File Under: Music Business News, Making Money With Music, Raising Money and Crowdfunding

One of the most common questions we get from musicians is: how can I make money from music? It’s a huge topic we’ve covered here at The DIY Advisor, but if you're in the Chicago area on Saturday, July 23rd, you can see us live as we do our talk at 3pm on "Making Money with Music" at IMSTA FESTA. The event is free with registration and will be located at SAE Institute Chicago (location/directions here).

And then there’s also our 15-hour video online class, Making Money With Music.

Given how important this topic is for musicians, we’re happy to speak at the International Music Software Trade Association (IMSTA) Fest that SAE Institute Chicago is hosting. It's bringing together some of the top music technology companies (PreSonus, Native Instruments, Yamaha, and many more) so musicians can network, interact face-to-face, and attend panels and talks with experts that can help their careers. Some of the topics we’ll be talking about include:

  • getting digital distribution,
  • making money from merchandise,
  • licensing your music for commercials, movies, and TV,
  • crowdfunding,
  • getting grants, and more.

So, if you’re in the Chicago area, register now (it's free), and join us at our talk Saturday, July 23rd. We'll stick around to answer any questions you may have -- so find us after the talk!
