Ryan Clement spent the last five years working with other music industry entrepreneurs to create an independent artists, bands and music producers dream music marketing system that has been tested and works like a charm. Your goal is to use our free email marketing system which comes with "The Music Marketing Engine" and "Music Management 101" so that you can give away one of your songs along with your newsletter to potential fans in exchange for their email address so that later after less then 5 points of contact you can turn your potential fan into a paying super fan that will also share your music with plenty of other potential fans. It’s a fact that if I contact the right person up to five times, you will make a conversion/sale. You will get a lot of regular fans but only your super fans will pull out their credit card and buy your single, EP or LP album. The difference is that an EP is only 5-8 songs and sells for around $8 dollars and an album is 10 to 15 songs and sells for around $11 to $13 dollars. If you follow "The Music Marketing Engine" and "Music Management 101" close, step by step then you should get at least 5 sales out of every 100 visitors for around $10-$13. I sell my Super Fans a 30 Song “Triple Album” Called “True To This” plus a signed T-Shirt for $34.95 but it takes time to get up to this sales status but if you follow the instructions in these two books I know that you will get there. I use a marker that’s kinda like silver paint to sign the T-Shirts that I ship with my "Triple Album". I want to give you an example of the kind of quality music that is capable of generating these kinds of sales numbers so I added a link below to my 30 Song "Triple Album" Called "True To This" on CD Baby.

- You must be into self music management until you get the attention of a top music manager or Record Label A&R. inexperienced music managers just simply get in the way, a large portion of them don't have the foggiest idea of what the hell they are doing anyway. I have yet to meet a Music Manager that can actually sell autonomous music so what can they really accomplish for me besides get me in a bent 360 deal and I for sure aren't giving a record label or far superior a major music distributor apiece of my merchandise. I sell a "Triple Album" which is 30 songs called "True To This" with a signed T-shirt and receive $34.95 from each sale so forget selling singles. Despite everything, I'm trying to figure out why Spotify can't afford to pay artists when their subscription cost is peanuts compared to what number of paying users they have now. I have to let you know! As an indie artist, I don't support Spotify or any of the other music streaming services, I won't make reference to any more of them but they all screwed up the music industry much more. As a indie artist with some integrity, please y'all your not making any sense. I figured it out the day I heard an mp3 and I realized INTERNET speed would be increasing but I may have been at the right place at the right time and at the ripe age of 18. I Founded these businesses selling the best quality the music industry related products and services so I can contribute a large portion of the sales revenue into my music career and I have 3 Full Albums mixed and mastered and I own all the rights to every song except "We Can Party", and "Kids Hugs Love" those songs were written by me but produced by Top West Coast Music Producer "Meech Wells" who is "Mary Wells" the Motown Legends child. Mary Wells Toured with The Temptations? Meech is best known for producing a large portion of the hit "Snoop Dogg" Songs, he even produced a song with Snoop Dogg and George Clinton and six songs on Snoop Dogg's "The Last Meal" album. Anyway, I was a fan of his growing up and we got together to make music in early 2000. We made the greatest song together called "We Can Party" which is a song that both types of people could vibe to. It's a DOPE ass West Coast beat with real clever party lyrics that have nothing to do with money, once this artist sent me a demo package because he wanted my company to manage him, I watched one video and his music was much the same as all the other rappers, at that point I saw folks flashing Money around like their the only artist on the planet that has a decent record deal. That was it I canceled the YouTube video and when he called I let him know, the truth. What you rap about simply isn't my thing and I don't figure we will be a solid match because I have to be into the music I represent so artists and bands I work with have to do it for the love and you can always tell because that's what makes the great ones. I don't really like it when artists are not being real and true to themselves. I don't Rap about money/cash, I have three full albums and you never observe me bragging about my money/cash, I make more income then all these cats and some of them will become my customer one day. It will be at some point before realizing their going need to record a second album and after they realize that the royalty advances, studio time, tour support, promotion, new media, social networking, publicists, artist management, music managers, all that cost cash so presently you are in major debt to a record label that wants your publishing, touring revenue and merchandise sales revenue and there is no other option for you but wait and record new meaningless music driven by your poor circumstances, at that point you watch your second album fail commercially because your singles suck. I have 30 songs on my Triple Album all singles with two songs produced by a major multi-platinum music producer. I also have over 100 DOPE urban beats, Pop, R&B, Hip Hop, West Coast, I am available to work on a song with anybody that has style, character, personality, and wittiness. You have to live it and do it for the love or I'm not messing you.
Getting an appointment with music management:
With this preliminary information in hand, it is presently possible to narrow the rundown of prospective managers you will want to pursue. Fortunately, getting a name and a telephone number from directory and getting an appointment are two very different tasks as with any fruitful business person, a talent manager with a track record and the steeple of established, pay producing artist will in all likelihood be surrounded by secretaries and assistants whose job is to screen out everybody wants 15 minutes of his or her or her time. That's the reason "cold pitches" only here and there work. This challenge facing the new artist, at that point, is to discover ways to make the initial contact an option that is other than only a cold pitch.
Because the music business is filled on personal relationships, the best way to break the ice is through a mutual friend, preferably another entertainment professional whose assessment the prospective manager respects. This sets the stage for you by putting the music management in a receptive mindset before the first gathering. However, except if you already have a contract with a major record company, a booking agency, or music publisher who has a direct interest in helping you obtain a quality music management situation, this technique for getting in the door is generally not going to be available for you.
Another technique that has gained popularity over the past decade is the "hired firearm" approach. Many influential entertainment attorneys may be hired by new music artists to make introductions and set up appointments and additions with the individual's music business. Most charge an hourly expense for their services; however, there are other forms of compensation, including percentage arrangements if their efforts lead to a deal. Be sure to ask around about expenses and integrity. While lawyers are bound by a code of music professionals morals, there is as yet the potential for abuse.
Before you start flipping through the music business index, a word of caution the order regarding the hired firearm approach. Attorneys are the same as the influential individuals they introduce their customers too. Their reputations, credibility are the stock in trade. No reputable, associated attorney will risk that by taking on a customer who does not appear liable to succeed. Top music management rely on the judgment of their attorneys, so you won't be prepared to offer yourself as if the attorney were a music management or a record company. On the off chance that you aren't absolutely persuaded you can do that, you're not ready.
On the off chance that the friend of a friend and hired firearm approaches are workable alternatives, the following best and about the main other approach is for you to go directly to the music management through letters or telephone calls. At that point be prepared for disappointment. Rarely will the switchboard put you through to the top on the first try? You will frequently have to persuade a subordinate that the boss should talk to you personally. This can become an art form. You can also pay for big profits. In the music business, as in many recipes to industries, never underestimate the power of secretaries or personal assistance. Regularly, they can get you in the door in the event that they want to. The key here is a combination of professionalism and persistence without being a nuisance. On the off chance that every one of artists gave up trying because somebody let him know or her "no" or put him off, there would be very couple of stars around today.
About getting in the door, a high percentage of leaders we talk to trust that they consider the barriers they throw up to be a trial of persistence and self-assurance. "The general population with the drive to make it figure out how to get any attention," was the manner by which the president of the large presumes effective see put it.
One final word on getting that all-important appointment: the more activity you can create, the better chance you have of going to the attention of individuals who can open the right doors. Country singer Dwight Yoakum is a decent case in point. Back in the mid-1980s, the native Kentuckian moved to Los Angeles and built up a loyal after of fans, radio, and press individuals thereby releasing his own record playing top showcase clubs like the Palomino in North Hollywood. This was some time before her brother signed. He had created such a buzz alone that the music establishment never again ignores him. That formula keeps on writing examples of overcoming adversity each year.
Assuming you have secured the initial appointment, remember that the purpose is merely to introduce yourself to them music management and laid the groundwork that we have to a more detailed exploratory conference. Be brief and to the point, and don't waste a music managers time. You want to make a decent first impression and create curiosity about yourself. That means being organized, succinct, and businesslike. Above all, be prepared.
Making a positive first impression with music management:
before initial contact with any perspective music management, ought to prepare a pack that incorporates a cover letter stating your identity and why you want to talk to the music management. Is important that you pass on how he came to choose the person in question. On the off chance that a friend of your talent manager and is just another one of us music professionals and has referred you, you should make reference to the fact this letter. At the very least, should refer to recommendations or reference from inside the industry. You should make reference to the names of the individuals making the recommendations, especially in the event that they are notable respect. To not make reference to a name in the event that it would be us. The cover letter should list your name, address, and phone number, and ought to refer to the encased unit.
The unit ought to contain pictures and information about you, including:
1. at least 8" x 10" photograph of yourself.
2. Talent Management: A brief a couple of page biography. Puts forward the nature of your acts, experience, and other relevant information for example whether you write your very own material, have been associated with other name acts, and so forth
3. A brief statement of goals and requirements.
4. Other sporting things, for example, trade press newspaper clippings, a rundown of important past appearances, and information on future bookings, especially those that music managers could attend.
5. Tape or a few of the best songs or routines. Tape ought to be as professional as possible.
Remember, the utilizing manager will be forming a crucial part first impression of you based on what the individual in question finds in the sales unit. You rarely get another opportunity to make a favorable impression.
This kind of presentation, combined with your ability to lead the first telephone conversation or personal interview and organize, articulate, and businesslike manner will improve your chances of the talent manager becoming interested in. The person in question will appreciate the fact that you are a music professionals approach to the entertainment business, that you have at least a basic understanding of the importance of music management and organization, and above all, that you are realistic in your expectations of what a music management can and cannot accomplish for you.
All this may appear presence of mind, and it is, but you will be surprising what a limited number of artists take the trouble to make a decent first impression thusly. Believe us; it makes a difference with music managers. Simply being professional is a prime indicator the have the potential to be a long haul artist and that is not simply one more thrill seeker or somebody with a decent voice a little else. Of course, all the smooth presentations in the world won't compensate for lack of talent but of the talent is there, this kind of presentation will probably treat you a closer look by a pro. Face it; everybody is searching for talented, savvy, persistent individuals. This sort of presentation is your best bet for separating yourself in the thousands of others would be artists all competing for a couple of minutes of the top music management time.
A word of caution about the all-important first impression: it cuts two ways. You can cause yourself enormous harm in the initial interview by making fundamental mistakes. For instance, never be rude or arrogant; make demands for large advances, or voice and realistic goals. No compelling reason to talk and went to listen remember what has been emphasized before talent alone is never enough. Attitude, cooperation, self-assurance, perseverance, and drive and personality are similarly as important, if not more so. Talent is everywhere nowadays qualities aren't. An experienced talent manager can usually enlighten a great deal concerning these intangibles from the first gathering. On the off chance that you report if your report card is bad, there will be a second gathering.
Try again and again and again
you managed to get a foot in the door and save yourself successfully, things should begin to happen for you. If not, don't stop. A combination of resourcefulness, inventiveness, and process persistence is the main formula that will finally pay profits for you. Nothing will happen except if you make it happen.
On the off chance that you prevailing with regards to making initial contact but failed to make the cell, look for the music management advice as to how you can strengthen your weak focuses. You can obtain priceless information by tuning in to what an experienced music management has to say. In the event that the music management feels the talent is there but personality hasn't adequate time to cast a ballot to career, ask the person in question to refer you to other artist management and music business figures.
Regardless of the result of the gathering, strive to establish maintain great report with initial contacts. Regularly, to be the first in a series of breaks that will lead to the realization of your goals. It is also possible that a manager may not be interested today may greatly interested some point not far off. Things change; never near the door
Finding an artist: What the music management sees
Music managers, especially younger and less experienced ones, have as many hurdles to clear as the new artist do. Finding a promising act whose process battling a promising artist to have his talent, realistic perspective on the industry, and an ability to take advice and work hard isn't easy. It significantly more troublesome.
