Many of our new StudioLinked members have reached out to us in regards to the proper path to take when it comes to the development of their brand and potential business.
At first, the whole process seems very daunting because as producers all we really want to do is create musical master pieces and have them be listened to and loved by the masses. The stressors that often arises typically don’t occur until after the creation side of things are finalized.
Questions that often arise:
How do I grow my fan base?
How do I position myself to be heard?
And how in the world do I prove that I have what it takes to work with the artists I desire?
Like most good things, it’s not easy but below are three key pieces any producer and artist should keep in mind when looking for a successful plan of attack.
1. Get your name out there
You have to push your brand and your name both online and in your immediate area.
Here at StudioLinked we are hunting for producers with soul and dedication, who look to create a new spin on the sounds we’ve come to love but if we can’t find you, how is anyone else suppose to?
In today’s market there are many platforms and communities available that will help spread your name and connect you with fans and artists, but the important thing to consider, is what will produce the best results.
Assess, assess, assess, it’s the modern day version of location, location, location as your online real-estate is so important.
Instagram, Youtube, Soundcloud, Facebook the list goes on. They all need attention and love. None of which has to be elaborate to begin but it does need consistency and to carry a theme and direction.
2. Protect and licence your music
Make sure that you licence and protect your music. The music business is highly competitive and copyrights can protect you from losing your work. Check out the following links on how to protect your music.
Once you have ensured you copyrights, you should look to license it. There are multiple options out there that will collect funds and draft contracts on your behalf, just be sure to check your emails and stay involved as many artists reach out looking for more information.
