Getting in touch with your inner hustler

I know as musicians, what we really wanna do is make good music.  the rest, we wouldn’t mind a team of elves handling, but of course its not that easy.
We may not like it, but if we want to set ourselves appart as musicians, we have to take that extra step and market ourselves.
A closed mouth does not get fed and no matter how good your stuff is, if you’re not constantly reminding people to listen to you and why they should listen to you, you probably won’t get listened to.
that sounds bad, but its just a matter of perspective.  if you look at it the way I do, its a good thing, because that means I have control over my success to some degree and that it doesn’t all have to be luck and good looks :)

3 things to keep in mind that may help you stay motivated when marketing.

1. When you follow a system like the one we teach in our free course, every step you take and move you make is permanent, meaning, you can pick up on it later and/or it may benefit you for a long time.  a simple example is the creation of an album, which can be marketed unto infinity.

2. A lot of people really like music and are always on the look-out for new music.  As long as you stay professional and don’t get all in people’s faces, they will welcome your marketing efforts gladly.  good music is the key here again.

3. Try to have fun with your marketing and stick with what you’re comfortable doing..   to me, that is online.  some people may be more outgoing and like doing shows, concerts andother events.  it doesn’t really matter, because there are many ways to accomplish the same goals.
