There is one other thing music artists have to realize.
The internet is ruining your mindset. Everyone wants everything to be free nowadays.
Let's just face the facts though. (The quicker you learn the facts, the faster you'll be able to achieve success)
NO ONE is going to give you their BEST products for free. Get over it. If you want to get ahead that's something you're going to have to embrace.
I may give away a ton of great info on my blog, but you better believe the marketing information that can really get you ahead is either in my book or in my course.
Now, to a lot of artists credit, I'm really glad that the reviews on the book have been great. Keep them coming please!
But, I've literally had people call me a scammer because I'm selling a book (Not to mention there's not ONE bad review on it). Just because an artist doesn't give a crap enough about their music career to spend $15 on a book that'll help them get wayyyy more results than they're seeing right now doesn't make me a scammer.
Even if it's $15, artists act like they have to 'plan' to purchase it.
Like I said before, that's just a no brainer thing you do, there's really no hesitation for things like that whenever you want to sincerely get ahead in music.
We indie artists have to start putting things into perspective. You buy things that accelerate growth! This is business sense, not just music sense.
The reason I pay for Facebook ads? It accelerates growth.
The reason I pay for marketing for Twitter? It accelerates growth.
The reason I pay for my email list provider? It accelerates growth.
The reason I pay people to work on my business with me? It accelerates growth.
The reason I bought books and courses on music marketing? It accelerates growth.
If I hadn't bought them, I wouldn't be as far as I am now.
