We are pleased to present the
Music Business Collective...
So many artists have the mindset that the missing piece between them and success is finding a manager, a booking agent, or a publicist….but while it’s certainly possible for these people to help your career, most of them are seeking out clients that are already well-established, have a large local following and a record or two released, and are generating a steady stream of income every month. Too many musicians dip into their savings account or set aside money from shows all year to hire a publicist, only to realize that they weren’t actually prepared for a publicity campaign. They hire booking agents before their band is really ready to go on tour. They hire friends as their managers who are more interested in getting a backstage pass than in setting the band up with contracts, riders, and opportunities.
Every artist has heard horror stories about artists who trusted and paid the wrong employee (usually months or even years before they’re able to pay themselves or their band members). But it continues to happen, time and time again. Why? Because it’s difficult for artists to know what to do next, where their energies should be focused, and how to best build their fan base. That’s where the Music Business Collective comes in.
Who Are We?
We are a collective of independent service providers (booking agents, managers, music marketing specialists, and accountants to name a few) who have joined forces to offer both traditional management services as well as educational information about how best for you to proceed with your career. Our affordable services range from low-cost educational packages (where we give you the tools and knowledge necessary to do most of the work yourself) to full marketing and management services. Above all, our aim is to guide you towards better awareness of how to turn your music into a viable career and to assist you in whichever areas you feel you need the most help, through free articles and guidance, downloadable materials, education, training, coaching, mentoring and management meetings. If you’re not sure where to start, we’re happy to take a closer look at your project and help you identify some goals and areas to improve.
How Does It Work?
Because each provider is able to focus on their own area of expertise, you can be assured that, regardless of which service you are choosing, you are getting the best knowledge and guidance available to you. You can also rest assured that you’re paying for exactly what you need (and nothing you don’t need), keeping your money where it belongs: with you. There are no contracts and no commitments. Pick and choose what you need, and depending on your budget and desire to learn, we will either teach you step-by-step how to succeed in whichever arena you’d like to focus on, or step in and do the work for you, allowing you more time to focus on your music.
