Realistic Marketing For Indie Artists
As a Christian Marketing Promoter that went through this course for observational purposes, I can say that this is a realistic strategy to effectively promote music. If you consistently work hard you will receive results! For musicians, the step-by-step online video sessions assumes you already have an album recorded and mastered and are ready to start selling it. The sessions also assumes you already have a fundamental knowledge of many of the popular social media tools available such as Facebook and Twitter. When applied correctly (this is the key point, don’t deviate), the techniques you will find in this course really do work! But, what sold me above anything else was to see the transformation of the participating musicians who was once at their wits-in became suddenly very confident and had high expectations because of the knowledge, web tools, and connections they received! It reminded me of the bible verse Hosea 4:6 “My people perish from a lack of knowledge.”
What I Didn’t Like
If there is anything I would change about this course it would be the initial advertising video that speaks about the amount of money received using the marketing techniques. Unfortunately, many other so called successful stories have a similar advertising pitch and has caused one to hesitate and probably completely ignore. I would also replace the squeeze page with a newer design. Nowadays, the appearance of a web page seem to be very important to artists and fans alike. But, I still took the leap of faith and I praise God he didn’t allow me to waste my money investing in this course! In fact, I jumped on this while it was much less than what it is now! I surely didn’t want to be a bad steward of my finances! I would not be able to be trusted with a greater amount, right (Matthew 25:20-21)? Needless to say, I was very grateful to find out that John Oszajca (founder) is straight up, legit, and very passionate about what he delivers!
Outstanding Assistance Provided 24/7
This guy go out of the way to stay on point answering questions and taking much of his personal time around the clock assisting anyone who need extra help setting up their wordpress, squeeze page, sales page, auto responder, I mean all of the tools and sources used in the course to capture a sell! Personally, I believe John and his staff is blessed to have so much patience and should go straight Gospel with his service! But nonetheless, Devine Jamz took the Christian route with his secular creation for obvious reasons! My hope is that you will be convinced to take a leap of faith as well! It’s sad to see those of you who are struggling at doing God’s will but irritated because you don’t see the results you are looking for. I pray that God give you the discernment to see what I seen that made me purchase this course! It’s work and yes you will need to invest in your self more! But, it’s paramount that artists start learning the technical and business end of being a musician! And marketing is the most important business end for any artist who is trying to receive a fan base that purchase their music!
How To Give Away Music
First of all, record labels are not impress with giving away music. They want to see that your large fan base is buying your music so that they can be reassured they will receive a return on the investment they put into marketing your project! But, the reality is that indie artists need to get recognized through establishing a rapport with fans before they start selling their talent. And what’s really sad is that due to the lack of knowledge (Remember Hosea 4:6 “My people perish from a lack of knowledge.”), artists are giving away their music without demanding at least a contact lead to follow-up before they know who downloaded a song! Folks, there is a smarter way at doing this. There is a psychological method that you are not aware of but need to be! Not only can you sell your music, but why not start selling video music lessons and instrument lessons too!
Market What You Learned
Here is how you can do it! As you go through each step-by-step video session, you get to download and save each video to keep permanently! Then as you master the techniques, you can easily flip it and start training others for a fee or you just provide the service your self for even a greater amount! And as I already mentioned, why not go further and market your talent through voice lessons, instrument lessons, studio time, etc. I have other blogs that I created to show you how singers and musicians make a living through video exchange services!
Help Christians Foremost
Now if you’re a Christian as you say you are, please don’t do what some are doing by charging members of the body of Christ with astronomical prices! Greed will never get you anywhere! I haven’t figured out why there are Christian marketing services that price their services so high and I’m not judging them either. I’m aware what Apostle Paul states about making a living through ministry in all! Just remember, (Matthew 19:24) “… it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God”. If your music has a demand for it, eventually you will be able to sell songs in a profitable and sustainable way. Personally, my true reward I’m planning for is mainly in the after life. Here on earth I want to use my gift along with this particular service to help the body of Christ save more souls! 1Cr 9:23, “I do all this for the sake of the gospel, that I may share in its blessings”. God bless brothers and sisters … with much love!
