS READY FOR RELEASE

THREE. COULD YOU HAVE MADE THE SONG ANY BETTER?

It is exciting to release new art to the world, and with the average internet user demanding instant recognition for their greatness, it is easy to fall victim to a premature shot being fired. Relax, you have time, this isn’t a race to the finish, it is a journey, and you should treat it as a gift to be able to discover your own artistic vision, on your own terms, and on your own time.
Many authors will tell you that their book is done when the story has reached its logical end, and your music should not be any different. When you have wandered the peaks and valleys of your own mind, your own heart, and within the song itself, only then will you have something that you should be willing to stand behind.
I have always said that “I move you, because I move myself first”. This ideology comes from my own belief, that your art and your music must make you feel something, before it can possibly make someone else feel something as well.Make sure that your song captures both the emotion and the story that you are trying to tell, and make sure to take your time with it. Write the first draft, let it breathe, come back and add more, let it breathe even more. Pay attention to the evolution of the song, if it was a heart rate monitor, does it have a pulse and a life like a heartbeat, or is the song a bit of a flatline?
I know, this is all a bit philosophical, but I wouldn’t mention it if I didn’t truly stand behind it.I have heard many songs that sound like they were afraid to go emotionally deeper, songs that gave you their tricks right out of the gate, and by the end of the song you felt like you just listened to the same loop for over three minutes straight. Yes, if you want to come in like a bullet, do it, but only if that is the point of the song in the first place.
Make that song shine, the best that you can. Make it a journey (Think TOOL, RISHLOO, Tom Petty, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Smashing Pumpkins, “Early” Metallica, and so on). Each of these musicians created powerful music by refining their songs before we ever had a chance to hear them.
Want to be great? Don’t rush the song out.
If you think you can make the song better, then you must make It better, anything less is an insult to your own artistic self.

FOUR: HAVE YOU HAD A LISTENING PARTY?

 You do not need anyone’s opinion as to whether your music is good enough or not…well, that’s a half truth.
The real-truth is, you want people to listen to your music, right? You want them to pony up their hard-earned money to fund your career in music, right? Of course, you do. So why is it taboo to consider the opinions of your listeners when it comes to the finished product of your song? Perhaps, it is because it is considered a dilution of the artist’s original intention, and that makes sense, but we are not talking about listening to every opinion, just the ones that keep reoccurring in regards to specific areas of your song.
So, what areas should you be open to considering when having your listening party? Does the song sound complete to your audience? Does anything stand out in a negative way? Perhaps vocals that are too low, drums that are too loud, or something else that is technically distracting?What you want from your immediate listeners is the direct feedback of their experience, because they are your audience, and they will help you create something that they will buy and share, and that is how you will avoid creating something that only impresses you.Be open-minded about the experience, show a varied group of people, with one similarity, they at the very least, like your genre of music.
If you make country music and your friend loves only metal, then you might want to consider leaving that friend out. You will need to bring in the sort of people that have a trained ear for your style of music, and that way, you will get the best possible feedback that you can.

TOP SEVEN WAYS TO KNOW IF YOUR SONG IS READY FOR RELEASE

FIVE: DOES YOUR SONG HAVE AN IMAGE?

 Music is always paired best with great imagery.You will want to consider the entire project when thinking about the artwork for your song.
Eventually, you will be releasing an EP or LP, and for the most part, you will want all the artwork to compliment each other in the end. Find yourself a great artist to collaborate with, let them hear your song and then discuss if they believe they can compliment your music with their art.Perhaps, you come across an image from a photographer that speaks to you and captures the essence of the song, if so, contact that photographer and make the handshake happen.
No matter how you go about finding an artist, or creating your own imagery to pair with your song, you must make that decision before you ever release your track.
People will always judge a book by it’s cover, and your song will be judged just the same, trust me.

SIX: YOUR PRESS RELEASE IS READY!

This one doesn’t need too much explanation, but just to be on the safe side here, I will dig in further.Musicians today are succeeding more and more through their online efforts, and when it comes to promoting your music online, it must be done with a proper, professional, Press Release. Anything less than that and your outreach is dead in the water.
There are many great articles and services to help you build your own if you do not know where to start (there is a chapter in my book From Indie To Empire that specifically deals with this), but no matter which source you use to get your information, make sure that it is up-to-date, and industry standard.
If you do this, you will succeed far more often in your own musical PR efforts.

TOP SEVEN WAYS TO KNOW IF YOUR SONG IS READY FOR RELEASE

SEVEN: DO YOU HAVE A MARKETING PLAN READY?

 Now that you have all the necessary pieces in place; a song that has undeniable emotional impact, that is professionally recorded, has passed your own quality control, impressed your intended audience, and has incredible imagery selected to pair with it, now that you have your professional, industry ready, Press Release; now you are set to market it properly and effectively.
Where to start?
Who get’s the premiere? That’s where.
Marketing your music is easily a book’s worth of information (I should know, I wrote a book on it), so I am not going to try to dive in too deep here with all the potential possibilities, but I will say that you do not want to blow your premiere opportunity.
You get one chance to release your song the first time, and because of this, you will want to figure out who you want to approach about premiering it.
You will want to make sure that your social media is set up and ready to share this premiere opportunity, and you will want to have an idea of where you will be sending those Press Releases to.
Once you have sat down and written out a solid plan of marketing attack, and once you have your premiere date set up, you will be ready to take over the online airwaves with both confidence and clarity!

PSA (Haters Gonna Hate)

Empire Music Promotions

PSA (Haters Gonna Hate)

I am not one to call people out, even if they are busy calling me out. I choose not to engage in the anger of others, as it inevitably brings unnecessary discomfort into my own life.  I believe hard work will always override the slander of others, and I believe an honest agenda will always gain you more ground in business; I also believe that this can be said about all corners of both business and the arts.
You have music to offer the world right? You made that music with passion, with honesty, and with the desire to reach out; but what happens when someone else accuses you of not being “authentic” or creating art for the money? Do you engage in that battle, defend yourself, and muddy up your own clear thoughts with the hazy negative intent of another? I certainly hope not.

PSA (Haters Gonna Hate)

So it is important to be true to yourself. To create music, art, and business in such a way that it is a part of who you are. Others will try to stop you, and that is usually a sign that you are doing something right, and you must always remember that stepping into the ring to fight means that you will not be stepping out of the ring to create any time soon.  It is to be expected that radio stations will not play your music, that some bloggers will attack your style, judge your motives, and try to slow your pace. You will face resistance, but resistance is friction, and through friction real personal growth happens. You must never look to a negative review, a personal attack, or anything of the sort, and accept that disruptive view into your own psyche. Resistance will be your friction, and friction will be for your own betterment.

Empire Music Promotions is built upon a foundation of trust with our clients. We offer the best advice that we can, the best service that we can, and with the most transparent ethos that we can; yet, as this company builds, we face personal attacks from would-be competitors who try to slow our pace; and it reminds me of a lot of the adversity I have already had to overcome in this life.

I urge musicians to keep silent when you can. To choose to not engage in future personal attacks, negative reviews, and or any other type of attack on your music and who you are; because you have better things to do, more music to create, and because you will ultimately win in silence.

PSA (Haters Gonna Hate)

I am intentionally not mentioning the company that has been attacking me personally because I do not want to draw attention to their efforts, I do not want to give them a voice, and because I myself (like you) have much better things to do with my time.
So if there is a lesson to be learned here, a piece of advice worthy of carrying with you into your future musical career and life, it is this;  adversity is to be expected, your reaction should be calculated, and you should never waste your time defending who you know you are to those who obviously do not.
