If you're in the Oklahoma City area, come join us at Saturday, March 18th at the Jewels for the Journey Oklahoma State Music Conference. Tickets are on sale now and will be held at the Metro Tech Conference Center (location/direction here).
We'll be speaking at the all-day conference with renowned music industry attorney, Ben McLane, on various DIY Advisor topics such as…
Making Money With Music
Based on our 15-hour online class we'll give an overview on dozens of ways musicians can generate income from their music. You'll learn how to maximize the money you make while minimizing the money you spend promoting it. We go step-by-step through proven techniques for establishing steady revenue streams in the music business -- including: distribution, merchandising, licensing, affiliate marketing, and much, much more.
Understanding Your Legal Rights
A large part of making money with music -- royalties, licensing, and more -- comes from copyright law. Although we naturally touch on this, we're honored to share the conference with Los Angeles music industry entertainment law attorney, Ben McLane, who will tackle this topic as well as answer your questions.
Branding & Building Your Persona
Most people who hear your music won't meet you. Instead, they'll only know you through your music, your web and social presences, media and press coverage, and your live shows. It's essential to present your persona in a holistic way so as to maximize your image and the message you're sending through these disparate channels. We'll tackle this topic and identify key things you need to have ready to manage and own your persona.
Marketing and Getting Media Attention & PR
As a DIY musician, you don't have a blockbuster Hollywood budget to build awareness of you and your music. Instead, you need to do what most businesses do: narrow and target your audience. We'll talk about the importance of knowing who your target fans are as well as the best tips to get media and press coverage for your music.
Plus, as always, we'll stick around after the event to answer as many of your questions as possible.
So, if you’re in the Oklahoma City area, join us Saturday, March 18th! See you there!
