I feel the need to further elaborate on what exactly BandCamp is and what it can do for you. BandCamp will give you a place for your fans to go when they want to listen to your music and what to go to your website. You can publish about yourself or even talk about whats happening. Here they can buy music from you and keep in close connect by constantly looking at your website. This is a direct to fan service that you can give fans a reason to buy by letting them know you.
I have recently discovered TuneCore a music distribution service where for a fee they will send your money to places like Spotify and iTunes. This seems like a good service because even though you give them your music to distribute you retain one hundred percent ownership. Not only that but also all the revenue your music makes for only a limited fee. For just a one time fee of seventy five dollars you publish an unlimited amount of music so if you ask me it sounds like a great idea! TuneCore
To be competent when dealing with things digital you need to have an understanding on the web and how it works. First of all what goes on the web stays on the web its impossible to remove it completely. So you show always be cautious what it is your posting online. Anything online can be modified which means it may not be the original thing or isn’t the same as it first was. This can lead to people using other peoples stuff as their own or even lying about what it is they look like. You should be knowable of these things and know how they work in order to fully understand.
You want to give people a reason to buy your music none the less a reason to want to listen to you. Think of a artist you support do you share their stuff? Do you just listen to them and if you do do you pay for it? This is where giving people a reason to buy your stuff becomes important and makes a difference from just make stuff to giving them an incentive. Its not as simple as selling your music anymore but its more as people trying to pay for your life. Why should people do that? Thats what you need to figure out.
I think it has become harder to monetize your music. Its become even harder to retain solo ownership without someone else making a profit from your material. I say this because once your stuff goes online anyone can access it. Change it into anything they want to and also use it for their own needs. The way to start making money and become successful is to make sure you have a fan base. This can be done many ways but one of the best ways to do this is to make yourself known. Make your creations viral with the easy access of internet this should be easy. TuneCore
Mixing new songs and tracking the vocals have been hard for me but I have kept going at it and never giving up. I found myself not liking my own voice and critiquing myself by comparing to others and it has seemed to be the hardest. I constantly try on the music I make and hopefully it becomes something one day.
I feel the need to discuss this ever increasing topic and post my position about this subject. I feel that the importance of fame hasn’t been the same since the internet has come around. It would even seem that the reasons people become famous has changed. The stupidity of it all has become the fact of wanting publicity more than anything. Link. This is what the result of internet has lead to. The need to be know for the stupidest reasons and the dumbest ideas. Fame has lost its purpose and only keeps me wondering how low will people stoop.
