Crowdstart - Ebook by Ariel Hyatt

 

Want to rock a crowdfunding campaign? You’re in luck! The game changer that allowed me to take my brand and business from $500K to $1 million per year was raising money — specifically, a crowdfunding campaign which raised over $60,000.

 

A few years ago, I lost almost all of my worldly possessions when my apartment caught on fire. I came home from work one day and my home was burned beyond recognition; I saved only my clothes and a few items. I had to start re-assembling the contents of my life one item at a time.

 

But what was truly interesting to me was what happened after the fire. People I considered my best friends barely came to help, and many other “close” friends came up with excuses for why they couldn’t. However, people I never expected to see came over and were incredibly generous. A passing college acquaintance arrived at my apartment with bleach, gloves and a mask, and helped me scrub the soot and smoke off of every single salvageable item in my kitchen. I had barely spoken to this man in over 10 years, yet there he was.

Lasso by Toneden - Put acquisition and engagement on autopilot

Lasso makes it easy to acquire new fans and customers from anywhere across the web.

 

Lasso is a widget that lives in the corner of your webpage. It’s an incredibly powerful way to convert anonymous visitors into real customers, drive social engagement, and build a database of highly engaged customers.

 

For years, pop-ups have remained as the de-facto method of getting a visitor’s email or information. Our goal was to craft an experience that was new yet familiar, engaging visitors meaningfully without getting in their way.

 

Examples:

 

Signup Form

Facebook-driven signup form allows you to build your audience constantly

Social Unlocks

Follow (on Spotify, Soundcloud) or give your E-mail to Get a Discount Coupon, Download or something else

Contest & Giveaways

A powerful mechanism not only to convert website visitors into registered fans, but also boost commitment across multiple social media platforms at once.

HOW TO Master Your Income - Key Cash Streams

Quite often artists, especially young ones, simply don’t even factor in revenue streams for their work. Many artists are simply waiting on some “moment”. Some “big break” – an article pops off, or some video goes viral. They’re waiting on what I call their “Fair God Mother Moment”- some A&R Fairy comes down to earth and grants them a record contract. They think, “Then, …maybe then… – I’ll get paid.”This. Doesn’t. Work.

music distribution / promotion for physical and digital mediums

In this articel you get some Tips for Music licensing, Social Media, Press and Radio Promotion.

 

"Some music review sites will allow you to pay $15-$25 to expedite a review. Not surprisingly, that’s a growing trend on the web. Established music publicity companies are always for hire and they will generally have a large database of music reviewers, bloggers and beat writers. A lot of publicists will want a monthly retainer to work on press, because they legitimately often need 3 months to show results. It’s generally a slow process."

Seo for Musicians

When we talk to other musicians about music marketing, search engine optimization is a topic that comes up often.And why not? It’s free, it’s known as a highly effective marketing channel for millions of businesses, and it works. The downside is that it’s complex, time consuming, slow to see results, and it’s known as a bit of a dark art.
