Ever wonder why the majority of artists don't make it?
So many just don't take the industry seriously enough.
Always one foot in and one foot out. They may say one thing, but their actions say a completely different thing.
You're treating your music (and your music business) like it's on the backburner; like it's definitely Plan B!
Here's the thing...
It doesn't have to happen overnight, but ultimately, as an artist you have to build into growing towards a team. Without the creative vision and dedication it takes to build a creative empire, there's no way it could ever work and be sustainable...
but again that doesn't have to happen overnight.
Grow to building out your brand, take the first steps towards creating consistently, look around in your ecosystem and see if there is an offer... then start scaling.
But you have to be honest with yourself, in order to get real growth.
Here are some things to consider when developing a strategy and sticking to it (which is the key...
YOOO... It's Willy Chill!!
I just got back from a very NOT chill road trip across the country from Chicago to Colorado, Colorado to the Grand Canyon, then, of course, the canyon back to Chicago!! By far one of the most dangerous and challenging endeavors I've ever experienced in my life so far!
BUT... Vinnie also told a riveting story about Hennessy this week too on the MIC podcast!
You'll have to be the judge of which was better from the episode...
- Apple Podcasts
But naturally, Vinne got this incredible story out of me about how I hiked to the highest natural hot spring in North America (up 13,000ft) and spent 4 days at the bottom of the Grand Canyon (down 7,000ft) all in less than a week..... what a way to start the Music Industry Chat (MIC) podcast this past week!
But outside of all the lovely vacation stories, we also chatted at length about some really interesting digital advertising strategies we've been working to create and test inside the Artist...
Entertainment is officially on lockdown! With most states canceling gigs, tours are dropping, and restaurants and bars are now completely closed. A lot of you are out of music work & side work as bartenders or servers.
Here is an article from the Chicago Tribune about a recent announcement for Illinois residents. A state lockdown. And I know many other states are experiencing this already.
How will this lockdown affect the music industry? Is this going to shift consumer behavior? And what steps are you taking to further your brand?
The end of this quarantine seems to be unknown, so it is important to get a grasp of how the industry will shift.
During this next week, instead of binge-watching Netflix, panicking over the news, and procrastinating your music career join our 7-day live Music Industry Chats called "Entertainment Lockdown" The live streams will occur every day at 12:00 pm CST between 3/22 - 3/28.
Aren't you tired of doing the same thing over and over with your music career and getting the same results?
Are you running out of strategies to market yourself?
Ready to start making money with your hobby?.....
Well, the truth is you have to treat it like a real business. And in business, you are always learning new things from mentors, consultants, and other perspectives that can help you think outside the box.
In the call, I will get to know your current strategies and provide you with a clear plan to elevate your music career.

@AC_Vinnie here, ya’ll!
Throughout my travels as a musician and as a music consultant, there are occasionally artists that strike me as having ‘it’. Not just talent and charisma, but some extra factor that you can’t quite quantify. One of those potent personalities is most definitely that of Joe Johnson, AKA “Semi-Average Joe”. He wears many hats, but perhaps his most prominent is that of “Storyteller”. He connects with an audience in a way that I’ve never quite seen. It’s almost as if he’s calming an unruly herd to take it on a journey it didn’t even know it wanted.
So I asked Joe to come and teach our members about it! Let me tell you more about our host and we’ll dive into some of the fun that happened during the webinar that we decided to poignantly call “Master Audience Engagement Onstage”.
Joe Johnson is a multi-instrumental studio and live musician, composer, and sound designer. He...
