Making a living in music is still a feasible goal. In fact, there are more resources now than ever for artists to earn considerable revenue.

However, most artists treat their career as a product and not a business. If I were JUST selling my music I'd be leaving a good chunk of change on the table.

Also, this article is not for the people who somehow think that anyone who wants to make money off their music doesn't 'love' their craft... spare me the headache.

Just because a musician is just as good at their business side as they are at their music doesn't make them any less of an artist. It makes them more accomplished and well rounded.

That being said, here are some things I did to make a good jump in my music revenue!


We've all heard, "It takes money to make money."

And it's true to an extent, but I don't want other artists to think just because they don't have a budget they can't have their music dreams come true.

Start out small. Even if it's just $10 or $20 a week in advertising, but YOU HAVE TO start somewhere.

The spending I particularly increased on was my Twitter and Facebook budget. I use programs like and to handle finding new customers and scheduling posts to make my business more streamlined.

There are free options to sites like these, but it's well worth the investment to get the premium versions.

Again, don't think you have to spend $1,000/month in advertising right off the bat! Start with maybe $50/month if that's all you have to spend on your music. 

TRACK your results and see if it's working. If not, then use some of the marketing tips on the blog to increase your music sales and conversions.


Nearly a decade ago when I started making music I only had one product to sell: music.

But as any good business owner will tell you, I needed to expand what I could offer to my audience.

Artists told me they couldn't find a place online to get good, genuine music promotion. Being a producer myself with a once smaller audience, I knew the problem all too well.

So, I started offering organic music promotion services.

Word got around about the service, and I've since been getting more recognized artists purchasing from my service! 

Maybe you don't have a big enough audience to offer promotion, but you can make t-shirts, tote bags, hats, you name it!

Be creative and poll your audience to see what else they'd be interested in buying connected to your music.


Music services that are making money usually have no problems in sharing it! You can earn a check from popular services online simply by promoting their products.

I knew that Music Crowns offered popular services for artists, so I started promoting them on my blog and social media accounts.

I also promote other products and services in my Next Level Marketing Center and earn income from that.

Affiliate marketing is an easy way to earn income because you don't have to actually make the product, you just have to draw attention to someone else's products.


Good news! If you want to start earning money from music promotions you can send traffic to my page and I'll give you a commission!

But once that's done you should be all set!

Here is where you can get the affiliate links of mine to start earning money off my promotion services:


If you're not selling your merchandise or songs try tweaking the pricing.

Or maybe you don't think you're earning enough from merchandising. The goal is to find pricing equilibrium.

Example 1: I used to sell my ebook, Make Them Beg To Buy Your Music, for $5. I then wrote an additional 7 chapters to the book, made an expanded edition with even more valuable content, and was justified in increasing the price.

Example 2: I offer sales on my instrumentals for buy 1 get 1 free and buy 2 get 3 free sometimes to boost revenue. If I feel like sales are slumping, I may pass out a limited time coupon code. FOMO (fear of missing out) can be an incentive for artists to get off the fence and buy music.


I opened up a second site,, which helps artists grow their SoundCloud followers, likes, and reposts for free!

The site makes money off Google Adsense and I've placed banners for promotion and instrumentals on the pages for the artists who want to take advantage of more opportunities.

With an already buzzing YouTube audience of over 400K+ subscribers, Kid Travis wanted his Instagram profile to start gaining some of that same traction.

While you can get some spill over audience from YouTube, Kid Travis knew that Instagram ad campaigns could boost his presence on IG even further!

He discovered that trying to run Instagram ads yourself vs. having us add our years of experience and expertise to them made a huge difference!

His main goal was to achieve new followers who are seriously interested in his journey as an artist.

Kid Travis already had amazing talent but needed to combine his music genius with some marketing expertise to get the best of both worlds.

We were able to bring out the heart of his music through paid ads by editing & optimizing his existing videos and properly researching and structuring his ad campaigns.

The end results: We were able to consistently and predictably gain followers averaging between $0.25-$0.35 per follower (including a bulk of the promotion being done in high cost English speaking countries such as United States, United Kingdom, Australia, & Canada) resulting in around 4,000 new, engaged followers/month on Instagram.
